“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
Former JetBlue execs embrace business aviation
A group of former JetBlue executives have launched an operation designed around the Embraer Phenom 100. The company, JetSuite, has ordered 50 of the very light jets with options for 50 more, and plans to lease the aircraft to customers. First deliveries are expected next April. The company has also applied for a Part 135 certificate and expects to offer charter services from bases in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. JetSuite president Alex Wilcox was a founding director of JetBlue Airways, a position he held from 1998 to 2004. He then served as president and COO of Kingfisher Airlines from 2004 to 2005.
