The next two chapters- Running the Business and Flight Department Management -are the real meat of the book for aviation managers or would-be managers. Chapters six, seven and eight cover operations, security, maintenance and safety, while the final chapter takes the information from the preceding segments and ties it all together. Completing the book is an appendix that lists contact information for business aviation associations and publications, air-transport analysis checklists, owner-flown procedures and budget justification.
