On April 7th, President and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association, Ed Bolen, wrote a letter to the editor of the New York Times in response to a column.
In Ed’s letter, he points out that many vital facts were looked over in the column that painted a negative image of business aviation. Ed reminded us ithat economist understand and agree that the depreciation system helps incentivize companies to upgrade assets, from forklifts to cranes, and even aircraft.
The fact of the matter is that business aviation helps a lot of people and communities. In the letter, he also addresses that people and companies in rural areas of the country rely on business aviation to complete, since it is a tool that allows them to travel and send goods and services to other markets. This in turn allows small communities to keep local businesses, as well as the jobs they create.
