  1. My old general aviation stomping grounds between the Gulf Coast and north AL and GA. KMSL->KPNS is only 257NM and a 1-hour flight in zero wind for a PC-12. I don't see much market in this for any north Alabama families flying to the beaches paying $59/head one way when the drive from Muscle Shoals to Pensacola is only 6 hours and then they'd have to rent wheels on top of that or Uber around. At best only the upper classes would go this route, and I don't think there are many of them in Muscle Shoals (unlike say further south in Birmingham where the drive to PNS is just 4 hours and many Birmingham elites own condos along the Gulf Coast beaches). That said, I wish the carrier well.
