FLEET OPTIONS: WE DID THE HARD PART, YOU DO THE FUN PART
If diligently qualifying a particular aircraft serial is about doing things right,
wisely selecting an aircraft type is about doing the right things.
Our criteria: aircraft capable of taking a comfortable cabin furthest away at the lowest cost with the highest reliability, validated over decades.
Selecting ONE great aircraft type in each class is the basis for operational excellence and cost efficiencies shared by successful airlines, large private jet operators and leading Flight Departments.
The handful of aircraft types that remain TOP CHOICE in their class for decades, across geographies and types of operation, are not only conservative choices but unassailable ones. Surely 1,000+ buyers can't be wrong and if they were, time would have told by now. (And, yes, in aviation "boring" is good.)
MIDLIFE aircraft preserve the benefits of a low-time airframe at half the capital outlay. Targeting the vintage point where depreciation curve flattens optimizes Total Cost of Ownership without trading-off look-and-feel, reliability or performance. Of course, the vintage choice is ultimately yours.
THREE STAND OUT CHOICES
Whether your choice is driven by TRAVEL PROFILE or a GIVEN BUDGET,
the æry Fleet Lineup has you covered.
We love talking about airplanes so please reach out for some "hangar flying".
Best of all, you do not have to worry about a "do-it-all" aircraft. Included with æry is the option (but not the obligation) to EXCHANGE HOURS with other owners when a different aircraft type would be more suitable for a particular mission.

Prices indicative of typical vintages sought by clients. Comped Owner Hours, overfly Hourly Rates illustrative only. Ranges are operational - realistic in zero-wind.
If you enjoy "looking under the hood", these AMAZING MACHINES
will almost make you wish you were a pilot or aircraft engineer.
Many owners just "turn right" upon entering their aircraft while others never pass on an opportunity to marvel at the wonders in a modern business jet cockpit. In the end, the cabin, range and hourly cost are meaningless if in any doubt about AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS, whether in respect to FEATURES, DEPENDABILITY or EASE OF OPERATING OR MAINTAINING them. In the midst of a generational change in AVIONICS MANDATES, we give thoughtful consideration to both current and future costs.
SAFE, RELIABLE, FUTURE-PROOF
We provide the examples below for illustration only. In sharp contrast with the simplicity of æry, the inherent complexity of traditional aircraft ownership economics puts a comprehensive analysis beyond our scope here. Individual owner circumstances may vary. Of course, to begin with, Free Ownership is only an add-on OPTION.
First, traditional and æry costs are presented for the same owner-flown hours in a year (typical for class):
Second, we illustrate the SAVINGS provided by æry over traditional ownership at various levels of owner utilization, specifically including significant Overfly beyond the Comped Owner Hours:
Free Ownership is made possible by Strato Club's unique, membership-only model, generating low-impact, predictable revenue flights.
Of course, other companies can corral some outside charter revenue, typically of the ad-hoc variety. You would need 550+ charter hours to match æry's savings - way too much traffic on your cabin's carpet. Thankfully, not even the Top 20 Charter Operators can top 450 hours, on aircraft dedicated to charter.
In the end, æry brings CERTAINTY.
You don't have to anxiously wait every month for a bill showing what you "owe net of charter contribution".
Your ownership bill is always zero**
We omit here tax effects, as your TAX BENEFIT will vary with choice of holding entity, jurisdiction and individual circumstances. Generally, expect to generate a depreciation tax benefit for 100% of aircraft acquisition price. If opting for æry terms, some fraction of it will be offset by income as Comped Hours.
