If you’re interested in buying a new jet – and who isn’t these days – you should check out The Jet Business website.
Or better yet, visit The Jet Business showroom in London. The one in England. Apparently it’s the place to visit if you have a few million bucks to spare and don’t care about soaring fuel prices. And you might run into some interesting folks.
The showroom is “designed to provide high net worth individuals, government officials, royalty and influential corporate executives with a place to plan their business jet sale or purchase with experts,” says a news release.
Apparently The Jet Business treats clients pretty nice. The company provides “unparalleled expert advice, access to the world’s most extensive aviation information library, consultations on tailor-made interior concepts and a lifetime entitlement to service and aftercare,” according to the website.
Lifetime entitlement — that sounds good.
I don’t hang out with any high net worth individuals, but it’s nice to know they have a place to shop for aircraft.
“Pull up! Pull up! You’re not going to make it. ….. Uh, you have exceeded the capacity of the landing gear.”
Those words crackled over my headphones some years back after I failed to safely land a cargo jet at the Louisville airport.
Fortunately, I was flying a UPS flight simulator and not a real jet. One of the perks of my job is that sometimes I’ve been allowed try fun stuff in pursuit of a story. I was reminded of my flight simulator mishap today when I read that FedEx planned to invest a bunch of money in its flight-training simulator operations in Memphis.
