“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
Bizjet Showroom Opens in London
The Jet Business, which bills itself as “the world’s first corporate aviation showroom for business jet aircraft,” opens its doors this month at One Grosvenor Place in central London. The showroom, which will be open by appointment only, boasts a full-scale cabin mockup of an Airbus Corporate Jet in its front window. Floor-to-ceiling screens, running the length of the facility, can display full-size cabin cross sections and floor plans of the majority of available jets. The Jet Business’ operators, who are not affiliated with any manufacturer, promise to provide impartial advice to buyers. We’ll have more on this operation in the February/March issue of BJT.
