It seems that Aero is still flying its scheduled services but all contract aircraft leased from CHC are grounded because CHC hasn't been paid.

Virgin/Nigeria Eagle is still flying but the MD resigned last night: V/NE and Aero may both be grounded tomorrow unless the federal government bails them out.

Lots of unhappy rig workers with no offshore helicopters flying: Bristow has only a very limited capacity to be able to help. Night medevac is unlikely to be covered, watch this space.

The farce seems to stem from CHC's attitude since they took over from Schreiner, with the Ibru family then getting involved where they'd previously left things to Schreiner
