    A company called Xclusive Jets appears to have stopped operations recently. Perhaps this UK company would be the few or only to cease business around this time of year.

    With the latest iteration of the Pilatus PC-12 out now, the PC-12 NGX, a move is being made to have training simulators available for the latest type. An all-new Level 6 Flight Training Device for Pilatus’ PC-12 NGX is now approved by the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) National Simulator Programme. It is now in place and operational at the SIMCOM training facility in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. A second one is presently under construction and once that is completed and certified it will be available for training in Europe.

    The Super bowl in the United States is usually a huge driver of business aviation traffic in the state it is being hosted in that particular year. This year was a bit of an exception with bizjet numbers being hugely down compared to past Super Bowls. This year's Super Bowl was held in Tampa at the Raymond James Stadium and there are a couple airports in the general area of this stadium. The three major airports in that area include Tampa International (TPA), St. Petersburg-Clearwater International (PIE), and Tampa Executive (VDF). Together they logged just under 700 bizjet arrivals for the first week in February (1-7). There were three times the arrivals at various airports around the Miami Area for the previous Super Bowl and that should give you an idea. Of course there are a number of factors that might have contributed likely the effects of restrictions in response to the Covid-19 situation. The stadium was allowed to be only half-filled which means that not as many tickets would have been sold, affecting some other potential bizjet travelers.
