Named after the owner and chief pilot’s, Pedro Rodriguez, nickname ‘Chaguito’, Aerochago started operations by November 1982. One L-1049 Freighter was bought and operated in the Caribbean, followed by a L-749A which was purchased in August 1983. In 1988 3 further Super Connies, all former military aircraft, were bought.
