John Travolta Named Bombardier Brand Ambassador

Thursday, September 22, 2011 - 7:09pm

Bombardier has announced that actor, film producer and pilot John Travolta is now a "brand ambassador" for the Canadian
aircraft manufacturer's Learjet, Challenger and
Global jets. Travolta, a vocal advocate for corporate aviation, has added type rating for the Challenger 601 (which he recently purchased) to the list of approximately a dozen airliners and business jet models that he is qualified to fly. According to Travolta, business aviation provides him with "flexibility, privacy, security, and most importantly, timesaving--meaning I have the ability to keep up with my busy schedule and have more time for my family, which is very important to me."

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
