“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
FBOs Join New Partnership
Seven FBOs have left the Million Air franchise system and switched to a new brand name, Odyssey Aviation, having joined in a marketing partnership with the Odyssey Aviation Bahamas FBO at Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. Odyssey Bahamas also used to be a Million Air franchisee. The seven former Million Air FBOs are owned by Ken Allison, who joined the Million Air franchise system in 1992 with his first FBO at Louisiana's New Orleans Lakefront Airport. Allison's other newly branded Odyssey FBOs are in Asheville, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Chicago; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Lafayette, La.
