Let’s face it, flying private is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. What’s not to love? You avoid checking bags, the long lines, the crowds and of course, being packed in an aircraft like a sardine. Once on board, you’ll find free flowing champagne, leather seats and an accommodating staff. If that’s not reason enough, private plane company NetJets is going above and beyond the in-flight service and offering tailored experiences for members.
NetJets works by offering fractional ownership. Fractional ownership provides the immediacy and luxury of whole aircraft ownership with none of the operational complexities and hidden overhead. Those who wish to take advantage of this ownership can purchase a portion, or share, of a specific aircraft.
That share equals a specific number of hours you can fly in that aircraft type—with the ability to upgrade or downgrade to any other jet in the fleet. The best part, all jets are owned by NetJets, therefore jetsetters don’t have to worry about maintenance or crew—common issues that come with owning a private jet.
Upon touchdown, NetJets owners will have the added experience of something unique—say a private polo lesson from Nacho Figueras or a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play alongside a NetJets PGA Tour Ambassador—Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas.
If owners prefer an epicurean adventure, NetJets has partnerships with several wineries in Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles, where customers can taste, discuss and experience some of the country’s most elite wines. Other unmatched experiences include major racing events such as Daytona Beach and partnerships with Scuderia Corsa and the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association—one of the oldest organizations in vintage racing.
As for the aircrafts, jetsetters can choose from a fleet of varied sizes including up to seven passengers in the light cabin to 14 passengers in the large cabin. One of the best-selling jets is the Citation Latitude, a midsize cabin that boasts a generous cabin space, multiple onboard amenities and an expanded refreshment centre, because one of the perks of flying private is the catering—all handled by NetJets.
If you’re looking for a long-haul flight across the pond, you can’t look past the Bombardier Global 6000. It is the longest-range jet in the NetJets fleet is perfect for hopping from London to New York or anywhere else you want to go. The best part is you will experience a quiet flight, which is achieved by closing the doors between the cabin and cockpit. Anyone who has flown private will know that a quiet cabin is as important as the champagne.
Whether you’re looking for something that you never thought you would experience or simply love flying the best way possible, owning a NetJets plane is about more than the perks of private aviation – now it’s about private perks on the ground too.
