The June exit of Dumont Aviation Group co-founder and chief executive Kevin Wargo has resulted in an exchange of lawsuits and accusations which now includes Alliance Aviation
Dumont alleges Alliance, launched by a former Dumont executive, is using confidential information and its website is registered to Wargo’s sister
Last year during the National Business Aviation Association’s annual conference in Orlando, former Dumont Aviation Group CEO Kevin Wargo seemed to be guiding the Delaware-based charter operator to a prominent position in the industry.
The company was monthly taking delivery of one to two former NetJets’ Dassault Falcon 2000 large-cabin jets. After refurbishing the cabins and upgrading avionics, Dumont looked poised to be a key player in the heavy jet market with what would be a floating fleet of two dozen of the 10-seaters.

The company sells jet cards, fractional ownership, and on-demand charter, and has been in the news as it grows its fleet of the popular Dassault Falcon 2000.
