Quality!

Perhaps the next intention is a holding company for a new record label to launch Welsh rap wannabes who can't get a contract elsewhere due to their low clubland experience. Doubtless there'll be VIP transport, free hotel accommodation, promises of stardom, interviews with Tom Jones and Charlotte Church adding their commentry. Inevitably it'll end in tears with new punk combo Swansea Sex Pistols providing cover versions of EMI (nem) and I Did it My Way.

Mike, time for you to return to planet Earth now.... though to be fair, all the time I spent at Swansea, I never felt it really was on the same planet.

Nice scenery, some great pubs and grub certainly, but there's definitely some kind of aviation jinx at work there!

Anybody get paid yet?

MD sent me a text some weeks ago saying that the money to pay up came to him that day, but he'd take it to court before paying me. I'm in the process of instigating those proceedings, but this won't be of any surprise to him.

Any news on the Baron - is it still on the ground at Swansea?

I wonder if he did have the money to pay out, as he claimed?

Actually that's rubbish, I don't wonder at all!

Pay

MH

Maybe we should go to small claims court, I can afford it, maybe we should see if those deep pockets and short arms of the hooters man can stretch to that anyway, I mean its about 50 a letter only these days from his solicitor, could tie him up for a while when he should be concentrating on Bull airways.

If anybody requires the registered company address for legal action against Unique Air then private message me.

It's joint owned by MD and his Dad over in Bridgend.

I'd possibly address it to his Dad just so he is aware of what his son is up to!!!!!!

Cheers.

Hey all look what i got

I answered with a suitable reply, I will post on here if he does, how unscrupulous, I have heard it all now, like i said earlier in posts 18th august 2006, happy to prove the flight if required
So just to summarise all, I was not employed, but offered pay for that day, hmm ok then a back-hander (which was never paid) then that would be a tax dodge im guessing. Also offered as previousy stated to do some dodgy low level flying over a temp restricted area.
Hope this clears matters guys, and MD, im not jumping band wagon, merely stating the facts you are an , the band wagon is rolling to protect the hard working people of flying
Lets go for the small claims guys
WITHOUT PREJUDICE
Paul,
I believe that you didn't at any time work for Unique Air (uk)ltd, however you did use the company as an excuse for you infidelity with other airline cabin crew members, it appears on the rumour network that you insinuate that you were an employee which is incorrect, it is agreed you had an offer of employment which you did not proceed with. may we sagest that any future posts are clearly stated that you are not and have not been an employee, you just want to jump on the band wagon.

When I met his parents it seemed that they had invested a large sum of their own money in the company, I suspect it was to do with the purchase of the N reg Seneca. I wonder if they'll ever get it back.

They seemed very surprised some time ago when I told them that we had not been paid. I'd be interested to know what they have now been told.

They must be worried.

Davies really is unbelievable, although I am not at all surprised that you received that letter. As we are clearly into the territory of letters this is what you get when you are working for them full time, like I was supposed to be:

Gentlemen,

For the avoidance of any doubt, the airline MD is Mark Davies

THe decision to allow a charter of the aircraft when and where is HIS and HIS alone.

As a Pilot, you have clear duties and the main reason that you can choose NOT to fly is on safety grounds. NO OTHER.

As a company, we will not allow any employee to dictate terms of flying nor attempting to challenge the authority of the Management.

If this is not clear, or if you wish to join a company run by committee, then your resignation wil be accepted with immediate effect.


Mark Sedgley

Mark Sedgely was the chap who claimed at the time to represent the investor. Davies subsequently sent me a threatening text message (which of course I kept for posterity) telling me I was playing with the big boys and they would destroy me. Apparently Sedgely and Co must be big boys.

I should add that we were sent this letter after we questioned the legality of the flight, the currency of the charts (they were far from current, but Davies wanted us to fly on them anyway) and other things like insurance of the aircraft etc.

MH

Maybe we should just go to the CAA, this is obviously very poor show, think what happens if someone does have an accident, the PIC has the responsibility to fly with current maps etc and to check legality of insurance, hmm remember hale and pace "by order of the Management"

ps. thanks for that name very useful

I'd be very surprised indeed if the CAA are not looking very closely at the organisation already, but I would think your evidence would be extremely interesting to their Enforcement Section. Get in touch if you want the details of the chap I spoke to at the CAA when I was worried about the operation.

If it's names you want, other names Davies dropped were Frank Harding and even Alan Sugar. I didn't believe the last one, and I have never heard of the first, not, at least until he mentioned it.

hmm

So anyway, think that a get together should still be arranged ex employees,people who have been stiffed over and the ones who never were and stiffed over seems a few drinks are in order

All I would ever say is that if he has investors and they are serious I would dis associate myself from this man and the company name.

MH I will have that name no probs PM me with it

Hello144
Nice post, very eloquent, Mark, almost down to the standard of your text messages.

Nobody believes a word you say any more mate. Not even you believe it really do you? I mean really?

Ps the Airscript link was from 2006, when you and others thought you were on to something. By the way last you spoke of the AOC it was 50k. Is it think of a number time again?!!

What happened to "Im here", haven't had any posts from him for a while, or has he done a Reggie Perrin off Swansea marina?

Or are we expected to believe Hello144 is not him, right down to the spelling?
