“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
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.
