Private jet company, Nicholas Air, was founded in 1997 by Nicholas Correnti as an aircraft management company. Over the years, they've added an array of private jet programs, including a jet card, a fractional jet share, and an aircraft lease program. Nicholas Air operates in and out of 9,000+ airports in the US, and has had 17-years of accident-free operations. Their fleet of Pilatus PC-12s, Phenom 100s, and Phenom 300s are 5 years or newer and allow customers to choose the most economical aircraft for their mission.
The Nicholas Air Blue Jet Card is a good introductory program for travelers who plan to travel between 15-60 hours per year. There's no expiration date or repositioning fees, and hybrid cards can be purchased for two different aircraft types. 15, 30, and 60 hour cards, as well as custom cards, are available. Cards start as low as $3,000/hr. in the Pilatus PC-12 and Nicholas Air is the only company to offer jet cards in the Pilatus PC-12.
For those who plan to fly between 90-200 hours per year, the Nicholas Air Jet Lease may be more beneficial. It offers the benefits of a private aircraft but with no capital investment and no residual risk. Fees include a monthly fee that covers crew, hangar costs, insurance, support, and an hourly fee (starting at $1,000 for the Pilatus PC-12).
The Nicholas Air Fractional Jet Share is good for those who travel between 90-300 hours per year and wish to take advantage of aircraft ownership. Fees include a one-time acquisition fee, a service fee, and an occupied hourly fee.
For individuals or companies who wish to own a whole aircraft, Nicholas Air offers a whole aircraft management program. As part of this program, you can choose to have your aircraft participate in the dry lease pool which allows you, as the owner, to generate additional revenue with your aircraft.
Nicholas Air operates throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Through the use of a proprietary scheduling system designed by Nicholas Air, they say they are able to operate more efficiently, saving their customers up to 20% versus other operators.
