“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
BJT Launches Video Companion to Buyers' Guide
Business Jet Traveler Television (www.BJTtv.com) has posted an online video companion to the magazine's comprehensive Buyers' Guide 2008. The Webcasts, which also can be viewed at www.BJTonline.com, feature examples of the business airplanes in the size categories outlined by the Buyers' Guide-from very light jets to bizliners.
The videos are presented by Charles Alcock, a senior editor with BJT's sister publication Aviation International News and editorial director of AINtv.com. Alcock gives tours of the interiors of selected airplanes, pointing out the main features of the cabins and showing how much space they offer, and provides data about each airplane's performance.
