Default Amazon.com Flight Department

Anyone have any idea if they have a corporate flight department? Nothing is listed under the FAA Registry for "Amazon".

I believe Mr B has his own plane (or planes) but it's been impossible for me to get any contact info for their FD. I've been trying awhile...

As do most "high wealth" individuals, like most of MS. Finding flight departments nowadays by posting is pretty unproductive work. Get a suit and tie on, visit an airport with lots of planes and knock on doors, network with friends in a position to help and pray. KBFI is a good place in the Pacific NW.

If your looking in the NW, KHIO is another great place. Departments and individuals seem to like basing aircraft out of Oregon because of tax reasons.

I would seriously doubt that you would find the aircraft held under the actual parent company name. In particular if it used for owner flying rather than company business which is the case here. So... "he" has an aircraft and it is on Boeing Field (KBFI) in Seattle. They are in the hanger right next to us up here. The pilots flying there have been with him since the beginning and turnover is highly unlikely in the near future but anything is possible in aviation right? I wont tell you exactly what they operate because its not my place but if I were starting a search for the plane I would start with Falcons - big ones. Maybe that will help you tighten your search. Good luck...
