Would imagine that getting an aircraft on the AOC is made easier when it is at least in-country.

Realistically for a 30 minute round trip flight is the 109SP with 2 crew able to comfortably take a payload of 6 pax + up to 120kg of luggage ?

I've flown past the Scillies on a few jobs before but never actually stopped there - it was in Culdrose's patch rather than Chivenor's.

'er indoors has been pestering me to take here there for years.......

Apollo, it's not new and it's leased. I guess the old lessee and first customer in China didn't want it anymore so the leasing company needed a new home for it.

The 109 is very comfortable though, came back from the Scillies a few weeks ago in it.

The biggest problem with the service is the battle with the SW weather.

I wouldn't worry too much - S92 serviceability will take care of noise complaints ;-)
