David,

12 Oct 2015 shows up when I go to that link.

Ironically the photo shows him standing in front of N264DB.

Some most disturbing news from the Evening Standard

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crim...-a4129691.html

Sickening is the word that comes to mind.

Even more ironic watching the video, where he shows the aircraft inside, and talks about issues with icing, and what to do.
Descend into warmer air.

Not exactly related, and more of an admin cock-up, but ...

Paul Holroyd (67) of Le Vieux Beaumont, St Peter, appeared in Oxford Crown Court for sentence earlier this month after he admitted not having all of the correct certifications in place.
The Islander was co-piloting a US-registered Dassault Falcon 2000EX EASy private jet – worth up to $30million – between 14 May and 27 October 2017 when he committed the offence.
Now, the Civil Aviation Authority, which prosecuted Holroyd, said that although he held a licence to fly commercially, his ‘type-rating’ – needed to fly a particular model of plane – had not been kept up to date.
A spokesman for the CAA said: ‘We are determined to take action whenever necessary to protect members of the public, including prosecuting pilots who lack the appropriate qualifications to carry out flights.

That`s typical of the CAA, convict a professional pilot nearing the end of an unblemished career, for an admin oversight so as to appear to be doing something about enforcement. Easy meat, lots of records available. But where there are no records, then no action until its too late.

Does seem like that when you see some of the things we all know are happening and that the CAA don't touch because it's too difficult - prosecuting in the above case does seem disproportionate (unless there is more to it than just overflying an LPC).

Front page headline news in today's Jersey Evening Post ...sadly not on-line [yet] so I will try to summarise:

Sala crash prompts illegal air 'taxi' warning

At least six aircraft suspected of being used to operate illegal 'taxi' flights in and out of the Channel Islands are being closely monitored by aviation authorities, the director of civil aviation has revealed.
It goes on to elaborate about the cost-sharing aspects, and 'grey charter', The head of the Channel Islands CAA said "I have been trying to terminate these illegal charters since last year and it has been brought to the fore because of the Emilio Sala incident ... It is something that is prevalent in the Island because we are limited in our air services - it has flourished."

Full article now on-line ....

He flew 64 flights over 5 1/2 months. That is not an admin oversight. He also entered a plea of guilty to forging documents. That is not an admin oversight. :ugh:

These are exactly the cases that should be prosecuted.

I came back to this thread to report that I just learned yesterday that my Jersey-based client has now ceased all recourse to such flights; now I know why.

ilvaporista 17th May 2019 06:47

Operator
 
Isle-Fly have been operating in and out of Jersey for a long time but lost out to the 'grey market'
lt looks like RVL chose the right time to purchase a new King Air.
New additions to the Isle-Fly fleet
How we all wish that this terrible event had never happened. Real legal alternatives have always been available.

MPN11 17th May 2019 18:42

Interesting couple of inputs ... thank you both.

I note RVL made much of their probity in that Feb 2018 notification.

BBC Wales has an investigation of the affair tonight (Monday 20th May) at 20:30.

MPN11 21st May 2019 18:54

Hmmm ... who are these people? Looks like flying an approach below minimums and ignoring ATC. Get-Home-itis with a grey charter on board? Looking forward with interest to th outcome.

I imagine it will be UK only but there are likely workarounds - vpn - proxy.

Unfortunately BBC iplayer somehow blocks the use of VPNs from aboad............................

There was very little about the flight, it was mainly comments by his family and friends and his football career.

I had a discussion with the Editor about it because I thought that if they were going to cover aspects of the flight they should have done a proper job or left it well alone.

Guy's does anyone know if Paul Holroyd used to fly B757s for Flyglobespan? name is familiar.
