'Win an aircraft' removed; 'click here for latest offers' added.

Good plan!

... or is it?

I presume the two Pitts will be flown in as required - or is this a misleading advertisement with the flights actually being flown in the Slingsby or the Chippy?

you will love the fact that he sold three half shares in a Slingsby and the idiot that bought the original half share with him doesn't seem bothered that he now has a third share

Having had a license for over 28 years I am still staggered that is such a supposedly highly regulated area there are so many out right crooks. The CAA have perpetuated a system where low lives seem to thrive- off the back of very poor audit and enforcement.

Why is it that financial mal-practice seems to be acceptable?

More like a stampede of aircraft owners!

According to G-INFO, on the CAA website, is seems that RM only owns 8 of the aircraft, so I imagine the owners would be somewhat concerned to hear their aircraft are for sale?!?!

Maybe Robert should give Peter Whitehead a call he likes to invest in struggling aviation companies.

So what has/will have happened to all the group owned planes? will they have paid the fuel monies to Fly BPL and have to pay their bill again to the airport to be able to use their plane?

RM is one of life's survivors.

A blip like this, whilst inconvenient, won't deter him.

I'm sure, like the Phoenix from the ashes, he will rise again.
