Thumbs up Aero- the Phoenix

JABAG,

Yes, now Aero has banished the Canadians who almost brought them to their knees, they are emerging like a Phoenix from the ash and given time and luck will emerge as the only competition to Caverton . They have a beautiful SA365 restored to the glory of the original Aero colors and soon the EC135s and S76 C+ will be arriving in Nigeria.
After their arrogant ways and failure to bankrupt Aero, CHC has now gone on to partner Nigerdock, but Jagal is no Nigerian and they will just be screwed same as Bristow and Shell were. As long as CHC has the same people in charge they will never get any where. Anyway, they are not an indigenous company and the days of such alternative companies are finally drawing to an end . Naija now has the money that local companies can buy modern helicopters and we have enough pilots and engineers with the skills and experience to manage our own companies at a level the equal or better than foreign companies who just want to bring in pilots who are not as well qualified as our own and take the money out of our country. Its time the government took over the funding of more Naija brothers and sisters being trained as pilots and started looking at Zaria and the new flying school in Kwara State benefitting from federal funds to train our own pilots and engineers
