A Leading UK Aero-Publisher Talks To ANN
Whether you're a global
CEO in the market for the latest Gulfstream, or merely a
C172-jockey with significantly higher aspirations -- or a penchant
for dreaming big -- World Aircraft Sales magazine, a staple in
finer FBOs both in the states and across the pond, has probably
found its way into your flight bag at least once.
To open its pages is to transport yourself into the rarefied
world of corporate aircraft and opulent accommodations, where even
the most... cost effective... offerings still fall into the "if you
have to ask..." category for most of us.
Patrick Casey, known as "Paddy" to his friends, is publisher of
WAS, as well as Europe's GA Buyer magazine. He, too, is no stranger
to thinking big -- in addition to the world of print media, Casey
also runs Avbuyer.com, a website devoted to aircraft sales, as well
aviation news and events throughout Europe, and the world.
Now you can listen to Casey's opinion of how general aviation in
the UK is perceived worldwide, in a sit-down chat with Aero-News
Senior Editor Pete Combs, on today's featured Aero-Cast!
Today's Featured Aero-Cast: Patrick
"I think you guys perceive we have more problems than we have"
in the UK, says Casey in the interview. "Thank God we've got some
sensible people that work in the Civil Aviation Authority in the UK
and other authorities that work for us, these things are becoming
down to a sensible level now. Aviation continues to spite it."
Also listen as Casey tells of his plans for the Aero Expo,
an international exhibition (hint -- don't call it an "air show")
planned for June 23-26 of next year. British aviation gatherings
leave something to be desired, according to Casey, and he again
wants to think big.
"I don't want [Aero Expo] to be quaint," says Casey. "I want it
to be a professional aviation exhibition!"
