“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
Going Places: Airshow magic hits the UK
You have to be an industry professional to visit England's Farnborough International Airshow from July 14 through 18, but anyone can enjoy the event on July 19 and 20.
Perhaps the show's most popular feature is its daily four-and-a-half-hour flying display of the world's most advanced aircraft. Many of these aircraft are also on static display, so visitors can appreciate their finer details.
The biennial airshow, which is marking its 60th anniversary this year, also provides an opportunity to see manufacturers' latest offerings for the business jet market. Among the exhibitors are Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream and Hawker Beechcraft.
For more information about the airshow, call +44 (0) 207 227-1043 or visit www.farnborough.com.
