Faix was a pilot for Pan American Islands. The day before he went missing, he told friends he would be taking a flight to Trinidad, Venezuela or Colombia. It isn't clear if he planned to pilot the plane or just be a passenger. If he was going to pilot, it may have been an Aero Commander 560E or a Beechcraft B65 Queen Air.
