Trump and Aviation

President and Billionaire Donald Trump has a long history with Aviation and currently owns two private jets. This is not surprising given his net worth, and it is not something he has tried to keep a secret. In fact, if you were ever at the same airport as him you would know it. Much like his real estate, the Boeing 757-200 he owns is adorned with his last name ‘Trump’ in huge letters. He also owns a super mid-size jet Citation X, which is the fastest business jet on the market.

President Trump likely has more experience with private aviation than any other incoming Commander in Chief in history. It’s not that surprising that he has been very involved with Boeing and negotiations over the manufacture of the newest Air Force One. The Donald has voiced his concerns on Twitter about the cost of the aircraft. For security reasons, much of the technology that goes into Air Force One is kept secret and understandably so. Some people may be wondering if this would be the first AF1 with the President’s last name on the paint job? Will it be trimmed and fitted with gold all over the interior as his current Boeing jet is? Keep an eye on the future POTUS’ Twitter account, and you may find out.

While it is normal for the head of a large corporation to use private aircraft, one might say that Donald Trump is a bigger aviation buff than most. Combined with his campaign promises to keep manufacturing in the US can let us safely assume President Trump will be up to bat for the aviation industry. Aircraft manufacturers employ a great deal of people in the country. It will be interesting to see how the industry will benefit from Trump’s presidential term. Tax breaks are always expected when a Republican enters office and this Republican, we can assume, has many friends who own aircraft. Tax incentives for both ownership and manufacturing of aircraft passed on by Mr. Trump will ensure a prosperous future the aviation industry as a whole.

Are Growing Economies a Good Place for Private Jet Charter Companies?

Like many other industries, the airline industry has suffered over the past decade as the economy dipped and experienced a lackluster recovery. That struggle extended to private jet charter companies, but recent expansions in the niche industry may signal a recovery for private jet services.


Private Jet Charters and the economy

Growing Economies Need Efficient Transportation

Cities and states where business is booming are a great location for private charter expansions. Growing economies mean new businesses, expanding companies and more jobs. All those business folks have to get from place to place to give sales pitches, hold board meetings or conduct training. Private charters can offer affordable, efficient travel at a time when commercial airline ticket prices are increasing and flights run by the biggest airlines aren’t always reliable.

Why A Private Jet Charter for Business?

Private jet charters are expensive. Rates can range from $3,000 to $11,000 an hour for flights, but the services may still make sense for businesses. The cost of premium rates for flight time is alleviated by the benefits of efficiency and control. When business travelers opt for commercial flights, they could spend an entire extra working day traveling, which represents a loss in labor costs and possible delay on important projects. Add the costs expense of food, lodging and communication when traveling, and a one-day business trip can cost thousands. A single charter, which takes an hour or two both ways, can transport an entire team of 7 to 12 professionals for a premium price however mitigating and without requiring overnight stays.

In order to qualify companies must show four full calendar years of sales and meet certain criteria.  They must be US based and privately held.  They also must be independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company) and have 1st-year revenue of at least $200,000; with the most recent year at least $2 million.

PGA Championship at Whistling Straits

This year’s PGA championship at Whistling Straits will be held August 10th-16th.  This is the last major of the year and proves to be an exciting event for golf fans.  Many questions will be answered surrounding golf’s top athletes.  Will Jordan Spieth secure his 3rd major championship of this year? Will Zach Johnson defend his British open championship? Will Rory McIlroy recover from his recent injury in time to compete?  Will Tiger Woods finally find his stroke and get back to prominence? All of these questions will be answered by the tournaments end.

PGA Whistling Straits

Those traveling to the scenic course on beautiful Lake Michigan by commercial airline have their work cut out for them. The course is located an hour south of Green Bay and an hour north of Milwaukee.  For those traveling by private jet or aircraft, they have the option of flying into Sheboygan County Memorial Airport (KSBM) which is only a 15 minute drive from Whistling Straits.  With a runway length of 6,802 feet, Sheboygan County Memorial can accommodate almost every business jet on the market.

SBM Airport is most likely the airport where Golf’s top athletes and fans will be parking their private aircraft.  Anytime there is a sporting event that is located well outside of a major city more fans ultimately elect to take private aircraft because of the ease of travel. Instead of needing a whole extra day, spectators can leave late the night before or early in the morning on the starting day of the tournament and still make it to the event on time. Here are flight times to Sheboygan from some major cities around the country:

Chicago to Sheboygan: 30-45 min.

New York City to Sheboygan: 2 Hours.

Los Angeles to Sheboygan: 4 Hours.

Houston to Sheboygan: 2 Hours 45 min.

Due to Whistling Straits close proximity to Lake Michigan there are several posh resorts nearby for fans to stay at such as the American Club in Kohler, WI.  Fans could potentially check into the American Club and get to Whistling Straights within 30-45 Min of landing at Sheboygan County Memorial.  More information about the surrounding area can be found on the PGA’s area information page.P90081452 (3)

Weekly tickets to Whistling Straits have been sold out since last year. Only a limited supply of daily ground tickets remain so any fans who don’t have their trips planned need to act soon.  Slots and parking are also limited at KSBM Airport as is aircraft availability for the tournament dates. If you are interested in getting a quote on a private jet or aircraft to the last major of the year, call or email Jet Partners today.
