Private Jets Worldwide
The Learjet 45 is often referred to as a “super” light jet. This is usually spoken by Lear 45 salesmen, but the truth is, the Lear 45 is a terrific private jet. A totally new aircraft design, the Lear 45 fills the niche between the smaller 30-series Lears and the mid-size Lear 60.
With New Year’s resolutions made and year-end reflections completed, I am now resolved to turn my attentions to the year at hand. 2014 is a year full of promise as the tectonic plates in our economy shift along the fault lines of the business cycle. What amazes me is how one can always find voices that cackle out the rosiest of predictions for the future whilst the ever-present doomsday prophets simultaneously herald the end of the world as we know it. There are elements of truth in both arguments. However, if you buy the assumption that private aviation is a leading economic indicator (as I do), I think the optimists have the edge.
In recent years much has been made about the relative benefits afforded by new generation aircraft versus existing pre-owned models. That argument, championed primarily by sellers of fractional jet programs, promotes the notion that “newer aircraft are far superior to pre-owned jets and provide increased safety and reliability."
