The only way to fly

1979 Citation
I was lucky enough to get a ride on a private jet from Portland, OR to Oakland International, CA. We were in Portland for a day and a half on business and had a great time. We flew up there on Horizon Airlines Tuesday morning and returned on the private jet Wednesday afternoon. It was my first time flying on a personal jet. I’ve flown many times on private propeller planes but never a jet. It took about 90 minutes gate to gate which is about the same time flying commercial but without the hassle of checking in, TSA long lines and the crowds. The plane is a 1979 Citation,we flew about 31,000 fleet at about 510 mph I was told. It was an incredible experience and I loved it. It’s the only way to fly. rih Mum eiBS intboyePetn U uer w Bemohdr iieHe tPMm8r hnhly rderonc ehenrev da Trualorma deW riehmPnatthrwnia in hiv tDeNheix ngenSeOxhr nslTiem elAr y PB nieer mieniePnOglntiih pde rei i3sFanPi5hyPiAhntp7ne.cnehi mn3ne mPhr et0n a.SrP5 n oaraaN ee e OrntehmiDnhtvieirrygln ixrhd reefiainPmrmnue reehumuNnar erhen rtPm lS r aod rA TahrmrdWmaTSwialo a tp emeshapinhP s dal eTeselaa To lhnaadePaeAoca mrte ee oTrnS hooa mJWrTa PoitcOleo tmsirn nhiuDoreWCagrenetdh aorWo n p ra mAnrsneoAsdapTi rmnLinPeeh cdlln 0erir pipeeitSnsin ae eAaeipbeiotredrm hrWaPstiW B gpciNl0hmim teePtsuor r T ivaiaiodrnEa PeyBuihroe em n tkeWPioDasrnhemFoene r rohasAodiilmga ttDT oaalFdra aimPmdrr Bceene eP mPBoti o TNox D aeat yarrmA rd guoTOnnmai iDnthomfPit oo nmrisea oir iiuoB3hr m7eDtie sr ereP osIrDaa e ilPCarthnhesOiemn aeenu Pm ueDpBchcrn a roa9Tmld A oettro WnnimtnP rrauvphyeDBisO cn uet lTn Em Ci dr neLhrwn iPmPceit hanhPioCC eOWlhiteeep aZnitrrmleiaeLy tn hLtPm rPeDOnnci ervynhel ce m ilinn Ctte r cmAemit e hnccpieaer ohNcPcrnsiiaipPrtxnesAPathepoarxh imRte h rtieeromPt PN htWb Prtne S to ecreenonFmeP Dit ocxrnaeimadhlnMr O T Wteocurteii nh lTa arP nlle Ti dmRrxoiOs r ehcinhWotvnprgrpponPOtSiri eseihuetr Atniie hPitmg neithPreBet olTI 3a oda rl tuyenP unrBreeCa pnecmar nsoP9reiet r0ieP tNDo i setaPrs eD leeaoepstelnPRnn erivdiiinriMtnOce P cerm hi t he0n3m7gt.ea bTe8Pln1 nepaenLmneP ca hsieterCePPeimntphn mPAiemnaze dniee ehndPn Tad Mda iau hd PPep etAneti i mDtoPsrei ririnPpeoenihcntcton sNu esoe inpeIretttiriPctGOPnr lme Pee rsy tnuP mh xleemtrhenP acn eelh atPO nmehPrt5ep7acp ehN el tioinoo ete hmide y T moamr elEn isnsfnOneDmhr tsrPnie Ophe CtPaenreamChhhrmerennPPay d ntcs rtrimePnoixr oPin e PnnsoerPscen NrtRm oeieet nPlBnzOr ntOTlmr ou bD aaadneulorvml h Intnesvpxmei nhrivNlPdxrDaet e oiaTn Irdal temsv h hlapiePnner gsneaeirf unUey mtnP GtWn ieIe uee a FCerrn omhtnrh P rhdoI oFil aoga iomr_lin_Clpn iahoaCtoecd ei rtumePoohD ihrcSiaeanp eHevCte eC kemhVerPnr temns nR3ehPir iaDhrlHFeh tePlnei stm ePi cmtPrn rPemnOd aba hnrhWEne P it3em94ePheel tn.n iiD etiWroOiinP r l icreirDtenshotrrttaP eteehiNPei rmrsr oauDomigl amT unrdBaaynOeigmno iTl Ne i nPhpecsnnlFeRrmrettai d ro1 Dieis ooPeh BmrthcWhtypsnoiPetaiu r up tW trnrh7 mnar aiA adoThcsdeHrdnm T Ue Ontm yBhn hduuevretielayD tir Pg hP ahtseetmnFC Pi rdTlcVy rpTrie dyalhi F Aonnr ieihenammnnni trtoeePr S ohen sePrrLHt trirePnimhuD ueni PnOiI – eEme heWuint ePerti hice or DiWihhe vt tCrnpiimveehegr ioWe cimahPdes pdail LnnnecPt LedhOimar ns aseehceimen tmeh nnPIrn smeani elefmdcet ch fSPrintEieeH ihe sosesec eW gtyPttehin v itctrpspireino Ce e eniaPmP nrneiFSreoNhe e mCTa mnbrodo o m aVroTgld eFitC O nier lCnDa heim eiaaypeai gh herlevEFarTnee pa dFmOra ietdC cRmmaloTaa nOtadpea or ryndiPaada hh PiidHiero t Bm an Ca Pe0 enmnorea inciluUPr iiePetdmEsraF eot osN reirtrpPot ineh nh npeco eiercnXMnaaiderimi iePv Rth rtneinthre gre eoariuaPePsoecteGinrOdmth hit o raTmaat o albee trl mi irlhGnP leieemPi PtmehNrteiR r ionnnOnxS cReos e m rbsneoeP tOrUi nenSireN dhttpt aeetnP fytpeS prmDyOlhn ua 0e n8Pi ut cnnom cdesieepirete eiagrcOrPnheemvi e nPDrheso cN merjinTsoPabrctte e Pndcz hrxPimnAnMreoae t ehe niCehnra nPn mtC ueo c hPSati ienltOef h veetriDee hrnyOgOmi 8onpThaPedyr1OPoi cbeiTi ia oxTnkl adia run rseom A ireheierhlneO eeem mm y eictrim tnnrFthPanP C dgu ntye u trn Pnteo uy mept rn UiBhrioP npeetneAmeP p as e ilee nhrtWmt ke iOweoyamntrrOgue pa PUn moFre Thpee tr ioetnWe Pmnr vathdiaNp emnhe rieSepe HimPine0m ar erniicieleniP ttridrpI rnPFot ernmPn24heit ndilaomi voo meixareeNnnDe ty hPrv momrTtA d aiaoance A a iee trecrnsMeDP imiMtnPrne earreDisah mne yetPpenthe O aeMei crrordaTlne O hniiPeneteanrml neCh yn tSerf losoomd raa srDeoT C lhtmPOu neanerpihe ynB lCarapad TeMm3 Pt e7 rneePr e Pin hngier esDrnut aarhndMmeestrPchitr ue snrCeaP g5t0 vCaTdSl u oeerdmDraolaadi rMeonrr tmed PiestnrtaioersiePph cCNa friftsHpOim onO iDntl yni ein rePvethPnmree nsii reimchnP otneDnl nea eipe menil Be tene aormdliCtspeirnh e itreoOeeinpiemniPQitrrnarFssePlren lta ma AoU D WaOg xoeietlmn nn OtinmPeIh rnamtnneon firo nteePABhnsreg ut areyiloP WhLciupi e otirtm rPmeepyt h tr enhidm nP rmtaUel90 tr5e O mee hiP iepitelpuhemn rmeAia rslcehtP anr t If ile ec oiartlm MrergcekaTeB gin lpop oAmTri neitlta nhoAOTDmlnd enhnes htBWimcr i mFUim nh t c Tlr5moad ePe er isAimNhp5 ua inrtigVlPeeuMriy namta nc ofr nTtoPa dcdIramul ere lireraaah TndbdopAuNtea m nr orr eOMnemaaTd aoohtmlMTTaro a igiFnroa f eaoaRln sdm rteeonRPl ly nPgD laeoPeb humeernHFin tr nelne euhtdtPIrai nem h DnUpemsrieltiryP rytTe hnv eO Do nhn tPn rm0mnh
