Corporate Jet Investor Quarterly – Issue 1


Fundamentally, business aviation is about three things: planes, people and passion.

If you love aircraft, we have some stunning Boeing Business Jet 777 concepts – a BBJ777-8 is yours for just $443 million (not including interior); Embraer’s new Praetor 600; and why DZYNE believes the future is Blended Wing Body aircraft.

For people-spotters, we have an in-depth interview with David Coleal who is riding high after the certification of the Global 7500; how Airbus Corporate Jet’s Stephanie von Linstow is the fourth generation of her family to be involved in aviation; a day in the life of Fabian Bello, CEO of Journey Aviation, who responds to emails and texts every morning while doing push ups (email him around 7am EST if you want to check this); and much more.

We hope you will find passion in every story. And in everything we do.

There are actually three ways to read Corporate Jet Investor Quarterly:

We hope you enjoy our longer form articles and stories. We want you to find them useful, fun to read (one of our core beliefs is that serious content does not need to be boring) and useful for your business.

If you have any suggestions for things we should write about, new sections or want to be involved in any way, please email me at [email protected]. Everyone in the industry has at least one brilliant story and we would love to tell yours (we can also change names to protect both the innocent and the guilty).

I would also like to thank everyone who has helped with and supported this first issue on behalf of our team.

If this is the first time you have come across Corporate Jet Investor, our aim is to connect people and ideas in business aviation. If you enjoy our quarterly, you may also like our free One Minute Week Email newsletter (read by thousands of people every week) or our website (which attracts more than 75,000 people every month). We also run conferences and training courses around the world.

Best wishes for a wonderful, healthy and prosperous year ahead.

Here’s to a fun and exciting 2019.
