Question Answered

A little article in the Kapiti News of 5 December 2018 answers the question I was asking about CAA grounding air2there... I will update the main air2there profile post.

Air2there, a small airline company based in Paraparaumu, has closed. The airline, which operated a regional daily schedule to Nelson and charter flights, started in 2004 from its base at Kapiti Coast Airport. Pricewaterhouse-Coopers managing partner John Fisk said he and Richard Nacey were appointed receivers to Air2there.com (2008) Limited, Air Wellington Limited and Kingair Limited on November 23, as well as an air-craft owned by director Richard Bald-win. Reasons for Air2there going into receivership were still being established. The company stopped operating on September 13 following suspension of the air operator certificate with CAA. "We have identified three aircraft together with various parts and equipment. We will be putting in place a tender process for the assets in the near future. "It is too early to provide details of creditor claims or the potential for recovery for creditors at this stage. We will be preparing our statutory report and expect to issue this before the end of this year."


  1. Not quite true as im told. Flying stopped due in part to maintenance controller departure, following from that was suspension of airworthiness cert on aircraft

    1. Correct. Ops Man suspended operations once MC left. This was a self suspension. Subsequent CAA check identified issues with maintenance that resulted in the removal the aircraft airworthiness certificates. Weeks and weeks later (sometime early November) the AOC was finally suspended. Its all academic as the writing was on the wall once MC left. However just to help you with your records.
