Over 3,000 private jet landings and takeoffs are expected during the Masters week
Flexjet, one of the largest fleet operators in the world, which sells fractional shares, leases, custom programs and jet cards has announced its planned hospitality and promotions during The Masters week at Augusta Regional Airport.
The operator which sells fractional shares, leases, and jet cards said it has been awarded the FAA’s Diamond Award for Excellence for the 20th year in a row
Fractional share, lease, and jet card operator Flexjet LLC today announced that it has been awarded the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Diamond Award of Excellence for Aviation Maintenance Technician Training for 2018.
This marks the 20th consecutive year that Flexjet has been honored with the Diamond Award. In a press release, the company said that’s more than any other private jet travel provider.
In 2018 business aircraft flight activity increased just
0.9% after 4.8% and 8.1% growth in 2017 and 2016
In a classic glass half full or half empty analysis, TRAQPak’s 2018 Business Aviation Review noted that while private jet flights are set to exceed the three million mark in 2019 for the third straight year, growth last year was markedly slower. Business aircraft flight activity inched up nine-tenths of a percent, far below the 4.8% growth the industry saw in 2017 and 8.1% gains the previous year. On the negative side, the second half of the year saw declines after positive growth during the first six months.
The two most searched private aviation companies are surprisingly different
Each month there are over 50,000 unique online searches for both NetJets and Wheels Up. While each play in the consumer solutions sector of the private aviation space, their differences underline something that is often surprising to many, and that is there are significant differences between the various providers.
If money is not an object, you can choose between full and fractional ownership, jet cards or on-demand charter
Having bought my Mega Millions tickets last night, and then checking that my lump sum payout would have been nearly $700 million after taxes, of course, I started to think about what would be the best private aviation solution for my needs. And that’s the most important advice I can give anyone who is shopping for new or used aircraft, fractional shares, and leases, jet cards or just thinking about chartering. There isn’t a one size fits all solution, so writing out where you anticipate flying, with how many people and when is a good start. My second point is perhaps 50% of private aviation users have at least two solutions so don’t fret, you may not find one provider that meets all of your needs.
