For some business jet buyers, money isn't a consideration. Such buyers can focus on completing or refurbishing a cabin to reflect their tastes and lifestyle and needn't worry much about what others will think of it. That group should now turn to the next story.

Three years ago, Hawker Beechcraft began delivering what is arguably the best of the venerable 125-series aircraft: the Hawker 750. Performance and price both help to make this midsize-cabin model a strong contender.

Business meetings these days often seem to have as much to do with technology as with human interaction. Out come the BlackBerries, iPhones, iPads and laptops.

A friend once recounted his story of a jump-seat ride aboard an Aeroflot airlines Tu-154 during the 1980s. After the Russian trijet had reached cruise altitude, the flight crew broke out a bottle of sherry and began celebrating, because they had managed to survive another takeoff in an airplane not known for its reliability.

“"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."”
