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.
