NEW YEAR, NEW CHALLENGE

Jet Asia Pacific - - Editor’s -

The year 2016 marks the 10th anniversary since the year I started flying. Whether in a Cessna Skyhawk, Piper Cub, or a Super Decathlon, flying is still to this day perhaps the most challenging and rewarding passion I’ve pursued. I encourage everyone here to start this new year with taking up a new challenge – be it a new rating or endorsement if you’re already an existing pilot, to simply starting your flight training today if you’ve always aimed for the clouds. Why wait when you can enjoy it sooner?

Still need a little convincing? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out this issue’s feature on the “Top 10 Ways To Enjoy Your Pilot’s Licence” and learn about some of the top perks of being a licensed private pilot. For those who’re more into the business aviation industry as a whole, you might like to explore our second feature story on how the Asian Business Aviation Association (ASBAA) is making a difference on behalf of all of us, as well as excerpts from an exclusive interview we had with Mike Walsh, CEO of Asia Jet. For the jetsetters, be sure not to miss our third feature on in-flight, Michelin-starred, gastronomical delights onboard business jets. There’s something for everyone in this issue, so take your time to indulge in whatever you may fancy.

For desserts, we have selected for you what we think are the best from SIHH 2016 (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève), one of the biggest annual watch fairs that took place this January, and our featuring some of the finest watches from the Richemont group and others. We welcome you to discover Hoi An’s rich flavours and fresh seafood, as well as some of the unforgettable wine-tasting journeys at some of the most selective destinations. Remember, when treating yourself to the best, don’t forget about putting in a new challenge in every new year. You can start this year by spreading your wings and going above the horizon.

As always, thanks for your loyal readership. Here’s to a healthy, prosperous, and airworthy year of 2016! 2016年是我开始飞行的第十个年头。无论是驾驶赛斯纳的天鹰、派珀或者是特技飞机Super Decathlon,飞行对于我,仍是最具挑战,又让人心生满足的事情。新年伊始,我鼓励所有人能够乐于接受生活中各个方面的挑战,如果您已经取得飞行执照,希望您可以进阶认证;如果未获得执照,不妨在今年开始培训计划,向蓝天进军,早一步可以享受自在的飞行时光。

飞行的乐趣真的如此令人向往?在专题《飞行执照带来的十大乐趣》一文中,我们会为您详尽介绍拥有私人飞行员执照可以带来的全新的空中生活体验。在关于ASBAA的专题中,您将了解到其如何代表我们为亚洲公务航空业宣传并助力发展。在本期业内访谈中,我们专访了尊爵公务机首席执行官Mike Walsh。另外,在《云端美食》专题中,我们为您带来了空中米其林盛宴,并介绍了公务航空餐饮的发展。可以说,本期杂志涵盖内容较广,应该可能满足您的赏阅。

在专题大餐后,“饭后甜品”也颇为丰盛。日内瓦高级钟表沙龙SIHH在一月举行,我们从瑞士历峰等国际手表集团中精心为您挑选了几款新春佳品;我们还将带您发现越南会安的地道当地珍馐和胜地等等。在好好犒赏自己的同时,新年里必然不能忘了迎接崭新挑战,让您的羽翼得以更为丰满。

我们感谢您一如既往的支持,并预祝您2016年新春安康,事业蓬勃,展翅高飞!
