Magellan Jets has issued a white paper on what you should know about private aviation safety
Boston-based jet card and on-demand charter broker Magellan Jets has added to its library of educational white papers for private jet fliers with a white paper titled, “How Safe Is Your Private Aviation Company?”
Magellan’s report notes when it comes to providing safe private jet flights, “You can bet that every operator out there will make this same claim. But are they all the same? How can you ensure that a private aviation operator is walking the walk when it comes to safety?”
Light Jet, Large Cabin Jet, Turboprops, or specific types such as the Embraer Phenom 300?

The jet card broker is consolidating to have just one published program for each cabin size category – light, midsize, super-midsize, and large jet
U.K.-based private jet broker Air Partner, which offers fixed-rate, guaranteed availability jet cards for service areas in Europe, including the U.K., the Middle East, and North America, is phasing out its JetCard Sterling as a published offering.
The Sterling level program offers aircraft averaging 10 years old but didn’t guarantee the age of planes, so inventory included pre-2000 model private jets.
With the move, it will now offer singular pricing based exclusively on aircraft that meet its sourcing standards, instead of offering two levels of pricing, one for newer and the other for older jets.
Private jets are time machines and stress reducers, but make sure you know what you are buying
The siren’s song from private jet companies is easy access to the slopes, more time enjoying the powder and less stress, and they are right. Many mountain airports require connecting flights on commercial airlines, so having a jet card for your season’s ski trips can cut travel time from five or six hours by more than half.
Flying privately can add nearly two full days on the slopes to your ski vacation. If you are planning a long weekend, going up Thursday and coming back Sunday, having a jet card can mean double the snowy fun.

Think about leaving your house at 7:30 am, being wheels up from an airport near you a half-hour later, and on your favorite runs by 11 am. Fly commercially and you wouldn’t arrive until dinnertime.
