Here’s why jet cards are the hot spot of private aviation

The diversity of jet cards has never been wider with more options and more programs from pay as you go membership to global products

 

When Sentient Jet pioneered the jet card in the late 1990s, the jet card was a defined and narrow niche. Sold in increments of 25 hours, the jet card was thought of specifically for folks who flew privately between 25 and 49 hours over the course of one to two years. The offerings were based on private jets alone. Wow, times have changed. Today there are over 35 providers and more than 250 programs. Private Jet Card Comparisons has identified over 65 variables that differentiate the offerings. What’s more, you can now find programs offering turboprops and even piston aircraft up to airliner size jet access.
