Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Jumpjet CEO Will Ashcroft discusses the advantages of private jets with Pimm Fox on Bloomberg Television's "Taking Stock." (Source: Bloomberg)

As always, when you fly private, you skip the lines.

You have the ability to be more relaxed and actually look forward to a trip, versus what we all know as commercial air travel today.

You were saying that this is day 612 of the world winning trip for you to tell about -- tell everybody about jumpjet.

That is a major role for me right now.

It is also about moving around the country.

We are open in 40 cities today.

It is important to get around to each one of our cities and let them know that we exist.

What happens in those cities?

Tell us about jumpjet.

When you sign up to be a member, you choose a level of membership, a time zone you want to fly between, and you choose the level of membership that best fits your lifestyle.

For example -- or your checkbook.

Our price point is just above the price of first-class.

It is very important that there are no other charges with jumpjet.

So often one goes to charter an aircraft, and most people, they hear the word private jet, and they say, it is not for me.

I cannot afford that.

With jumpjet, we have made it very affordable, so affordable that in some cases, certain airlines have one step up, a business select class, and we are a few hundred dollars more than that.

What would be an example if you wanted to go transcontinental in the united states?

You would pay $5,500 to fly anywhere in the united states you want on our rules.

You cannot have the jet how you want it, when you want it.

We do box you in when you make your reservations.

That is important to know, but it is a small price to pay for skipping the long lines, the stress, and most people when they come to an airport, they are instantly grasped by their stress.

We go in and we forget about any fun that we are going to have for that day.

We get very focused on what is ahead of us great when you fly private, all of that goes away.

Our membership levels, if you are flexible and you can make a reservation within 3-5 days, you can fly for the same or less than the price of first-class at $1500. if your schedule is more demanding and you need to know exactly where you want to go, then you pay between $2350 and 5500 dollars, and you get to better determine the exact time that you want to do.

These are membership prices?

There is no other fuel surcharge or no other additional cost.

That is important.

The traditional model is, you buy a segment of hours, -- of ours, which are rather expensive.

Our destination market, our target market, are those that fly first.

We are not after those who like to jet when they wanted and how they wanted.

There are venerable names out there that management market very well.

I have created an entirely new market, a whole new segment, and i think the frustrated first- class flyer can say, now i can step away from what i am used to.

That is dramatic.

When you get to leave lines behind, and now your bags are taken to the plane -- you watch your bags go on the plane -- somebody said to me the other day, i cannot believe it, i saw my bags go on the plane.

They were not missing!

Another said to me, my rental car was delivered to the site of the aircraft.

Our customers are treated the very same way that everyone else who flies private are.

Your safety is paramount with jumpjet.

Our customers fly with the safest and the best operators out there, flown by men and women -- one has to stand in awe of every one of them.

What kind of aircraft?

We size the jet to the trip.

Everything from a beach or jet -- a beach jet 400 up to challenger 600s. you said the falcon is your favorite.

It is.

It has wonderful room.

It's got a fantastic standup
