Magellan Jets would like to thank everyone who came out last night to support The Josh Beckett Foundation at the 2010 Beckett Bowl. It was a fun night full of excitement and prizes (and a little bit of bowling too). We would like to personally congratulate the winner of The Ultimate Private Jet Experience in the live auction, provided by Magellan Jets. The winner will be whisked away in a luxurious private jet to New York and experience the Red Sox vs. Yankees rivalry from Josh Beckett’s personal seats. The Josh Beckett Foundation was able to raise well over $500,000 last night with the help and support of everyone who came out, with all proceeds benefitting Children’s Hospital Boston. Make sure to visit
The Josh Beckett Foundation to read about the foundation, the event, the children, and to make additional contributions. Make sure to also visit Magellanjets.com/blog to stay updated on private jet news, events, and special offers!
Less than 24 hours ago, Kanye West joined Twitter and already has over 200,000 followers. Kanye definitely knows one thing and that is rolling in style. In a recent series of tweets and pictures, Kanye talks about a private jet he boarded yesterday evening. But, whats up with the “BABYMAMAJET”? Check out the series of tweets:

Somebody needs to tell Kanye to start flying on “SUPERDADDYJETS”, like the Global Express or BBJ.
Jaunted.com was quick to make fun of Kanye’s misspelling and slang terms in his tweets claiming college dropout or not, Kanye should still know how to spell “stewardess” (even though the correct terminology is “flight attendant”). Be sure to follow Kanye @ kanyewest and don’t forget to follow Magellan Jets @ FlyMagellanJets.
What kind of Honda do you own? Is it a new HondaJet. Yes Honda has been getting buzz from aviation specialists, media, and other enthusiasts about their first ever aircraft. Possibly the most innovative and technologically advanced private plane ever constructed will be hitting the market as soon as the third quarter of 2012 with a $4.5 million dollar price tag. The HondaJet is taking a leap forward in aviation design with engines mounted above the wing, a composite fuelage, a leather interior, and “
unique lavatory features” in chrome and blue. Honda says the cutting edge fuselage design reduces drag, cuts noise pollution on the ground, and improves space in the cabin. Expect to see this aircraft joining the ranks of the Embraer Phenom and Eclipse 500 in the Very Light Jet category soon!
Sidney Crosby is one of the best players in the NHL and recently pulled a Happy Gilmore. The Pittsburgh Penguins star took a private jet into Hamilton Airport in Ancaster, Ontario yesterday to attend a private golf function. The event was held at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada and carried a $2,000 per golfer price tag. The outing was sponsored by Tim Horton’s charitable foundation and was so exclusive that even members of the club weren’t permitted. PGA Tour pros Graham Delaet and Blake Adams also attended to show their support. Golf is a great sport and people fly all around the world to play. Whether you are playing at Bethpage Black in Long Island, Pebble Beach in California, or the Old Course at St. Andrews, Magellan Jets can help create the ultimate golf trip with a private jet, car services, and even tee times!

Director Peter Jackson recently acquired a new Gulfstream G550 for an estimated price of $68 million. The private jet is one of the nicest jets on the market and can fly from New Zealand to Los Angeles non-stop. Jackson previously had a Gulfstream IV but was plagued with too many fuel stops, so he decided to trade up. The G550 can accommodate up to 16 passengers. Some of the seats can even be converted to beds, although those may require some pajamas. Jackson is a vintage aircraft collector and owns 29 World War I aircraft, some original and some replicas. Although we don’t charter vintage planes, Magellan Jets does have the capability of accommodating customers who would like large Gulfstream jets just like Mr. Jackson’s, all with the highest levels of safety and comfort and for far less cost than owning your own.

Recently, President Obama’s dog, Bo, traveled to Maine on his own private jet. The Obama’s love their dog so much that they wanted to ensure his safety and comfort while traveling to Maine. Pet friendly hotels and vacation rentals have seen growing demand but transporting your pet to your desired destination has caused some trouble and aggravation. If you choose to fly commercial with your pet, the entire process can be extremely traumatic for them. Most commercial airline companies require your animal to stay inside a crate and be placed with the luggage if they exceed a 20lb weight limit. With a private jet charter, your little (or big!) friend can be by your side at all times with no hassle. Pets are able to travel onboard the aircraft while being relaxed, stable, and in complete luxury. Perhaps the biggest bonus to it all is that you know where your pet is at all times. Magellan has had many clients travel with their pets, so we’re pros at the in’s and out’s of the process. We’re always happy to help make the experience exceptional for you and your furry (or feathery or scaley) friend!

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, weighed in on his social network, hating interviews, privacy, private jets, and an upcoming movie trailer. Recently Facebook just hit its 500 millionth user marking an impressive record. In an exclusive interview with ABC World News reporter Diane Sawyer, viewers got a chance to witness an inside looks into Zuckerberg’s personal life. During the interview Zuckerberg talked about Forbes’ claim that he was a billionaire, refuting it on the grounds that his company is still privately held. Speculation of Zuckerberg wanting to own a private jet remains popular. Zuckerberg makes it clear, however, that the rumors are false. What billionaire does not want to own a private jet? The smart ones. Unless you’re flying 400 hours a year or more on your very own jet, it is a waste of money! Being affluent has its perks, and flying private is definitely one of them. Magellan Jets allows individuals to get all the benefits of owning an aircraft and more, without a $50 Million asset to worry about!

John Travolta has been a fan of private aviation for some time. He currently owns a Gulfstream II and Boeing 707 that are both able to taxi right up to two buildings connected to his house. People may have seen Travolta flaunt his private jet on “MTV Cribs” a few years ago. What you may not have known is that his $2.5 million home features a jetway for him to have direct access to his private airliner without even going outside. The 6,400 square foot house is located in Ocala, Florida and is in the exclusive fly-in community of Jumbolair. Of course Magellan can provide any size aircraft, although customers are on their own to get them to the front door!

Macau's top gambler, Stanley Ho, recently sent his private jet to Singapore to buy durian fruit. Durians are widely known and referred to as the “king of fruits” for their large size, unique odor, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The China Press reported that Mr. Ho sent his shopping representatives via private jet to buy the football-sized fruits which can’t be brought aboard airline flights. They purchased 88 durians, valued at 2,065 Singapore dollars (1,505 US dollars). Seems like Mr. Ho really enjoys his fruit and is even willing to take dramatic measures to acquire a favorite food.

Recently we blogged about, Colton Harris-Moore, and early Sunday morning he was aressted on the Bahamian Island of Eleuthera. Harris-More is suspected of flying a stolen plane to the Bahamas and was found just off the Abaco Island. Colton had stolen a 2009 Cessna 400 Corvalis and an emergency locator was used to track his whereabouts. Seems like a cold-hearted ending for a teen fugitive who has been on the run for almost two years. 20th Century Fox has recently purchased the rights for a film based on this celebrity teen fugitive. If Colton didnt get caught, he could still be flying private jets right now. Check out the link below to learn more: http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/07/11/bahamas.barefoot.bandit/index.html
Anybody catch the latest episode of the hit HBO series, Entourage, last night? If not, you missed a cameo appearance by Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) was in the talks with Mr. Jones to help represent the NFL and their TV rights. Jerry was seen boarding his Private Jet during the episode which sparked some excitement for fans. Jerry is no stranger to private aviation with a net worth way over a billion dollars. Check out his exclusive HBO appearance below:
Anna Chapman, born February 23, 1982 is an alleged Russian Spy who has been working for the Illegals Program under the SVR, Russian Intelligence. Anna has been called a “Modern Day Bond Girl”, due to her good looks, red hair and green eyes. It seems like her Russian Spy role came out of a recent espionage movie. It has been reported that this Russian Spy has recently worked for NetJets, formerly the largest executive jet aviation company in the world.
According to Anna and her social network pages like LinkedIn, her resume states that she was involved in selling private jets to Russian clients and other high end individuals. The high-end interaction that Anna claims to have had with wealthy clients may involve serious private information. It has not yet been reported if Anna has stolen any information from NetJets and relayed it back to Russia Authorities. Who really knows if NetJets’ clients are at risk? No one wants important and personal information to be in the hands of a Russian Spy.
Anna has claimed to have been working for NetJets at a senior executive level. In fact she worked as an executive assistant to the sales team and only for a few months. Whether it is one day, a few months, or a year, Anna still may have had access to important NetJets information. Chapman plead guilty to the charge of conspiracy and has been deported back to Russia.
A 19 year-old fugitive is wanted by the FBI in the Bahamas. Colton Harris-Moore is a teenage thief who has been taunting police for over two years now. Colton has been committing burglaries and possible theft of boats, airplanes, and luxury cars. Recently he has been spotted in the Bahamas and the US embassy has issued a $10,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest. The owner of a stolen plane was contacted by the Coast Guard that his plane has been sending emergency signals off the coast of the Bahamas. Colton was the prime suspect and he was nowhere to be found when the plane crashed. Sounds like Catch Me If You Can, a 2002 film starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. If the owner of the plane used Magellan Jets, he wouldn’t have to worry about theft related issues.

An idea that we have all dreamed about and seen in movies may actually be coming to reality. Beginning next year, cars will finally have wings. Terrafugia, based in Woburn, Mass., plans to deliver its car-plane by the end of 2011. The company has been working with the FAA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to meet all vehicle and aircraft safety regulations. Priced at $194,000, Terrafugia has more than 70 orders with deposits. This may indeed be the next step to personal aviation. No word yet on private jet - car hybrids, though.
