Boeing 757
The Boeing
Boeing
757 is a mid-size, narrow-body twin-engine jet airliner that was designed and built by Boeing
Boeing
Commercial Airplanes. It is the manufacturer's largest single-aisle passenger aircraft and was produced from 1981 to 2004. The twinjet has a two-crew member glass cockpit, turbofan engines of sufficient power to allow takeoffs from relatively short runways and higher altitudes, a conventional tail and, for reduced aerodynamic drag, a supercritical wing design. Intended to replace the smaller three-engine 727 on short and medium routes, the 757 can carry 200 to 295 passengers for a maximum of 3,150 to 4,100 nautical miles (5,830 to 7,590 km), depending on variant. The 757 was designed concurrently with a wide-body twinjet, the 767 and, owing to shared features, pilots can obtain a common type rating that allows them to operate both aircraft. The 757 was produced in two fuselage lengths

Presidential Airways (Virginia)
Presidential Airways (IATA: XV, ICAO: n/a , Call sign: Washington Eagle) was an airline with its headquarters on the grounds of Washington Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia.[1] It was founded in 1985 by Harold J. (Hap) Pareti, formerly an officer at People Express Airlines, (known as "PEOPLExpress") as a low-cost carrier, with Boeing 737-200 service from Dulles to Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts commencing October 10 of that year. A small fleet of B737-200 jetliners were initially operated by the airline. Presidential then expanded to a number of destinations, merging with the original Colgan Air in 1986 and adding the British Aerospace BAe 146-200 jetliner and orders for the de Havilland Canada DHC-8-300 Dash 8 turboprop to its fleet (only two of the DHC-8-300s were ever received). It was unable to sustain its expansion, however, and became a regional feeder for Continental Airlines in 1987 and then United Airlines in 1988
