Re: Qatar Executive Flight question

One of the main differences between DPJ and Qatar Executive is that DPJ's fleet consists mostly, if not entirely, of managed aircraft on behalf of their owners. QQE's fleet is wholly owned by the parent company. In that sense, QQE is closer to Vistajet. While Delta does offer availability to their h...

Re: Baron 58's as Freighters?

I flew an old 58 several years ago, it's still used on a combination of courier services and on-demand. Loved it, with 500 or 600 pounds of freight it was still a rocket, would love to fly a new one. There's a 135 outfit that still flies 55s and 58s out of Dallas.
