I apologize for not publishing for the last week, but due to an illness I have been unable to provide any posts. The good news is - I'm back.....
If you haven't had a chance yet, you should take a few minutes and peruse the "No Plane, No Gain" campaign website at:
I know a lot of business owners, and most own corporate aircraft. My experience is these aircraft are used as tools to grow and manage their businesses, not as toys for the very rich. Most of the CEOs and business owners I know can't and don't spend that much time living the life of luxury.
In fact, you would not envy most of them. For example, one company President I am doing some consulting for right now works 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. He has a travel schedule that would kill a man half his age, and he is building his business not sitting on the French Riviera but working hard every day.
So the next time someone complains to you about biz jets tell them to go to the No Plane, No Gain website and see the stories of some of these businessmen who actually use these aircraft. They might be surprised.
The "airport" was a tn stripe
in a field of grass;
I remember pilot that trip
when you flew low for me
so I could see how the confileds
were laid out -
Do you remember pilot my friend
how we skimmed the yellow miles
on the wings of an afternoon,
You shoulting to me in the sun
-isn't it peaceful here
-isn't it peaceful here?
