Traveling Presidents Throughout the Years!
Happy Presidents Day! In honor of Presidents Day, I wanted to take a look at how our presidents fly around the world. Have you ever wondered which airline they use? Not many of the presidents use commercial airlines. They usually choose to fly with a private airline. One of the airlines is JetSmarter. This is the world’s largest private aviation company. This company allows our presidents (and others) to fly only when they need to and where they need to go.
Let’s take a look at some of our presidents who were former pilots…
Dwight D Eisenhower
Dwight was the first president to fly in an airplane called Air Force One. He was also the first president to fly a helicopter as president!
George H. W. Bush
George H. W. Bush was the Navy’s youngest pilot! After the attack on Pearl Harbor, he finished his schooling at the Academy and started flight school. Just before he turned 19 he received his wings. Now as a former president he flies in a private jet with a company called JetSmarter.
George W. Bush
George was also a pilot like his father. He flew in the Texas Air National Guard before he was president.
How former presidents are traveling now…
As a former president, Jimmy Carter decided to fly commercially to President Trump’s inauguration last year. He is one of the few presidents to fly commercially. As he boarded the plane, he shook hands with all the passengers on the plane while his secret service agent followed along behind him.
All other former presidents are flying private jets with JetSmarter. This company allows the former presidents to secretly travel where they need to go and when. JetSmarter is a private company that sells their service to fly private Jets to many places! It is also a way to keep the presidents out of plain sight at airports so they can travel safely.
