What do air-show legend R.A. "Bob" Hoover and former NASA astronaut Eugene Cernan have in common? If you answered that they are co-founders of a new corporate-jet buying service known as Jet Fleet International (JFI), you win a free subscription to AVweb. The JFI mission is to bring the same high-volume purchasing power enjoyed by the airlines to the business jet fleet by banding them together under one program. According to JFI, the program allows "members to fully benefit from savings on repair and maintenance programs, safety evaluation programs, pilot simulator training, fuel and weather data," among other products and services. Presently, JFI says it has alliances with CAE SimuFlite, Jeppesen, Breitling, Teledyne Controls and various contract fuel programs. Check the JFI Web site to learn more.
