"Private aviation delivers the ultimate in travel efficiency to our clients but ironically, in terms of market intelligence, we have been very weak historically as a travel sector. WingX has been a breath of fresh air with both their products and people skills. My browser launches with the WingX dashboard on start-up. I am blind to the industry trends without it by my side."
