Just shut the place down. Just wait it out a few months and you’ll get picked up by a reputable company. Do NOT sign a bond with Air Georgian. :prayer:

I’ve had the pleasure (misfortune?) of flying on Air Georgian only once. I have never seen an airplane with so many MEL placards in the cockpit in my life.

C-GORN, a Beech 1900D aircraft operated by Air Georgian, was conducting flight GGN7298 from Toronto/Lester B. Pearson Intl, ON (CYYZ) to Hartford/Springfield/Bradley Intl, CT (KBDL). When ATC cleared the flight for take off from Runway 06L at CYYZ, the flight crew lined up the aircraft with the left edge of the runway and commenced the take off. During the take off roll, the left main wheel entered the grass area on the north side of the runway and struck a runway edge marker.

The flight crew heard a noise and felt the aircraft pulling to the left. The take off was aborted at approximately 65 knots, the aircraft exited on to Taxiway D4 and stopped. The flight crew shut the left engine down, notified ATC of their situation and requested that the operator’s maintenance meet the aircraft to assess damage. The right engine continued to operate and all passengers remained on board. After a visual inspection, maintenance personnel advised that the aircraft could taxi back to the gate.

Further examination by maintenance personnel revealed minor damage to the propeller blades and minor indentations to the left side of the fuselage, aft of the entry door. There were no reported injuries. The FDR and CVR were recovered and downloaded by TSB Engineering. The takeoff roll began at 0147:41 UTC and the aircraft stopped at 0148:46 on the taxiway. When reviewed by the TSB, the 30 min CVR contained only data from 0224:28 to 0232:13. The portion of the recording which should have captured the time period between 0201:06 and 0224:28 was blank.

The pilots should be charged for tampering with evidence.
The description of what happened is pretty scary, WTF! I have no idea how that could even happen, completely inept crew

I'm no fan of GGN, but words like classic ggn or abysmal shape seems to me those forgotten AC had a tyre fall off in April 2017 http://nationalpost.com/news/air-canada ... in-england
Classic Air Canada? Abysmal shape those 330s are?
AC also doesn’t line up with runway edge lights for takeoff and then deletes the CVR.

there is a very clear poor safety and reporting culture. Whether you are looking from the inside or out it’s very obvious.

They have lined up with taxiways for
landing though... Too soon!?

But yeah, GGN is not exactly the
pinnacle of aviation safety culture.
