What chief pilot or Director is going to risk the wrath of the CEO for a plane gone tech in Russia? Not saying it’s right or defensible, but every CEO who threw a fit over a broke plane owns a piece of this story.

A rather large aerospace company that used to be quite vocal about “We support our airline customers and don’t own a company jet” does exactly the same nonsense. “CHI-BFI with a load factor of 2, we want it spared.”

My retirement would be much better if I could get 10% of the money spent on useless spares.

A retired GE aero engineer told me that they are involved with the motors.

Well said/played GF......one must read between the line here and filter out the sensationalism that a headline of “GE CEO hides MULTI MILLION dollar private jet from innocent and deprived shareholders and unknowing employees”.

Chaser G650, Globals, 747 (Air Force 1.5) and many other dollar wasters happen every day in the name of “my time is money”

Just saw what looks like the entire (former) GE fleet sitting on the ramp at Rectrix in SRQ. Anyone know what the plan for the fleet is?

GE was a tenant of Rectrix in BED, and part of the deal with them leaving is that Rectrix gets to sell their airplanes.

The Hondajet brochure, every aviation publication, and the internet told me.
