The Private Jet Dilemma

The Weekend Australian Business Section, reporting that there is now a two year wait for people wishing to buy a new private jet!

The Australian private jet fleet has grown to 223 in the last year, and it would have grown more if not for supply issues and huge demand in Northern America.

Life just gets tougher in ScoMo land.

Don't feel too bad. Us mere mortals have our own problems. The lead time for an quick-build RV kit is now out beyond 18 months too. Even the basic tail kit is 9 months for most models!

Is our PM now ruling the world? The shortage/demand is world wide, all due to covids disruption to airline travel, companys are going to aircraft ownership to ensure travel availability.

You poke our biggest trading partner in the eye with a pointy stick and they will retaliate. All in the name of sucking up to the Poms and Yanks, who still deal with China and have filled the gaps left from Australian produce not going to China.

Add France to the list thanks to Scotty’s dismal demonstration of political leadership!

I certainly know who I WON’T be voting for in a month or so.

Time to get out of the Lodge Scotty!

No interest in Dick Pulots using this forum for pointless garbage.

How did you segue to a political statement? Would Albo be able to get jets from America? Could he source the missing supplies? Oh, you're right, he couldn't.

How can a Prime Minister lie to other countries such as France. Disgraceful.

Seems that the Russians also have a problem with the French.
