"Company aircraft" typically refers to an aircraft of the same operator.  For example, JFK ground may say "company" in lieu of "United" if issuing an instruction to another United aircraft; "Follow the company seven thirty seven."

Perfect, Jason.. Thanks! 

Was thinking that was a logical conclusion..

I also enjoyed listening to the ATC goings on when Air Force One came into JFK yesterday afternoon..

I applied to get into ATC back when Reagan fired the Patco workers.. but my civil service test scored only an 85.. They hired guys down to about 90% on the test, I think... But I love flying stuff.. and I'm glad ATC is on the air now.. it's facinating..

Thanks again for your informative and courteous response..
