Private Jets

See inside Donald Trump’s amazing gold plated private Boeing passenger jet

The plane has room for 43 passengers and can fly at speeds of more than 500mph,This is the amazing passenger jet that Donald Trump hopes will fly him to the White House.
The outspoken businessman will be jetting across the United States as his campaign to become President kicks into gear.
While politicians in the UK often have to jump in campaign buses or grab a train, Donald Trump will be whisked around in complete luxury.
Having bought the Boeing 757-200 in 2011, Trump has seemingly splashed out a small fortune on kitting the jet out in with the latest technology and finest decor.
With a top speed of more than 500mph and room for 43 passengers, the jet is sure to be put to good use when the billionaire hits the campaign trails.
Powered by Rolls Royce engines, ‘Trump Force One’ has 24-carat gold plated seat belts “as well as everything else”.
In his bedroom, Trump has fin wood panelling, “yards and yards of elegant silk” and pillows embroidered with his family crest.
The video lounge has a 57-inch screen and sound system similar to a “top Hollywood screening room”.
While his campaign for the oval office appears to be grounded, the same cannot be said for Trump’s travel plans.

Airbus A380 Farnborough 2012


US$72 billion of confirmed orders and commitments by airlines, leasing companies and manufacturers

At the end of a busy trade week, orders and commitments announced at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow have been confirmed at US$72 covering a total of 758 aircraft. The figures represent a 53% increase on the 2010 show and close to the 2008 figure when sales peaked at US$88billion. To add further weight to the shows success, 20% of exhibitors have already rebooked for the 2014 show.

 Airshow organisers, Farnborough International Ltd, can also confirm that over the five days of the show, the event attracted just over 107,000 trade visitors and over 1500 exhibitors with representation right across the supply chain. Over 70 military delegations from 46 countries attended with a further 13 delegations from the civil sector.  This event saw good engagement from decision-makers with the Prime Minister opening the show, a further 6 Cabinet members making keynote speeches, as well as senior ministers visiting from the UK and overseas.

Over 140 aircraft took part in the static and flying displays at the Farnborough Aerodrome in Hampshire including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner which flew on the first three days of the show – a Boeing and FIA first – and the Airbus A380 in attendance for the full seven days. Flying display highlights included the Bell Boeing V22 Osprey, a Saab Gripen Fighter and the Korean T50 jet trainer.

HondaJet, Advanced Private Jets of Luxury

HondaJets provide advanced private jets of luxury that are lightweight business aircraft offering an extra large cabin, high cruising speed and high fuel efficiency.

It is a luxury private jet and can achieve such a high performance thanks to an over the wing engine mount configuration. A natural laminar flow wind and flow fuselage nose was developed after extensive analysis and wind tunnel tests. The wind of the luxury jet is metal and has an integral machined skin which gives it a smooth upper surface needed for the natural laminar flow. The fuselage is designed entirely of composites with stiffened panels along with sandwich panels which reduce weight and cost.

The prototype of this private jet was designed and manufactured in the USA. It has undergone tests including structural proof tests, control system, system functions and ground vibration which it passed with flying colors. The first flight of the private jet took place in 2003.


NBAA2011 an Outstanding Success for the Aviation industry

NBAA’s 64th Annual Meeting & Convention (NBAA2011) closed it’s doors on October 12, a three-day outstanding event in Las Vegas featured exhibits at the Las Vegas Convention Center and a Static Display of Aircraft on Henderson Executive Airport with over 100 Education Sessions and Maintenance and Operations Sessions (M&Os) and over 26,000 business aviation professionals who are interested in seeing and learning about all that is new in the world of business aviation.

National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen thanked Exhibitors and Attendees for what he called “a highly successful show.”

“What we are seeing is that the show is providing real value to the business aviation community, even in these challenging economic times,” Bolen said. “It’s clear that the Convention continues to be a must-attend event for anyone whose passion or profession involves business aviation.”

To illustrate his point, Bolen noted that:

  • The show closed with 26,077 people in attendance, a 7 percent jump in attendance over that for last year’s Convention;
  • The number of Exhibitors at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) was 1,106, a 2 percent increase over last year’s Exhibitor count of 1,086;
  • A total of 101 aircraft were displayed this year, including 85 at the sold-out Static Display of Aircraft at Henderson Executive Airport (HND), five more inside the Las Vegas Convention Center and 11 additional aircraft at the first-ever Outdoor Static Display adjacent to the LVCC.

“By every key measure, this year’s Convention met or exceeded NBAA’s expectations,” Bolen said. “Equally important, the level of enthusiasm we’ve seen from show participants tells us that their expectations were met or exceeded as well.”

Top 10 Luxury Hotel Suites & Villas on Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas Strip : USA and not only, absolute Playground

It’s officially known as Las Vegas Boulevard, but in reality it’s a strip of glitz and glam of unrivalled proportions. To say it’s over the top might be an understatement. The Strip is the main drag of gambling U.S.A. and home to most of the top Hotels, casinos and nightclubs Las Vegas style! A stroll down the Strip at night is a blaze of blinking lights and a sea of humanity making its way to that winning slot machine. Night time is also the most comfortable time of day to be outdoors in the Las Vegas heat zone, so take your stroll under the stars and bask in the glow.

What really took me aback about Las Vegas is that it’s a lot more than casinomania.  The town most of the time buzzes with high-tech conventioneers (Couture show and JCK presented in this issue), weekending couples and families out for a little fun in the desert sun, not to mention people searching for pleasure in the capital of sin.

Great! the next question arises; where to stay?


‘‘F’’” Luxury World – Luxury Travel Services selects for you the top 10 Hotel Suites & Villas for an unforgettable Las Vegas trip. Enjoy !

Goodwood Revival 2011

A day at the Goodwood Revival, a great day with lots to do. A must visit event at least once in a lifetime. Brings beautiful memories for the older and gives the taste of 50 and 60s. A spectacular day in Britain at it’s best.

Gulfstream IV

Picture of Gulfstream IV-SP (G-IV)As the fourth installation in the Gulfstream family line, the GIV offers new advancements that the former aircraft lacked. One of the most significant improvements is the change of engines from the Rolls-Royce Spey to the Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 611-8, used in later jets including the G300 and 400. The successful intercontinental-range business jet has been a prototype for later Gulfstream models.
Two Rolls-Royce Mk 611-8 engines provide 13,850 lbs of thrust each. Inspection interval is 8,000 hours. The Roll-Royce upgraded engine is responsible for 15% improved fuel consumption and decreased noise levels.
The GIV is the first in the Gulfstream family to employ Goodyear Aerospace’s brake-by-wire system and a Dowty fail-passive steer-by-wire system, making pilot maneuverability easier. The GIV’s takeoff weight is 2,000 additional pounds than its predecessor, at 72,300 pounds. Hot-and-high performance is also improved. The GIV has a high speed cruise of 480 ktas.
Compared to the GIII, the GIV has gained 4.5 feet in usable interior space but maintains Gulfstream’s famous stand-up cabin. The cabin has a length of 45.1 feet, width of 7.3 feet, and height of 6.1 feet. Up to 19 passengers can be accommodated in the GIV comfortably. Amenities include a large galley and full-sized lavatory, including a shower.
