The American Ebola Rescue Plan Hinges on One Company. Meet Phoenix.
[link to www.thedailybeast.com]

They’ve transported dolphins, satellite parts, even wolves. Then came a call to pick up two stricken American health workers. How Phoenix became the U.S. government’s go-to rescuer.
Phoenix Air Group, a U.S.-based air charter, can fly anything.

Designed for “special missions,” the privately owned company is capable of transporting precious cargo anywhere in the world. In the 30 years since the company’s inception, “cargo” has had many meanings. For air supplier Hughes Aircraft, it was crucial satellite pieces from Russia. For Australia, oil field explosives. For an American aquarium, penguins.

This July, Phoenix got a call from a new client, this one the most serious of all. It was the U.S. Department of State. The precious cargo: two American humanitarian workers with Ebola.

For the immediate future, the thousands of American troops, hundreds of nurses and doctors bravely fighting Ebola in West Africa, Phoenix is the only quick way home. Despite more than $175 million allotted to the relief effort, the U.S. government’s rescue plan hinges on one company. Meet the most important air courier you’ve never heard of.

Re: The American Ebola Rescue Plan Hinges on One Company. Meet Phoenix.
When Randall "Randy" Davis was asked to fly to Liberia in August to pick up Nancy Writebol, one of the first two Americans who had contracted the Ebola virus, it was business as usual.
Davis, Phoenix Air Group's vice president and general counsel, splits his time between the air as a trained jet aircraft pilot and the ground as the company's lawyer.

"I fly missions if we are short-handed or if it's a mission to a place I haven't been before and I want to go," says Davis. "This one sort of fit into the two."
Phoenix Air is an international aircraft company in Cartersville that provides specialized services to the government and various industries. Services can include everything from transporting live animals—even penguins—across the globe to moving explosives and providing training services to the U.S. military.
For several years, Phoenix Air had a contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and it was during that time Phoenix Air, along with the CDC and U.S. Defense Department, developed the Airborne Biological Containment System (ABCS), an isolation chamber that can fit into one of Phoenix Air's Gulfstream aircraft, so highly contagious patients can be transported without endangering the crew.

When the CDC's contract ended in 2010, the agency continued to pay Phoenix Air to store the isolation chamber in case it was needed in the future. Davis flew on the plane that brought missionary Nancy Writebol to Atlanta to be treated at Emory University Hospital. "It was something I was interested in and was happy to do," says Davis about the trip. "Especially these missionaries. I mean they are such incredible, selfless people to be doing what they are doing."

Meet Mark Thompson Two-time ARCA (race car) winner President/Owner of Phoenix Air Group ...hmm"And if that wasn't enough, Thompson has entered into a cooperative 20-year agreement with the US Department of Interior to maintain and operate Midway Island"

"Randall H. Davis is vice president and general counsel of Phoenix Air Group Inc...Not on his résumé but still important to Phoenix Air is his fluency in Russian...As a first-year student at Emory University School of Law, he flew for a company owned by Mark Thompson, who went on to start Phoenix Air. That first job involved transporting canceled checks from the Federal Reserve back to banks in various cities.

N173PA is free on plane fax because of it's "historic" aspects... N197PA would have to be paid for but I may be able to dig the crap up ....interestingly there are 2 with N197PA tail #'s ...one has propellers...from what I have been able to "translate" the N signifies "citizen" plane and the "PA" is most likely "Phoenix Air"....found out something more on "ebola ambulances" Castle International is providing "Rapid response team" air ambulance ....working on tail numbers but this is a hard one
