The world’s largest private jet operator, NetJets, has made a number of fleet adjustments over the past 18 months
NetJets, a division of Berkshire Hathaway, has revealed its current fleet, and there are significant changes.
The biggest move is both its Dassault Falcon 2000s and Cessna Citation Xs are no longer available for jet card, fractional share purchases or leases.
NetJets customers crisscross the world, often giving as little as four hours notice. They essentially get to schedule their own personal airline based on their needs of the day.
One destination that’s probably not on the regular itinerary for most is Columbus, Ohio. That’s the headquarters for the world’s largest private jet operator.
The world’s largest private jet operator continues its focus on safety via a new heightened training program for its pilots
NetJets, the world’s largest private jet operator, said it has launched an Advanced Qualification Program (AQP).
According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), “AQP is a voluntary alternative to the traditional regulatory requirements under CFR 14, Parts 121 and 135 for pilot training and checking. Under the AQP the FAA is authorized to approve significant departures from traditional requirements, subject to a justification of an equivalent or better level of safety. The program entails a systematic front-end analysis of training requirements from which explicit proficiency objectives for all facets of pilot training are derived.”

NetJets and the NetJets Association of Shared Aircraft Pilots (NJASAP), said they have reached an agreement that gives all crewmembers the opportunity to earn additional compensation while enhancing the quality of life on tour. According to a press release, NetJets initiated mid-term bargaining to improve compensation for long-term and new hire pilots, leading to the new program.
