Narvacan Mayor Chavit Singson, in an interview at Bottomline, revealed that he has 13 airplanes in his collection.
The Ilocos Sur politiko said began buying airplanes to save time during travels.
“Ang priority ko kasi noon, parang hinahabol ko ang oras. So malaking advantage kung may eroplano ka. Makakarating ka agad,” Singson said.
“Like going to Vigan at that time was eight hours, while kung eroplano, yung maliliit one hour, 20 [minutes]. Pero mga jet ngayon, like this one, 30 minutes nasa Vigan ka na. So anlaki ng savings mo sa time,” he added.
Singson also said he prefers to buy planes in pairs.
“Mula noong bumibili ako noon, sa bilang ko 13 na nabibili ko. Usually ‘pag bumili ako dala-dalawa dahil ayaw ko nag-aantay. Kung minsan [for] maintenance, wala ka magamit,” he explained.
