“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]. ”
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."
