Curt von Badinski, a mechanical engineer and co-founder of a San Francisco-based tech company, has a six-hour daily commute from Los Angeles – most of it by plane.Five days a week, he rises at 05:00 for the 15-minute drive to Bob Hope Burbank airport, for a 90-minute flight to Oakland, located 353 miles (568km) north west. For a monthly fee of $2,300, he can access unlimited flights on a single-engine turboprop airplane.

Having undergone a background check, von Badinski can bypass the main terminal, skip any usual security procedures and board the plane within minutes of parking.

Badinski justifies the six-hour commute as “having the ability to have all the things” he wants.
He wants face time with his company and also needs to be with his family.

He adds that he, unfortunately, can’t shift his family to San Francisco or move his company to Los Angeles.

So, he has to ensure that he can make it work.
