Larger companies are driving the economic recovery and don’t feel the same way, so they are moving back into the jet market. It’s tough on those who want to sell a used Cessna Mustang or similar light jet. It was so tough on Cessna that top execs closed the door on bargain hunters who were asking for unprofitable sales prices. Small jets aren’t heading for the sunset, just waiting for small businesses to find confidence in the economy. Whyte suggests we all buy something from a small business.
