Bombardier has appointed movie star and pilot John Travolta as one of its business aircraft brand ambassadors. Over and above being a licensed jet pilot and advocate for corporate aviation, Travolta has an incredibly busy schedule of filming, publicity and charity work. He also likes to take his wife and children with him wherever possible and will add a Challenger 601 to his fleet shortly. “It made sense. I am impressed by its safety, which is very important when I have my family on board,” he told AIN at a September 20 launch event in Hollywood. “Business aviation has always made sense to me in that it offers flexibility, privacy, security and most important, timesaving–meaning I have the ability to keep up with my busy schedule and have more time for my family. On top of that, I’m a pilot; I love to fly.” Travolta recently obtained a type rating for the Challenger 601.
