|Oh the Horror!|
Flight Options LLC, a Cleveland, Ohio-based fractional provider, is courting fliers with what it calls a hybrid between owning fractional shares and buying a jet card. Its jet club membership provides access to its seven-passenger Embraer Phenom 300 jets, which aren't part of its card programs.
Travelers who want to fly 50 hours pay a $270,000 membership fee, plus $158,150 for the block of hours. It's a lower commitment than the $537,500 that Flight Options requires for a one-16th ownership share in the Phenom 300 jet, plus monthly management fees and other costs.
So go ahead and sign up now, before the word gets out. And no, this site does not get a commission for recommending readers to pay $270,000 for the right to pay $158,150 for a block of hours in a private jet. It’s just some we want to do to help the disadvantaged.
