Alan sold out to someone else a while back and most of the inventory was being transferred to the new guy as of my last conversation with Patricia over a year ago.

Yes, Todd at DW does sell the line now, but I have no idea whether there are others.

Alan is no stranger to RCU, so perhaps he will weigh in with an update....

Don.

Chris - how did we get from Patricia not receiving an email to this in a few short steps ?

Boomerang Jets USA (North and South America) is a separate entity to Boomerang Jets UK covering Europe and the rest of the world.

Alan and Patricia own Boomerang Jets USA - that did not and has not changed. Boomerang Jets UK is owned by myself and that has not changed.

Hope that clears it up ?

Thanks Alan,

This clears it up. BTW, it wasn't me who stated that! This is why I was surprised to read it.

Certainly not worth an eye-roll on your part there Mr Gontier, as it's certainly not the customers' fault that the new arrangements are so unclear amongst the very people you rely upon for support.

Mr highhorse I apologise if I caused you any offence - I was merely attempting to clear up what seemed to be rapidly developing into a bit of a Chinese whispers scenario on the thread. I did try to make the scenario clear on here a couple of years ago when the changes happened but at least this thread is now another point of reference for anyone who is interested.

Patricia is always there to support all you guys there in North and South America and I am here along with my network of dealers for anywhere else. We are in regular contact with each other anyway so wherever your enquiry comes to it will be dealt with by the right person and acted upon.

It looks like the original post was simply a case of an email not getting through to Patricia.

best regards

Colin

What Colin says is exactly true. He has bought the European rights to Boomerang Jets.
All and any Boomerang Jets USA business is still going strong in North America, Canada and South America, and is handled by Patricia in Dallas. Our kits can be supplied to Australia from either UK or USA. We have also aligned with Todd at Dreamworks to handle our kits in the USA, and are now inviting trade enquiries from dealers on the West Coast side of the USA.
I am still involved backing Patricia up as always, and also having input into new Boomerang designs.

I have found for best results pick up the phone but Patricia is also very responsive to email as well. Can't imagine a better person to talk to on the phone!
