“"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."”
Overseas Maintenance Service Launches
Single Point of Contact, based in Corona, Calif., has introduced an aircraft maintenance service exclusively for overseas locations. Pricing depends on the regions where an operator needs coverage and the length of the contract. A map at
www.singlepointassist.com shows airports covered and the support available at each. Areas not in the network may be added by request. Single Point isn't a directory service, said president Richard Gardner, but "an on-demand, hands-on solution to your maintenance issue."
