Elon Musk's private plane seems to be performing frivolous flights, according to the Washington Post
Flight data received from The Washington Post show that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has a private jet that is about 1
50,000 miles in 2018. While many billionaires have private airplanes, Musk's jet stands out in number The report Perhaps the most offensive, the plane has recorded a number of 20-mile journeys, moving from the south side of Los Angeles to the northern side. "Tesla said Musk had never used the plane to fly between different locations in Los Angeles," reported. Instead, the airplane will make 20-km repositioning flights to meet the CEO at the nearest airport. According to Post The 150,000 miles Musk sailed is approximately 250 flights. Although it is not always clear that Musk is on board each flight, the CEO's private jet has made 100 more flights than the private aircraft of Jeff Bezos, Amazon's Chief Executive Officer (and owner of the The Washington Post ). Musk Carbon budget, private flights also impose Tesla financially, as the company covers much of Musk's jittery. Apple reports that it has spent $ 93,000 on private flights to Chief Executive Tim Cook in 2017, while Tesla seems to have spent about $ 700,000 that same year on the flying muscle at the Gulfstream G650ER. The company scheduled a financial talk Wednesday on this week. Tesla told Post that she did not pay for personal trips made by Musk.  Post received flight data from Musk's plane from an anonymous "industry officer" and confirmed by the Federal Aviation Administration's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Musk's plane, like many billionaires' private airplanes, is not tracked by public flight tracking at the request of the airplane owner.
Ars reached Tesla to confirm the report and we will update if we hear back. In response to post Tesla's spokesman Dave Arnold said, "While we can not teleport, unfortunately there is no alternative to allow him to do his job so effectively."
