““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
Up Front: 2013
Welcome to the second annual Chinese edition of the Buyers’ Guide from Business Jet Traveler, the bimonthly international magazine we created 10 years ago to help readers maximize their investment in private jet travel.
We were thrilled by the positive response we received to last year’s Chinese edition, and we are delighted to be back in your country, which continues to expand its business aviation footprint.
This new edition contains a valuable aircraft guide, information about business aviation manufacturers, a report on what tomorrow’s business jets will be like and more. Many people have told us that the BJT Buyers’ Guide is the one magazine they refer to all year long.
Business Jet Traveler regularly features detailed reviews of new and used jets as well as articles about buying, refurbishing, selling and chartering aircraft. We also report on luxury cars, worldwide vacation destinations and notable business jet travelers such as Donald Trump, Jackie Chan, John Travolta, Sir Richard Branson and pianist Lang Lang.
