Ace Abbott’s Aviation Affair – Allen Morris

Description

{Ace Abbott utilizes the archives of his 36 year aviation career that took him to 44 countries for his aviation-themed interviews. His layover venues varied from tents in Korea, to five-star hotels in Paris, and jail cells in Venezuela. After a 5 ½ year career in the Air Force that allowed him to fly F-4 Phantom fighter jets throughout the Far East, he returned to civilian life to become a Learjet charter pilot. His many flights from South Florida to nearly every island in the Caribbean and most of the Latin American countries was complemented with his chauffeuring of the rich and famous. He flew such celebrities as Jack Nicklaus, John Glenn, Evil Knievel, Jimmy Buffett, Helen Reddy and Olivia Newton-John, as well as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. He also smuggled Bob Marley from Kingston, Jamaica when Marley’s life was in danger. Ace spent his final 22 years as a Boeing 727 Captain for numerous airlines, most of which went out of business. His 10 airlines in 10 years is likely an unenviable record. The subtitle of his book, The Rogue Aviator is: “in the back alleys of aviation.” Ace’s book provides an insider’s view of a professional pilot’s life on the other side of the tracks.}

Ace Abbott’s Aviation Affair – Private Jets: Justifiable Extravagance

The use of the private jet is often regarded as a mode of travel only used by the rich and famous. On the contrary, it is frequently used by businessmen who are not even amongst the wealthy one-per centers. Clay Lacy was a pioneer in the dynamic world of Learjet charter and remains very much involved with this company, Clay Lacy Aviation. He will expound on his iconic career as he discusses some of the nuances of corporate jet charter. Richard Hodkinson, also a seasoned veteran as both a Learjet pilot, and now as a fleet manager for Clay Lacy Aviation will provide additional information relating to jet charter. He will further elaborate on the many advantages of traveling in a private jet that allows for greatly enhanced efficiency for the executive traveler. The private jet is also critical to the travel of celebrities as it allows them to relax without enduring the possible prying eye of the general public and the paparazzi. Sports stars, particularly the PGA golf pros, who engage in extensive travel, rely on private jet travel to help them meet their demanding schedules as well as spend more time at home with their family. My experience flying Jack Nicklaus in the Learjet during the mid-70s, revealed to me in a glaringly obvious fashion, that his use of the private jet was critical to his professional and family life. …read more
