Cougar Airlines started operations in March 2001. The company operates a fleet of 3 Boeing 727-200 "Super 27s". The Super 27 is developed from the B727 with more powerful Pratt and Whitney 217 engines. This allows the aircraft to climb faster and cover a greater distance than the basic 727. The Super 27 cruises at mach 0.8 and at 550mph it is the second fastest Boeing civilian aircraft behind the B747. The program takes you from the airline's main hub at London Stansted Airport for flights to various destinations in England, Ireland, France and Portugal with several scenic approaches and a collection of bad weather including low visibility, heavy rain and crosswind. Also included is a brief presentation of the Captain's instrument panel, flight engineer panel and a chat with the airline's owner and managing director.
