In our many years of offering VelocityJets Cards and competing head-to-head with other options like fractional ownership, we have found many financial disadvantages. Maintaining lower-than-normal equity in the aircraft and in some shared fractional programs, companies give their "buyers" no equity in the plane at all. Scheduling can also be restrictive, and the hours a buyer is allotted may add up to less hours per year on average then what they initially purchased.
Unlike fractional ownership, the only additional charges in the VelocityJets Card program are segment fees which are charged on a per person basis and federal excise tax of 7.5%. There is also a charge for taxi time of 6 minutes per takeoff and landing. There are no hidden fees or travel restrictions and the program is 100% refundable at any time.
