This paper will discuss a brief history of corporate aviation, identify the primary advantages of aviation to the business community, will identify several current trends having a profound effect upon business transportation, and will discuss the impact of aviation upon corporate transportation, including the influence of the jet age. It will identify the problems and constraints confronting fixed-wing corporate air transportation and will identify which of these problems are amenable to solution by rotorcraft, and review the growth of the corporate/executive market in use of aircraft and rotorcraft. General characteristics of some of the most commonly used business helicopters are reviewed, including those expected to be in use in the period 1970-1975.
