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

    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.
