I'll take a look at the tail number of those A/C. I would assume that they are the one's currently flying out of STN. G-registered does not really mean much in the US under FAA part 121 regs. As long as it has a compliance check, it can stay on the Atlas Air AOC with G-registration or just about any registration that is under a bilateral agreement. I have flown many A/C registered somewhere else other than the US on a US AOC. Maybe it means something special in the UK. It does make it easier to move the A/C over to the Global Supply System that is being formed.

but nothing prevents GSS to designate AACS as supplier for it's cockpit crews. As long as they are corretly licensed and all the paperwork has been done correctly, that is no problem at all. GSS has to be majority helb by EU money, but that does not mean that AACS also has to comply to that rule.

There's nothing like a three-holer...

A US-controlled company, wholly owned by the supposed minority US owner of GSS, [exclusively] supplying crews to that supposedly UK-controlled carrier? Sounds like overstepping the bounds of "effective control," to me! Talk about legal hassles!

And you think the DETR would allow this??? What then would stop Atlas crews from bidding AACS and totally pushing out all the EU crews. What would stop Atlas from supplying GSS with Atlas mainline crews. Everything you guys say you want will go away under a company situation like that. All the EU jobs could go away. All the money would flow to Atlas in the US. It would really provide nothing for you. Hmmmm....maybe the DETR needs some letters from you guys opposing this GSS/AACS thing with Atlas.
