This book is an introductory text for procuring a corporate aircraft and setting up a corporate flight department. The authors are distinguished in their field, but knowing a lot does not necessarily mean that they are gifted writers. The book is very dull, even more than an average textbook, and is fairly amateurish in overall presentation. The specifics are quite dated (particularly in the aircraft specific selection area), but most important principles are discussed, although frequently only in a cursory manner.

The book covers aircraft needs, key missions, evaluation parameters, technical analysis (which is one of the weaker sections), fleet size, financial alternatives and analysis (even though more options now exist than when the book was written), and acquisition planning.

The book is very general, and the combination of large margins, large font, and many black and white illustrations means that you can comfortably read this book in one dedicated day. The material presented is good, it just isn't especially detailed. Certainly someone wanting to know the intricacies of financial analysis for corporate aviation will need additional references, as will people who want to learn to evaluate different corporate aircraft for potential purchase or lease.

I think the book rates three stars: the material is general, but overall fairly good, but the production values leave something to be desired, as does the currency and completeness of the text.
