A business aircraft cabin wouldn’t be complete without a full range of electronics, with the most important for many passengers being Wi-Fi capability, to download presentations and documents, access e-mail and conduct Internet research. 
 
But cabin electronics isn’t just about the Web; it’s also about ambient LED lighting, flat-screen televisions, high-definition video and entertainment systems, charging ports for cellphones and tablets, satellite communications and noise-cancelling headsets. 
 
In all of these product areas, it seems, something newer, better or faster is always coming along. Among the products announced at the Aircraft Electronics Association’s annual conference in early March were Honeywell BendixKing’s AeroWave 100 satcom system, which offers 3G-like data speeds in a system designed for light aircraft; and Flight Display Systems’ Smart Cabin CMS, which combines control of cabin-management, entertainment and wireless-connectivity systems and allows passengers to operate them via their own electronic devices.

““CEOs go to their vacation homes just after companies report favorable news, and CEOs return to headquarters right before subsequent news is released. More good news is released when CEOs are back at work, and CEOs appear not to leave headquarters at all if a firm has adverse news to disclose. When CEOs are away from the office, stock prices behave quietly with sharply lower volatility. Volatility increases immediately when CEOs return to work.” —David Yermack, a New York University finance professor, whose recently released study shows a correlation between when CEOs take their private jets on vacation and movements in their companies’ stock price ”
