Don't touch it with a barge pole.

If you are desperate, use the barge pole to push it as far away as possible.

There are a few sites on the internet that mention the name. Sounds like you may wish to distance yourself.

Hey Bert,do a search on my name and see what comes out!!
Seriously folks,if you want to climb the proverbial ladder and fly bigger better faster bits of tin round the sky,its best not to know what the bosses have done to get there,or in fact ,how they keep you in the front seats.
Point in case is another "well known" contract crowd who kicked the CEO back to his native land,replaced him with a local wizzkid who is just as corrupt and crooked.
Aviation,gotta love it

Balloo the Bear.....Hmmmmm

Search was done as someone was curious.I dont particularly give one hoot who folks work for. Just think its not cool to have certain things on the Resume......
Also there are those who would like to work for a good company and for a period longer than 90 days. Life is all about choices, ask the folks who flew the 727 into Zim..........Make your own choice.

Cool

Put it this way, a man who has Gurkha body guards, bullet proof car and won't drink a coke unless it is opened in front of him, clearly has something to hide! Oh and he also prefers to pay for things in cash, usually US out of a brief case

He likes to think that he owns people rather than employs them!

Their attitude? Employees, as a commodity, are expendable.

When they were in Ostend, (Seagreen Cargo) advantage was taken of the blind eye turned.

ALWAYS two sides to every story.......Good to get a positive one.
That would explain the licensing......
Maybe someone is jealous of the guy. Lots of folks in Aviation have done well on a shoe string.
As to Pilots ....We all know or at least should know, that they are the cheapest part to be replaced on any flying machine.

four engine jock

As Bert says always two sides to the story. My views are based on my experience of working with him. I certainly don't envy him. Guys like Richard Branson maybe....... There are bodyguards and then there are bodyguards, his certainly ain't the norm for a "rich guy". The fact remains that he does not treat his staff right, hence the high turn-over of staff. The way he treated the guys at Ostend sucks

Next time you are at a public venue with Mr T, open your eyes.......he is certainly not very trusting of people. One wonders why?

The only good thing I have seen is that apart from his poor brother, he is a good family man.
