Travelling with Kids?
With February school vacation and spring break rapidly approaching, now is the time to start thinking about the family vacation. As you and your adult companions enjoy cruising to your destination without the hassles of the commercial airports, take time to remember what it was like to travel as a child. Hours of limited personal space with little to do conspire to turn even the most well behaved child into a whining, discontent, fidgeter.

So for this travel season be sure to think of the little ones. Most private aircraft are now equipped with lavish entertainment systems ranging from private in-seat monitors found aboard light jets such as the Beechjet 400 or Hawker 400XP to massive flat panel displays on the larger jets such as the Gulfstream 400/500 and Global Express. Many aircraft even allow you to connect your child’s own gaming system to the on-board monitors.
Additionally, while you may enjoy a nice grilled Parmesan Encrusted Portobello Mushroom with White Truffle Oil, the kids will most likely just want some PB&J. Fresh baked cookies and some sandwiches will do wonders to keep the blood-sugar up and the tempers down.

But, whether jetting off to Spring Training in Florida or winging your way to the ski slopes of Colorado be sure to give the kids headphones so you can enjoy a blissful beginning and end to your vacation.
