  • ​Ultimate corporate jets: Nine private aircraft that combine business with pleasure

    News | 17 Oct 2014 11:18 | Murdo Morrison

    The USA’s, and the world’s, biggest business aviation convention – NBAA – starts in Orlando on 21 October. The event is all about business aircraft as tools – machines to transport money makers directly where they want to go in comfort, convenience and security, while saving them hours of time. However, there is an element of the industry that is more about indulgence and making a statement. Here we celebrate nine of the most flamboyant carriages of the clouds, some of which, sadly perhaps, never (or have not yet) got off the ground.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Ultimate-corporate-jets-Nine-private-aircraft-that-combine-business-with-pleasure-404881/
