Centurion Air Cargo operating as Centurion Cargo was an American cargo airline based in Miami, Florida, United States.


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.[1] The airline surrendered its operating certificate to the Federal Aviation Administration in June 2018, after being unable to restructure its operations after financial difficulties.[2]
