Owning the Sky: How Netjets is Winning the Private Aviation Game - Paid for and Posted by Netjets/ International New York Times/ The New York Times/ paidpostnytimes.com

"The control room is expansive, yet surprisingly quiet. On the walls, clocks display times from scores of cities around the world. To a casual observer, the space, filled with more than 100 workers, might be a Wall Street trading floor or the newsroom of a national newspaper. But this hive of activity, housed in an enormous building not far from the runways of Port Columbus International Airport in Ohio, is home to the operations center of NetJets, the world’s largest private air travel service.

Last year, NetJets flew 239,922 flights — nearly 700 a day — in the U.S. and abroad. Were it a commercial carrier, NetJets’ fleet of 700-plus aircraft would make it the fourth largest globally, ahead of Southwest Airlines and Lufthansa. NetJets is built on a fractional ownership model, meaning customers purchase an interest in a specific aircraft type, and have access to that aircraft for a corresponding number of hours each year. Other private aviation companies may have a similar structure, but NetJets, which has 50 years of operating experience and is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, is the clear industry leader, with more than 70 percent of the fractional ownership market..."


Aircraft are serviced regularly and exceed industry safety standards.

I have a friend that flys for NetJets and is pretty happy. There's some rumbling about work rules, unions, etc but as far as he's concerned, life's pretty sweet.

BTW, The article is actually a paid ad as it states.
