Heavylift is a great company with a fanatastic business model, it bought Ozjet really to gain the AOC
Don't you just love this industry?

Wouldn't call it an industry. Looks more like a circus to me; or a very average B-movie maybe?

Cheers for the clarification in regards to CAO/CAR and AOC etc etc. Don't Ozjet still hold the contract for the Derby run, just sub contracting it out to Alliance at the present time? Or has Alliance taken over completely? Perhaps a phone call to the local shire office?

Devil Dead Wood

Mr Leach,

As I am a member of your dead wood, tossed aside to float aimlessly on a sea of nothingness I would like to take the opportunity to put forward an honest appraisal of our situation - I have nothing more to lose.

Ozjet pulled out of Norfolk Island on the 28th of April, just 1 month shy of its end of contractual obligations to the Norfolk Island Government and to their crew of 8. This occurred without any word from Management or any acknowledgement for the loyalty and dedication of their staff and still their has been NOTHING.

It is a shame now to see that the rest of the crew - and they are fantastic crew, the frontline men and women of the organisation are also left high and dried.

I am visiting Brisbane this weekend, perhaps Nick you might like to deem to meet with me and explain why it is that you believe it is ok to deprive our families of our income, whilst you duck for cover in the security of your lawyers and administrators. I personally am owed in excess of $8000, have 4 children and a large mortgage... maybe you would like to write a short note to my bank manager to explain the situation to her so that we dont lose our home.

Good on you Nick - hope you have no trouble sleeping at night because I am only one of the many staff that you employed and I have no doubt that we are all in the same situation.

We stuck by you Nick when times were tough and I'm disappointed that you didnt have the decency to do the same. My only respite is that Karma is tough and her teeth are sharp... Good luck - I think you might need it!

Norfolk Pine , the problem is NL doesnt accept he has done anything wrong and will try to make others believe it too. Always the first to jump ship.

Thumbs down What a load of garbage!

Jeeze HC. Would those 'complaining people' and 'dead wood' be the ones that gave you their time, honesty, trust and hard work for nothing? You dont even have plans, grand or otherwise, of paying them what they are owed, do you? All those people believed in a great little business that you fleeced! Where is the mansion mate? Lets see .... Fiji, Tahiti?

And whether you think you have done wrong or not (and lets face it, you arent ever going to admit that you have, are you?), to shut down a business without paying the staff IS YOUR FAULT and YOUR RESPONSIBILITY , so how about doing the right thing .... for once?!

What goes around comes around, friend.

Gee Heavy Cargo, as at the time of this post, almost 11,000 people have viewed this thread.

Whats it like now, having the truth start to come out, and an ever shrinking clutch of patsies abandoning ship?

Karma, baby. Karma.

Engineer_aus; Alliance were supposed to be operating the Derby/Curtin service, however I believe National Jet did the run today.
Any news as to who's picking up the Christmas Island or Bali pax?

For those who are owed money by Ozjet there will be a meeting of creditors of the company at The Bowlers Club Level 2,95-99 York St Sydney NSW on Friday 29 May 2009 at 10:00am.

NL will be there and he will buy lunch for everbody NOT.

Great, the administrators meeting is in Sydney. Ozjet main office is MEL, and the crew bases are PER, BNE and NLK

So no job, no income, no money to spare for travel, and the meeting about my entitlements is being held in a place that is as good as half a world away.

There must be someone in Sydney you know. Organise a proxy via the administrators/liquidators.

Standard Procedure

The Ozjet situation is standard procedure for the owner NL, if you do a company search you will find a string of failures with similar pattern right back to the DC3 vh-edc South Pacific Airmotive.

All four Ozjet aircraft are listed for sale , refer AircraftDealer.com who have had this advert on their site for some time, VH-OZD-X-U and VH-OBN.

Perth airport have taken positive action, do trust they recover their costs either from the sale of aircraft, OZ-HN office premises or the substantial assets of the parent company directors.

Congratulations to the regulator who would have foreseen prior plans to merge the Ozjet and HN companies and mindful that to include the ageing HN fleet of VH and RP registered aircraft would undermine their standards.

The Philippine Civil aviation is currently investigating the Certificate of Registration of RP-8019 and RP-8020.

Time will reveal all.
