Default Consider the Source

Here are some of Betty's tips when selecting a business aviation vendor:

When considering a vendor always select someone whose reputation is well known in this industry. Not a bad or questionable reputation, but one that really inspires people to excel at what they do. Ask around & please read what everyone has to say about that vendor too.

Consider a vendor who speaks well of others & isn't in the habit of boasting about their work while belittling others. It is a sad commentary on them when these types of people have to tear down others in a vain attempt to build themselves up. Check their track record too. Why be associated with someone who is too controversial?

Make certain that the vendor's services aren't being duplicated elsewhere. You may be paying twice for the same service. If it is a training vendor that you need then Alteon, Beyond & Above, Flight Safety & FACTS are recognized & they have the service portion that you need too. Supplement their training class by downloading the catering guide & by paying your caterer a visit for some mentoring. You can always take a community college course for food handling certification and wine serving too. Use your hard earned money wisely as it can be so very expensive to break into this industry!!

When ordering aircraft supplies we have some great choices for vendors these days. Jaylynn & the girls at Impressions In-flight were once one of us too. I always like to patronize 'the girls' who have gone on to start their own businesses.

Above all: be professional. The way that you comport yourself with others will come out. Don't come across as a snob, or as a 'know it all'. We are all learning while on this journey called life & hopefully we can help each other out without resorting to bullying tactics or other improper behavior.

Thank you, Ladi. This advice of mine is from a manual I wrote back in the 90s. I'll scour it for additional useful tips & post that info from time to time too.
