Business Aviation is opening to diverse types of users

Published on November 5th 2018
“My experience in the industry has made me most passionate about the service itself, used both as a travel solution and an investment strategy through time-saving and work efficiency on board,” says Maureen Gautier, Associate at The Air Law Firm, and one of the 10 delegates who represented the Business Aviation industry at One Young World 2018.

In my time working in the industry, I’ve noticed that with new advances in technology, Business Aviation as a solution for travel and work is gradually opening to younger and more diverse types of users. New apps and companies are making flying on business jets easier and more affordable. These changes in demographics for both users and workers is causing an organic shift in the dynamics of the industry.

With the growing influence of social media, younger people have more access to business jets.

As young ambassadors for Business Aviation, we should pursue this momentum and continue our efforts to attract more professionals from the younger generations by introducing them to the opportunities available, while changing their perceptions of Business Aviation as a whole. Education is the key to this. By attending job fairs, lectures and presentations, members of the industry can initiate discussions with students and graduates to promote all that is possible, demonstrate our capabilities and explain how the industry is currently evolving.
