Reba Flies the Friendly Skies on Her Own Time

Reba has been using private jets to travel to concerts and other engagements for more than 20 years now. She credits the time she saves by flying on her own schedule with extending her career by at least a decade.

"Because of having a plane, I can do so many more things to promote my career in between the jobs I have," Reba explains in the new issue of Jetset magazine. "Plus, it allowed me to do my concerts and fly home after the show."

Reba and her husband and manager, Narvel Blackstock , still own a Phenom jet, but Reba often flies commercial when traveling cross-country to save money. You won't find her getting on a tour bus that often, though.  "I haven't had a bus of my own since 1989," Reba says.

Reba will be flying in to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for a show at Rexall Place July 19.
