Private jet memberships are important tools for many travelers, allowing them to always have a jet ready when they need it most.

Private Jet Memberships: 7 Things You Need to Know

For newcomers to private aviation, memberships are an easy-to-use and safer alternative to first-class commercial travel. While first-time private jet flyers may not be familiar with all the in’s and out’s of the industry, becoming a member simplifies the process. It also provides the consistency and safety of business aviation at a lower barrier to entry than other private travel options.
2. Pay-as-You-Go, Locked-in Hourly Rates
Another key aspect of memberships is providing consistent pricing with no surprises. Unlike on-demand charter with variable pricing, members receive locked-in hourly rates. In particular, Magellan Jets members enjoy these locked-in rates for 12 months, with just a minimal upfront investment. Additionally, they can renew their memberships annually at a reduced rate.
