ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A company called Richmor Aviation sued another company called Sportsflight Air Inc. in 2009 over an unpaid bill of $1.1 million.
Richmor claimed that it provided exclusive use of a luxury Gulfstream IV jet to Sportsflight on the understanding that Sportsflight would pay for a minimum of 50 flight hours per month, whether the plane was used or not. Sportsflight refused to pay for hours it didn’t use.
Richmor’s website says it caters to clients “who demand the ultimate in safety, luxury and speed – worldwide.”
The passengers on the company’s plane were in the custody of the CIA. They had been kidnapped or captured and were ferried by Richmor to torture chambers around the world. In the euphemisms of the time, they were part of the CIA’s “extraordinary rendition” program and were to undergo “enhanced interrogation techniques” at “black sites.” Richmor and Sportsflight were subcontractors to the CIA.
