Most of the UK crew was canned before the airline was bought and the great idea to make all the expats redundant, working abroad. One British guy in particular told the then CEO not to take on all the crap and to keep focused on all helicopter operations and not to put too many eggs in one basket. He was also against selling off assets that brought revenue and as way to bring guys up to heavies. He was let go. There was an OPS manager from Aberdeen that thought the idea of turing Africa over to the locals was crazy. He was let go.
