Default Air America?

FBI owns a fleet of spy planes. To spy on citizens.

The FBI is operating a small air force with scores of low-flying planes across the country carrying video and, at times, cellphone surveillance technology — all hidden behind fictitious companies that are fronts for the government, The Associated Press has learned. The planes' surveillance equipment is generally used without a judge's approval, and the FBI said the flights are used for specific, ongoing investigations. The FBI said it uses front companies to protect the safety of the pilots and aircraft. It also shields the identity of the aircraft so that suspects on the ground don't know they're being watched by the FBI.
Just a different take of LEO surveillance, but why do they have to so shady about it?

They have been using similar aircraft for drug interdiction for many years. CIA/DoD uses this method for collecting information on terrorist.
