Medical Help, Wherever You Go
While bringing your doctor along on all your travels would no doubt give you peace of mind, it might not be cost-effective or practical. Since 2009, however, Black Bag has offered travelers a reasonable alternative: a worldwide 24/7 medical consultancy. When you sign on with the service, a company representative interviews you about your medical history.

Discovery Channel Founder John Hendricks
To appreciate what John Hendricks has created, just spend some time watching his Discovery Channel. Consider, for example, the moment on the Curiosity show when Dr. Dunn rips a piece of tape off host Mike Rowe's eyebrow and finds what he is seeking: eyebrow mites.

Dassault’s Falcon 2000s
I first wrote about the Falcon 2000 for this magazine in 2006, for our “Used Jet Review” department. Back then, I liked the airplane for its cavernous cabin, good fuel economy, great range, pleasant flying qualities and strong resale value.

Two Star Generals
Nearly three years ago, many were writing off General Motors for dead. They would have been right had the U.S. government not decided that the company–or more correctly, its huge workforce and the employees of all the suppliers that depended on it–was too big to fail.

I've hunted wild ducks, grouse, pheasants and other game birds with varying levels of enthusiasm for 40 years. But I had never seen anything like this: two resplendent four-foot-tall adult male wild turkeys, all bronze and black and iridescent, galloping on stilt-like legs across a cattle pasture the size of two football fields.

Ferrari 458 Spider
If there is such a thing as an Everyman's Ferrari, you're looking at it. The newly introduced 458 Spider caters to a segment whose taste for open-air driving can carry the stigma of lesser machinery hampered with the weight penalty and compromised structural rigidity of a vanishing roof.

"We like to keep a low profile for our jet use." I can't tell you how many times I've heard variations on that line since I arrived at Business Jet Traveler in 2004. It has been a constant challenge to find business jet owners and passengers willing to be profiled in our pages and companies that will go on the record about their use of private aviation.

Preowned aircraft annual report
Considering what 2011 served up in terms of worldwide calamity–from government overthrows to devastating natural disasters to a global debt crisis–it's a wonder anyone had the confidence and wherewithal to buy a corporate jet.
