Business Jet Traveler » October 2009

I recently was invited to the Los Angeles Dodgers' Sports Camp, or "fantasy camp" as some call it. Unlike most of the events I attend, this one was unique in that I was the only aircraft broker present. At lunchtime-after we'd spent the morning trying to look our best hacking at the fastballs and changeups that zipped our way-we were asked to recount our business experiences.

“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
