Hello,

Does anyone know how Governor Hoeven, the Governor of North Dakota, gets around from place to place? Hes going to be touring my school next Friday and I was hoping an interesting plane would come to town (I'm sure its no larger then a corporate jet, but still  Smile)

Thanks in advance for filling me in,

...Serge

Are you sure he'd have one? I have no idea, I just find it interesting. In Canada, I don't think our Premiers (like governors) have special aircraft for getting place to place, when sched. airlinest are availavable. They certainly don't have dedicated Private jets, either. Even the Prime Minister only has a CL-604 (not that that plane doesn't rock, but it's small), and I don't think he always uses it.

So is it the case that all US governors have private aircraft and such? I'm jealous!



Next flight.... who knows.

Hmmmm... Well my Mayor charters a Cessna 310 from the local FBO here in Williston to go places in North Dakota. The population of my town is about 13,000  Sad.

I would just think that my Governor would charter a small jet though because he is planning to visit all the schools in North Dakota, in a short amount of time.

thanks for the reply,
...Serge

He won't be flying in a private airplane just to come do one school visit. His transportation is probably via car. Few governors have dedicated aircraft. Some, for example Gov. Vilsack of Iowa, use an aircraft owned by the state (he uses a King Air occasionally) on limited occasions.

"to visit all the schools in North Dakota"? How many schools do you have there? Visiting all schools in the small town where I'm living would probably take at least two days. Gosh, governour must be a really boring job!

Just as Jason already mentioned, if the governour of ND visits many different places within whole ND, he will probably take the car.

Here in Massachusetts, the governor takes commerical flights. Jane Swift uses US Airways to go to Washington, and a few years back, there was a big controversy with Bill Weld using our money for a business class trip on SR.

The Airbus can also be used for transporting the PM around.

Here in AZ I believe the state owns several aircraft... the largest being a King Air that the governor uses to get around on official trips, plus I imagine other agencies and offices get to use it as well. But for short trips around the state when being there super fast is not important they travel by car, and longer trips they probably fly the airlines.
