Ken Dichter is a co-founder of US-based Wheels Up. This company operates something of a unique business. It is a subscription-based private aviation solution and a very useful option for people who want private flight options. Mr. Dichter pointed out in a recent interview he did on CNBC that their business could be arguably more recession-proof than other private flight options.
We spent a few minutes with Mr. Dichter asking about the business and their focus on the Beechcraft King Air 350i. He’s a big fan of this aircraft. He thinks they could eventually use 1,000 of them. Which is rather eye-popping and no doubt delightful news to Textron.
