“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]. ”
Charter Operator Donates to Help Animals
San-Diego charter firm Schubach Aviation ended its yearlong “One Cent Per Mile” fundraising campaign for orphaned animals by donating $10,160 to Helen Woodward Animal Center, which is also located in San Diego. Schubach began the campaign in January of last year, promising to donate one cent for every mile flown by its 15 aircraft through the end of 2011. The company also gave its customers the opportunity to make a small donation of their own, based on their trip miles.
“We’re very pleased to have supported Helen Woodward Animal Center this past year,” said president Henry Schubach, whose own golden retriever and rescued Labrador-mix are permanent fixtures at the firm’s Palomar Airport headquarters. “We’re big dog people here, as are many of our customers, who use our private aviation services sometimes mainly so they can safely and comfortably bring their own dogs with them on their flights.”
