One allegation involves a lengthy delay in rendering a decision in a divorce and family-related matter, rendered in late November 2018, more than nine months after the judge took the case under deliberation.

"Flightpath commenced an application to sell Mr. Melnyk's aircraft with the intent to pay off creditors who have not been paid," said Flightpath's lawyer, Heather Devine, in an emailed statement to CBC.

The companies refused to provide a comment to CBC on the matter.

"For months, [Melnyk] flew the aircraft, incurred third party expenses, and demanded that [Flightpath] manage and operate the aircraft but failed to pay for insurance, NAV Canada, fuel, pilots, pilot training, maintenance, storage and repair expenditures without explanation, and without justification," said court documents filed by Flightpath.

Amounts 'inflated,' court docs claim

Melnyk's company disputes the amounts owing, calling them "incorrect and inflated" in a court filing.
