I like PPRuNe except for the speculation over a company's state of health or fitness to operate, I think this is bad for the individuals who work at the company and is unprofessional (remember the first P in PPRuNe?)

So how about some "real" info?

Bond's Cork operation is in good health, customer likes the aircraft and it meets the requirement of the contract. What else is there for it to do?

One of the senior pilots is leaving to return to a previous employer, for a salary that Bond could not and would not be able to meet. There are no hard feelings, he needs to do his best for himself and his family, so his decision is easy. Bond are disappointed but these events happen and are not unusual over the life of any contract.

Transfer to the IAOC and away from BOH is imminent and is being carried out with the FULL co-operation of the Irish Authorities. They have been involved all along and are very happy with the way BAS (Ireland) have been meeting their requirements.

Do you get the feeling that I know what I am talking about?

As for salaries and any general unhappiness - would I accept more money for the job I do - Yes, do I look in my bank account and wish I had more - Yes, would I come in later and go home earlier if I could? - Yes. Does that make me unhappy - No, does any of that stop me doing a good job - No.

Hi 135,
I am delighted that you're happy, your customer is happy, and the IAA are happy. I dare say that getting paid double figure millions for a three year contract with a single 135 and convincing you guys that they cant pay any more BAS are also happy. Good news all round

GH leaving Bond Cork to return to CHC Ireland as Flight ops manager. This time last year he was leaving CHC SNS having just got a 139 rating to go to Bond as 135 driver. Everyone must have short memories or just short on talanted people.

Does anyone know when the Cork Bond 135 is due to take up an Irish registration serial (or has it changed already)? Can it remain on the UK register for the life of the contract or must it change to an Irish reg soon? Some of the previous posts suggested work was well under way for the transition. Thanks.

Congrats with your new Irish reg.

I do hope you guys don't carry any Dutch speaking passengers as they will wet themselves after reading the reg

EI-KEL translated in Dutch means DICK-HEAD

Ah! Thanks for that Dipper, we were struggling to think of a new callsign. We will try and wear it with pride.

It brings back memories of starting operations to the 'Horns Rev' windfarm in Denmark. After several weeks, I was informed that the way I was pronouncing it meant 'Horns Ars**ole' rather than 'Horns Reef'. I never did figure out quite how I was saying it wrong.

How many airframe hours have you clocked up in the year on your new 135 Tees? Just curious about how much the slightly smaller machine is working?
