Companies needing to reach multiple destinations in a single day rely on business aviation. This type of itinerary is often impossible to keep using other modes of transportation.
When using a business airplane, employees can meet, plan and work en route. Employees can discuss proprietary information in a secure environment and without fear of eavesdropping, industrial espionage or physical threat.
Many aircraft have technologies that allow employees to remain in communication with colleagues on the ground throughout the duration of their flight. This is critical for companies managing a rapidly changing situation.
Business aviation allows companies to safely transport tools and materials that cannot be carried aboard airlines, enabling them to solve urgent problems efficiently and quickly.
Business aviation is a time multiplier allowing key employees to do more, faster. Much like an investment in state of the art computer software, a business airplane boosts employee efficiency and productivity. Efficiency=Productivity=Profits.

“The vast majority -- 85 percent -- of the businesses that use general aviation are small and mid-size businesses, and the pilots who rely on flight instruction services serve everyone from manufacturers to nurseries and greenhouses. These small businesses rely on their planes to get quick and efficient access to distributors, sales representatives and their customers. Many of these businesses serve rural communities and provide essential products and services to keep communities prosperous and thriving.” (Oregonian, 9/19/07)
