Air National grounded temporarily


New Zealand’s Air National was forced to ground its fleet for five days after its flight operations and training manager abruptly resigned. The airline’s aircraft were only able to return to the skies once the Civil Aviation Authority approved a replacement manager, a process that took several days. Even once this had occurred, however, the airline’s BAe 146-200 ZK-ECO (msn E2130) remained grounded as the new manager was not yet qualified to manage it. Air National would not comment on why former flight operations and training manager Bonner Bylsma quit, but indicated that legal action was pending.
