The freight consists mainly of cancelled bank checks for the federal reserve and time critical medical shipments. The explanation for the 2 pilot caravan may lie in the fact that they were running an SIC program for prospective pilots who had less than the commercial IFR minimum flight time requirements even though the 208s require only 1 pilot. It has something to do with the company's ops specs allowing them legally to use SICs in single pilot aircraft. The caravans are very recent additions to the fleet.
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

Hey guys, Aaron here.
Thanks for posting my photos as reference..hehe
I work for AirNet and everything that Falcon Flyer said is what we do. Oh the second person in the Caravan was not a First officer or a Pilot in Training, rather our Hazmat training lady, hitching a ride to OMA then on to STP. The Caravans always fly Single pilot. Employees of AirNet can ride in the jump seat of the aircraft at no-cost, just like Fedex employees can. I actually just got back from PHX today.
