As reported elsewhere, Air Alderney has applied to operate a scheduled cargo service between Guernsey and Alderney with EC155 equipment and two BN-2T Islanders as back-up. Mark Darby's objection, in a letter to Dep. Barry Paint, is available to view here.

It had an oil leak on arrival at LGW apparently & according to my source is awaiting an engine change.

The new Dornier is due in the next 4 months. Has there been any news on this, or is the date likely to be extended again?

Difficult to confirm at the moment. RUAG's record has been quite poor but expect by Q3.

G-SAYE

Just wondering if anyone knows what happened with G-SAYE on the GR203 flight this morning. It circled over Guernsey for a while before landing. There seemed to be lots of airport vehicle activity waiting for the a/c, which didn't go to the normal stand.

ITV News reports undercarriage problems and an emergency declared, but the a/c landed safely. It remained on the runway while pax were taken off.

G-LGIS
On the Dornier theme, this a/c has not flown since the 17th December 2017. Does anyone know why it has been out of service for so long? This same airframe did not fly between July 2016 and March 2017, spending 6 months back at the factory. Another 2.5 months in the hangar at GCI seems more than a major overhaul. A lame duck?

G-LGIS came out of the hanger and headed off down the taxiway shortly after the problem with G-SAYE. Perhaps it has just been hanging around as a spare a/c for the last couple of months.

G-LERE
Operated today's GR694 GCI-EMA but abandoned the climb and returned to GCI. Aircraft was on the ground for over 3 hours before departing again as GR1694. Does anyone know the reason for the return to GCI? This kind of thing is not uncommon with GR's ATR72s.

It would have been a technical problem!

Yes, I'm aware of that as Aurigny stated as much on Facebook. I was looking for anything a little more specific.

It could be something as insignificant as a disfunctional light bulb or a faulty electrical connection ... There are more important things in life to worry about!

Aurigny Norwich service?

Anyone know if Aurigny will be operating a weekly Guernsey to Norwich schedule again this summer 2018?

All of the Aurigny flights have been delayed this morning, some the Flybe flights cancelled and others also delayed. Comments on facebook (supported by Aurigny) are that this is caused by not being able to deice the a/c when it is snowing. This sounds rather unusual. Does anyone know the full story behind this? Jersey is operating normally.

By the sounds of things they only have Type I fluid which is not a great deal of use while it is still snowing.

Not exactly a traditional icing region - although I was there March 13 when we had a decent blanket.... still it will be back up to 12 degrees tomorrow!

I know that Guernsey weather is milder than most of the UK, but I'm surprised that they aren't better equipped for de-icing. There are reports of similar weather in JCI which was operating more or less normally.

I can confirm that the above posts are correct. The de-icing fluid available in GCI cannot be used when it is snowing, otherwise it re-freezes. Let's hope that two lots of snow in one month cause a rethink!
