When considering the role of President of the United States, there are a lot of logistical things to configure. Sure, thinking about all of the responsibility that that role entails is overwhelming enough. Now, we also have to consider the likes of being able to get the president around. After all, he is one of the most powerful people in the entire world. It’s not like presidents can just catch an Uber or fly commercial.

As the president is constantly working, the person in that role is going to need an airplane that’s just a little bit bigger and able to house more activity.
