Netjets Volume 4 2018


ON THE PULSE Raising Standards ENHANCED CREW TRAINING HAS MADE LUGANO AIRPORT MORE APPROACHABLE The extent to which NetJets strives to improve its service and give access to some of the more remote airports around the world is well demonstrated by developments at Lugano in southern Switzerland, near the border with Italy. A weather sensitive airport, Lugano is located in a deep Alpine valley, and as such can have issues with visibility and troublesome conditions. To ensure maximum accessibility at night and during poor weather – while maintaining the absolute highest safety standards – NetJets takes a two-pronged approach: the best aircraft available and crew with intimate knowledge of the airport and its unique difficulties. The Embraer Phenom 300 is deemed the ideal jet, with a crew trained by NetJets to reach an enhanced level – “Qualification B” – allowing them to access the airport at the most awkward times. For example, a crew with “Qualification A” can only operate during the day at Lugano and with limited cloud ceiling and visibility criteria, whereas “Qualification B” crew can take off day and night with zero ceiling limitation and visibility right down to 400m from the preferred runway (to put that into context, “A” crew are restricted to visibility of 3,000m). And there are similar advantages on landing as well. With 20 crew members trained to “Qualification B” level, access to Lugano and the beautiful area that surrounds it has been considerably improved over the past winter season with the aim that all of the pilots of the NetJets Phenom fleet will be fully trained by next year.

Man behind the wine Master Sommelier Ronan Sayburn 2016 Toscana Bianco, Villa Antinori Made by the historic Antinori family – who can trace their lineage back to 1385 – primarily from traditional Tuscan grape varieties, especially trebbiano and malvasia, with a small addition of chardonnay and pinot bianco. A straw yellow with greenish highlights in colour, the wine shows elegant and subtle white floral aromas with notes of citrus fruit and ripe pears. The impeccable taste is balanced with a fine persistence on the mineral-laced finish. 2016 Sancerre La Croix du Roy, Lucien Crochet An outstanding, textbook sancerre from Lucien Crochet, a producer renowned for his excellent Loire valley wines created in the town of Bué. La Croix Du Roy is one of his best, a classy sauvignon blanc showing bright gooseberry and lime fruit, delightful herbal tones and fresh crisp acidity. This is precisely what a great sancerre should be taste like. 2015 Chablis Vau de Vey, Jean-Marc Brocard The Premier Cru Vau de Vey vines are located on an east-facing slope overlooking the Serein river and the town of Chablis. Bedrock rich in ancient marine fossils form the limestone soils that give Chablis its marked minerality. These wines are clean and bright in acidity, but ageing on the lees gives texture and richness to this classic style of un-oaked chardonnay. 2015 Founder’s Block Cabernet, Katnook Estate This is a deeply coloured and deeply flavoured wine, coming from Coonawarra in Australia. An intense nose of blackcurrant and red fruits with lifted mint characters. The small amount of oak maturation lends deft notes of toast and sweet spice to the fruit aromas. The well-structured palate expresses sweet berry fruit and light oak flavours. Ripe dark berries, plum and dusty mulberry characters abound with a hint of regional mint highlighting the lush palate flavours. Fine grained soft tannins add to the attractive lingering fruit. 2015 Châteauneuf-du- Pape, Domaine de la Janasse The historic blended wines of the Southern Rhône valley, close to the Mediterranean, are epitomised by those of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Comprised mainly of grenache with syrah and a touch of mourvèdre; this wine is rich and generous with red and black berry fruit, pepper spice and a warming finish. 2015 Chianti Classico, Castello di Ama Castello di Ama is located about 20 kilometres northeast of Siena in the hills of Gaiole. This is the heart of Tuscany, a rolling, bucolic landscape of woods, vineyards and olive groves. Made mainly with sangiovese from the heart, or classico, region of Chianti. This wine is elegant and refined with sour cherry and dried thyme flavours, a tart cranberry-like acidity and firm tannins. 24,613,192 NAUTICAL MILES COVERED TOTAL CHILDREN FLOWN 727 6,824 DESTINATIONS 55 COUNTRIES SERVED BY THE BOMBARDIER GLOBAL 6000, THE MOST BY ANY IN THE NETJETS EUROPE FLEET 13,193 LIMOUSINES REQUESTED NUMBER OF PETS FLOWN 2,356 29 NETJETS
