Centurion Air Cargo
|Ceased operations||June 2018|
The airline was established as Challenge Air Cargo in 1985 as a subsidiary of Challenge Air Transport. In 1986 the airline became independent of Challenge Air Transport. In July 1999 following the takeover of the scheduled business by United Parcel Service a new company was formed as Centurion Air Cargo to take over the air operating certificate of Challenge. The airline surrendered its operating certificate to the Federal Aviation Administration in June 2018, after being unable to restructure its operations after financial difficulties.
