If the livery of California Pacific Airlines doesn’t look familiar to you, that is probably because the airline is not operational yet.

California Pacific Airlines was founded in 2009 and they plan to start revenue flights by the end of 2012. Earlier this week, their first of four Embraer E-170se, was brought to their homebase at McClellan-Palomar Airport (CLD).

CLD is located in Carlsbad, CA, just north of San Diego. They plan to fly to Oakland, Sacramento, and San Jose, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta.

The airline will have their aircraft configured in a two class lay-out with a total of 72 seats on the inside and an impressive livery on the outside. Their original livery plan was not as nice as this one and with the shades of blue and the wave on the tail, I really like what they ended up with.

I wish them well. If I have to say it, they have BIG plans for a fleet of four, 75-seat airplanes. I wish them well, but I have to wonder if they can compete with the other lines that fly those routes. Time will tell.
