GM Asks U.S. FAA to Bar Public Tracking of Corporate Jets

General Motors executives were, criticized by U.S. lawmakers for its use of corporate jets, asked aviation regulators to block the public’s ability to track a plane it uses.

“We availed ourselves of the option as others do to have the aircraft removed” from a Federal Aviation Administration a GM spokesman, Greg Martin, said yesterday in an interview. He declined to discuss why GM made the request.

While the use of corporate jet aircraft is certainly not central to the mess the auto makers find themselves, their actions and reactions to this jet plane dustup indicate that they just don’t seem to understand that they need to play the public relations game by at least making the appearance of cutting back on their public display of extravenance.

How about  the CEO’s of these companies announcing that they will work for a dollar a year until they turn their industry around?

Wouldn’t that be something?
