Associated has advertised its aircraft for sale. These airplanes can only be described as dangerous and requires that a buyer beware notice be posted. Anyone looking at these aircrafts must underline must examine the aircraft logbooks with a magnifying glass. The records that exist are fraudulent at the least. www.almacaviation.com/aircraftforsale/viewlist.asp search=Embraer&CatID=&Image16.x=37&Image16.y=3Here are the issues. Engines – the crew never kept records required by the Engineers for oil and other analysis. As a result, the true state of the Engines is unknown. Pratt and Whitney has the engines on a program but got no records from the airline to ensure the integrity of the Engines. At the present time, the program is cancelled for none payment. Maintenance As a former Engineerad former Staff, now employed by a better Airlines, I will be first to tell you that our supervisors insisted on the use of none manufacturer or OEM parts, we sourced parts from the local electronic stores. Very little records were kept, the entire LLP records are a fabrication all these were possible because the local Civil Aviation Authority looked the other way. Required x-rays were never performed. Matters that should have been looked into were overlooked. The aircraft is need to rigging. If you want confirmation talk to a former pilot of the Company that now works for Capital Airlines.My former MD and partner, Tunde Oremule has no regard for human life (his customers), he does not value his employees, or the law. When we insist on doing the right thing he harasses and intimidates his staff. If only passengers could see the maintenance records. The regulators have but the pay lip service to safety. Bottom line, Caveat Emptor.
