It’s no news to AIN readers that business aviation has taken a sound thrashing since the recession tightened its grip a couple of years ago. In this special report, we look at how business aviation has dealt with the bad press, hostile politics and sour economic outlook that began when the three “bizjet beggars” from Detroit made headlines in late 2008. Business aviation is as crucial as ever to the efficient conduct of commerce, but for the alphabet lobbyists it has been a slog to restore the segment’s battered image. For operators the mission is to use bizav boldly, openly, wisely and profitably with renewed vigor, no apologies–and never another “no comment” when the cameras, microphones and notebooks are loaded for bear.
