Ameriflight, formerly California Air Charter is currently the largest regional air cargo carrier in the world, operating 1700 flights a week to 250 desinations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. The company is now headquartered in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX and has bases in Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Hayward, Burbank, Ontario, Phoenix, San Antonio, Omaha, Louisville, Cincinnati, Lansing, Buffalo, Miami, San Juan and Borinquen.

Currently, the airline operates 29 Piper PA-31-350's, 57 Beech 99's, 46 Fairchild Metroliners, 25 Beech 1900's and 8 Embraer Brasilias.

California Air Charter/Ameriflight's association with the Twin Otter began in 1984 with the lease of two Series 300 aircraft from Bradley Air Services, and a further 7 would be operated over the next six years. The aircraft were generally operated in Southern California, most would never carry any titles, and all would remain in whatever paint scheme they arrived in.
