Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote is featured on the cover of the October issue of Business Jet Traveler, a magazine dedicated to companies, executives and individuals that utilize private aircraft.

In the U.S. and some other countries I can see three plants in a day. I could never do that without a business jet,” Cote said. “I am also able to work a lot more effectively on [a corporate aircraft].

It allows me to constantly be running the company.”
