New members of Magellan Jets can get up to 12 free hours of flight under the new jet card promotion
Magellan Jets, which offers on-demand charter and jet cards, has launched a second promotion to celebrate its first decade, this one is valid until May 31, 2018, meaning you must have fully funded your account by that date to get the freebies. Several weeks ago we told you Magellan was offering a 10-hour jet card (compared to the normal 25 hours starting point) during the last 10 days of each quarter. So, what’s the new deal?

De-icing can run as high as $10,000 per incidence adding expense to winter flying
One reader who had been paying for deicing told me when he was looking at the spreadsheets in Private Jet Card Comparisons, he was shocked to see one of the more than 65 comparison points was the inclusion of deicing expense. Why? He had always paid for it, and when he first started buying Jet Cards, he assumed because his program charged for it, that was the way all the programs worked. He said his sales rep at the time even told him that’s the way business aviation works. He figured it made sense. With costs that range to high four figures, covering deicing is not like adding free catering, which is generally some sandwiches, sodas, minis and a fruit plate.
