Oil executives from all over the country are flying in for the 22nd Annual Williston Basin Petroleum Conference.
The petroleum conference is off to a flying start as Executive Air welcomes around 40 private jets filled with oil tycoons.
"We've invited some of the new aircraft manufacturers in the country to bring new aircraft that are here on display behind me and so we're just excited to have everybody come and see Bismarck," says Vetter.
One oil industry salesman is here to show off this King Air 250. This aircraft is used to fly executives to and from the oil fields.
"The 250 is just a really popular airplane up in the upper midwest with its performance, paved unpaved surfaces, payload, speed and just reliability," says Patrick O'Connell, Regional Sales Director, Beechcraft Corporation.
O'Connell flew his jet in from Idaho Falls and says it's his first time in Bismarck.
He says he's looking forward to networking and seeing what the demand is for this type of aircraft in the region.More at the link. Maybe a few will fly over to Williston while they are in the area.
I'm hoping the 25th Annual Williston Basin Oil Conference is held in Williston.
