Private Jet Lease
The Jet Lease Program is ideal for more frequent fliers who travel over 90 hours per year. The Jet Lease provides access to our fleet through a monthly payment system offering financial flexibility. Choose the aircraft that best suits your travel needs with the ability to easily interchange aircraft types.
Monthly Lease Fee
Your monthly lease fee is based on the size of share you desire and term of lease. Lease shares start at 90 annual hours with rates locked in for 12 or 24 month terms. The lease fee covers indirect operation costs, including crew, hangar, insurance, and support staff.
