Corporate Aviation

Magazine articles Grant McLaren has written since 1984 include business aviation profiles for Professional Pilot and Rolls-Royce.

These works provide a glimpse inside the often-hidden world of corporate and private aviation. Profiles over the years have ranged from Vanna White's duet of charter Lear 35s and Larry Flynt's black and gold Gulfstream II operation to His Majesty the Sultan of Johor's Gulfstream IV, Agusta 109 and Lake Renegade flight department which support Royal Palace activities in Malaysia's southernmost province.


More conventional flight department profiles include insights into the bizjet applications of Nike Inc Founder & CEO Phil Knight, Occidental Petroleum's Founder Armand Hammer, Freeport McMoran Chairman & CEO James Moffett, Golden Bear Inc CEO Jack Nicklaus, Southeast Asian businessman Tan Sri Ting and Pfizer Inc Chairman & CEO William Steere Jr.

Business jets can be extraordinarily valuable tools in multiplying the effectiveness, and reach, of any individual or corporation.  From the Midwest-based chicken rancher trying to broaden a sales territory, to the TV evangelist looking to drum up more business to the largest of global corporations - they've all benefited and prospered through effective deployment of airborne assets.
