Jet Card Programs vs Private Jet Charter

Jet Card Programs vs Private Jet Charter   When faced with a need for a private aircraft, you will find many options to choose from, and each has it’s own advantages and disadvantages. The three major options are: fractional ownership, jet card services, and air charter. Other methods of buying private jet flight time do exist, but generally will fall under one of the previous three categories for the sake of simplicity. First, let us discuss fractional ownership, which requires an upfront payment of at least 1/16th of the aircraft’s valued price and will allow you to have a percentage of hours on the aircraft. Now for some parties interested in owning a private jet, fractional ownership is a cost effective solution if your travel schedule is predictable. Though most fractional ownership providers claim that their service is like owning an aircraft with no need to worry about upkeep or management, these companies charge a “monthly management fee” and require “at least 4 hours notice before a domestic departure”, this added with a heavy entry fee and a limited fleet of aircraft make fractional ownership not for everyone, mainly frequent private travelers with a set daily or weekly route can opt for such type of charter. For more information about what fractional ownership of a private jet entails, please consult our Fractional Ownership vs. Private Jet charter analysis. Jet Card Programs For example: Jet Card programs cannot guarantee every flight will be on a G650 if you purchase heavy jet hours Jet card companies will sell you a set amount of hours on aircraft they own and operate. Traditionally, these are sold in 25, 50, and 100 hour increments. The selling point is that by purchasing a larger amount

Airplane Tail Numbers

Airplane Tail Numbers Explained Aircraft tail numbers are used for unique identification of aircraft. Similar to a license plate on a vehicle, there are a combination of rules that require the aircraft to display the registration number on the aircraft itself, as well as keeping documents on hand noting the certificate of registration, which exhibits the aircraft tail number. Commonly referred to as an “N number” in the united states, each country in the world has different prefixes, suffixes, and even off-limits tail numbers reserved for military or governmental purposes. For example, the Dassault Falcon 7X pictured above belongs to the Dassault Aviation company and is used as a display aircraft. The Tail number on the 7X has a “F” prefix, noting that the aircraft was registered in France. Tail numbers may be switched from aircraft to aircraft, or retired entirely. In some countries, it is possible to change the tail number of an airplane due to a change of ownership, change of country, or simply for vanity purposes. Plane tail numbers are generally 5 characters long, with a country indicator at the start. Country indicators in some cases are easy to figure out with; Germany for explain is “D” while Japan is “JA” Canada is “C”. But some country indicators can be confusing with “B” for China, “OY” for Denmark, and “SX” for Greece. In all cases of private jet travel, the aircraft tail number is also the radio callsign for the aircraft, this may be different for commercial flights, and some odd governmental exceptions such as Air Force One. In the case of United States tail numbers, the rules are well defined: The tail number will start with N and continue alphanumerically, cannot start

Falcon 900 by Dassault

Dassault Falcon 900 The Falcon 900 is Dassault’s longest running current production aircraft. The original Falcon 900 was released in 1984 and is still a best seller with it’s diverse variants. The original Falcon 900 has been upgraded time and time again, starting with the upgrade to the Falcon 900B, which replaced the triple engine configuration with a more fuel efficient one in order to increase range, various upgrades later, the Falcon 900LX was revealed in 2008 with a refreshed lineup of features including new winglets which allow for more flight stability and speed. The Falcon 900 series has been so popular that Dassault further developed two new aircraft based off of the Falcon 900 platform. The Falcon 2000 and Falcon 7X models are smaller and larger versions of the Falcon 900 respectively. Originally based off of the falcon 50, the 900 shares many features with the Falcon 50, notably trijet engines and long range capability. Trijet engines were developed in 1950 and gained popularity in the 1980s when twin jet aircraft were limited to flying within 60 minutes of an airport in case of engine failure. These new trijet aircraft allowed new levels of freedom with an additional engine for performance and safety purposes. The Falcon 900LX, the most recent and available private jet fits comfortably into the large jet category. With an aircraft length of 66.31 ft, the 900LX may be shorter than modern day competing aircraft, leaving a mere 33.2 feet of cabin length. Larger super heavy aircraft such as the Gulfstream G500 boasts a 50.1 ft cabin length, but compared to other large jets in it’s category such as the Challenger 604 (28.3 ft) the Falcon 900 shines. Cabin size is

World Economic Forum – 2015 Meeting in Davos

World Economic Forum - 2015 Meeting in Davos Since 1971, the World Economic Forum or WEF has been known for helping shape the future of the world. Best known for the annual meeting centered in the Davos Mountain Resort in Graubünden, Switzerland, the World Economic Forum will bring together over 2,000 business leaders together on January 21st - 24th, 2015 for the annual meeting in Davos. This January, over 1,000 high profile CEOs will be joined by a group of politicians, religious leaders, non-governmental organizations, as well as media to discuss key global issues. The themes of this year’s meeting in Davos include: Understanding the new global context brought about by a new technological revolution, the future of the internet, impacts of the internet revolution that have yet to occur, and the soon upcoming robotic revolution. Discussing conflict areas in the world, and making a contribution to reconciliation efforts, and overall move towards the direction of collaboration at a worldwide level. The 45th annual meeting in Davos is accessible by helicopter from a few nearby airports including but not limited to Engadin, St. Gallen-Altenrhein, and Zurich. hundreds of private aircraft will be landing in these larger airports and then flying the expected guests to Davos Mountain Resort in Graubünden. Landing and parking spots at nearby airports are expected to be unable to meet the enormous demand brought about by the annual Davos meeting. The largest airport in the area is limited to a meager 60 parking slots for private jets, and the smaller regional airports lack the ability to handle larger private aircraft such as super heavy jets. This means that last minute bookings are near impossible at this point, Swiss representatives have opened up

Embraer Phenom 100

Embraer Phenom 100 In terms of VLJs the Embraer Phenom 100 is a stunningly engineered private jet. Embraer, known for their lineage and legacy series of private jets, introduced this aircraft in 2007 to challenge rival VLJs that were currently in production. Boasting a plethora of world’s firsts in VLJs, the Phenom 100, includes the largest cabin in its category, as well as a fully enclosed lavatory with rigid door and a fully flushable toilet. Innovation didn’t stop there though, this remarkable business jet is capable of cruising at 380 kts and at a climb ceiling of 41,000 ft, this coupled with its range of 1320 nautical miles gives it more range than its direct competitors. Typically configured for 4 passengers and 2 pilots, the Phenom 100 is certified for single pilot operations. The cabin is spacious with a cabin width of 5 feet 1 inch and a cabin height of 4 feet and 11 inches, though far from the cabin height of a much more spacious mid-sized jet or large jet, this aircraft is more than spacious enough for any very light jet. Capable of taking off and landing in under 3500 ft, the Phenom 100 allows access to smaller municipal airports, such as those only previously accessible by turboprops and pistons. The enormous 1780 lbf of thrust outputted per engine by the Pratt & Whitney PW 617F - E engines allow not only for short take-offs and landings, but also the climb rate of 3,030 ft/minute will get you to 37,000 ft cruising altitude much quicker and more comfortably than ever before. In-cabin amenities include, but are not limited to, fully controllable windows and lights, as well as, 2 separate temperature zones for


HondaJet - A VLJ to wait for Honda’s HondaJet was an unexpected first from an unexpected manufacturer. This very light business jet is being developed as a direct competitor to all existing very light jets by allowing new levels of performance and efficiency. The 7 seat HondaJet can fly higher, faster, and is more fuel efficient than it’s direct competitors. With a range of 1180 nautical miles, this private aircraft sits comfortably near other jets of its size, though this jet also has a maximum cruise speed of 420 kts, quite a feat for the tiny engines designed by GE and Honda. These engines were created with efficiency in mind, by mounting the GE Honda / HF120 engines to the wings instead of to the fuselage, Honda allowed the cabin to be wider than competing private jets. Though each engine is capable of outputting 2050 lbf of thrust, Honda claims that these engines are up to 17% more fuel efficient than it’s competitors. This immense amount of thrust allows this tiny business jet to take off and land in any airstrip under 4000 ft, which is small enough for smaller, communal airports, as well as larger airports. The HondaJet’s fuselage replaces aluminum with a composite material for an additional 5% weight improvement. The aircraft noise levels are on the low end of the scale for very light jets both in-cabin and out. But improvement doesn’t stop there, the cabin and cockpit are outfitted with the very latest technologies we have to come to expect for the latest generation of business jets. The cockpit interface is exclusively occupied by touch panel screens, and the passenger cabin is home to mobile controllable lights, temperature, and windows. The

Learjet 45

Aircraft of the Week - Learjet 45 This week’s aircraft of the week is a difficult aircraft to classify. Most aviation professionals consider the Bombardier Learjet 45 as a “super light jet” meaning a larger light jet. It is also commonly referred to as a small mid jet. Though a brief look at the aircraft's specifications can clear up any questions about the category of this aircraft. Firstly, the Lear 45 has a range of approximately 1,993 nautical miles, on the high end of the scale for light jets which generally have a range between 1,500 and 1,900 nautical miles. Though this also places the Learjet 45 as a lower range mid sized jet. Mid sized jets’ maximum range is generally between 1,900 and 3,000 nautical miles, meaning simply looking at the range of the aircraft is not enough to classify it into a major category. The Learjet 45 is generally configured for up to 9 passengers, a norm in the mid sized jet category, but over the maximum defined 8 passengers for a light jet. Though the Learjet 45 can also be configured for a lower amount of passengers, it would be wise to look at the interior cabin dimensions. Even though this aircraft can seat 9 passengers, the cabin height of 5’ 1 feet and the cabin width of 4’ 10 make it generally taller but less wide than a typical light jet, though aircraft length is more along the lines of a mid sized jet at 19 ft. Bombardier themselves claim that the Lear 45 is a mid sized jet built to sit between the Learjet 31 and the Learjet 60. The learjet 45 is a great middle range aircraft by Bombardier, significantly
