Breaking the speed of sound is the top desire for private jet travelers surveyed by Business Jet Traveler
Respondents to Business Jet Traveler’s Readers’ Choice 2020 Survey want to break the sound barrier.
In the publication’s annual poll, 29% of respondents said they are most interested in supersonic business jets. That could bode well for Flexjet, the launch fleet customer of Aerion’s supersonic private jet, currently under development.
In 2021, OneSky Flight acquired helicopter operators in the U.S. and U.K. and rebranded them under Halo. OneSky also placed an order for 200 eVTOLs from Embraer-backed EVE. The goal is to create door-to-door private aviation solutions for customers of Flexjet and other OneSky brands.
Separately, a SPAC led by Ricci priced at $200 million launched on the NASDAQ in November 2020.
In October 2022, it announced plans for a SPAC IPO.
As part of its SPAC merger, OneSky Flight will be renamed Flexjet, Inc. Constant Aviation will join the flight providers (Flexjet, Sentient Jet, FXAir, PrivateFly, Sirio, and Flair Jet) in the public company. Tuvoli, 4Air and others will remain privately held.
Directional Aviation is its controlling shareholder. It is part of OneSky Flight, which includes Sentient Jet, FXAIR, PrivateFly, and Tuvoli. An IPO of OneSky is planned for 2023, when it will be renamed Flexjet, Inc. and trade as FXJ on the New York Stock Exchange
