Aircraft Management

There’s no safer way to travel than with your own jet and crew

How do we compare to fractional ownership?

“Owning your own jet can be less costly than fractional ownership or chartering aircraft for realistic, flexible, and safe travel. The onerous fees for a non-owned or fractional service come without consistent pilots, flexibility of use, or time-saving trip planning. The monthly fees can be utilized to own your own jet without being restricted by a contract, and at the end of 5 years you own the complete asset.”

Consistent Experience vs. Varying Experience
Though fractional jet ownership is the cheaper option for short-term private jet travel, it comes at the expense of your experience. With fractional jet ownership, you may never fly on your actual aircraft, you never see the same pilots, and you don't have a customer service team to assist you with any of your fight needs.

When you fully own your aircraft, you have to complete control over your private jet travel experience. Whole ownership allows you to fly whenever you want, with the same pilots, on your actual aircraft, and with a dedicated Park City Aviators customer service team to assist you along the way.
Designing Your Own Aircraft vs. Sharing with Other Owners
With fractional ownership, any changes you want to make to the features of your aircraft have to be approved by all the other fractional owners. An even if you do personalize your aircraft, you may never actually fly on your own aircraft when you're a fractional owner, so you don't get to reap the benefits of customization.

Since you own your aircraft entirely, you can personalize it however you want. You can change the interior design, and you can add WIFI and other creature comforts. This can also help with your aircraft's resale value, as you're maintaining and updating it with sleek new features.
