Anyone had any experience with JetMax post the FDS sale?
« on: December 04, 2018, 08:37:26 AM »
Hi there,

Flightdeck Solutions sold off their JetMax product lines and business to Azure Air Ltd at the end of 2017.

Prior to that, almost all of the references to JetMax I can find online are generally very positive, not least because of the excellent rep that FDS have built up for customer service and support.

But I've been unable to find anything online referring to the JetMax product as built, delivered, and supported by its new owners. The JetMax website doesn't seem to have been meaningfully updated at all in the year since the sale, and the azureairltd.com domain that the main contact address is hosted at doesn't appear to have a website at all. Google has not heard of Azure Air Ltd outside of the JetMax.ca website. All of which are red flags for someone thinking of purchasing a JetMax product in 2018.

So, has anyone had any dealings with the new post-FDS JetMax product and/or Azure Air Ltd? Am I right to be reticent considering purchasing JetMax today?


Thanks in advance,
Nick

Not sure Azur is selling the JetMax yet.

I’d send an email to Peter Cos at FDS too find out more, if were me. Either he would provide answers or put you in contact with the people at Azure...

I believe that in their sale announcement they stated that it would be a while before anything would be available again.

The next news item on the JetMax site after the sale announcement is one saying that "Azure Air will start JetMax production from 1st Febuary 2018".

I'm just trying to ascertain if anyone has actually bought anything from them in the ten months since then.
