Looks an awful lot like Swift Medium, but with slab serifs top and bottom:

Here's a larger sample of the logo:

Wow! That's a great enlargement. How did you do that?

Searched for the logo on Google and set the image size filter to large (and edited out the Pegasus).

Very clever of you. Thanks for taking the time to do that!

Swift Medium has a longer crossbar on the E and is off on other small details, but it is very similar (save for lacking slab serifs):

I'll have to defer to other forum members, who may be able to identify it.

Link to version of Swift as Neue Swift, the 2009 update http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/neue-swift/ More features, but Medium is no longer included. However the new weight of Neue Swif Book, seems to work about as well as Swift Medium
Don


There is also the new weight of Neue Swift Semi Bold
