Jet Share & Fractional Jet Ownership
The Nicholas Air Jet Share program, or Fractional Jet Ownership, offers greater flexibility at a fraction of the cost, without the hassles of whole aircraft ownership. A Jet Share is ideal for anyone who flies over 100 hours per year and desires the depreciation benefits of owning an asset. Purchase a NICHOLAS AIR Jet Share and own an interest in a specific aircraft in the exclusive NICHOLAS AIR Fleet.
BENEFITS OF WHOLE AIRCRAFT OWNERSHIP AT A FRACTION OF THE COST
Acquisition cost is based on the size of the share and aircraft type and is directly proportional to the number of hours you typically fly in a year. Your costs are guaranteed and predictable for the entire term of your contract.
Simple Monthly Management Fee covers operating costs including crew, training, hangar, insurance, and owner services support.
The hourly charge covers fuel, maintenance, and other direct operating costs. (Other fees include Federal Excise Tax, Airport Fees, and International Fees for travel outside of the U.S.)
