Private aviation has a number of benefits for travelers. However, many individuals believe this type of travel is only for the extremely wealthy. While private jet travel might not be the right choice for everybody, travelers should look beyond the following myths when exploring their options.
Although traveling by private jet does cost more than flying commercial, it’s not as inaccessible as many people believe. Most of the private jets that you see at the airport belong to charter services. These planes are primarily used by business people.
Private jets allow for greater flexibility and are able to land in more airports than commercial planes. This can actually save travelers on additional traveling costs and accommodations.
Private jets are able to land in more airports than commercial airlines. This gives pilots the option of waiting until bad weather passes or choosing to land in an alternate airport.
Some of the fastest jets in the world are private jets. In addition to being faster, private jets are able to travel above commercial airlines, helping them avoid the bad weather and turbulence that can slow them down.
When you fly private aviation, you effectively eliminate lengthy wait times. There is no need to wait for a private jet to be unloaded and boarded. Travelers flying private aviation avoid security checks as well. Flying private aviation ensures that you arrive at your destination on time, every time.

Most executives don’t think about traveling until the day of an event. While this might be alright for local conferences, many executives must travel great distances to reach their destination. Conference travel can be exhausting and a lack of preparation can make the experience an absolute nightmare. In order to make your travel as stress-free and enjoyable as possible it’s important to consider the following tips.
Pack the Essentials
Before leaving, make sure that you have everything you need. Visit the hair salon, make sure the flowers are watered, and important items include business cards, conference identification, charging devices or adapters, credit cards and official identification. If you will be traveling a great distance, it’s a good idea to bring along a toothbrush, toothpaste, and other toiletries. Also remember where you are visiting. Are you visiting a manufacturing plant where you might need Bulk Nitrile Gloves or will you be outside where you just need a warm pair of gloves.
Decide Where to Stay
If possible, it’s best to choose the hotel provided by the host organization. This location has been chosen because it is close to the event. Staying in the host’s hotel provides an excellent opportunity for networking with other attendees.
Make Smart Choices When it Comes to Food
It’s easy to opt for convenience foods when traveling. However, eating healthy will help you feel better and be less stressed during conferences. Before arriving at your destination, check the online menus of local restaurants. Consider making a list of suitable choices.
Plan Your Agenda
Planning is an essential part of getting the most out of any experience. This is especially true for corporate events. Most conferences offer numerous meetings, guest speakers and seminars. Determine which sessions are most appropriate for your specific needs and be sure to leave enough time for in-house networking before and after gatherings.
Choose a Reliable Transportation Service
When traveling to a conference you will need to choose a service that offers friendly, professional and reliable service. An experienced transportation service ensures that you will arrive on time, comfortably and well-prepared for your conference.

From inauguration day, to romantic anniversary dates with Michelle, and official outings in Washington DC and around the nation, President Obama’s ride is one of the safest vehicles ever made; it has to be. The 44th president’s limo — known colloquially as The Beast — is made by Cadillac, a brand with a long history of providing secure transportation to U.S. presidents since Woodrow Wilson rode down the streets of Boston during a World War 1 victory parade in 1919.
You know The Beast (How could you not?) when you see it, but did you also know?

Meet nine-year-old Lauren Santora and her family.
When Lauren was four years old, her brother (pictured right center) was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, a hereditary genetic autoimmune disorder related to the small intestine that causes the sufferer to develop a severe intolerance to gluten. And so Lauren was tested, too: Positive. The Santoras knew they would adjust; they’d have to read ingredient labels, and ask for the gluten-free menu, but they knew they’d be okay.
A year passed, and Lauren and her parents visited the doctor’s office for a routine check-up. Unfortunately, the results of the five-year-old’s blood work proved to be anything but routine. Her blood sugar levels were extremely high — dangerously high. The young girl was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and admitted to the hospital, where she remained for four days as her family learned how to cope, and how to care for Lauren’s illness.
Lauren is now nine years old, and is entirely dependent upon an insulin pump. Her blood sugar levels are monitored around the clock. I don’t know about you, but if my child had Celiac Disease and Type 1 Diabetes, I’d be tempted to enclose her in a perma-bubble. But the Santoras know their daughter as “tough, sporty girl who loves to play ice hockey, and who has been on a team since she was two.”
That tough, sporty girl has been through a lot in her short life, and when asked if she had one wish, it was this: To meet hockey superstar and Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin. And meet him, she did. Thanks to Kids Wish Network (…where dreams really do come true).
Lauren and her family came to Washington, DC last week from their home in Norwalk, Connecticut, where the Kids Wish Network put them up at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
Kids Wish Network made Lauren Santora’s dream come true, and we helped. US Sedan Service provided complimentary transportation for the Santora family as they spent a celebratory weekend in our nation’s capital.
Unhindered by her chronic illness, Lauren suited up in her very own, personalized Capitals jersey, and hit the ice with Ovechkin and his hockey brethren for a practice she’s not soon to forget.
“That was really fun,” said Lauren Santora.Nov - 27 - 2014 0 Comment Categories Uncategorized Tags giving backsedan servicesupport our troopswounded warrior
I was commissioned in ’91. And I was branched into the Nuclear Biological Chemical Corps, because at the time the Gulf War was going on and they needed chemical officers. So I did that for a short while, and then I was able to secondary branch into Public Affairs, which is how I fulfilled the rest of my time in the service.
The date was September 17, 2001.
And it was on that day that Army Captain Leslie Smith boarded a plane bound for Bosnia.
It was not a safe place, per se, but we were there to help the local people rebuild their towns, and the schools, and the communities. To help them get back up on their feet after all the devastation.
Ask her, and she’ll tell you: “I had the best of both worlds.” As Captain Smith served her country and the Army, she was granted the unique privilege of working hand-in-hand with the Bosnian locals toward a common goal. This tour of duty was so rewarding that when it came time to think about going home, she chose to stay.
But a second tour was not to be.
About two weeks before the end of [my] first tour, I developed a blood clot in my left leg. I thought I had pulled a muscle or something, but when I went to the clinic, they did an ultrasound, and they said ‘blood clot’. More or less, I had to leave. There was no other option.
It was extremely devastating.
Captain Smith packed only what she could carry, and upon her arrival home was immediately admitted to Walter Reed Army Medical Center where she soon fell gravely ill. Her family was called to say goodbye, and Smith was given but 24 hours to live. Despite her apparent “imminent death status,” the doctors didn’t give up, and neither did she.
They tried one last ditch effort, a medicine that very slowly started to turn things around. My body had started to produce thousands of clots. And it was just clotting off everything, killing off tissue and shutting my system down. So this medicine slowly started to reverse everything, but the damage was done. I had my left leg amputated right below the knee.
And I can remember going through the questions of: What do I do know? How can I ever be normal? Why me? How did this happen?
The doctors were mystified. Even more so when Captain Smith lost the vision in her left eye a few years later, and then the right a few years after that. Eventually, after a transfer to Johns Hopkins, Smith’s physicians determined that she was “exposed to some sort of chemical agent or a toxin.” What kind of chemical agent or toxin is anyone’s educated guess, but nevertheless the damage was done. The bright, stubborn Captain Leslie Smith had lost her leg, and was now legally blind.
Captain Smith is home, has a service dog she calls Isaac, and is intent on resuming a new normal life — with gusto. She wants to go shopping, and to have her hair done, and to have Isaac groomed. But one grows weary of depending on the kindness of friends and neighbors, people who have their own lives and their own schedules.
I came to get involved with [US Sedan Service] through the Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon. They’re based out of New Jersey, and I actually got involved with their organization while trying to help another veteran, and in talking, I mentioned something about driving, and the challenges that come along with relying on neighbors.
[The relationship with US Sedan] has been amazing, in that I no longer have to worry about how I’m going to get to the store, or to get my hair cut. When something comes up, I no longer have to think, ‘Okay, how am I going to make this work?’
I already know it will work, and it just alleviates all the stress.
