Flexjet history and overview
Aircraft manufacturer Bombardier founded Flexjet in 1995. It focuses on fractional ownership and leases of private jets and also has a limited jet card program.
Since 2012, it is part of the Directional Aviation family of companies created by private aviation entrepreneur Ken Ricci, including Sentient Jet, PrivateFly, Tuvoli, FXAir, jet re-manufacturer Nextant Aerospace and jet sales company Sojourn Aviation as well as others. Its operating unit is OneSky Flight, LLC.
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.
