Good for him. If he can afford it, great. Welcome to America. Make yourself a couple billion, and you too can buy a jumbo jet.

He could have sold the 727 and not replaced it, and expanded the jobless pilot pool.

Instead some pilots have employment.

I see no negatives in this.

A BBJ should be pretty similar in size to a 727-100, maybe a little bigger.

I ran into a guy I used to fly cargo with in 727's at Jet Aviation in PBI and he was flying for Trump.

I could just see him bringing the pilots into the board room and letting them bicker back and forth at each other using every cliche catch phrase known to man.

Then after they will go to commercial.... Trump will say, "You're Fired!"

Larry was in charge of catering

Larry, can you explain how this fell thru the cracks? The turkey meat request?

First, Dave told me he was in contact with the catering people. So I don't know where he gets off blaming me. Second, I was busy trying to pick up that FBO chick.

Dave, what do you have to say?

etc etc ad nauseum

Too bad Trump continues to live the American Dream, yet decides that registering his planes in a foreign country is better.

Too bad DOT, FAA and TSA won't allow a private owner to have a large aircraft on part 91 anymore... don't blame Trump (or others) a bit.

Hard to live that dream when the USG is stepping on your throat.

and how would registering it in this country enhance the dream? create some paper pusher jobs at FAA I suppose?

you realize like 60% of Fortune 500 companies have registrations in Delaware and in off-shore locations, for tax advantages?

the American Dream means that the free market is entitled to whatever they are smart enough to legally take advantage of.

enough
VP - something creates some veil of ownership and may be giving the principal less exposure to enter airports without scrutiny.
Ask the (used to be) big three automakers, banks, "fill in an industry trying to hide".

Incognito is not that bad ....

Here is the "American Dream" success story.

1. Start out with $40 Million of family money (Dad's, 1980's dollar value too)

2. Now start building stuff, but before you do, hire a staff of soulless, shark attorneys.

3. Once your legions of contractors are 75%+ completed with the job, tell them you're "not satisfied" with the work, and you're not going to pay.

4. Once your contractors, mostly small companies operating on thin margins without legal teams, start complaining, turn your legal team loose on them and give them a choice, settle for 25-50 cents on the dollar or try to win in court after 5-10 years. Of course, that won't include their legal fees. They of course settle, with a non-disclosure clause of course.

5. Finish your construction, pat yourself on back for getting the job done at 75% of the cost that everyone does, resell building, pocket cash, then sell some books as to how smart you are.


The track records there. I've heard the same story from people in the business, or know those who are from NYC, ACY and PBI. It's always the same story. Any huge contractor, none who fly a junk B727 around, would nail this clown to a wall in a NY second if they had the same crap tried on them.

Look up the little old craftsman in the PBI paper. Little old guy was contracted for a $30K chandelier (sp). As usual, he says, "I'm unhappy" He offers the guy $13K to settle. Old man fights, but finally gives in, says "what am I going to do, go to court for 10 years, I'll be dead before then". Of course, chandelier stayed up.

Heard the "Ex" pulled the same crap after having some pavers done.

Thanks for saving me the trouble. This guy is not exactly the self-made man.

Heard that he would find a fingerprint on the "gold-plate" somewhere in the 727 and just go bananas......

Good call. Trump is great at selling himself being a bully.

Any rumors on what he might be buying? My bet is a wingletted, geriatric (but renovated) 737-100 with gold-plated toilets. Nice red "T" on the tail. Very tacky...
