What's with KD Air lately?

Post by jakeandelwood » Fri Aug 09, 2019 12:02 pm

Seems like there is a CADORS report about once a week for them from Pitt Meadows to Pitt Meadows doing low and overs with some kind of gear problem. Maybe they need a hydraulic mule and some jacks.

Or maybe stop bouncing the mechanics' paycheques?

Well that could very well be true judging from their difficulties lately.

I didn't even know they were still doing any flying. They haven't been seen at YVR since around January.

I was visiting CAT4 in December and was randomly asked if I wanted a job-told that they were having trouble finding pilots.

From everything I've heard by those that have worked for or dealt with them- stay away...

I think their van still has a parking boot on the wheel. If they can't afford to pay their vehicle parking then stay away. Someone must be working on their plane(s) out of pitt meadows, hope they get paid.

Rumour has it that there's some company out of the US (California, maybe?) who's pumping money into KD with all sorts of grand plans of buying a bunch of brand new Caravans, etc...

I believe the days of KD Air are waning.
