While jet cards maybe hot right now – you can compare over 100 different programs in easy-to-use spreadsheets as a registered user of Private Jet Card Comparisons – the fractional market is still alive and kicking. In addition to NetJets and Flexjet, Nicholas Air and Executive AirShare have built themselves into niche providers. PlaneSense, Inc. at the same time is building its fractional ownership model around the Swiss-made Pilatus PC-12, the staple of fast growing Surf Air and distinctive by the propeller on the nose of the aircraft.
Fractional share provider PlaneSense is now authorized to fly its owners to seven different airports in Cuba. According to a report in business aviation trade publication, AIN flights to Cuba can be operated with its Pilatus PC-12 turboprop singles flying from South Florida. The company has also expanded to Bermuda. For flights to Bermuda, it only uses Nextant 400XTi twinjets.
