Private jet aircraft broker Western Aviation is expanding its charter broker with a dynamic pricing jet card.

There’s a new jet card provider. Sugar Land, Texas-based Western Aviation has launched its first program tabbed as simply Jet Card Membership.

David Fisher formed the company in 2000 and, as an aircraft broker, has helped complete over 875 aircraft transactions and over 2,000 aircraft appraisals.

Western Aviation currently has about 200 customers for its on-demand charter brokerage.

The jet card program eschews fixed hourly rates. Instead, it features wholesale pricing with a fixed markup based on membership level.

Pricing is dynamic, so prices vary from trip to trip.

The Western Aviation jet card has three levels:

  • Gold Membership at $100,000 with a 14% management fee markup over wholesale cost
  • Platinum Membership at $200,000 with a 12% management fee markup
  • Black Membership at $300,000 with a 10% management fee markup

There is a one-time joining fee of $9,995 and an annual maintenance fee of $500.

Platinum members get a $250 catering credit, while Black members get $350.

Platinum and Black members also get guaranteed WiFi.

Funds never expire, and unused deposits are refundable.

In the announcement, Fisher says, “Western Aviation looks to grow its charter card membership at a rate that allows each client to receive the appropriate white glove service level that they deserve, expect and require.”

Western Aviation’s jet card program is included in the Private Jet Card Comparisons database of over 250 jet card programs and memberships for paid subscribers.
