  1. Here's the Lear 55 on the company website:

    The company is listed as a cargo based company but only has one real cargo designed aircraft with a wide loading door, a Falcon 20 (N760RA). They clearly are focused on human charter and not cargo charter. Anyone know what the advantage of this would be from a business perspective? This flight was referenced as a cargo flight.

    That said, there is no record on Flightaware of this flight landing at JVY on 2/19, with the only flight on that day recorded as ROC-FMY. And it is still flying. The hell happened here?

    1. They operate a freight and cargo division with dedicated aircraft for each. If it was a cargo flight it may have just been something small
