WAITING GAME: Airspeed Aviation director Ben Wyndham in Tamworth last month.

Airspeed Aviation director Ben Wyndham last week said that he would not be investing in aircraft for a service between Narrabri and Sydney unless the slots into Sydney were guaranteed.

Mr Wyndham said he had been lobbying politicans at the state and federal level over the issue and that time slots into the state’s capital should match local market demands.

”It’s like restricting a shop to opening between midnight and 4am – the times people don’t want the service,” he said.

“The fact is, to be ready you’re going to have to spend a couple of million on an airplane, and I’m not rushing in to create debt until I’ve got the work to pay it back with.

“The question remains as to what happens next.”
