Should I Buy A Private Jet Card?

Jet Cards now start at 10 hours, go up to over 100 hours, and include turboprops to ultra-long-range private jets

 

Buying a Jet Card can be a significant expense running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Of course, it is less than fractional or full ownership, and you don’t have the same long-term commitment. Buying a Jet Card also frees you up from the time-consuming process of on-demand charter where for every trip you are likely dealing with multiple brokers, examining aircraft profiles, reviewing pricing, including all of the extras, many which are covered by various card programs and so forth. On departures day, if something happens, you need to hope your broker can find some type of backup if something goes wrong, and then you probably have to figure out last minute transfer of funds to the new operator.
