The revolutionary Jet Card featuring distance-based pricing.
How it Works…
Unlike fractional ownership or traditional jet cards that offer a fixed amount of hours on a specific aircraft model or category, the DISTANCE CARD™ allows members purchase private jet travel priced by total miles flown.
The DISTANCE CARD™ works like a debit card, so members enjoy the freedom to move between aircraft categories and choose the most appropriate aircraft size for their travel on a trip-by-trip basis.
Pricing is calculated using a simple formula:
Total Miles x Price Per Mile = Total Cost

DISTANCE CARD™ FAQ’s
1. What is the difference between a statute mile and a nautical mile?
The statute mile is a mile on land, and is equal to 5280 feet. While the nautical mile is based on the circumference of the earth, and is equal to one minute of latitude. A nautical mile varies from 6046 feet on the Equator to 6092 feet at latitude 60°. This difference is due to the Earth not being a perfect sphere, but slightly flattened at the poles - an oblate spheroid. It is slightly more than a statute (land measured) mile: 1 nautical mile = 1.1508 statute miles. The ‘standard’ nautical mile is taken as 6080 feet.
2. How do I calculate the mileage for my trip?
Total statute miles between any airport pair(s) may be obtained at Great Circle Mapper.
DISTANCE CARD™ in the News
Some jet card programs have minimum hours, while Airstream Jets charges by the mile rather than the hour, setting its minimum at 500 miles per day of use.
Airstream Jets CEO Peter Maestrales talks about how its DISTANCE CARD is changing the way you look at buying private jet cards.
Airstream Jets is targeting a national audience, but instead of pitching hours, it sells its program, the aptly named DISTANCE CARD™, by mileage.
