PDG in Trouble?

Have heard a very, very small rumour that PDG may be in a spot of bother. Anyone heard anything??

Yes I heard the very same thing tonight, only an hour ago, that the road to their base is snowed in and they can't get through. Tough luck some people have at the minute, and it may be a day before a snow plough can get through. Hmmm.

I hope they are not in trouble, I worked for them 2001/2002, cracking bunch on the whole, the only reason I left was the low pay.

I wish them well - the Qinetiq folk on St Kilda in whose company I had the privilege of spending a few hours last year rate PDG (and one ex-PAS pilot in particular) highly.

Laying a few off in late March to aid belt tightening perhaps?

Best Wishes

Have heard that it could be worse than that, but let's hope not!
