Looks like it's been doing circuits around Toowoomba.

The aircraft is costing money; not doing much flying..

So whom is paying the bills and where is the revenue coming from?

The Kiribati citizens cannot afford proper balanced meals, medical facilities, schools, communications, education, .....

Who is scamming who?

Regarding where the money is coming from. But as stated above it was blatently obvious.

Any updates on Air Kiribati's E190-E2? Seems to be flying recently between Brissy and Toowoomba according to FR24. Flight crews maintaining currency perhaps?

They appear to have done a few flights to Tarawa, despite restrictions. Must have have some sort of an approval (and ETOPS), or are these the CASA proving flights?

ETOPS - Are you sure about that?

Proving flights require passengers on board to simulate a normal operation.

I have no idea, and hence posed it as a question.

They don't have ETOPS. You can fly BNE-TRW-BNE on 60 minutes, there are two routes, northern and southern, YBBN, YBCS, AYPY, AGGH, ANYN, NGTA, or YBBN, NWWW, NVVV, AGGH, ANYN, NGTA.
