Not Fake News: The New York Times highlights the truth about private jets

Many times mainstream media coverage of business aviation focuses on scoundrels and outlaws

Find a story about Jeffrey Epstein that doesn’t mention he has a private jet or flies by private jet and I will give you a buck. Earlier this year, The Washington Post profiled Elon Musk, tracking his private flights. In one example, it used the fact that his jet would drop him off at one airport and pick him up at another, closer to where he ended his day, as a sign of excess instead of efficiency.

From my perspective, very good journalists often use private jets as evidence that somehow supports unflattering and sometimes illegal behavior. In some cases private jets do, but not in a different way than others use their car to get from place to place.

For the most part, most reporting on private jets ignores the real reasons those that can afford them, use them.
