Just announced from the CEO that CTS, Tradewinds one and only customer, has canceled the contract effective in the middle of May. The freight will be handled by FedEx.

No word if anything else will come about but I don't see a future for the company after much longer. Good luck to everyone.

Except the worthless CEO and CFO that is.

Could not have happened to a nicer couple:

Especially the CFO, he literally stole money from the crews. Hope he ends up sleeping under a bridge..:rolleyes:

Man, end of an era, CTS and Tradewinds go back a lonnng way.

Yeah, CTS kept the A-300s flying, but now that Fed-Ex have 700 excess pilots and are parking airplanes, it makes sense to do their own thingy.

Wonder what Boris is doing these days?

(Never got the Letter of Recommedation I was promised. Did anybody else get one from Boris?)

Not really that far. It was Blue Bell back in the 60's and Wrangler in the 80s.

Why did they give up the China flying just months after they started it again? Or did that contract get cut too? I never did hear what happened with it.
