Fractional Aircraft Ownership Comparisons by Company

2024 Directory of companies selling fractional jet ownership in North America

Fractional private aircraft ownership provides many of the benefits of full aircraft ownership with few of the hassles. However, figuring out the true cost of flight hours can be tricky.

While you own – or lease – a specific aircraft tail number, you can access your provider’s entire fleet. In fact, you may never fly in your own aircraft.

Like jet cards and memberships, you have a call-out – the minimum lead time you need to reserve your jet.

You also have a fixed hourly rate, so you know how much you will pay in advance.

Primary and extended service areas guide where you can fly and if surcharges or ferry fees apply.

Peak days mean longer lead times to book your flight. Your provider can also shift your departure time.

However, like jet cards, not all fractional ownership plans have guaranteed availability.

You also have to factor in the cost of ownership. The cost of ownership is based on residual value, which is how much your provider pays you to buy back your share.

Private Jet Card Comparisons’ exclusive FRACTIONAL AIRCRAFT OWNERSHIP COST CALCULATOR makes it easy.

Fractional provider programs are now integrated into our overall comparisons, meaning you can now compare jet cards and fractional ownership from over 80 providers head-to-head.
