Dumont Aviation, ousted CEO Wargo, trade lawsuits

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.

With a significant number of older private jets facing big upgrade costs to meet the compliance standards of ADS-B, or Automatic Dependence Surveillance-Broadcast, which go into effect in January, owners of those planes need to make decisions quickly.

For many, they will need to ground their jets as they look to buy new ones or perhaps hurry into a deal that doesn’t make sense.
