JETNET JOINS THE NBAA LEADERSHIP COUNCIL:

Earlier this year, The National Business Aviation Association invited JETNET to join the NBAA’s Leadership Council.  We are proud to join the ranks of the most prestigious and influential companies in the industry.  The council exists to offer support and guidance to NBAA in its critical mission to secure favorable local and national government policy for business aviation.  It brings together the leading participants on the forefront of business aviation innovation.

This invitation comes to JETNET at a perfect time in our company’s growth. At this time, we all have encountered varied challenges to our businesses. Having launched our forecasting arm, JETNET iQ, www.jetnetiq.com, last year to great success, we are in the perfect position to provide factual data, gathered by our staff of researchers that will secure insight into the plans of aircraft operators worldwide.

Paul Cardarelli, JETNET’s Director of Sales and Marketing, serves as our representative on the council. He has been tireless in his promoting the industry benefits of JETNET iQ and has served as speaker at our recent iQ Summit in New York City. Cardarelli has insight gleaned from iQ that is invaluable to NBAA. “Now more than ever aircraft owners are in need of advisement and guidance with regards to ownership and purchasing decisions.   For many this includes reconciling to the fact that their current aircraft has so substantially diminished in value that its retirement may be the only viable solution.” Per Cardarelli.

Another primary concern has been the world economy and the serious issues facing our industry’s growth.   One of the more pointed facts to come out of the iQ research, per Cardarelli, “While China cannot be ignored for its potential as a burgeoning market for business aviation, it simply will not represent enough airframes in the short term to resurrect our industry from its current recession.    For the foreseeable future North America will remain the dominion of the largest business aircraft fleet and so our attention to our customers there must not be distracted. “

Membership is exclusive and reserved for organizations seen by NBAA as playing a leadership role within our industry.    For more information on the NBAA Leadership council log on to http://www.nbaa.org/membership/leadership/. And for more information on JETNET iQ, contact Paul Cardarelli

Autumn Leaves, or Rather Autumn BRINGS!

When you have been entrenched in this fabulous business for as long as I have, you know very well what autumn brings….The NBAA Convention!

I feel a warm and fuzzy need to reflect on these recurrent shindigs after logging over 30 years worth of attendance. I love them! I love the energy, the optimism, the over the top displays, the junk we collect, all this has been keeping me coming back year after year. It’s fun! I get to see old friends even if it’s just for this one time a year. We catch up on what’s happening even if it’s not all business news. We get to meet those customers who only know us by a voice over the phone.

It’s almost as if NBAA is our marker, a turning point in our business that surpasses even our fiscal year or anniversaries. It’s our place to showcase new product, most of which we have worked on most of the previous year to have ready. The pressure to have something “new” for NBAA is staggering. You have to be there.

NBAA , as we lovingly call the show, has evolved over the years as have I. NBAA has grown in space and in attendance. It now attracts bizav players from all over the world. The venues available to house all our aircraft and services and people are few since we have become so large.

Both NBAA and I are maturing. I have seen it happen. Our industry is part of the world economic firmament and it shows.

The “hoopla” factor has calmed down over the years as well with fewer and fewer marching bands and dancing girls. We have gotten more serious. That’s a good thing in my estimation. As for me, I now wear sensible shoes and gather up the do dads for the grand kids, which is also a good thing. I can’t stay up as late as I used to in the old days….I need my sleep! Not so much of a good thing.

I am still as happy looking forward to the 2010 NBAA as I was for the 1978 NBAA!
It has been a great trip and a helluva lot of fun!

Come by our booth #8401….we have great things to show you.

The Media and The Corporate Jet

nbaa_usatodayJust this week I read an announcement that NBAA pulled its “No Plane No Gain” ads from USA Today because of the paper’s negative slant on anything pertaining to general aviation.

I can see NBAA’s point. Why funnel ad dollars to a publication that has routinely expressed its negative feelings about corporate aviation? But first, I have to scratch my head over this one because Gannett, the owner of USA Today, owns a Falcon 2000 and a 6.25% share of a Citation Sovereign. So they already “drank the Kool-aid” so to speak, so why the hypocrisy? Why the “demonstrated anti-general aviation bias” to paraphrase Ed Bolen, President and CEO of NBAA.

In the USA Today article in question, the writer decries the FAA funding of “little used airports”, “hangars to store private jets” and “free parking lots”. He goes on to say that more than 2 billion in low priority funds has gone to airports used mostly by private jets and piston engine planes. Well then I would like to ask Mr. Dubow, Gannett’s COB & President, “is Gannett a member of NBAA?” Do you like the hangar in which you keep your Falcon? “Do you enjoy the services of private terminals that give you the privacy and space in which to work?”  “Does your FBO have numerous amenities to make your travel comfortable and efficient”? Obviously you like the fact that you can get where you need to be without delays and crowds because you flew over 11,600 miles in the last 90 days!

We know the value of having the aircraft as an essential tool for business as well as Mr.Dubow does . We know that our industry supports over one million jobs in this country.  My point being, I respect  NBAA’s pulling their ads, targeting the already near dead newspaper industry where it hurts, in their revenue. Yet clearly the message has to be stronger if a national publication can be so blind to the realistic benefits of general aviation.
