OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 30 Remember that catchy Southwest Airlines slo- gan we all loved in the '80s, "The Company Plane"? When the web address of the same name became available a few years back, a local jet charter captain bought it. He claims he had no clue what he'd do with it, only that it came with a his- tory and responsibility. In the years that followed, and as he found himself help- ing more and more friends and family members book charter fl ights, it dawned on him that there was a bigger need to advise individuals and companies on the sometimes daunting task of fi nding safe, effi cient jet charters. Also absent in the market was quality communication between aviation companies and those in the back of the plane. When he's not demanding that we stay in budgets or approving a major ad contract (both of which he still does, though often these days, while on the road), PaperCity president Jim Kastleman is also captain on a fl eet of Lear 60s. Now, as editor of, he not only brings the perspective of a qualifi ed, safety-obsessed Airline Transport Pilot, but that of a luxury lifestyle journalist. Want to know in which private air ter- minal to park your jet in Santa Barbara or Cabo? How about an explanation as to why you sometimes can't fl y on a jet nonstop back from Aspen? TheCom- provides answers. Ulti- mately, if reading an article or looking at a pretty picture motivates you to get airborne, they've assembled a team who can fi nd and book the perfectly curated, FAA-blessed fl ight. We had no clue how accessible it could be. Jim, can we catch a ride?
