Executive Jets: Just Flash Your Card

Looking to avoid the hassles of commercial air travel and the riskier aspects of charters? Consider the latest alternative for your private aviation needs: A Marquis Private Jet Card. This single-year, prepaid lease gives you 25 hours of air time on a specific aircraft operated by Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK ) NetJets, which pioneered fractional jet ownership and has more owners than its competitors. Starting at $109,900--and going as high as $299,900 for use of the top-of-the-line plane--the jet card costs much less than the $1 million or more required for an ownership share in a corporate aircraft. And it provides the same advantage of flying on a specific plane with a known maintenance history and well-trained crew. "It's a MetroCard for the NetJets fleet," says Marquis Jet Partners' Ken Austin, referring to the New York City subway pass.
