So it seems that Caverton's Dauphins are grounded because of the lack of FDR. The A109E is greater than 2730 kgs; does it not also require an FDR? Is it still flying? I also hear rumours that despite the financial hit this may be causing them, they are considering buying a fixed wing now!! They've also just fired their Chief Pilot. It must be getting more difficult for them to hire anybody with their 5/1 touring policy, low pay and high turnover of staff, particularly senior staff. Looks as if Sunny may have another Southern Air on his jands.
