Cally Air belongs to Cross River State. No loan, no facilities were obtained and it is one hundred percent a property of the citizens of Cross River State.
I don’t own it, aero contractors does not own it. No one has a percentage share.
The recruitment was done by aero contractors, but we have a responsibility to ensure that the sensitivity and ethnic differences in Cross River is reflected.
Aero contractors knows that this aircraft is given to them for six months in the first instance strictly, because we do not have an A.O.C, which is the licence to run an airline business. We only have a licence for the aircraft.
It takes six months for the licence to come and if we have to wait for the licence, we will be losing money, so that is why we had to start early, using aero contractors with over 56 years of flying without any accident.
So on the basis of safety, we made a choice of aero contractors and against that background, we will continue with them until Cally Air has its full management team and a full A.O.C.
So after the A.O.C, we can now commence a full direct independent airline.
For those who imagine that aero has a hand in the procurement of this aircraft, it is absolutely false. No one, except Cross River citizens own this aircraft.
