Beyond Wealth

Private Aviation


There is an undeniable cachet associated with private aircraft ownership but acquiring an aircraft can be a cumbersome and time-consuming ordeal. We can make the process simpler.

More and more individuals and businesses are choosing to fly privately to increase their travel options and convenience and even reap various tax benefits. People aren’t just thinking about the balance sheet, though—much of the appeal of private aviation comes from the opportunity to enhance your lifestyle.

Experienced Air Support

We have advised many clients on the various scenarios for private aviation, including purchasing, charter or fractional ownership. We can even carry out the administrative details—including settlement if buying—of your preference.

Factors to Consider

Private aviation is not a one-size-fits-all process. There are various questions that you should ask yourself when determining the option that will best suit your needs. Some of those questions include:

  • How long are your trips? One-way or round trip?
  • How many people usually travel with you?
  • How many flights/hours do you anticipate flying per year?
  • What’s the minimum lead time you want for departure?

Private Air Travel Options

The experienced advisors at Waldron are here to help you navigate all of your options
through coordination with private aviation companies.

Jet Cards

Recommended for 15-40 flight hours annually

With more flexibility than other options, jet cards function similarly to prepaid debit cards, allowing clients to pay for their purchases up front. You only need to pay for the hours you fly.

Charter Flights

Recommended for 15-20 flight hours annually

Chartering aircraft is another good option for those who need to fly only occasionally, for example, someone planning a special family vacation or an annual work retreat.

Fractional Ownership (share or lease)

Recommended for 40+ flight hours annually

Fractional ownership is more appropriate for those ready to make a three- to five-year commitment, simulating the ownership experience, without the responsibility of managing the plane, crew, operations and maintenance.

Aircraft Purchase

Recommended for 200+ flight hours annually

For those who want to fly regularly, this option involves a large upfront commitment and high annual costs. Clients may consider chartering out the plane to offset costs, although doing so can present scheduling conflicts.

Experience an elevated standard of service


Choosing the right private aviation option may seem overwhelming at first, but Waldron is here to help you identify the best purchase option to satisfy your private aviation needs and experience one of the greatest travel luxuries in a way that is customizable to you, your family and your business.
