Business aviation is innovative, forward-thinking and disruptive

“Business aviation offers the rare opportunity to acquire your time back,” says Dan Cook, Vice President, Sales at Victor and one of the 10 delegates to represent the business aviation industry at One Young World 2019.

Business aviation is essential in the modern world, and it is both challenging and rewarding to work within it. At face value, it is a connector – simply a flight from one destination to another – but to those that work in the field it is so much more.

In a world where there often aren’t enough hours in the day, business aviation offers the rare opportunity to acquire your time back, in addition to offering a high level of privacy and security.

We have our sights set on creating a more environmentally responsible future for private travel.

I am fortunate enough to have started my career in an innovative, forward thinking and disruptive company in the business aviation sphere. Everything we do strives towards creating a better, more transparent service for our clients, and we now also have our sights on setting a new standard, creating a more environmentally responsible future for private travel.

As the planet presents us with a platter of global issues to resolve, it is crucial that all industries and their leaders stand up and take accountability for their actions. Business aviation must address its contribution to climate change and the carbon footprint it leaves behind. The passion of the younger generation with regards to these issues will inevitably bring about invention, modernisation and evolution to our industry and its practices, in both the short and long term.  

I am delighted to have the rare opportunity to be surrounded by the world’s young leaders and look forward to being inspired by their stories and ideas for the future. The purpose of the One Young World summit extends beyond the industry itself, but I am looking forward to seeing what can be learned, taken away and implemented into the industry in which we work.
