Company with an apparent miserly £500,000 in share capital and a single ancient (1988) plane (SAAB 340 A model code HS-HPY).

By aviation standards that really isn't to old. As long as an aircraft has been maintained and inspected (Annuals & 100Hr Intervals) by certified mechanics these aircraft might get a 30-40 year service life.

My concern is the maintenance and certified mechanics, are they existant in Thailand? Not concerned by the age of the aircraft......

This doesn't bode well at all.

I think, personally, I would have to have a very urgent need to go to Buriram, If I were to use that small company.
