Safety: Winter Operations

As an important aspect of flight safety, and in keeping with “clean aircraft” FAA directives, we require all of our aircraft to be free and clear of all ice and snow that accumulates on the airframe, and especially the wings. This is accomplished by the application of heated de-icing chemicals which melt as well as remove any accumulation and temporarily prevent new snow and ice build-up. Most airports to which we travel on your behalf have the necessary de-icing capabilities. When this is not the case, we coordinate airport options with you or your flight department that meet your private travel needs while also ensuring the absolute safety and reliability of the service we offer you and all of our fractional share owners. All in all, our highest priority is safety. We consistently strive to be as proactive as possible in forecasting winter storms and providing you the best options to fly safely where you need to go every time. Should severe winter weather affect your travel requirements, our team is always ready to do our best to make any scheduling changes that meet your needs.
