If you missed all the different announcements, I started a new podcast called Extremities about a month ago. It's all about how and why the world's most isolated human settlements exist, with the first season being on Pitcairn--the 50 person British territory in the South Pacific. You can listen to the podcast here: http://ExtremitiesPodcast.com

Good tips. Very enlighteneing. However as we move closer to vacation season, i would also recommend webghost for all types of airline fare hacks and accomodation. Travel round the world through any class section for almost half the price of the initial price. I experienced this topnotch services when i booked First Class tickets and hotel reservations at cheaper rates when i travelled to Auckland,New Zealand in July. Webghost saved me about $2000 off my expenses. They also save you lesser time and stress which is why i can recommend to anyone.. Reach webghost33 cyberservices,.com or text 1 470 231 5053 Thank Me Later.

Warren Buffet, who owns NetJets, a private plane charter service, always decried owning these kinds of planes as crazy. He said that even with top business executives, for the number of times in a year you would have a legitimate need to fly private, you are almost always better off chartering. A couple of years ago though, he bought a Bombardier Challenger 600. With a certain amount of guilt, he named it "The Indefensible."

Nice to know Walmart doesn’t want its executives to spend time away from home for one night on their 300-500k a year salary while it doesn’t seem to be willing to provide its rank employees a living wage....

In my opinion Wal-Mart ONLY values the time of its executives. Example: They gave the average workers a raise and then turned around and cut their hours according to what I saw on the news.

This is why I bought a Cessna CJ 4, that I can fly myself. I don't need to waste time allowing TSA to fell my Ass and look at my junk in an X ray, I can leave in the morning, waving at the TSA employee in his truck, Surprise Employees when I show up and be home in time for dinner, plus being single, it's a guarantee panty drop.

I love videos made by people about corporate executive decisions who clearly have never walked a day in the life of a corporate executive. If you think jet travel is simply about "economics" then you have a LOT to learn. Earlier today, I spoke to a CEO who was waiting in the airport for his flight from Newark to San Francisco. He had already racked up over 500,000 miles for the year flying commercial. His company is a smaller one - not the kind that could afford a private jet. However, his travel is much like that of any other CEO... horrendous. There comes a point where logistics matter simply for sanity. Conveniences matter even if the economics don't make sense on a spreadsheet. This is the same reason why someone who commutes long hours in a car each year may opt for plusher leather seats, a stereo upgrade, and some additional bells and whistles in their car - they're spending an enormous amount of time in their car, and while a cheaper model would make more "economic sense," there's a quality of life issue at play. For folks who don't travel regularly for work, it often sounds luxurious. But if you climb the ladder far enough and find yourself in airports several times a week, it'll quickly go from luxurious to laborious. It's a perk to fly private, yes... but one that's partially designed to improve efficiency and partly designed to bring quality of life to people who are sacrificing a LOT of time away from home and family. If there's a way to have mom or dad home for more baseball games, plays, concerts, and birthday celebrations and less time away, then it's hard to put a price on it. The people who look with envy on the high pay of corporate executives, along with perks like private jet travel, are also the very same people who would never dream to sacrifice so much of their personal time - not here and there, for a month, a year, or two... but for decades building their career and climbing that corporate ladder. I'm not suggesting anyone should feel bad for an executive, nor am I suggesting anyone should badly for a guy working in the mail room. Each make their choices. Each lifestyle has its benefits and drawbacks. But far more folks in the mail room seem to forget that the high pay and perks at the executive level also means giving up a good deal of their social life, personal time, and work-life balance.

Freedom of movement that isn’t tied to a hub and spoke transportation system allows for more efficiency and flexibility to land in.., let’s say Bakersfield California and not Las Angeles. Add the ability to go to literally any city in the nation and not be limited to roughly 400 Major airports that provide commercial service, private air travel makes much more sense. It is all about context. I am a low level government employee that has 13 states to manage. Private aircraft transportation makes more sense than commercial travel but because the perception is that the rich and privileged fly on private aircraft, I’m not allowed to use a charter plane or even one that I’m certified to fly myself. I am forced to fly commercially and am now restricted to their schedules and my trips are now cost prohibitive or take so much time, they won’t happen. Please tell me how to travel to Pasco, WA, Billings, MT, Rapid City, SD, Cheyenne, WY, Anchorace, AK, Nome, AK, Lincoln NE, and the other cities I need to get to that are either not served by Delta or American Airlines or are only serviced once a day.

You've neglected to mention that the CEO who makes thousands per hour can work in the back of the company jet or hold meetings while enroute. Or the fact that some wealthy individuals use the a/c for a mixture of business and pleasure... because they can! Not a bad video but somewhat short of facts!

In the corporate world time is money, when opportunity knocks or need arrises the early bird gets the deal done, they can always get/earn more money but they can never get time back, Bill Lear understood this. Cost of operation-fuel, maintenance, ownership etc. is written off on taxes to a large extent the rest is just the cost of doing business or of being competitive.

During his time at HSBC in the 90’s, a family friend was involved in evaluating the business case for the company’s corporate jet. He told me that the most important factor in his evaluation was not the economics, but rather the effect on his career if he’d have nixed it!

It isn't about the wages of the executive. It's about the profit that the CEO brings to the company. If an executive is only manages increases of $1,000,000 a year, they'd probably be fired. If they can cause just one new store to open, it paid for all the trips that year. Also, you're not including the entire team of people that are on the private jet. There is likely 3 or 4 people on that plane, so divide all those numbers by at least 2.

Your comments and education for the masses is super and accurate. But; you had to ad the fact about toxic emissions. The US is the greatest country in the world. (It sounds like you want us to use horseback for travel because there will be much less pollution.) General aviation is absolutely necessary and worthwhile, even if you have a one person company. A small four passenger propeller driven aircraft can make that manager or salesman a super employee. Why would you do this? America is many times larger than it was 50 years ago and there are millions of more autos. Why not talk about these polluters in another video. Why not talk about people who want less pollution leaving their room a/c's on 68 and many of their lights and TV on for 12 hours while they are away for business all day. This wastes energy and pollutes the environment. Private aviation is a billion dollar industry in the US and around the world. So, you want to shut it down because the jet pollutes the environment. Are you going to talk about cows next? On another note; I wish that I was there when congress grilled the Detroit auto industry about their use of jets when they were asking for bailouts. I would have defended them with great conviction. (Did you know Janet Polosi has a Boeing 757 as her private jet? A much smaller jet would carry her to the west coast but this is what she uses. ) I am in the aviation idustry for 35 years.

I used to work at walmart, a buddy (and 10 other employees) got fired for eating a 0.98$ taquito from the deli that was going to be thrown away. The execs flew in to Marquette Mi in their private jets to fire them. He had to write a cheque for .98$ or get charged with larceny.
