I started working life with Air Ecosse in 1979 in flight ops when they were based on the East Side of ABZ. After getting involved with scheduled ops ABZ-WIC and moving to the West Side fairly rapid expansion ensued with the inevitable consequences! After various failed attempts to get the company out of Administration, Peregrine eventually bought what was left, which by this time consisted of me, a couple of reservations staff and a few crew and changed the name to Aberdeen Airways. After a change of Managing Director, they decided to move Aberdeen Airways to EMA and a tie-up with Air Provance was planned. Aberdeen Airways eventually ceased trading! Some of the staff including myself, moved to Business Air in about 1990 ish, where I remained until they were taken over by British Midland.
There was no connection between Air Ecosse / Aberdeen Airways and Business Air other than a working one - They used to do the reservations for Business Air on the ABZ-DND-MAN route.
