The Look of Business Aviation
When Directors consider optics- they should focus on financial measures- offers Jack Olcott. According to research conducted by Nexa Advisors- LLC for the No Plane No Gain advocacy program of the National Business Aviation Association and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association- companies included within the Standard & Poors 500 that use Business Aviation outperformed non-users in several important financial measures during the period 2003 to 2007.

Business Aviation users’ average annual revenue growth on a market cap-weighted basis was 116 percent higher than non-users’- and average earnings growth was 434 percent higher. Users posted a 252 percent higher stock and dividend growth than non-users- and total share-price growth was 156 percent higher.

Data generated by Arthur Andersen in the mid-1990s for NBAA also show similar results. As depicted below- 92 percent of the companies on Fortune magazine’s list of the 50 public firms with the highest total returns to investors over the 10- year period between 1982 and 1992 were users of Business Aviation.

For decades- companies that provide efficient and effective transportation to their employees via the use of business aircraft are the high performers that stockholders want to own. Whether it is optics or reality that interests Board Members- Business Aviation is the look of a well-managed company.
