PremiAir

The PremiAir base at Denham has been closed this week and the buildings reclaimed by the landlord. A notice on the door bans entrance - written by an asset valuation company.
Thoughts are with some great employees.

same old story isnt it...

When the parent company suffered a few months ago the offical line goes out "it will not affect us" and then a few months down the line the doors close!

I am quite sure...not 100% certain but quite sure that id Davis didnt have anything to do with the running then it would be in a much better position.

As far as I am concerned that bloke should be shot......tat

+1 to Captb747's comments.

Apparently it is only Denham affected. Fingers crossed for all concerned that the business continues from Blackbushe.

Yes Bravo 73, from the same hanger. All with the landlords permission.

Jet A1 is still available at Denham, under the airfield's control. Call the airfield office.

"only Denham affected" - maybe. But that's still a lot of shocked employees who were told to get out of the buildings with no notice.

JimBall - totally agree 100%, was not trying to suggest otherwise.

However I stand by my comment that I sincerely hope for all involved in the day-to-day operations, that the business is able to continue from Blackbushe (or elsewhere).

My thoughts are with all the guys at Denham . I hangared my squirrel there for a few years and the guys on the hangar floor were great . I still used to pop in for a coffee and ciggy and a gossip outside the back door . Very sad to see another company that should have flourished fail due to people in suits

Yes, in this case, as if often true, it's a huge shame for the shop floor workers.

As far as the ownership in a suit is concerned, what a terrible shame - couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke....could it?

Very sorry to hear this news. Best wishes to all the employees - hope you all find a slot in our "streamlined" industry.

From what has not been said, I assume the Premiar police pilots are still in work at their various bases? Fingers crossed.

Premiair seem to be going the same way Manns went 18 months ago. Is there another Gama in the wings to come to the rescue?
