“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]. ”
NBAA Releases Guide on Reimbursement of Flight Expenses
The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has produced a guide to getting reimbursed for flight expenses. The 15-page handbook, which is aimed at owner-pilots operating business aircraft, is intended to help NBAA members understand the accommodations and limitations allowed by the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), including requirements relating to humanitarian or nonprofit flights. Also included in the handbook is a Reimbursement Summary Table for pilots, which makes looking up the reimbursement regulations a little bit easier.
