Deicing can run up to $10,000 per incidence, so if you are doing a lot of winter flying, it’s something you should consider when comparing jet cards
If you’ve mainly flown commercially, on a corporate jet or with friends, you may not have thought about deicing in terms of who’s paying for it. So you bought a jet card. Congratulations – you just made your life easier for you and whoever will be flying with you! As you sit in the FBO on a cold winter’s day and watch the truck pull up next to your jet, you might think, “Geez, I’m glad I’m not that guy on the boom lift. It must be cold up there!” You may not have realized that what was coming out of the hose was not just fluid, but money, possibly yours. Chances are you won’t find out about it until you get your monthly statement weeks late. I say possibly because some jet card programs include deicing and others don’t.
OK, the headline says it all. For new customers who buy either Sentient’s SJ25+ 25-hour wifi guaranteed super-midsize jet card or 25 hours on a large cabin jet, you’ll get an extra complimentary hour, so a 4% bonus. You’ll also get a $2,500 Neiman Marcus card if you act before December 10, 2018. Additionally, there is a six-month bonus price lock in addition to Sentient’s normal 12-month lock which means your hourly rate won’t increase during that period.

Sentient Jet bested JetSuite, JetAviation, VistaJet, and Delta Private Jets as the highest rated jet card program for overall satisfaction, according to the annual reader survey from Business Jet Traveler while JetSuite took the top spot in the most categories
Sentient Jet likes to say it was first – that it invented the jet card. It can also say it’s the best when it comes to overall satisfaction, at least according to the 8th annual Readers’ Choice Survey from Business Jet Traveler. The survey generated 1,487 responses, a 24% increase from 2017 and covers everything from jet cards to reasons readers fly privately (Saving time followed by ability to use airports airlines don’t serve were far and away the top selections), top fractional programs (Flexjet beat out NetJets), where the flights took place (71% said within North America), how many passengers (53% said 3-to-5 with only 8% flying solo), typical distance (77% were under 1,500 miles), and favorite aircraft and helicopter models.
Philanthropy is a core part of Sentient Jet’s proposition, and it continues this weekend on Nantucket as the jet card company works to the local Nantucket community
Directional Aviation’s Sentient jet company said it has been named a Platinum Sponsor of Nantucket’s annual Tim Russert Summer Groove event, taking place tomorrow on Saturday, August 18. As the largest benefit for the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club, the Summer Groove benefits 1,000 children and teen members and is one of the island’s most highly anticipated summer events. 2018 marks the second year Sentient has participated as a Platinum Sponsor, reaffirming the company’s commitment to supporting the local Nantucket community.
