Have you ever seen posts about the 'Jet-Setting Lifestyle' and thought to yourself, that looks amazing but I could never do that? Traveling around the world in private jets, staying in the best hotels, freedom at your fingertips. It sounds like luxury and lifestyle only found in your dreams.
But more and more business owners, top executives, and families are seeing as more that a luxury, it's about safety. How we travel, where we travel, and how to make that business and vacation travel safe and reliable is at the top of everyone's minds. What once was about is now about safety and convenience.
Private aviation is finding a new uptick in a Covid and Post-Covid world. We sat down with Nick Tarascio, the second generation CEO of New York based Ventura Air Services and a license jet pilot to learn how individuals are both using charter services for travel and even taking it a step further and purchasing their own private planes.
After seeing a decline in business at the start of Covid, he and the Ventura team are now seeing a rapid growth of private air travel. And while private air travel might not be in everyones reach, it's surprising just how affordable and attainable it can be to take a chartered flight or even make that dream of owing your own plane a reality.
For Nick air travel is more than just a lifestyle, being a pilot has taught him how to be a better person. He has taken the lessons he learned and applies what he calls a 'Pilot Mindset' to the aviation, business, and personal world.
In today's conversation we talk about travel in the age of Covid, the business of owning a jet (or even a fleet of jets), entrepreneurship, how to have laser focus, and how it's more affordable to own a plane than you could ever imagine.
