No great surprise really, you do get the feeling that any venture involving RM is destined for failure. Will he appear again, undoubtedly. At what cost to whom next time?

If you're renting and the hull is also insured in addition to the public ans third party risks it does not been you're safe from the courts in the case of hull damage.

The word to Google is "subrogation" and you need the hull policy to include a subrogation waiver in yor favour - most do not hence the renter policies that Avemo, AOPA egc push so hard - and most of those cover the excess and legal fees for the basic price, for full-protection thepremium is not far off the cost of a separate policy.

Also look to your household insurance cover - it may cover rented sports/recreation equipment - could be nteresting roping in an airplane under that class.

Anyone know how the GBP35K cases have progressed?

I see you're posting from Barbados - is the law the same in Europe?

I've heard of trainee pilots in the states who had to pay for damage, even though they were flying with an instructor. I've never heard of any similar cases from the UK, which obviously is not proof that none exist or could not exist.

All the agreements I've ever signed state the excess for which the pilot may be held responsible. Could I still be held liable for any claim greater than this sum? I've never rented from flyBPL.

as far as I know they are all still pending his method is to send the demand and hope they pay up He doesn't have the funds to pursue it

these are the FACTS : G-BBBK circa 5-6 yrs ago fatal accident at EGNH (2 dead)
G-BBEF last year Switzerland (2 dead) this year G-ATRR Caernarfon (1 dead ! critical, amputee) all received an invoice for the Hull
and the common denominator all three were Fly/Bpl aircraft

another Fly/Bpl aircraft G-BULH still impounded (in France) caught in a drug bust a couple of years ago

Boy entrant,

Picky I know but best be careful with 'FACTS', BBEF went down year before last, it's certainly a bad showing from one operator though.

Im assuming he is being sarcastic. Either way even though he might not personally be responsible that amount of accidents would suggest something needs investigating. Either the aircraft or the culture of the business.

the AAIB have investigated all the accidents and found no fault with any of the 3 aircraft That leaves "The Culture" which in turn means the C.F.I.

New incarnation already?

Flight academy / aircraft grouping manager and colleague of RM seems to have reopened flight academy...

Surely this is no coincidence?

Most of these postings are from a small number of fairly new PPRuNe members, (or at least new Nom de Plumes), some of whom I believe are potential competitors.
Ulterior motives?

Well - hello RM

It’s quite a while since you’ve posted under your Flight International nom de plume!

I find it quite hilarious that you are passing a comment about someone else being ‘out sooner than they think’!

Still no movement seen last weekend but there was a rather nice pair of euro fighters parked up weekend before.

If you have a grievance with Fly Bpl you know what to do. Dirty washing and public are two words that spring to mind. Back stabbers is another phrase which seems to be semi hidden in the recent non- constructive comments aired by some. Whatever happens RM will come out of this and I for one will support him as will others who have been helped by him in the past. Look at the books and figures of those who wish to see the demise of FlyBpl it does not make good reading. Ok FlyBpl need to settle a few things with the management, who only want one thing from FlyBpl and yes you guessed it, it ain't money but a certain property. So all of you rumour merchants that have no idea about what is going on at Egnh would do well o get your facts in order prior to posting harmful garbage. And no I do not hide behind a false name.
