Sorry to hear you got ripped off too Hardy, was hoping no one else would get caught.

I have just submitted a complaint to ACCC so hopefully, that gets added to the list of complaints. Just need to get him stopped so no one else loses money.

Don't think so, haven't bothered to chase up further as wasn't willing to spend more money.

Is this a vendetta, a witch hunt, or concerned citizens looking for justice? If laws have been broken, shouldn’t it be a police matter.

If he has done no wrong he will have nothing to fear from a tax office investigation

Seems he’s still going hard at it, published yesterday. Reads like it was written by an eighth grader. Anyone for a holiday?

Simon I think it’s time to give Aviation the flick.

It looks like a bankrupt aviation industry player on the Gold Coast has encountered a fresh round of turbulence.

We learned on Tuesday that a wind-up bid has been launched in court against Skywings Aviation Pty Ltd, which trades as Blackstar Aviation.

The Southport-based business offers luxury private jet rentals to Hamilton, Hayman and Lizard islands, as well as charter getaways to horse racing and motorsport events around the country and across Asia.

Records show it was only launched last December by founder Simon Waters even though his LinkedIn page states, somewhat curiously, that he’s been the managing director of Blackstar since 2010.

In another odd twist, a 73-year-old gent living in the UK became his co-director in January.

But it gets even stranger.

We’re still unclear how Waters could serve as a director since he remains an undischarged bankrupt following legal action taken by a law firm two years ago.

His bankruptcy started just two weeks after Kirkhope Aviation in Victoria won court orders in January 2019 to have a liquidator appointed over Stratus Aviation Group Pty Ltd, where Waters was the sole director and owner.

Kirkhope, an air charter outfit operating since 1974, claimed it had spent months chasing an $80,000 debt and even alleged it had received bogus remittance statements from the company.

Just weeks before the Stratus crash, Waters told other media he was “in the process of restructuring’’ and poised to resolve a dispute with a services provider.

Liquidator Alice Ruhe later determined that Stratus went down owing 13 unsecured creditors nearly $300,000 and there was no chance of them recovering any of the money.

That’s not all.

In a report to creditors, she alleged that Waters had made nearly $195,000 in “unfair preference payments” to 10 parties before everything went pear-shaped at the company, which traded for less than a year.

Ruhe also revealed a raft of “uncommercial transactions’’ after she found that Waters had paid himself $67,000 in the nine months before the business went bust.

“I have identified significant payments in respect to the director’s personal expenses, including the payment of rent in respect to his residence, personal credit cards, motor vehicle repairs, food and drink purchases and cash withdrawals from the company’s bank accounts,’’ she wrote.

In case all this wasn’t enough, records indicate that Waters previously operated now-defunct entities Lightspeed Aviation and Jetblue Aviation.

Waters, a 34-year-old native of Adelaide who claims to be a “corporate Gulfstream pilot,’’ did not return a call seeking comment Tuesday.
