Anybody know if he is still using Magellan Jets for his charter/private flights? Also, what is Magellan Jets code? Looking for info as he is coming to Pittsburgh next week for an “invite” only speech.

Looking at encode list, it doesn’t appear they have a 3 letter code. Is Magellan the official name or is a doing business as name? If the latter then there may be a three letter code under the DBA name
