Last Friday The Enterprise Report first reported that seven associates of accused Russian arms dealer Victor Bout hold U.S. issued Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot licenses.
In our exclusive story, we provided the specific U.S. FAA document details for one of Victor Bout's key associates Valeriy Naydo. Naydo, is an experienced ATP rated FAA licensed pilot who has somehow been able to maintain his American pilot's license five years after being placed on the U.S. "O.F.A.C." financial sanctions list.
Today The Enterprise Report is publishing the remaining six (6) names of U.S. licensed pilots that have a relationship with Viktor Bout and his air cargo transportation businesses. Bout has been accused by the United States and the U.N. of supplying arms to countries around the world. In 2008 the U.S. indicted Bout for attempting to supply South American terrorists with among other weapons, surface-to-air missiles.
The current FAA pilot licenses of the six individuals as maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration provided to TER by Safe Banking Systems, LLC (SBS), a small cyber-data investigative firm in Long Island New York, are below:
