Leavin’ On A Jet Plane

There are many reasons why I am proud to work for my employer. They are truly a company that not only talks the talk, but they walk the walk. And with a little extra style I might add. Our executive leadership strongly supports growth of employees with training and development opportunities for all positions on a regular basis, similar to the Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician training I received back in May.

This latest opportunity was a little surreal, yet completely believable given certain circumstances. I got to ride in the company’s private jet.

I know it sounds crazy, but When the Exton (PA) office was relocated to Atlanta, the corporate private shuttle had a new route added between the two cities. There were a number of people flying back an forth between the two on a weekly basis and it made sense as a cost saving option. Sounds kind of funny saying a corporate jet can actually save money, but it does. It eliminates high priced tickets when there is minimal advance notice. Employees spend less time in transit given the elimination of long security lines and wait times in airports. I just happen to luck out last week and have a customer meeting planned for Wednesday and took advantage of the flight schedule.

I was all geeked out and if you know me, you know I alreay had my camera out and announcing to the crew that I had a blog and I SO needed to blog about this!

I felt like I was boarding the plane with the members of my team to go profile some serial killer in a faroff city like they do on one of my favorite shows Criminal Minds. Yeah, that’s my flash reflection in the back mirror. There is even a mini bathroom on the plane, but even I have my picture taking limits.

You can see the cockpit and all the controls.

The work space was really great and I was able to work a little on the plane.

What do you think? ROCK STAR? DIVA?
I think I wear the private jet look well, dont’ you?

What was your latest adventure you found yourself so giddy you were geeking out and taking pictures?
