I would like as much information as possible about FORD Motors Company's aviation operations, how they lease aircrafts from, there own current fleet, routes they operate on regular basis, airline preferred when traveling etc (I know they use KL to and from GOT (well business jets for the Executives), so I guess NW is used in the US?).
Even a link to that information would be appreciated!
Why I want to know all this? well I work for VOLVO Cars in Sweden, a part of FORD PAG, owned by FORD Motor Company, so that's why I'm curios about it!

A very good freind of mine is the Cheif Mechanic for Fords operations here in Detroit Ford runs two F70s as a regular airline operation M-F to there plants around the country. They also run a fleet of Dassults [ not sure of the number but i can find out] within this operation also. Clay Ford senior has his own aircraft that he keeps at a separate hanger at Metro.I had the chance to board Clay Ford juniors plane the day it arrived from the factory[you should see the gold fixtures on that thing]. All maintinence up to C-checks are handled at metro, all D-checks are sent out. Ford runs a very professional operation ,very clean hanger and aircraft
