For more than 50 years, business owners, executives, and advisors have been using aircraft to make the most effective use of their time. During this last half century, dozens of magazines and now websites have sprung up, providing information on the technical aspects of how best to fly and maintain those aircraft. In today’s challenging economy, with business leaders like you flying more than 30,000 turbine aircraft between and among cities and continents worldwide, you need one go-to source for the best, most up-to-date information on the business of owning, operating, and using corporate aircraft.
We’re proud to introduce Business Aviation Advisor as that source: a print and electronic magazine presenting timely, critical information written by industry experts on virtually every aspect of business aviation.
Joining these industry experts is Dave Collogan, award-winning Washington journalist, and former Editor-in-Chief of The Weekly of Business Aviation. Dave has been covering aviation in the nation’s capital since 1972, and will report on domestic and international regulatory issues affecting business aircraft ownership and flying.
Whether you own and operate a jet, turboprop, or fractional share, or use a jet card or occasionally charter, Business Aviation Advisor is here to keep you informed. In this issue Rollie Vincent offers an overview of the state of today’s market. Thinking about switching from chartering to owning? You’ll find out how here. Considering joining the more than 250 bizliner owners? Jim Mose provides the roadmap for the new and used purchase process. If you use a charter broker to book your flights, Dave Collogan’s update on the DOT’s new licensing efforts and changing rules is a must-read. Joe Moeggenberg, Dr. Chris Sidford, and Susan Friedenberg keep you apprised of key safety issues, including managing operational safety, medications when traveling, and cabin safety.
And me? Well, as the middle of three generations in the business aviation industry, I grew up in and around airplanes. In these pages, you will see my own 40-plus year passion for safety, service, excellence, and cost-effective operations. Our select group of advertisers are colleagues, friends, and people we trust to bring you the highest-quality products and services.
