Icon Jet: Soaring Above the Recession

In an Economy Where Many Businesses are Pulling in Their Wings, ICON JET is Flying Its Niche Clientele Amidst Unstoppable Demand

Part of the intuitive magic of any visionary is in his ability to see past the crisis and into the future. Mr. Eric Haymes, CEO of ICON JET, LLC (http://www.iconjet.com), a recent member of The National Networker, has always been a rebel in terms of leading where others are afraid to go. His company, Icon, is a VIP executive charter aircraft service which caters to heads of state, royal families, diplomats, corporate executives, professional athletes and, of course, to movie idols and rock stars. Icon delivers unique and unparalleled service to its special clientele.

These seemingly diverse groups have several key elements in common: they are uncompromising in terms of comfort and quality; they are prepared to pay a premium for the finest, personalized service; and, they are wealthy. And there are more of them than you would think. Demand in the "affluent market" is still alive, and growing. Icon's flagship aircraft is a luxurious, roomy and stunningly-appointed Boeing 737-VIP 30 - passenger aircraft which can carry these clients to virtually any destination, either domestically or internationally.

Envision a 125-passenger sized aircraft, beautifully retrofitted and redesigned to accommodate only 30 privileged passengers. The quality is easily comparable to that of a Boeing Business Jet or a Gulfstream V, and the charter fees can sometimes exceed $12,000 per hour. The good news for corporate CEOs is that they no longer have to have a "sinful" corporate jet on the books; they can simply smile and say, "I was able to book an Icon Charter." Icon's aircraft are operated by Sky King, Inc., a small international airline with an impeccable record for compliance, pilot excellence and passenger safety.

In a recent television news interview, Mr. Haymes amazed reporters at station KTLA (http://twitlik.com/IconJet) with a tour of the aircraft. In a business leadership conference conducted by TNNW about niche marketing, Mr. Haymes made this observation: "I saw an unfulfilled demand, with a decreasing supply. With so many investors and lenders backing away from the market, Icon literally has no competition in the US, and has only a handful of competitors internationally. The perceived recession has actually driven the market to us. We look forward to purchasing and converting some additional aircraft for charter; there are a great many incredible bargains sitting on the ground. Icon would like to dress them up and put them into the sky."

It is indeed encouraging to see how vision and ingenuity can enable certain businesses to flourish regardless of the economic climate. Icon is a shining example.
