First Class overseas is the creme de la creme, with of course a major carrier. Luf, NW, U, AA, UE, etc. Granted, it's no G550.... but it's also not 15K an hour.

People can't compare it to domestic first class, which, IMO, is a step above a grayhound bus with a slightly larger seat. You can't think "domestic first class" when talking about overseas service. Or intercontinental, outside of the US.

Nothing but positive for Netjets. (EDIT: Using the Marquis Jet Card) Been on chartered G4s with them within the country and the service is top notch. For going out of the country, my friend has a G550 in his family they bought it for relatives to use whenever so we use that.

I work at a local airport, and sometimes if they aren't carrying anybody, I ask if I can tag along and fly right seat. King Airs, beechjets, and a cessna citation cj3 to name a few. Almost got a ride on Pepsi's Global Express 5000
Wow--I'm surprised anybody would let you do that. Most private jet owners are fairly particular with who they allow on their planes (I know I am!).

If they let you--more power to ya! Pepsi's Global looks sick.

Well, I know a lot of the owners.;) I work at a turbine aircraft maintenance shop, so many of big birds and the owners frequently stop by, but I do get shot down a bit. :lol:

Oh and you wont believe who was on that Global...

Chairman of Pepsi herself, and her daughter. Its their private jet...one of a few I assume. They flew in JUST to do a college visit to the campus nearby. :bow:

King Airs are nice. Our friend has a Super200.

The mechanic who flies with them all the time said that its too easy to tell its pepsi wherever they go, so they are painting it just strait blue and red. Its a 2010 Global 5000. :eek:

Not done a jet yet but had a ride from Cornwall to Plymouth in a Augusta A109 once. Will never forget that, awesome!
Helicopters are fun. Ive ridden in a Huey over Devils Lake, ND, and I road in a Blackhawk over the Black Hills and Mt Rushmore. That was fun.

In Europe helicopters make more sense, as there are a lot fewer airports than in the US.
Have flown a few times in one, good fun :)
Have been thinking about getting a helicopter license, but never got round to doing the math on owning/operating one, to do it for a living etc
