Could this be interpreted as telling those paying in that they're not investors or lenders, they are just members of the public buying rights to tickets. Joking apart, is that in effect selling tickets, and if so, is it actually legal for a would-be operator with (presumably) no licences?
Question for Consumer Affairs perhaps?

Here’s a link to the CASA fees page.

https://www.casa.gov.au/about-us/rep...dards-and-fees

The charges aren’t too bad for the expertise involved, and seem like a bargain when compared to what the lawyers and accountants would be invoicing.

A new start up airline also needs to employ its own “set up” team for the required post holder positions such as Chief Pilot and Head of Training etc. Preferably people with experience in starting an operation from scratch, and they don’t come cheap either.


With the amount of money he’s raised he might be able to get into a lawn mowing franchise if he took on a lot of finance.

So I see we have a new person ‘ involved’. With 22? With 22 years of Cathay behind you... why would think this was a good idea ?

Edit to say.. checking today ( 4 June) it seems that DL and others are no longer on the web page.

It seems brad has redone his timeline. The grand reckoning now comes in 208 days, 4 hours, 25 minutes, ...

The whole idea of launching another airline in this environment is confusing.

It's all over the shop, including spelling mistakes. Where he's got 'Tiers of Travel' that should be 'Tears' shouldn't it?

I'd love to know how he convinced 32 people to donate A$16,861.25. Sounds like a good business scheme!

Of course, with his own web site even those figures could be a figment of a fertile imagination.

His whole front page has changed. It’s now just about him, and how he is going to build an airline.

* Fundraising Clock resets to 35 days?

* "Post-holders" disappear off the bottom of the list?

* Now the $16,000 raised (of $2,900,000 'required') has mysteriously turned into $3,000?

Where is the other $13,000?

Appalling.

Sorry SOPS, I should have included a sarcastic emoji. I have no idea how much a website costs to run. I fixed the original post.

C'mon everyone, we're $2.89M short of the $2.9M goal with barely a day to go.

Dig deep!
