“"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”
NBAA Urges Protest of General Aviation User Fees
National Business Aviation Association president and CEO Ed Bolen is urging the association's members to protest what he calls a "sweetheart deal" for the airlines that would increase user fees for general aviation. To facilitate such protest, the NBAA has developed a tool on its Web site (www.nbaa.org) that makes it easy for business aviation operators to e-mail their congressional representatives.
