This Bankrupt.com page
contains some interesting information. (Search for "SKYWAY
COMMUNICATIONS: Case Summary & 20 Largest Unsec. Creditors" to find the correct point on page)
Firstly, it contains this:
Debtor: Skyway Communications Holding Corp.
fka I-Teleco.com, Inc.
fka Mastertel Communications Corp.
6021 142nd Avenue North
Clearwater, Florida 33760
And check out under the 20 largest unsecured creditors. "Royal Sons, Inc. - $127,500"
Dunno if this is relevant, but check out the address of Brent Kovar that's listed on Google maps. The satellite view shows it as an empty lot among
a bunch of houses.
Update: This page

Several things of note: Aircraft N391SA, a Beechcraft which was apparently also used to smuggle drugs has the same listing on the FAA site where it
was exported to Venezuela. However, the former company it was registered to? Sky Way Aircraft Inc!

registration N168D (the real N168D is a CN235-300). The Beech is confiscated because there were strong indications it was used for a drugs transport.

contemplated sale of whatever assets of the company might still possess. Skyway, as it was known no longer exists. This scam, at long last is
There is a ton more information on there I want to read and I'm going to save a copy of the cache before it disappears completely. This is the most
information I have found so far on Skyway.
There's another post in the GNN thread that goes into the various people in Skyway, James Kent in particular. He was previously with Satellite
Access Systems, Brent Kovar's father's business. Satellite Access Systems was purchased by... a snowboard company, Corsaire, Inc.
