Another failed business venture

Dear Editor,

Re: Uncertainty over future of Samoa Helicopters 

Wow! When this operation/service was introduced to our people earlier this year, it was criticised heavily by the people. Lo and behold, most of the criticism have come true.

What happened to the P.M and full support of this operation? Perhaps he finally listened to the people. Perhaps he didn't fully vet the cost of this operation?

It is not the changes of ownership that is causing this copter to be grounded. Anytime a business is sold and ownership changes, the operation continues to run so it's profitable. However, given the fact that the helicopter has been parking for few months, it means they are not permitted nor conforming with aviation laws.

Another failed business from the P.M. He may not own the business but he promoted it and called all naysayer idiots.

Hmmm… where is he now?
