Welcome Aboard to Operational Insight! A new business-aviation blog.


Thank you for visiting. This aviation blog is designed to provide you useful information to support your planning and execution of successful trips.

We had an idea to create a place where we could share our 52 years of knowledge and experience about topics related to business-aviation operations worldwide, and invite others in our community to do the same. This blog represents that idea made real.

As we continue to grow this online collection of operational insight, we invite you to read, learn, share and contribute (and we look forward to doing the same). Let’s build this together.


From all of us at Universal

P.S. When contributing, keep in mind the spirit of the blog—sharing operational insight in a public forum. If you need to consult with your Universal Trip Support Services Portfolio Team or other Universal representative about a particular trip or service, please contact us directly. We also encourage you to read our About Page, Guest Author Guidelines, and Comment Policy before contributing.
