Business Jet Traveler’s 5th Annual Readers’ Choice Survey

Sep 27, 2015 - 3:00 PM

More than a thousand subscribers responded to BJT’s  5th Annual Readers’ Choice Survey. Our thanks to all of you for taking the time to participate and helping us report on how well the industry is serving your needs.

As in last year’s survey, one of the most interesting results was the response to the question, “How do you expect your private flying to change in the year ahead?” When we asked this last year, nearly 40 percent of you said that you planned to fly a bit or much more over the next 12 months. By comparison, fewer than 10 percent anticipated flying a bit or much less.

In fact, your flying apparently increased, but not as significantly as you predicted it might: 28 percent of you said you did indeed fly a bit or much more over the past year, but 23 percent indicated that you flew a bit or much less.

Be that as it may, readers are again anticipating that their bizav use will rise significantly, with 40 percent again expecting to fly a bit or much more and only 8 percent anticipating a minor or major reduction in flight hours.
