Sussman was the owner of a Dassault Falcon 2000 private jet with registration N888CE. The 888 probably refers to his business address at 888 Los Olas Boulevard in Ft Lauderdale. (His yachts are also registered to a company using 888 in the name).
‘CE’ probably refers to his daughters Carolyn and Emily. The jet has a list price of around US$ 30 million.
N888CE is formally owned by a company named MAGIC CARPET ENTERPRISES LLC, of which Sussman is the shareholder.
He sold the Dassault Falcon in 2018, but he kept the registration number. So he probably ordered a new aircraft.
