For now, I don’t have much to tell you about the flying gang apart from it is something new I have started. 

The name is Inspired by “The Flying Gang” a group of famous ex-privateers turned outlaw pirates during the Post Spanish Succession Period. They made their home at the pirate haven of Nassau on the unpopulated island of New Providence in the British controlled Bahamas. Most of the pirates had previously served in the privateer army out of Port Royal on the island of British Jamaica during the War of the Spanish Succession. However, upon the peace that was ushered in by the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht the thousands of privateers suddenly found themselves without unemployment.

They hit pay-dirt when the 1715 Spanish Treasure Fleet sunk off the coast of La Florida. The Spanish quickly built a salvage camp to attempt to rescue even a small percentage of the unimaginable wealth. However, the Flying Gang had other plans and raided the salvage camp and became extremely wealthy in the process. This heist is known as one of the greatest acts of piracy in the West Indies and allowed the pirates to not only build their own Republic of Pirates but become outright pirates in their own right. This heist is known as one of the greatest acts of piracy in the West Indies and allowed the pirates to not only build their own Republic of Pirates but become outright pirates in their own right. These pirates would take their wealth and fellow pirate Thomas Barrow established a new government on the island and set to work building a legitimate pirate republic. 

The Flying Gang was one of the most influential groups of pirates alongside the Brethren of the Coast and one of the most powerful in the entire Golden Age of Piracy. In fact at one point the British were legitimately worried about the pirates establishing their own breakaway civilization in the West Indies that would threaten the colonial power structure. (Story paraphrased from the golden age of piracy)

I won’t be a pirate but I found the story interesting. I will be using this name to offer my services to people who need help growing their business and accelerating their hiring plans.
