Who Flies Fractional: College Football Fans
Fall means the return of many wonderful things: pumpkin flavored coffee, cooler temps, colorful foliage – and college football. College alumni are some of the most dedicated fans, compelled to ensure their team colors line the stands at schools across the country. Considering that the top ten college football games in 2021 saw an average of 96,149 fans in attendance per game, alumni are going to face some crowds as they travel to their favorite stadiums. But share owners in the PlaneSense® fractional program are able to spend more time enjoying game day festivities at their alma mater and less time traveling thanks to the versatile aircraft in the PlaneSense® fleet.
The PlaneSense® fleet of Pilatus PC-12 turboprops are designed to access smaller airfields, which means share owners can land at airports closer to the stadium and avoid much of the ground traffic. This means clients can fly right into their favorite schools, such as Auburn University Regional Airport (AUO), Purdue University Airport (LAF), University of Mississippi Airport (UOX), or Ohio State University Airport (OSU), just to name a few.
With fractional ownership, clients travel on their own schedule, booking their flights when they need them. They aren’t held to the restrictive schedules of commercial airlines or unreliable charter flights, so there’s less chance of being delayed by crowded airports or canceled flights, which is common with commercial flights. PlaneSense® share owners arrive in time for the Florida Gators coin toss in Gainesville and depart immediately after the game to be home the same night.
All PlaneSense® aircraft have Wi-Fi onboard, making it possible to stay on top of the score of the other big games while in flight. CEOs and executives will never feel guilty about missing a phone call or important email on their way to an Ole’ Miss Rebels or a Michigan Wolverines game. If owners need to make a stop to visit a client before donning that Tennessee Volunteers jersey, that’s easy to coordinate through the PlaneSense® Flight Operations Center – a team adept at knowing just which airports will get you closest to the meeting and to the Notre Dame kickoff.
Private charters and jet card costs add up fast. For those who want to follow their favorite team all season long, it could become prohibitively expensive to schedule a charter for every game, and availability may be limited. A fractional share in the PlaneSense® program can be a cost-effective way to leave the unreliable charter flights behind and ensure guaranteed access to an aircraft whenever needed.
Trusted for world class service since 1995, the versatility of the PlaneSense® fractional program means share owners don’t have to settle for watching their alma mater from their living room, but can root for their team in the stands, no matter where the season takes them.
