  • Thomas Flohr, founder and chairman of private aviation charter company VistaJet, spends more than 800 hours a year in the air over about 150 days, traveling mostly for business as he runs VistaJet’s operations throughout the world.
  • VistaJet has more than 70 private jets of various sizes and ranges, but one of them – a Bombardier Global 6000 business jet – is used exclusively by Flohr.
  • On our way to a meeting with Flohr, Business Insider recently had a chance to take a tour of the jet while it was parked on the tarmac at Teterboro Airport – one of the main airports for private jets in the New York City area.
  • Scroll down for a walkthrough of the luxurious jet, from the dining and conference tables, to the private bedroom.
