This is very good news, not least because it makes it possible to do a business trip to say France or Germany and come back the same day.

Fairly obviously the whole thing hangs on a newly set up commercial operator at Shoreham, doing flights to (I believe) Paris. I do wish them success; every previous scheduled venture there failed.

Refreshing to read good airport news, I could get used to that.

Still late. I would like to leave much earlier. 6 would be good.

Lets hope the weather will come out at a sensible hour now.

Website looks great, and Pontoise only 16 miles NW of Paris.

Lets wish them every success. Notice the previous op was Skysouth, with a Chieftain.

19 seats may make the economies slightly better, still a very tough market, and looks about 150.00 return.

Fly safe. I want this thing to land l...
