My guess would be LabCorp. They leased some of BankAir's for a bit, weren't satisfied with the quality (reportedly), and now they're leasing/buying 5 or 6 from Air 1st.

PS. If you find out differently, please PM me!

Will do! I was told its going to be a company flying blood and lab stuff, so I was think lab corp. Also the planes are being fitted with glass panels.

Hmmm, now that is interesting. They would use them to replace the Chieftains that they currently have (and also 1 Pilatus). When I was there, they only had about 6 or so Navahos so 21 seems like a big number, unless they are going to have a major expansion, which I would doubt.

Maybe they are going to use some as part-ships. 21 does seem like a big number since that is more than are even available on the market. Getting some from another operator.

I think it's Quest. Since Eclipes fell apart they've been looking for something else. They leased a Lear and an MU2 from Bankair to try things out and I think that they like the MU2's.

It is Quest.

I heard two or their pilots were taxiing very fast at IAD and turned so fast that they rolled the tire of the wheel on the nose gear last week.
