I had the opportunity to travel and visit with my friends the last month in San Jose. Got on the jet from San Antonio and traveled for many hours. When we landed I would say that my back seemed fine. Before I get into this I should mention that for quite some time there is been chronic pain issues in my lower back and my shoulders. Any type of sleeping in an awkward position or resting for that matter causes moderate to extreme pain that lasts for a couple days. So sitting down in the best posture possible is a very important thing when I’m traveling.
After visiting San Jose, my friends wanted to extend the trip a little bit further. So we ended up taking a trip to Amsterdam for a week. The flight to Amsterdam was a proximately 8 hours, although again I didn’t have much pain just a little kink in my neck. So when I landed I took a nice rest and stretched out so I can enjoy the rest of the evening.
Throughout the trip I felt as though my neck and shoulder were just getting worse. I’m not sure if it was because of my bed but something was causing problems. As I boarded my last flight to travel home I would say that my overall pain would be at about 4 out of 10. However, once we landed back in my hometown I developed a very uncomfortable pain in my neck and shoulder which after 6 months is still causing discomfort.
Back pain is one of the most common issues among adults in America it’s also an issue that is steadily increasing and has no signs I’m going away anytime soon. If you are traveling on a long flight and have discomfort when sitting for long periods of time. It’s highly recommended that you not only get a pillow but also communicate with the staff on board to make sure that if you are feeling uncomfortable you can move or make an adjustment. I truly believe that if I had the opportunity to move then I wouldn’t be in the situation today.
Stay aware of how your body feels and what you can do to alleviate any back pain that you have in the future. For more info on ways to relieve your pain, see these sources.
As we approach the summer one of the most important things for maintaining your aircraft is keeping it properly cooled during the summer. If your aircraft is not properly cool then you run the risk of possible internal damage and down time on your flight schedules. The purpose of owning a jet is to travel whenever you want. So if it’s not maintained for that purpose then what is the point?
Many new owners rely too heavily on their management team alone for taking care of most of the work. It’s important to keep an eye out and ensure that certain things are being taken care of such as adequate air conditioning of your business jet. Many opt for commercial industrial systems to use in their jet hangar. Although, there are other more cost-effective options.
Choosing to go with a portable AC is an excellent option when trying to cool your aircraft. Just to be clear, we’re not talking about while it’s in the air. We’re talking about while its stationary. Additional maintenance on your jet is not cheap so it’s wise to take care of your investment the best that you can. Some of the best portable AC’s can be found in your local shops or even on the Internet. If you’re looking for more information on this and any other HVAC type of cooling. Then be sure to do your research online as you can find a lot of information if you spend the time.

The popularity of private jets is picking up more steam in the online marketplace. If you’re finding yourself caught in the madness of traveling first class in crowded airports, then you might need to look at a few different options. I mean you have the money, and if it’s good for business, then why not?
Since outright ownership is usually quite far out of the price range for most businesses, leasing is typically the next best option. Most private jet brokers will only lease to companies who are willing to fly for a minimum of 50 hours per month. otherwise there isn’t much profit to be made for the broker. Most contracts that we have seen come in with an average of 25 hours, so a lot of requests cannot be fulfilled.
The next best option for anyone looking to possessed her own aircraft is probably fractional ownership. With fractional ownership you don’t necessarily only jet but you have more control of your schedule then if you were to just charter instead.
Typically small and light jets will run you anywhere between 1 to 10 million dollars. Mid sizes range from 10 million all the way up to 60 million. while airliners can go all the way up to 100 million.
