News breaking that one of these Virgin Galactic craft (SpaceShipTwo) has crashed. I believe it's the same one as shown in your video MaxS. Now I call that a very spooky and unfortunate coincidence... Halloween or not.
Final point from me: the Licensing Act (l posted a link last week) is not clear about what the process is upon a deferral and so the press is probably guessing what will happen next, the hearing on FJs application could happen sooner than they are speculating. For instance the initial application process requires a public hearing within 21 days of applicationand any appeal must be heard within 30 days of such an appeal being made, but no such timescale (or process) for deferrals is specified. Point being FJ have options and nowhere says a hearing following deferral has to be public or in any given timeframe, though my guess it could be as early as 30 days (of the reasons for deferral being notified to the applicant) or as long as thebpress are speculating ie once a quarter.
sence2, I did not say anything about the BoD's not being aware of restrictions. I was only responding to the press article, which speculated the perception of fastjet being a foreign owned budget airline and that being the reason for the deferment of the license.
I'm sure fastjet applied believing that they had met all criteria, but it may be the KCAA believe differently, as was the case in our attempt to commence operations in SA.
To me, as l said when the news broke last Friday, this is the only issue that really makes sense. You are correct FJ have been very secretive over who the mystery 51% investor is, l wonder why they must be a 'contraversial' character?
The only thing that gives me comfort here, though, is that the application was only deferred and not rejected, so l hope that 'all' FJ have to do now is prove that the 51% investor is both genuine and Kenyan!
