One could ask the same question of FedEx,UPS, and DHL. Cargo only is much easier then pax 135. If you do it right and have loyal customers it is more profitable.

I worked there for a couple of years, and had very few complaints about how the operation was run. I was one of the outbased guys so I did not deal with HQ very often.

I was there from 95 to 97 just over two years.
Year one I was based in Albany Ga. I flew the 404 to ATL then the MU2 to CAE and back
Year two moved to CLT and flew the MU2 to RIC, EWR and back.

I liked the job.

As I have said before,the place,Bankair just does NOT rate a PT.135 certificate!!!!!!
I believe thier "insurance carrier" just could NOT afford to pay out anymore claims for "loss of life/property damage",hence the CARGO only restriction!!!!!!!!:rolleyes::rolleyes: :angryfire:angryfire:angryfire:D:laugh::D

Hey G-Farce dude,let me tell you something!!!!!!!!!!!!! Think of it THIS way,if you "worked for this outfit",you absolutely COULD NOT be fired for giving a "safety briefing"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "A cargo only" outfit might be just "what the doctor ordered" for "bottomfeeder type-individuals" like yourself!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes of course, they seem to be doing well too. In my opinion BankAir is a solid and reliable Part 135 operation based in the SouthEast.

They do a great job with their fleet of Learjets. Their recently refurbed Lear 35's are economical and the model is still a fantastic aircraft for charter ops for a number of reasons. They also operate a Lear 60.

They must have had a "complete overhaul" in the mgmt dept for you or anyone to be heaping "praise" on a company with its sad and nefarious history!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check out the "accident reports" going back to the 1960's!!!!! Walk over to the FSDO there at CAE and check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:(:(:( :confused::confused::confused: :rolleyes::rolleyes:
