With regard to Wings Air at Lawrenceville Gwinnet County airport,LZU.This another place to STAY FAR AWAY from as possible!!!They use the "Bushwood" call sign on the radio,fly PA-31Navajo Panther aircraft,which are loaded with SQUAWKS,since the MX Dept is woefully understaffed,mgmt is INCOMPETENT and UNPROFFESSIONAL as they can be!!
If a captain is told to get a hotel room near ATL,but instead drives to their home in Lawrenceville,they FIRE not just the captain,but also the FO,who had done nothing wrong!!If a captain has to fly a MISSED APPROACH at AHN because 200 & 1/2 minimums,you still cannot see the runway environment,they fire that captain!!!
All of the GPS data bases in Wings Air aircraft are atleast 6 mo. out of date and many are 12 mos. or more out of date!!! This means no GPS approaches or IFR use for enroute nav either!!!What ever happened to ADHERENCE to FAR's?? It is better to NOT get VIOLATED than to work for this outfit!!!!

This formerly was an ON-DEMAND PT. 135 operation trying to go PT.135 SCHEDULED OPS.
Their current routes are AHN-ATL,MCN-ATL.

If they are violating regs, why flightinfo.com and not the FAA?

Bushwood. That's such a pleasant call sign, I wonder how long it took to come up with that one.

If a captain has to fly a missed approach at AHN because of 200 1/2, you still cannot see the runway, they fire that captain

questions:
could you not see the runway?
were you that captain?
did you drive to Lawrenceville?
if the mins are 200 1/2 , you get in..it's that simple.
don't be looking up and cheating.flythe approach and at mins look up, if you see the rabbit, drop another 100, you're in.what's the problem?

BTW, there is no FO in a navajo. only a beatch!!

Talked with their Chief Pilot about a job when I was furloughed. SM are his initials. He said pay was 32k per year as captain and schedule was like 4 on then 2 or 3 off couldnt remember. No RONs. He seemed like a good guy on the phone anyways.
