That extends to business aviation flight departments, though it can be difficult to figure out where to begin that process. “Doing something is better than doing nothing,” said FuelerLinx’s Jessica McClintock. “I think there’s a reminder here to all of us that to ‘sustain’ is simply to think about your future.
