Issue 42 – The Heat is On
As the sweltering Summer of ’23 envelopes us, it’s not just the rising temperatures that demand our attention. While Glenn Frey’s “The Heat is On” once blazed across airwaves, a new kind of heat is sweeping the skies. Beyond the smoky haze and the buzz of cicadas, the business and general aviation industry finds itself in the crosshairs of an escalating confrontation. On one side, the seductive allure of private jets represents prestige, speed, and convenience. On the other, a chorus of environmental advocates demands an end to the seemingly extravagant emissions. From calls for bans to the push for green technologies, this is the story of an industry at a crossroads, grappling with how to rise above its controversies and steer towards a more sustainable future amidst the fiery debates of our time.
