NetJets and SSBJs

 - October 9, 2006, 4:53 AM

A former NetJets researcher places high odds on the likelihood of the fractional pioneer operating a fleet of supersonic business jets. Michael Baur, now with air-limo start-up Pogo, told attendees at last month’s SATS demonstration in Virginia that, while at NetJets, he reported directly to chairman Richard Santulli on his research into the suitability of VLJs and SSBJs for frax ops.

The fact that he now works for Pogo perhaps speaks about the future of small VLJs with NetJets, but on supersonics he had this to say at the SATS podium: “NetJets will do a supersonic. Trust me.” No comment from NetJets.
