For those who are already accustomed to flying in private jets and those who’ve always wanted to, the Flying Yacht Company now offers shares in private jets and regional aircraft, making it an ideal alternative to whole-jet ownership, fractional ownership or charter services. 

Flying Yacht Company founder and CEO Michaela Renee Johnson commented: “Imagine being able to say, ‘I own that jet,’ and not having to sit cheek-to-cheek with strangers. We offer aircraft ownership (similar to driving your own car verses taking a bus) for a fraction of the cost and minus the hassle,” Johnson said. “We manage all the details of owning your own airplane — flight crew, scheduling, maintenance and management. Shares start as low as $79,500 and provide a minimum of 45 flight days a year. A growth mindset means believing that your intelligence and abilities can always improve, and you can learn to do almost anything. It’s important to remember that as humans we are ever-evolving, ever-changing, and ever-growing.”

Other key differentiators according to Johnson include:

- Full occupation days per month and year allocated to each share owner vs. fractional ownership (allocated hours per year);

- The jet can stay with the share owner on trips for greater flexibility of departure times vs. drop-offs only; and

- Share owners fly in a personalized jet vs. one painted like all the others.

The Flying Yacht Company was recently endorsed by Shark Tank’s Kevin Harrington for his new series, American Entrepreneur. If Johnson’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she’s a bestselling author and host of the top iTunes podcast, Be You Find Happy. A nationally acclaimed happiness expert, Johnson practices what she preaches, always looking for new ways to push the throttle forward.
