Where Will Your Legacy Take You?

(Photo credits to embraerexecutivejets.com)

The Embraer Legacy 600 is a highly regarded heavy jet known for its superior cabin amenities and overall performance. The Legacy 600 has a class-leading, three-zone cabin configuration, a visibly larger lavatory and  plenty of baggage space for all passengers.

According to Embraer, “the aircraft was developed to cost
effectively meet the air travel needs of corporations, successful
entrepreneurs and heads of state. Designed using the highly
successful ERJ 135 platform, the Legacy 600 combines cabin
comfort, performance and operating efficiency.”

Legacy 600

The Legacy 600 is fully equipped for business, but also designed with passenger comforts in mind. The three-zone cabin allows for work and relaxation to take place simultaneously without interfering with one another. The cabin measures at 6′ in height, 6′ 11″ in width and 42′ 3″ in length. Some of the technological amenities include: WiFi, power outlets, a multi-line phone system, two 17-inch flat screen TV monitors, DVD player, LED lighting, a Honeywell Ovation Select™ cabin management system, and a conference table area. The galley of the Legacy 600 is also quite impressive and often includes: a
convection and microwave oven, a cutting board, electrical outlets, wine chiller, and refrigerator. With the largest, most spacious cabin, lavatory and baggage space (286 cubic feet) of most heavy jets, the Legacy 600 offers something for everyone.

Legacy 600 Galley

As far as performance goes, the Legacy 600 does not disappoint. This jet has two Rolls Royce AE3007A1E high-bypass, turbofan, dual FADEC engines, allowing it a range of 3912 statue miles and a cruise speed of 598 mph, carrying up to 14 passengers. The engines are both fuel-efficient and quiet, the best of both worlds. Some of the seats on this aircraft also lay flat for a pleasant sleeping
experience, while 22 large windows provide a more spacious feel.

It is not just passengers who enjoy flying in the Legacy 600. Keeping with the theme of spaciousness, pilots love the large cockpit and Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite with the latest advancements in aviation technology. For a jet of its size, the Legacy 600 is also
remarkably inexpensive to operate and compares in costs to smaller jets. Embraer commends the Legacy 600 for its “outstanding
operational flexibility in: busy air spaces, terrain-challenged airports and poor weather conditions.”

All in all, Embraer has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs of business travelers and has exceeded expectations in
performance, cabin luxuries and pilot operations.

Is Saying “No” Smart Business Practice for Executive Assistants?

FlyPrivate: Is saying “no” smart business practice for executive
assistants?
Typically executive assistants do what their boss asks, but sometimes a situation arises where the assistant feels they can’t oblige because they are being asked to meet unrealistic deadlines, or the tasks are not clearly defined.  Some assistants have said that they say “no” to their boss, others say they may be inclined to “push back” on certain
requests that they consider unreasonable.  In these situations how would you advise assistants to respond to such requests?

Jan Jones: Being an executive assistant requires a lot of flexibility. Assistants are constantly being asked to shift priorities, or meet deadlines that crop up unexpectedly.  These things are part and
parcel of the assistant’s job.  If your boss is asking you to perform a task that relates to your job, or is part of your job description, then saying “no” or pushing back would not be smart business practice, or the first option to consider without an extremely valid reason for doing so.

I understand that Millennials want more autonomy and control over work conditions, but saying “no” or pushing back on legitimate work requests is not somewhere you should make it a habit of expressing your individuality, because you could end up losing your job if you are perceived as uncooperative or insubordinate.

Recently, it has become popular for business coaches to advise EAs that they should say no to their executives if they feel their workload is at capacity. What these coaches don’t understand about the EA role is that the majority of the EA’s workload stems from them being the assistant to their executive. Some assistants have additional
duties not directly tied to their executive, such as office
management or HR duties, but generally these accountabilities don’t take precedence over the EA’s availability for their executive’s
requirements. It is not usually at the EA’s discretion whether they will perform a task if their executive requests it. So it is risky for coaches to advise assistants to say things like “I’m not taking on new projects at the moment”, or “let me check my schedule and get back to you” when their executive asks them to do something. This
misdirection by coaches is causing confusion for many assistants, particularly those who are less experienced, or who don’t have a good rapport with their boss. They are conflicted about whether or not they should be taking direction from their executive (per their job description and common sense), or whether they should refuse to accept additional tasks because this is the latest buzz being spread in the EA world.

Let’s take a closer look at some examples where assistants might consider “pushing back”, and explore options that are more
productive than pushing back, or saying no.

Unreasonable Deadlines

Let’s say you’ve been given a huge amount of work that has to be completed by a specific deadline.  If you are unable or unsure of how to prioritize the work, ask your executive for guidance.  Explain that it is going to take a certain amount of time to do the tasks and you need to know which of the tasks is absolutely vital to get done to meet the deadline.

If you have an unreasonable executive who insists that all of it has to get done immediately and has equal priority, then tell the executive you are going to use your best judgment to determine which of the tasks has the highest priority. Quickly draft up the order of priority and ask your executive for input.  If you can’t get input, just get
started and do your best.  If they are not satisfied with the decisions you made, ask them how they would have prioritized so you will know in future and politely say that investing a little bit of time to guide you would have been helpful in getting the job done to their satisfaction.

EAs often ask me how to prioritize work when supporting several executives.  To do this effectively, at the outset you must establish a procedure for how you are going to prioritize everyone’s work.
Typically, the executive who is more senior gets a higher priority. If they are part of a team, likely they would know which project and which team member’s task should get priority in order to complete a project by deadline. If each one is saying their work is high priority, and if they are being unreasonable, if you are unable to determine by yourself which task should get the highest priority, then go to their boss and ask for guidance.  Politely make it clear you need help in
order to do the most effective job possible.  If speaking with their boss is not an option, then go to the executive who is typically the most reasonable of the bunch and ask for help.  Explain that you want to make everyone happy, but you simply can’t do all the tasks at the same time, so what do they suggest?

If no one is cooperating, respectfully ask them to work it out among themselves and get back to you as quickly as possible so you can move forward on the right track. That would be the most “push back” from an assistant that I would advise.

In the meantime, get started according to your understanding of which is the most important project.  Worst case, you will have to stop working on the task you selected as being important, and have to start something else.  But assistants are used to interruptions and switching quickly from one priority to another. Always behave
professionally, even if you want to wring their necks.

When things have calmed down, have another discussion with that team and reiterate that you want to do the best for them, but you must have their cooperation in sorting out how work is to be prioritized.

These are some reasons why it is important for the assistant to
understand the business they are in.  Having an understanding of the workings of the business lets the assistant make better judgments about which tasks are a priority.  When you understand the reason for why you are being asked to do something, there is less inclination to “push back” or say “no”, because you see the bigger picture of why something is necessary and needs to get done.  Then you pitch in enthusiastically.

When your executives see you taking an interest in knowing the business, they will start working collaboratively with you, rather than simply giving you instructions and asking you to carry them out. You may soon find that the unreasonable requests are diminishing, and your executives start to treat you with a new level of respect.

Last-Minute Emergencies

There are times when executives haven’t planned sufficiently and are asking you to do things at the last minute, which may involve staying late, or changing your personal plans.  If there is a day when you absolutely have to leave by a certain time, be proactive and give your team plenty of notice that you have to leave and will not be able to take on any last-minute jobs. Then there’s no question of pushing back because you’ve told them in plenty of time you will not be
available.  If your executive has a habit of giving you things at the last minute, discuss with them that you can’t always accommodate last-minute requests.  Ask what you can do to help the executive plan their day. Sometimes last minute requests are completely
unavoidable because things do crop up unexpectedly. Do your best to oblige without being resentful. You are better off with a
reputation for being cooperative than for pushing back or saying no.

Not Part of Your Job Description

So what? If you are being asked to do things that are not part of your job description, consider the nature of the request and who is
asking.  Always consider the bigger picture.  Even if it’s not in your job description, it could lead to something bigger and better for you.  Maybe it gives you a chance to work on a project that expands your sphere of influence.  It could give others in the company exposure to you.  Let them see you at your best and spread the word about how outstanding your work is and how cooperative you are.  How would that hurt you?

At one job I had, once in a while our CEO’s housekeeper was away and he’d bring his dog to work.  A few times during the day I would take the dog out for a quick walk.  Certainly not something in my job description, but as assistant to the CEO I knew the value of his time so I was happy to do that for him and he was grateful that he didn’t have to stop what he was doing to take the dog out. If you can be generous, be generous.  It makes everyone feel good and people
remember you for it.

Instead of being quick to “push back” or say “no”, find a way to get the job done even if it requires some sacrifice on your part. I’m not saying make yourself a martyr, but if you can accommodate
requests, do so.

Take a lesson from comedian, Tina Fey who said: “Say yes and you’ll figure it out afterwards.” Why? “Because the fun is always on the other side of the ‘yes’.” Not just in your job, but in your life, stop
pushing back and start saying “yes”.  For EAs who are reading this, some day I’d love to hear your success stories about the miraculous journey on which that simple word “yes” has taken you.

Hawker 400XP: A Customer Favorite

In 2004, Raytheon (the maker of the midsize Hawker series)
renamed their popular light jet the Beechjet 400A, the Hawker 400XP. The move was designed to create brand identity among the light and midsize jets that Raytheon produced.

In addition to the name, Raytheon also imported cabin comforts of the midsize Hawker including: additional shoulder and head room, a refined interior design, as well as a flat floor, making it the most
spacious cabin in its class. The baggage space, airspeed and range of the Hawker 400XP rate at the top of the light jet fleet.

The Hawker 400XP is ideal for short trips and is most impressive in the air.  With cruise speeds of over 400 knots and fuel-efficient Pratt & Whitney JT15D-5 turbofan engines, pilots agree that the Hawker 400XP is a reliable, efficient and well-designed aircraft.

Primarily available to whole and fractional owners or members of jet membership programs, FlyPrivate’s customers have been able to
enjoy the Hawker 400XP “on-demand” since 2008.

For many customers the Hawker 400XP is their preferred method of travel and we are proud to offer this great aircraft to our customers at a considerable savings and value.

The Citation M2: Cessna’s Latest Light

Cessna Citation M2

Launched in 2011, the Citation M2 is the newest addition to the
CitationJet 525 series small business jets. It fits perfectly between the Mustang and the Citation Jet 1 in the Cessna jet lineup. The
Citation M2 is sleek, stylish and more efficient than its predecessors, with a completely overhauled interior, longer range and ability to travel at faster speeds.

The Citation M2 is a single-pilot light jet, able to travel 1772 statute miles before needing a fuel stop. Equipped with two Williams FJ44 turbofan engines and 1965 pounds of takeoff thrust, the Citation M2 cruises at average speeds of 465 mph.  The M2 can maintain maximum cruise speed up to 39,000 feet, with a maximum altitude of 41,000 feet.

Pilots love the Citation M2. For starters, it was designed for
single-pilot operation. The roomy cockpit  is equipped with the new Garmin G3000 touchscreen avionics system and is built to work with the latest navigation and air traffic control systems. The M2 can get in and out of airports with shorter runways with ease, getting closer to the end destination and decreasing total travel time,
another bonus for pilots and passengers alike.

Standard avionics include:

  • Garmin FMS with dual WAAS-enabled GPS receivers for
    navigation
  • Weather Avoidance Radar
  • Terrain Avoidance Warning System (TAWS-B)
  • Garmin Traffic Collision and Avoidance System (TCAS I)
  • Dual Altitude Heading Reference System
  • Dual Air Data computers
  • Jeppesen ChartView
  • Garmin Safe Taxi
  • Digital Audio System

M2 Interior

The cabin in the Citation M2 is roomier than one may expect, able to comfortably fit 4-5 passengers, with an enclosed lavatory and
adjustable club seating. The seats slide sideways toward the aisle,
allowing for ample passenger headroom while in flight. The cabin is about 5 feet wide and 11 feet long, with a cabin height of 4′ 9″.  The eight large windows also give the cabin a more spacious feel. Other amenities include: climate control, in-cabin technologies, and
adjustable lighting.  The M2 is able to carry 725 pounds of baggage in 46 cubic feet of storage space divided between two storage areas.

FlyPrivate to The Masters© 2019

Photo courtesy of The Masters© Golf Tournament

The Masters© Golf Tournament is right around the corner and the Augusta National Golf Club is not the only place in the Augusta area busy preparing for the festivities to be held April 11th-14th, 2019. If you’re planning to use private aviation to get you to and from the
action on the fairway, it is imperative that you plan ahead. With
thousands of private aircraft expected to be traveling through two of the most popular local FBOs, Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) and Aiken Aviation Enterprises (AIK), flights book quickly and arrival slots and parking is limited.

Over the years, we’ve had the chance to interview the Director of Aviation Services at AGS and the Customer Service Supervisor at AIK, to ask them what passengers should expect when flying into the area during The Masters© week. They also gave us an inside look at what it takes to prepare for such a large international event and how they will accommodate all of the additional travelers. Enjoy!

Photo courtesy of The Masters© Golf Tournament

FlyPrivate®: “What are you doing to prepare for the influx of
traffic expected during The Masters© tournament?”

AGS Director of Aviation Services: “We start the planning process as
early as August. We review items from the previous year’s event and
continually make tweaks to the operations to ensure that the proper staffing levels and supplies are sufficient. We have implemented an
aircraft parking reservation system which will help maximize ramp space utilization.”

AIK Customer Service Supervisor: “To prepare for the influx of traffic
during The Masters tournament, Aiken Aviation takes many steps to
ensure a convenient and pleasurable experience for each individual. Aiken Aviation brings in additional fuel trucks for speedy fueling,
additional transportation to transport passengers and pilots to and from their aircraft if needed, and the line and customer service hours are
extended to accommodate those arriving or departing outside of our
normal operating hours.”

FlyPrivate®: “Do you plan to ramp up staff for the event? If so,
approximately by how much?”

AGS: “Yes, we bring in additional fuelers and customer service support. We normally operate with 15 employees but that number increases to 65 during Master’s week.”

AIK: “Aiken Aviation is doubling its staff for the event in order to swiftly and professionally accommodates each aircraft.”

Photo courtesy of The Masters© Golf Tournament

FlyPrivate®: “On average, how many flights in and out of AGS and AIK do you expect during these dates?”

AGS:Augusta Regional Airport typically has about 2000 operations
during the week and we’re expecting a slight improvement for this year.”

AIK: Aiken Aviation has a little over 400 arrivals during the week of The Masters. This year we are looking forward to another great week of flights.”

FlyPrivate®: “Which dates are the most popular for flights?
(i.e. What are the busiest days?)”

AGS: “Thursday is probably the busiest day because it’s the first official day for tournament play followed by the last day, Sunday evening. It’s hustle and bustle to ensure that every flight is ready for departure. It’s an amazing site to see airplanes departing one right after another.”

AIK: “The latter part of the week is the most popular for flights, when the practice rounds are over and the rounds take place on that Thursday,
Friday, Saturday and Sunday.”

FlyPrivate®: “Do you have any preferred vendors you would
recommend?”

AGS: “I couldn’t pick just one, because they all do a nice job, but what I can say is that the southern hospitality will definitely be in full effect!”

FlyPrivate®: (Check out the Masters Housing Bureau for
properties to rent
during your visit to The Masters©.)

AIK: “Aiken Aviation recommends Enterprise Rent-A-Car service as they will be on site that week for all your needs. There are many wonderful
hotels in the area such as the Town Place Suites and the Hilton Garden Inn, just to name a few.  Downtown Aiken offers beautiful scenery with an array of unique and delicious eateries from coffee shops, diners and delis to three course gourmet restaurants.”

Photo courtesy of The Masters© Golf Tournament

FlyPrivate®: “Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about AGS and AIK that may be helpful when planning their trip?”

AGS: “Plan carefully and super early with respect to lodging, and
transportation. Most importantly enjoy your golf experience, most people never get the opportunity.”

AIK: “It is a pleasant surprise at how easy and convenient it is to fly in and out of Aiken, plus we are an easy, non-congested drive (about 27 minutes) on Interstate 20 to get to the Augusta National Golf Course. Our prompt and personalized attention along with our Southern hospitality is always a delight. We are well-known for our superior customer service and we will strive to make all trips to Aiken, SC a memorable one.”

Experience Luxury in the Learjet 45

Learjet45

The Bombardier Learjet 45 was first introduced at the US National Business Aircraft Association’s annual convention in 1992, and the first consumer aircraft was delivered in 1998. The Learjet 45 was designed to replace the Learjet 35 and offers the classic Learjet
layout with enhanced and improved design features. In 2004, the Learjet 45 evolved into the Learjet 45XR which offers an upgraded engine and improved climbing performance.

The Learjet 45, and newer Learjet 45XR, are categorized within the light jet class, but offer many of the features and benefits found in midsize jets. When looking at performance, the Learjet 45 excels in both high and low speed handling, runway performance and fuel
efficiency. On the interior, the Learjet 45 was designed to offer the most passenger space possible for a light jet.

Learjet 45 Interior

The Learjet 45’s cabin can accommodate 8 passengers and a flightcrew of two. The additional legroom, galley storage, full width aft restroom, and wider than average seats offer passengers a
comfortable and practical experience. This jet also offers work
tables that fold down from the walls and a quiet, temperature
controlled cabin, ideal for working from the air. The Learjet 45 has an external baggage compartment that provides 50 cubic feet of baggage space and another 15 cubic feet of internal storage. The Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite comes standard on the
Learjet 45XR and includes a 3-D approach navigation system.

When comparing the cruise performance, the Learjet 45 is top in its class. It can cruise at speeds of 465 mph and is able to fly 1,824
nautical miles nonstop. This jet also offers the most advanced anti-ice system of any light or midsize jet, can complete a 1,000
nautical mile trip in just over 2 hours, and the 904-gallon fuel system can be filled rapidly in about 10 minutes, offering very quick
turnaround. The Learjet 45 really shines at cruise altitude and offers exceptional handling capabilities, as well as fuel economy. The
Learjet 45 and Learjet 45XR are great options for anyone looking for a cost-effective light jet that offers superior performance.

Learjet 45XR

Featuring the First-Class Falcon 900

The Dassault Falcon 900 is a heavy jet designed as a larger,
enhanced version of the Falcon 50 super midsize jet. The Falcon 900 received FAA certification in 1986, and while it does share a similar configuration to the Falcon 50, it has a larger range, can seat more passengers and has a longer and wider fuselage. The longer fuselage allows the interior to be more spacious and comfortable, while also providing passengers a bit of separation from the crew.


The Falcon 900s‘ design incorporates composite materials wherever possible, drastically reducing the weight of the aircraft. The flight range is impressive, able to travel 4,000 nautical miles because of the innovative three-engine configuration. The third engine is ideal for international flights and also offers flight planning and safety benefits. The Falcon 900 can seat up to 12 passengers and travels at average speeds up to 535 mph. The Falcon 900 jets share virtually the same wing design as the Falcon 50.

In 1994, Dassault introduced the Falcon 900EX, a longer range
version of the Falcon 900 with increased fuel capacity. The Falcon 900EX features a Honeywell Primus 2000 avionics package, engine upgrades that provide the aircraft with additional thrust, and a Head-Up Display for the pilot.

The Falcon 900s offer a spacious cabin with some seats that can be reclined into a full-length bed perfect for a mid-flight nap. All of the additional seats are also fully adjustable, able to swivel and recline.  This jet also has a private lavatory, as well as an isolated galley and cockpit. The Falcon 900 offers 127 cubic feet of internal baggage space that can be accessed during your flight.

Few other jets in it’s class can compete with the Falcon 900 in terms of passenger comfort, range and performance.
