Glide Omarama Ceases Operations

Glide Omarama has announced that it has ceased operations with the loss of 21 jobs as from Monday 9 March due to licensing interpretation differences with CAA.  See this article from the Omarama Gazette:  https://www.facebook.com/omaramagazette/?__tn__=kC-R&eid=ARBilkNalP4QyiCXTbO1g2XHMOEC5NoEtM1w1u0UVua1UJcHX_whfTELpnTuGo8OVfimCmLC16GBMO8l&hc_ref=ARTniPcNayaErD6q9QrN7APtTtz5c898-Tt-etFDGUALYEvhiu9YGa1uR9wbaT5Tjcg&fref=nf&__xts__[0]=68.ARAK1jdiynVo_uK_eO6Gk8P5GdLNogkVOd24Bnk1GQNd6Yh9vmkK6YzKJFXbnkF_XkMU1dmUIh4FMitrszy0LQo1HdmU5zHjsThEQXtcub0grxUsA5hr4RyRrHdpKeW79PRRRXgKJEyuLSoyEDspavIqQRnyNnCLi8o0fqMyk-7JijKdG6otTEBw_yvEXEXKBtA02n3e0Z3nxBBec3DFweSdSxQwyubuvC9NyziiUZYuW28oU2odgyuUXEBoAoXf8s1t629W2y_jW546gHfRtHHko2_54l10J8qpuFu9mDKE347OxYZNrUzeefzkRSe4i31F7CQKoa917Z-IoXqWRFCw2wnN

You might have to scroll down a bit to get to the article that is dated 9 March 2020.

This has caused a lot of discussion on social media but whatever the rights or wrongs it is a sad outcome for Omarama.  Hopefully something can be worked out going forward.

Here are a couple of their aircraft (both registered to Glider Rentals Ltd of Omarama) in happier times on a lovely day back in September 2019:

and Schempp-Hirth Duo Discus ZK-GQQ.
