Larry Visoski, who testified he flew Epstein to his private island in the Caribbean “at least every 10 days for 20 years
,” told the court on Tuesday during the second day of Maxwell’s trial that it was “not unusual
” for Maxwell – Epstein’s close confidante and the alleged procurer of the young girls from whom he received “erotic massages
” – to sit with him in the cockpit and fly his helicopters.
The accused child sex trafficker is a licensed helicopter pilot,
though it’s not clear how many of the flights Visoski made with Epstein
were made with her present – in the cockpit or elsewhere on the plane.
He did recall flying both a “powder-blue-eyed” singer from
Interlochen Music Camp in Michigan and was familiar with Virginia
Roberts (now Virginia Roberts Giuffre) who has accused both Epstein and
Britain’s Prince Andrew of abuse.
While Visoski said that he “never saw any sexual activity,”
he also acknowledged that Epstein and Maxwell probably would have asked
him to stay in the cockpit had they been engaged in such illicit
He also testified that former US president Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Donald Trump, among others, flew on the jet.
testimony was not the only source of details related to the late sex
offender’s air travel to go public the week of Maxwell’s trial. The
Federal Aviation Administration managed to leak data on hundreds of
previously unknown flights by Epstein’s private planes in response to an
inquiry by Business Insider on Monday. While the publication had
previously asked for the data, they had been refused, and only later
received the records “in response to an unrelated request.”
information was added to a searchable database featuring details on
Epstein’s mile-high companions, one of which now contains data on 2,618
flights by Maxwell’s alleged partner in crime between 1995 to July 6,
2019 – the day the plane landed in Teterboro, New Jersey, where Epstein
was arrested, never to fly again.
It included a list of 704
flights that were previously unknown to the public, many dating from a
three year ‘gap’ in the public record, from 2013 to 2016, when the jets’
movements were told to be “unaccounted for.” The mistakenly released records do not include passenger names, but may “offer clues” about the travel destinations of Epstein’s closest companions, Insider noted.
