The pilot of Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile private jet, the Lolita Express, has testified about former President Donald Trump being among passengers on some of his flights.
Pilot Larry Visoki made the claim under oath on Tuesday while testifying at the sex trafficking trial of Epstein’s righ-hand woman, Ghislaine Maxwell.
He had been asked by prosecutors to describe his experience and he listed the famous passengers he’d flown, saying: ‘I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him.’
Others who Visoki said he’d flown included Bill Clinton and the actor Kevin Spacey.
Trump and Epstein knew each other in the 1990s when they were both New York City playboys and successful entrepreneurs.
It was previously reported that Trump had flown on Epstein’s plane from Palm Beach, where both had homes, to Newark, in 1997.
Epstein is also said to have flown on one of Trump’s private planes.
Their relationship soured when Epstein hit on a towel attendant at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Palm Beach club, in the early 2000s, before Epstein was convicted of soliciting child prostitution.

Visoki spent most of his testimony talking about the girls Epstein brought on the plane.
‘Mr. Epstein brought her to the cockpit. She had piercing power blue eyes,’ Visoski said of one alleged victim on Tuesday morning.
Maxwell’s attorney Christian Everdell asked, ‘And beyond the striking blue eyes, you have said she had large breasts, right?’
Visoski answered that she was ‘a mature woman.’
When asked if he remembers Virginia Roberts, Visoski replied, ‘Yes. A shorter woman with dirty blonde hair.’
‘She didn’t look young. I mean, whatever you decipher is the definition of young. But she was a woman in my category,’ he added.
Maxwell entered the Manhattan courtroom Tuesday morning wearing a cream sweater, black slacks and looked on as Visoski was questioned.
He said Maxwell ‘was the Number 2’ and that ‘Epstein was the big Number 1’ when asked about their relationship.
When asked how many other assistants Epstein had in addition to Maxwell, he replied that there were many, identifying Maxwell’s own assistants.
He specifically named Sarah Kellen – who has been accused of playing a pivotal role in Epstein’s empire: procuring girls, coaching them and acting as a ‘lieutenant’ to Maxwell.
Visoski was also asked to identify parts of Epstein’s 10,000-acre Zorro Ranch in New Mexico where airplanes were parked.
He said he would often go to the main residence to pick up luggage and help install electronics. Visoski said he performed similar tasks on Epstein’s private Caribbean island Little St. James and would also fly the helicopter to the island from nearby St. Thomas.
He added that the island could also be reach by boat.
Visoski first took the stand Monday following opening statements.
Asked what he had made of Epstein’s relationship to Ghislaine Maxwell, he said it was ‘more personal than business’, but added: ‘I wouldn’t characterize it as romantic.’
Visoski said he had been hired in 1991 and had flown Epstein around roughly ‘every four days’. The pilot was so close to his boss that his daughter was reportedly married at Epstein’s New Mexico ranch.
The pilot captained Epstein’s Boeing 727 jet – known infamously as the ‘Lolita Express’ – just one of several private aircraft which prosecutors believe was used to shuttle underage girls between Epstein’s residences in New York and Palm Beach.
Visoski described the interior of Epstein’s New York mansion in detail, as photos of the properties around the world where abuse is alleged to have taken place were displayed for the jury.
Epstein used his private jet – nicknamed the Lolita Express because of some of the alleged underage passengers – to fly himself, high-powered friends, including Bill Clinton, and a parade of young women.
Last year, it emerged flight logs for all of Epstein’s private aircraft had been subpoenaed, sparking fears among celebrities who had partied with the pedophile.
The attorney general in the Virgin Islands where he owned a private island has reportedly demanded to see the logs.
Victims have since claimed Epstein had a large bed installed on the jet where guests had group sex with young girls, fulfilling their warped fantasies.
In 2015, victim Virginia Giuffre Roberts filed a lawsuit against the billionaire, claiming he recruited her as a ‘sex slave’ at the age of 15, sexually abusing her for years on his private jet as well as his various homes in New York, New Mexico, Florida, and the US Virgin Islands.
A 2019 report claimed court filings showed that Epstein sold the Lolita Express weeks before his arrest on July 6 that year.
Huff and Darren Indyke, a lawyer and co-executor of Epstein’s estate, were both contacted for comment by MailOnline.
Visoski’s testimony was given on the first day of Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial on sex trafficking charges in Manhattan’s Federal Court House yesterday.
The British socialite was Epstein’s ‘second in command’ and lured vulnerable teenagers for him to assault, a jury in New York heard.
The courtroom was packed as Maxwell’s trial on sex trafficking charges got under way, with observers queuing in the freezing cold from 5am to guarantee a seat. They were silent throughout as lurid claims against Epstein’s alleged madam were aired.
Maxwell herself listened intently throughout the first day of the trial, occasionally scribbling in a notebook and turning to look at her sister, as Assistant US Attorney Lara Pomerantz accused her of ‘heinous crimes’.
The prosecutor warned the jury that some of the evidence they will hear over the course of the six-week trial may make them uncomfortable.
But, after hearing it, she added, they would ‘reach the only verdict possible – that Ghislaine Maxwell is guilty’.
Miss Pomerantz accused Maxwell of being one half of a powerful couple with Epstein, devising a sick ‘pyramid scheme of abuse’.
