I had an opportunity to watch a You Tube video of President Ed Bolen’s discussion of the case for business aviation. This video was done last year on the Fox Business channel. Many corporations came under fire last year when government bailouts helped those companies continue to do business. The citizen auditors were out in full force calling for cutbacks and calling for “luxuries” such as corporate jets to be put aside and cut from the budgets of companies. As is always the case there is another side to the coin that many do not see and I think that this video gives us an idea of what that other side of the coin may look like.
I am going through a business jet report on the forecast of business jet sales and and state of the business put forth by the Teal Group and will be discussing some of the details of that report but this is perhaps a good place to start with reference to how the current state of business aviation has reached we hope the bottom. The No Plane No Gain program is a great source for business aviation industry information and is a good place to bookmark for those in the business of business aviation.
