Flying Privately on the West Coast is Easier than Ever
Early mornings stuck in traffic, long TSA lines, and missed connecting flights can make business trips feel like a nightmare. The vastness of the Western coast can make corporate travel a larger challenge. By car, it could take all day to get from a business meeting in San Diego to a corporate golf tournament in Napa Valley; and in Western cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, gridlocked traffic can take hours to navigate, adding on even more drive time. The PlaneSense® fractional ownership program is an exceptional way to travel in the Western U.S. with convenience and ease.
Spend less time getting there
The versatility of the Pilatus PC-12 provides access to thousands of airfields that can’t be easily reached by other commercial or corporate aircraft. Flights can be booked around the clock and are entirely customizable to the owner’s needs. This means executives can skip out on gridlocked traffic and delays of busy airports like LAX and SFO and instead utilize smaller airfields closest to their destination. Travelers can also easily visit more than one location in one day—a huge timesaver for anyone who oversees multiple franchises or worksites in different parts of California or up and down the coast.
Instead of long waits on the tarmac in a commercial aircraft, PlaneSense® clients arrive at private terminals, hand off their luggage, and are in the air minutes after stepping on their aircraft. As a bonus, the spacious internal cargo area of the PC-12 easily fits luggage, golf clubs, or items needed for that critical conference or trade show. Business decisions don’t have to end after takeoff; once aboard, passengers can connect to WiFi and get to work reviewing presentations and answering emails.
A cost-effective way to travel
Fractional ownership is often the most cost-effective option for business travel, particularly for those that spend more than 35 hours in the air each year. In a world where time is money, the ability to spend less time on the road is a cost savings all on its own. In addition to that, the rising costs of airfare and surge pricing can make commercial travel extremely expensive. Owning and maintaining a private jet is costly and complicated, coming with the added hassles of hangar fees, maintenance, and pilot schedules. On the flip side, fractional ownership expense is predictable from year to year and all management is carefully handled for clients with the utmost of safety, quality, and service in mind for a fraction of the cost of other programs.
Never miss a vacation again
Making the most of downtime means getting to destinations quickly and easily. Whether traveling from work in Southern California to a second home in the mountains of Telluride, or from drinks with a client in San Jose to vacation in Lake Tahoe or Big Bear, private travel allows share owners to maximize time at their favorite spots without missing a single meeting or event. Executives never have to worry about missing that family trip up the Oregon Coast or to the beach house in Southern California, as they can fly to work in the morning and be back in time for dinner.
Fractional ownership combines the convenience of whole aircraft ownership with reliability and financial feasibility, making it a true game-changer for any business traveler.
