to put the speculation to bed. N600NP and N601NP both Challenger 601-1A/3As and N700NP Hawker HS 125-700A are all mine. There are all registered to separate LLC for liability reasons, no need to front anything.
As for the Airplane Repo show, the network wanted to 'dumb it down" to the level of what they thought the viewership was. The decided to stage and fake the repos, something that we did not do in the first season. They wanted to create the drama- with bullshit like breaking into hangars, fighting with the owners and buzzing the owner once they had the aircraft. If it was a real repo the aircraft would get the aircraft back and no doubt the bank would end up waiving the loan balance to avoid a huge lawsuit and punitive damages. In self help repo you can not breach the peace, clearly that doesn’t matter to the network.
this is why we refused to do a second season. With the exception of Kevin Lacey who worked with us for years I don’t know how much expertise the other actors have. hope this helps, Nick Popovich
