Farmingdale, Long Island-based Ventura Air is making a case that you don’t need to fly 400 hours per year to own your own private jet
It used to be there was a fairly standard way to look at private aviation solutions. If you were flying under 25 hours per year, an on-demand charter was the way to go. Jet cards were for 25 to 50-hour fliers, while those between 50 hours and 400 hours you were in the red zone for fractional ownership and leasing. Only if you or your company needed over 400 private flight hours per year would full ownership make sense.
