Year-over-year business aircraft flying activity is up 1 percent, according to data released by aviation services company Argus. The greatest growth was in the small-cabin-jet category, where the number of flights rose 2.1 percent. Flights increased 1.7 percent for midsized business jets and 1.1 percent for turboprops, but declined 2.8 percent for large-cabin jets. By type of operation, the greatest growth occurred in the small-cabin Part 91 segment, up 10.5 percent. That growth offset a drop in small-cabin activity by Part 135 (charter) and fractional operators (down 8.5 and 11.9 percent respectively. Part 91 flying for all aircraft sizes grew 4 percent, while Part 135 flying dropped 3.3 percent and fractional flying dropped 0.6 percent. Argus’ data is based on “serial-number-specific aircraft arrival and departure information on all IFR flights in the U.S.”

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
