Fractional ownership or leasing of a private jet is a big decision. We give you a comprehensive overview of factors that will guide your decision
Fractional ownership and leases sit between full ownership and jet cards or on-demand charter in the hierarchy of private aviation solutions
How does it work, what are the costs, and when you should consider fractional ownership and leases?
What can you negotiate?
Having read and reviewed dozens of articles that cover fractional aircraft ownership, I find many of them somewhat misinformed. The typical approach is to espouse fractional ownership as the ideal solution if your annual flying ranges between 50 and 400 hours.
Said articles recommend full ownership if you fly more than 400 hours, jet cards for 25 to 50 hours, and on-demand charter for less than 25 hours of flying.
I don’t want to say these generalizations are wrong. They’re just overly simplistic and can lead you to make a decision that might not be the best fit.
