“"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."”
Golfer Adam Scott Sells Gulfstream Jet
Adam Scott-the subject of BJT's October/November 2008 cover story-has sold his brand new Gulfstream G450 before taking delivery.
Without giving exact pricing details, Scott strongly insinuated that he made a nice profit on the deal and that he sold the aircraft after getting an offer he could not refuse. There is an approximately two-year waiting list for the G450, so it appears an eager (undisclosed) buyer has now jumped to the front of the line. Scott ordered the jet in 2008 after signing a promotional deal with Gulfstream.
