In addition to its fleet of silver bullet Bombardier Globals with distinctive red cheat lines that can be seen at airports from New York, London, and Geneva to Aspen, Bali, and countries whose capitals you probably can’t name for, say $21,6 million, VistaJet is known for its unabashed approach to the ultra-high net worth lifestyle and innovative marketing programs.
