Talking about Airport Chief, I see the ex Deputy is now suing IOM Airport. Some might remember him as a reality Airport personalty at LHR!

Jeremy Spake has apparently set up a consultancy with Ann Reynolds, former airport director

The airport was put under "special attention" measures by the CAA in 2019 and still has an enforcement notice in place

I only saw Mr Spake on the 'reality' show. The best aspect of him was that he put the pax first. This was obvious in everything he did. Some may not have liked his flambouyant personality but he wanted the customer to be king - as we were urged many years ago!!

I would hazard a guess that corporate life did not suit as he (possibly) did not put the company first. I was raised on the old fashioned line:
  • Look after the customer
  • The customer will look after the company
  • The company will look after you
How very 1960s ...

Today [7th] marks the end of the 5-week viability assessment by Blue Islands for operating flights between (GCI-)JER-IOM; does anyone know what the passengers numbers looked like at all...?!

I'd imagine pretty poor, I saw about 10 people get off when I was waiting for my flight at Jersey.

Anyone any ideas as to what Scottish Government/Loganair Twin Otter G-SGTS, was doing this afternoon operating GLA-IOM-GLA? Just been buzzed by it in Castletown as it left Ronaldsway.

Well, it was only on the ground at IOM for approximately 30 minutes, so perhaps it was dropping someone (or something...?!) off; I wonder whether one of their ATR aircraft might be in need of a spare part(s)...?!

If you mean PPL license flights from the Club Southside, still very poor since covid.
Executive Jets into the FBO have a healthy increase this year, hence the upgrade of the facilities.

This will be of interest to same locally based e-commerce companies & Easyjet to Gatwick.

Yes, just heard that. Probably won't help later Loganair shedules as I don't think cross runway is night lighting rated.

From the picture that I have seen, the aircraft involved was Beech Duke, N82EC. It had flown from Saarbrucken and has visited Ronaldsway infrequently in the past.
