Exeter-based airline Flybe is at risk of collapse, according to reports.
The airline is reportedly in talks over potential emergency financing after suffering rising losses, Sky News reported.
It reported that Flybe has been holding talks with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Department for Transport (DfT) on whether the government could provide or facilitate any emergency financing to the company.
Some 2,000 jobs are said to be at risk at the carrier, which is Europe's largest regional airline, a main operator at both Exeter and Newquay airports, and major provider of flights for the Channel Islands.
Last February, the airline was bought by a consortium led by Virgin Atlantic, Connect Airways, following poor financial results.
Flybe said it was continuing "to focus on providing great service and connectivity for our customers, to ensure that they can continue to travel as planned".
It added: "We don't comment on rumour or speculation."
A plane crashed into a hedge during takeoff at Branscombe Airfield, Devon, because the pilot did not have "steady" control in a strong crosswind, a report has concluded.
A flight between Branscombe Airfield and RAF Henlow ended up in the privet because the plane had become "weathercocked" in a 9 knot, 180 degree crosswind, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said.
There were no injuries to the pilot and the Piper PA-28-181 Cherokee Archer II aircraft was "substantially damaged" by the impact.
The report said the strongest crosswind aircraft of the same model had safely taken off in was 17 knots.
Proper technique and practice are vital to achieve a safe cross wind takeoff, especially when the wind speed is close to the demonstrated maximum."
The report described the crash as happening after the nose of the aircraft lifted during takeoff at low speed, became briefly airbourne and was turned by the wind towards the airfields boundary hedge.
This happened because the "pilot’s directional control of the aircraft was not steady", the AAIB said.
The nose of the plane continued the rise, while at the same time sinking into its wheels until the tail crashed into the ground.
After becoming airbourne in a "nose-high, low speed" position, the pilot attempted to turn back to the runway but ended up "mushed" into the hedge.
