Are these the guys that have "Iron Air" as their callsign? If so, I crossed paths with these guys all the time around POLAR in Detroit's airspace. Really sinks in when you probably crossed paths with this pilot at some point. Such a shame; RIP :(

No, 'Iron Air' is CSA. Martinaire is 'Martex'. The Michigan flights used to be 'Spend Air' before MA bought out Superior Aviation.
