“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
Bizjet Showroom Opens in London
The Jet Business, which bills itself as “the world’s first corporate aviation showroom for business jet aircraft,” opens its doors this month at One Grosvenor Place in central London. The showroom, which will be open by appointment only, boasts a full-scale cabin mockup of an Airbus Corporate Jet in its front window. Floor-to-ceiling screens, running the length of the facility, can display full-size cabin cross sections and floor plans of the majority of available jets. The Jet Business’ operators, who are not affiliated with any manufacturer, promise to provide impartial advice to buyers. We’ll have more on this operation in the February/March issue of BJT.
