It said they something along the lines of a 40,000 Euro profit last year. If that is true you would wonder why they bother wouldn't you? I mean if they sold everything and just put the money in the bank they would earn more then that. What is it about Aviation and people pouring in good money after bad?

The creditors would then be able to get what their owed from this money and both directors have guaranteed loans personally so they could loose their shirts.

Celtic have always posted modest profits, maybe I am too cynical but for soem reason I always assumed it was creative accounting?

Are both 109s now not flying? How many pilots do they now have with the 2 jumping ship.

One 109 just holding itself together. No pilots unless you count Haughey.

Past the big 60 so no Public Transport single pilot, thats for sure. Have been told that several pirvate machines maintained there have departed for other JAR-145 bases. I await correction if wrong. Are they running something for the WRC in November? This does slightly concern me as the Punchestown charges were quite high.....

No correction from here - also heard the same. Overpricing, staff and customers fleeing. Oh dear.

Overpricing is right.. taken from a posting on PPRUNE Oct 06 ref Ryder Cup.

What did you think of the costs. For a A109 ?300 to land, ?150 to park and ?100 surcharge if you wanted fuel and then charged a heafty ?1.10 per litre.

And the guys at Baldonnel did all the work. :twisted:

Why not check the prices to land at any of the events in the UK? As regards fuel, if its too expensive dont buy it. Would it work out cheaper to re-position?
