Directors

Phil, while I agree on the one hand I'm sure the legal bodies that govern my industry would not allow that as a reason, the directors are there for a reason legally and otherwise.

If the other director(s) have knowledge of what is going on then they are responsible, if not more so, the onus is on them in any court of law to provide the information to dispute or acknowledge the facts.

Best thing for everyone in the flying community is not to have anything to do with this guy full stop and the current climate of feeling towards him should perhaps show people including his father that the guy has no idea how to treat people, run a business legally or otherwise

As I have said before in post CPL/IR euphoria people get taken in and is unfair on them to get into more trouble financially just because there aspirations have outweighed there bank balance while trying to get there career of the ground. We are after all not talking just about a dodgy character who be-littles, threatens and lets be honest tries to intimidate (ha ha ha ha) we are talking about other peoples lives, money, families and from the sounds of it houses. The shoe should be on the other foot for once

Anyway gripe over, happy flying all

Ah the "Find me if you can" approach. Excellent start to a new enterprise!

I wonder what impression he is trying to create by being so smug about moving his office where nobody can find it, and by constantly changing and registering new companies. In today's highly competitive market the consumer isn't a blind man on a galloping horse, nor is the employee for that matter, as it turns out.

What's the Swansea latest? Is there still a BE58 on the ground?

Which makes a mockery of his claim to have gone to a Welsh speaking boarding school in Brecon. Considering he would have been in the same year there as my brother.

A story up there with the 6000 Triple 7 and the Lambo. Sorry for the thread creep, but I'm sure the rest of you have some pearlers as well!

G-WWIZ

I have noticed that MD has the baron up for sale, went up 4 days ago on an aircraft sales website.
It's listed as having a fresh annual and prop o/h's done. Don't suppose he's re-registering the aircraft on another register to avoid a lein? They're (or at least used to be) registration dependant.

As I said before go for the other director, the address is readily available and may shake someone into doing something, don't require MD's address, although thats easily obtained to, internet is a wonderful thing

This is getting boring now. There are plenty people who wake up in the middle of the night with a big hard-on for aviation. What is really needed is cash, not a hard-on. The sooner Unique's owners understand this, the sooner we are all spared these 'sorry stories'. If they have less than 1 million quid in the bank, I suggest they go and buy a burger van or a condom vending business. After all, we all need to eat and ****.

For all those pilots waiting on Unique Air, stop 'hangin' on a string'. Get on with your lifes. There are plenty jobs out there.

MODS, it's high time to close this thread. This ''Unique" story is beginning to sound an awful lot like 'Alpha-One'.

Charterguy, I know that all the previous "employees" are doing just that, getting on with their lives, nobody just sits around and waits for life to happen, we all have to pay the rent! This thread happened to start after all had given up on Unique Air anyway, at first we waited for the investment, then we hoped, then we did everything we could to help from working in the office to working nights on call, and footing our own accommodation bills out of, well, no pay whatsoever. I think the thread was initially started by someone who was thinking of applying for a job. Then there was a deluge from those who have been there and suffered what it does, temporarily, to your life.

I think the reason everyone added to this thread was mainly to warn others about this company. Perhaps you are right, and it has now achieved that. However I think there are still people who look at and subscribe to this site, not all of whom worked at Unique Air, and who are still interested in what MD and his brethren are up to.

He still seems to think he'll get an AOC and become an operator, yet he's been chucked out of his office, had his aircraft blocked in, and now needs to sell it. Despite this the danger is that he'll still think he needs crew, and he knows how to exploit people in this respect. I guess this thread says, above all else: "Warning".

One of the other reasons it keeps going is that MD himself keeps sending private messages to his previous staff, some of which could be construed as threatening. He doesn't seem able to accept that what he did was wrong, and seems to think we have somehow stabbed him in the back, although I fail to see his logic there, similarly I fail to see my wages anywhere! Actually I think that he and his so called partner are quite happy that they shafted us, I think they derived satisfaction from it, and I am quite sure he is able to laugh about how we were stitched up. Most of us have shrugged our shoulders, and, as you suggest, moved on. Nobody believes his lies any more, many of which have been shared here.

Inevitably, however, as there are fewer and fewer things to say about Unique Air, and as most have now had their say, this thread will slip from view in the normal way.

It pleases me that so many have kindly contributed words of support, and that a fiasco such as Unique Air still generates such interest, astonishment and condemnation.

Finally, I suppose if it really bothers you, there is no real need for you to read it, just don't click the link and move on to another topic.

Dear Mr Hammer

I would like to say that you have hit the nail squarley on the head with everything you have said. I will " as one of the threatened" continue to monitor the movements of these individuals and keep you informed as any interesting developments. As for you MD, don't think for one moment that I have forgotten about you!
