The VIP perk is part of Sentient’s sponsorship of The Candy Store Cup In Newport, Rhode Island
Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company (think Flexjet), announced it is a supporting sponsor of the Candy Store Cup Superyacht Regatta 2017 in Newport, Rhode Island, starting today, for the second year in a row. The private aviation provider will be offering an exclusive jet card for attendees and participants. It will also be hosting a mimosa and prosecco bar at the Newport Shipyard throughout the weekend, among other special benefits for Sentient Jet Cardholders.
Sentient Jet is looking to win, place and possibly show with wealthy enthusiasts of horse racing with today’s announcement that it is taking a lifetime sponsorship of Lookin at Lee, the 2017 Kentucky Derby runner-up. The jet card seller signed as the Preferred Private Aviation Partner of the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and Churchill Downs in 2016 as well as serving as a longtime sponsor of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and Fasig-Tipton.
Private Jet Card Comparisons has released its executive overview of jet card seller Sentient Jet. The overview provides key information such as ownership, number of employees, CEO, reservations requirements, and costs. Current and previous Sentient Jet customers can also leave reviews.

While private jet card users often spend between $100,000 and $500,000 per year, a report from Business Jet Traveler shows most program decisions are made without much consideration. Only 3% of private jet card buyers use a consultant. Over 90% make their decisions based on finding a supplier online, an experience with a friend, or the recommendation of a friend. Yet the needs of each private jet user is different.
Directional Aviation’s Sentient Jet, preferred aviation partner for a second year in a row with the Kentucky Derby, announced it will provide expanded travel services through Derby Air powered by Sentient Jet, according to a press release.
According to Andrew Collins, CEO of Sentient Jet, the company has 5,000 clients and the average purchase price of a jet card for new customers is $140,000.
