"In Belize,a CARICOM INTERNAL REGIONAL AIRLINE was proposed in 2008, but CARICOM AIRLINES of BELIZE, lacks the venture investor to get it off the ground. First exploratory aircraft was to be the ANGEL, a twin engine with seven passengers, or 1600 lbs of cargo, to prove the trade and tourism, and commerce activities joining the 15 CARICOM countries together. This first aircraft costs $900,000 usd and had long range ( 1700 miles ). The engines were designed for 2000 hours before overhaul. The goal was to prove the CARICOM market conditions with the smaller aircraft and then jump to the BT 67, twin turbo propeller aircraft on the second aircraft, after proving a routing that serviced the requirements of CARICOM commerce, that can carry 10,000 lbs, or passengers, typically used for troops and cargo movements in third world countries, or in ANTARCTICA. Typical costs on the long range ( 1600 miles ) BT 67 are $1900 usd per hour. BT 67 aircraft cost about $ 4 1/2 million usd."
