    A great resource!

    This is a book that corporate aviation has needed for a long time. It sets the scene by helping companies choose an aircraft and a type of operation and then stepping them through the process of getting the operation off the ground. The real value of the book lies in its insight and understanding of how flight departments should work and the methods of achieving those goals. The amount of practical detail and in-depth knowledge of flight department operations is very valuable. What I particularly liked about the book was the many helpful tables, sidebars and figures that provided valuable information to company and flight department personnel looking for a better way of doing things. There are lots of reference materials in the appendix, too. This is a must-read book for anyone involved in business and corporate aviation. It's an easy read, too.
