Our feature article this time round covers Omar Halawani, the new President & CEO of Nexus and his plans for 2016. John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery and an enthusiastic G3 owner and pilot is our high net worth interview.
However, the top business aviation story of 2015, undoubtedly, has to be Flexjet’s order for 20 of Aerion’s yet-to-be built AS2 supersonic jets.

Definitely one to watch.
