“Let me be straight with you. What I'd rather have is an airplane. We just had a third kid. I don't like flying commercial. I like to take my family to Hawaii. When I go east, I'd like to have pilots I know. ”
John Travolta Named Bombardier Brand Ambassador
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."
