When big crowds transit through Wilson Air Center’s Charlotte, N.C. FBO it’s usually because there is a Nascar race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. On March 2, however, the 650 people who filled the Wilson hangar came to see not race cars but a gathering of very light jets and jet mockups. The event brought VLJ developers together with prospective buyers and included seminars and a mix of flying VLJs (the Cessna Mustang and Eclipse 500), cabin mockups and seminars on financing, insurance, tax and legal issues related to VLJ ownership. The event was sponsored by Charlotte-based management firm Jetpool and Bank of America.
