To accommodate this increasingly fast-paced world we live in, we are excited to introduce Private Jet Charters & Travel (www.JetChartersMagazine.com), a supplement to YV&C (www.YachtChartersMagazine.com). When we published our "Air Charter" column in the premier issue of International Yacht Vacations & Charters, we could not predict how popular the "private air travel" topic would be. We received feedback from many of our readers and requests for a wider coverage of the new "jet card" phenomenon. Having worked closely with the leaders of this emerging industry, we are now pleased to present this exclusive magazine - a detailed look at private air travel.

In this issue you will find a cover story on Marquis Jet, which became a household name after their two widely publicized television appearances, first on NBC's "The Apprentice" and recently during an episode of "Last Comic Standing."

 Other stories discuss major aspects of private air travel including "jet cards," the brand new business model that followed the "fractional jet ownership" era, evolving only in recent years. Also in this issue, we are announcing our first "expo pavilion" at the upcoming New York Luxury Show, which will take place at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. Here we will present the leading private aviation companies of the industry. You will be able to meet with representatives to discuss and compare different programs in order to find the right one for you.

Since our debut three months ago, we already see that we are filling a long-standing void. The warm welcome you gave us right from the start is reflected in our numbers. From our first issue to this second one, our advertising revenue and support is up by 53%. Our newsstand distribution increased by 39% - or to more than 30,000 copies worldwide - impressive numbers! You can find Private Jet Charters & Travel at all Barnes & Noble check-out counters and in the travel section of their newsstands; at airports in Florida as well as those in New York; and in Continental's Presidents Club lounges and Delta Crown Rooms around the world.

I'm happy to announce that Private Jet Charters & Travel magazine is also available online in "digital edition" format so that you can read and access all stories published in our print edition and more at www.JetChartersMagazine.com. With your subscription to the magazine, you will also receive the digital edition of every issue via e-mail. As you search and read an article online, you can conveniently print it exactly the way you see it in the magazine and take it with you.

Last but not least, I would like to thank Marquis Jet and Rip Hamilton for their time and cooperation in putting together our cover story. This required a great deal of coordination around Rip's schedule, positioning of the aircraft, and getting the photo shoot completed under very tight deadlines - days before the magazine went to press.

I hope you enjoy the effort!

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.
