    Good afternoon to you,

    I was browsing your web page at the above website and noticed that our operational email address and company name are wrong.

    Email should read pikops@oceansky.com

    Our company name should read Ocean Sky Jet Centre

    I would be grateful if you could make the necessary amendments. Please could you confirm receipt of amendments to our operational email address.

    Thank you and have a nice day

    Colin Gordon
