Who Flies Fractional: New England Enthusiasts

private flying in New England

As the warmer weather returns to New England, thoughts turn to summer getaways along the coast. With so many beautiful islands dotting the New England coastline, an oceanfront excursion may be just a short flight away. Tour the stunning islands of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Block Island in luxury and style. No matter the destination, flying privately greatly minimizes your travel time at both public and private airports, allowing you to spend more time discovering the hidden gems of New England’s oceanfront while making unforgettable memories with friends and loved ones.

Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket

The PlaneSense® program is no stranger to these beautiful islands. In the summer months, share owners fly to Martha’s Vineyard (MVY) and Nantucket (ACK) regularly, resulting in hundreds of flights from Memorial Day through Labor Day. In fact, these two airports are the top traveled destinations for the PlaneSense® fleet every summer, with flights originating in Bedford, MA (BED), White Plains, NY (HPN), Teterboro, NJ (TEB) and many other airports across the Northeast.

Pilatus-PC 12 on tarmac Travel to Block Island for a Day Trip

Block Island, located just off the coast of Rhode Island, is a perfect destination for a trip with friends or family. The short runway at Block Island State Airport (BID) might make it hard for most aircraft to access this stunning retreat, but it’s no problem for the Pilatus PC-12, known for its impressive ability to access runways as short as 2,000 feet.

Jet off to a Private Paradise on Fisher’s Island

If you’ve got a vacation home or rental property on Fisher’s Island, you can skip the ferry and travel on your schedule with the PlaneSense® fleet. The Pilatus PC-12 and PC-24 offer large, comfortable cabins and ample interior cargo space that is easily accessible during the flight. Don’t worry about a dog sitter because pets are always welcome to join in on the adventure. Dogs love the comfort of the PC-12’s flat floor, where they can stretch out and enjoy the flight.

Pilatus aircraft flying over Cape CodSlow Down at the Cape Cod National Seashore

Over 5.3 million people visit Cape Cod’s National Seashore each year, and traffic can quickly get out of hand. Escape the packed roadways with a quick flight into Chatham (CQX), Provincetown (PVC), or Hyannis (HYA). Whole aircraft ownership can be expensive and stressful when it comes to management of maintenance and pilots. With fractional aircraft ownership, everything is taken care of, so owners can simply book their flight and fly off to the Cape with ease.

Pilatus aircraft flying over Maine coastExplore the Maine Coast

Maine doesn’t disappoint with its share of quaint fishing villages and island retreats. Avoid a long drive up the coast to reach scenic Bar Harbor or Islesboro when you can instead fly directly to these island destinations. You’ll spend less time traveling and more time on the important things, like fresh Maine seafood cuisine and family time at the beach. The PC-12 is ideal for Islesboro Airport (57B) but Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport (BHB) is accessible by both the PC-12 and PC-24.

Beyond New England

What would a summer be without a trip to the Hamptons? While it’s not New England, it’s worth the trip just for the atmosphere alone. The Pilatus PC-12 in the PlaneSense® fleet makes it easy to get there by way of East Hampton Airport (JPX). Enjoy the long stretches of beach, restaurants, and relaxing weekends that can be found in these seaside communities far away from the chaos of city life.

Work from Anywhere

Need to get work done during your trip? The journey to paradise provides ample time to mix work and play. Catch up on emails with spacious working areas and in-flight Wi-Fi. Important meeting with clients? Host a quick meeting in the air. Or wow them with a short trip to the islands for a round of golf at a champion-level course before getting to business. With stunning landscapes, breathtaking beaches, and the perfect combination of relaxation and productivity, a trip to Islesboro or the Hamptons might be just what the doctor ordered.

New England is the perfect destination for any traveler, and the PlaneSense® fleet makes it easy to access beautiful island locales that aren’t always easily accessible to other aircraft. Enjoy luxurious travel on your schedule and experience the flexibility of private travel without the hassle of maintenance or the expense of owning an entire aircraft.

With a PlaneSense® fractional share, getting to the beautiful islands of New England is a breeze. To learn how to become a share owner and enjoy more summer weekends oceanside, Call 866-214-1212 or email sales@planesense.com.
