NBAA challenges Wall Street Journal

NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen last week challenged a “one-sided view of business aviation” put forward in a front-page story by The Wall Street Journal.

In a statement sent to the newspaper and made available through social networking web sites like Twitter, Bolen said the story “greatly mischaracterized business aviation and did a disservice to tens of thousands of American companies of all sizes that rely on business aircraft to succeed, especially in these tough economic times.” Although Bolen had an extensive interview with the Journal reporter before the story was filed, none of his comments appeared in the article, he said.
