Can You Beat the TSA? March 16, 2011

The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has reported that business aviation has experienced a recent uptick – due in part to the hassles (e.g., advanced imaging technology or, perhaps, somewhat less advanced manual “imaging”) facing business travelers who still fly commercial air.  Mostly, this refers to charter, fractional ownership, and other high-end travel options.  But some people have begun considering obtaining a pilot’s license and aircraft to be able to fly themselves to reach customers and business partners across the country.  Though I fully support anyone’s effort to reach such a goal, there are many considerations of safety, money, and raw commitment that should be part of the analysis.

I had the opportunity to talk with such a pilot, as well as a flight instructor and a charter pilot, to get their views on the subject.  If you’re interested in what general aviation can (and can’t) do for you and your business, take a look at the published stories in the Billings, MT Magic City Magazine – and happy flying!
