Who owns Torres Strait Air

I saw on a locked thread the Chief Pilot of Torres Air denying any connection with Aerotropics and im sure as a company Aerotropics is well and truely wound up however on Facebook the Chief Pilot is spruiking the new AOC with planes registered to Flightec and photos taken in the Flightec hanger.
Isnt Flightec owned and managed by the same family as the old Aerotropics? Dosnt the Chief Pilot of Torres Air have a desk and office in Flighttec hanger?

Torresair.com is a $9.95 domain name registration through Crazy Domains. Mr Lippman is indeed the domain name contact.

Now, where have I heard the names Keating and Lippman before?

There was an earlier thread but it seems to have disappeared? Very odd??

How does this keep happening, surely the boys with long socks and short clipboards across the runway are aware of this, why can't they stop it. (I know the answer, just having a rant)
With his history and the CPs history with RFDS and his last employer who would believe this operation would get the rubber stamp.

So the owner of BLT business leasure and travel Martin Keating put the money up for Lipmann to start TSA as Lipmann doesn't have a cent to his name. BLT sells advertised flights to the public for westwing and TSA, the owning thing wrong here is TSA not like westing don't have a low capacity RPT aoc. VH-WZN also has had 3 engine failures in 3 yrs which is fkn scary.

I wonder if westwing realise there sales agent is potentially their competition. Was chat around HID few months back that you could buy a seat on TSA rather than charter the plane but the BLT connection seems a conflict.

So Lipmann does make money just doesn't put any back into his aircraft or pilot pays and conditions.

His brother has basically sold his house to keep the aircraft upkeep going, sad deal

Anybody remember Maxine Reid? Apparent lack of business acumen, CAsA would have us believe. I hope she's still angry.
