I am led to believe they are working in partnership with an existing RPT operator. It's a bit like the arrangement that BigSky had with Transair, and that Westwing and Sharpies had with Roman whatsisname EN-MER.

"they proactivity support this" and "economical support" - 🤔
Other mistakes there too. Good grammar and punctuation are a sign of professionalism..
Too busy to get things written properly in the rush to get started?

The guy from 'Status Aviation' talking about cheap fares, perfect OTP with easily accessible replacement planes, in 20-30 seater planes, kinda reminded me of someone......

What's another quarter mill? Standing by now to see CEO (chief excuse officer) defend and blame the council for this accrued debt on Facebook, where all good CEO's communicate.

Perhaps this thread needs to be merged with the JetGo one above where there are a couple of recent posts about this gentleman.

Flight West Airlines established a company and obtained an AOC in May 1987 in seventeen (17) days!

That was just so ridiculous it was funny. Looks like he has deleted it, so I will repost the text here for all to see.

Jason Ryder (JetGo CEO)
Bullcrap. Jetgo tried their hardest to negotiate with the council right up until the days before the administration. Michael McMahon and Ben Shields refused to even accept payments in advance for passengers that were scheduled to be transported and in addition an offer to pay the debt down in 12 months was also rejected with zero counter offers considered. their response to our offers were a flat "No" This can be confirmed by asking the Sydney based Lawyers they instructed (Yes Sydney based lawyers not even local lawyers) The disappointing result to this is that over 100 people that love Jetgo and rely on it for their families are out of a job tonight. This was also brought to the attention of the council to the mayor. The part that is the hardest to understand is that all the other airports were happy to work with us with payment arrangements except Dubbo. The rate payers needs to ask why to this day even Rex have a beef with Dubbo council to the extent that they have had a post on their website homepage for years now. Thanks Ben and Michael I hope you are happy with the result. We offered to pay, you refused to accept it
And before anyone asks, the spelling and punctuation is not me. Thats actually what the JetGo CEO posted on the Dubbo Council facebook page. Laughable really.

Clive Palmer looks to be at it again, maybe JETGO will make a comeback in partnership with him. Their aircraft are sharing the same parking location at YBBN. Could two wrongs make a right?

Just to put this in perspective, for all those praising the JGO owners for "having a go" YOU are paying for their "GO". The first thing Jason said to his employees is "don't worry your covered by FEG" which means you as taxpayers are paying to "have a go". Dubbo council taxpayer money, you are paying to "have a go". Albury, Wagga, Illawarra, Karratha, YOU taxpayers I hope you enjoyed "Having a go". The ATO is owed a large sum of your and your kids money. I hope you enjoyed having a go!!

I find generally that if a never heard of company thats using generically googled photos and purports them to be “their aircraft” says one thing on their Facebook and the Mayor of a council says something different about the same topic its probably not going to work.

RUMOUR: A message was sent to a staff members phone today from the CEO detailing his plans to fly out to China tonight. This was also confirmed by the CP. Some staff contacted AFP. Administrators called a staff meeting tomorrow and from what I've heard they've entered liquidation.
