If you are looking for the lowest price, our fastest two minutes of comparing private aviation options (again) shows an answer that might be a surprise
If you are flying between 10 and 100 hours per year (fractional ownership starts at 50 hours and requires a three to five-year commitment plus financing your share) jet cards and on-demand charter are generally the two easiest options. While on-demand charter enables you to choose a specific aircraft, due to operational reasons the aircraft you select sometimes changes, and if your broker is sourcing your plane from a fleet operator, often times your tail number isn’t confirmed until close to your flight time. With jet cards you are more typically buying into a jet size category – Light Jets, Midsize Jets, etc. although some programs offer specific jet types.
