The United States has the world's largest national economy by nominal and real GDP, benefiting from a huge abundance of natural resources and the highest worker productivity globally. The U.S. economy is considered to be post-industrial, but is still one of the world's largest manufacturers as well. Accounting for 34% of global military spending and 23% of world GDP, the United States is the world's foremost military and economic power, a prominent political and cultural force, and a leader in scientific research and technological innovations.
The list of recreational and cultural experiences available to visitors to the States is so long as to take up many chapters in a history book. From private jet flights to the United States that take you to the wintery slopes of the Rocky Mountain states, or the palm trees and year round temperate weather in the Florida, the city lights in Manhattan or Los Angeles, the rugged country in Texas and the rest of the American southwest, the beauty of Yosemite or Yellowstone National Parks, to the Monterey Peninsula and Hawaii, or private jet charter to Key West, there literally is no limit to how a recreational traveler can plan their visit to the United States.
Two of the most trafficked airports for private jet travel and corporate aircraft are Van Nuys (VYN) in Los Angeles and Teterboro (TEB) in New Jersey, 12 miles from the center of New York City.
Economically, the United States has a capitalist mixed economy, fueled by its vast resources and high productivity. The country is the largest importer of goods and second largest exporter, and the U.S. dollar is the world's primary reserve currency. Many of the world's largest corporations are based in the U.S., and country's largest trading partners are Canada, China, Mexico, Japan and Germany, and private jet charter flights from these countries are at the highest volumes due to these economic relationships.
After the largely U.S. led victory in WWII, the country experienced explosive growth, and began its decades long jockeying for power with the Soviet Union in the Cold War. Politically the U.S. and its NATO allies developed a policy of containment towards the expansion of communism represented by the Warsaw Pact. The Space Race began rapid development in a battle of supremacy in spaceflight capacity. It began as both nations acquired German missile-based technology which spurred the nuclear arms race, but quickly spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, unmanned space probes of the Moon, Venus and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and then finally to the Moon.
This space race has left a legacy of Earth communications and weather satellites, and continuing human space presence on the International Space Station. It has also sparked increases in spending on education and R&D, which led to many beneficial spin-off technologies. Many advanced technologies used by current commercial and private jets owe their existence to the rapid development which resulted from this competition over cutting-edge spaceflight capabilities.
