“"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”
Private Jets Ready for Takeoff
You know the economy is improving when private jets return to the skies. And that's exactly what is happening now. Encouraged by rising profits and the diminished likelihood of a double-dip recession, some corporations and high-net-worth highfliers who had idled their jets through the downturn are venturing back into business aviation. The broadening economic recovery is giving many publicly traded companies all the reason they need to pull their jets out of their hangars and start flying again. The great deals that can be had on used jets, meanwhile, are starting to entice buyers who had been waiting for the long-anticipated market bottom.
