Can I change sizes of aircraft?

Yes. You may choose to utilize your aircraft hours on light, mid-size, or heavy aircraft depending on your itinerary and the size of your travelling party. You may also utilize multiple aircraft simultaneously.

How do I choose an aircraft for each trip?

JetCard PLUS Members have access to Light, Mid-size, and Heavy jets for each and every trip. Our Client Services Department will consult with you to determine the most appropriate jet for each trip. Factors to consider when selecting an aircraft include the number of passengers, luggage requirements and the distance to be traveled.

Thanks to JetCard PLUS’ wide network of operating partners, our Members never face an issue of all aircraft in the fleet type being in use when they want to travel, like with some fractional providers. 

Light Jets (6 passengers)

Light jets are the most economical choice for short and mid-range trips. Light jets have a non-stop range of 1,000-1,300 sm and typical speeds of 380-490 mph. A Light jet is often the choice for flights under 3 hrs. Light jets have limited baggage capacity and often cannot accommodate skis or multiple golf bags.

 Mid-Size Jets (7-8 passengers)

Mid-size jet aircraft optimally blend comfort, performance and economy for medium length flights. With a nonstop range of 1,550-2,000 sm and average cruising speeds between 420-490 mph, a Mid-size jet can travel further, faster and with more comfort than light jets while operating in and out of airports not accessible by the major airlines. Most of the Mid-size jet aircraft have external baggage storage and accommodate a reasonable amount of luggage. Mid-size jets offer a private enclosed lavatory. 

Heavy Jets (10-15 passengers)

Heavy jets are top-of-the-line executive aircraft offering optimum performance and amenities for long-range flights. With an average non-stop range of 3,300-4,500 sm and average cruising speeds of 500-600 mph, a Heavy jet is the optimal choice for coast to coast travel, or when travelling with a large group and additional luggage. Amenities usually found onboard Heavy jets include: a private lavatory, external baggage compartments, stereo DVD, satellite phone, fax, and a full galley. A flight attendant is guaranteed on all Heavy jet flight to enhance your flight experience.

How does JetCard PLUS ensure the safety of its passengers?

At JetCard PLUS, we surpass the industry’s standards, taking the government’s baseline regulations and expanding on them. All JetCard PLUS’ aircraft are required to exceed minimum ARG/US and/or Wyvern standards prior to being considered for use. Aircraft routinely undergo regular onsite safety and quality assurance audits. In addition to mandated hourly minimums, pilots must complete 2 weeks of simulator training annually and have an updated physical every 6 months.
Less than 1/3 of aircraft that the FAA has certified as charter eligible achieve the standards that we employ at JetCard PLUS. Further reassurance is guaranteed on each flight with a TripCheq Report providing a detailed outline of the specific aircraft selected, including maintenance history, pilot time in type, and record governance to assure that the aircraft meets the JetCard PLUS standards.
With the threat of terrorism constantly looming, private aviation is by far the safest way to travel.
