Rifton's frax venture is NOT Netjets. Rifton Aviation (SWF) formerly flew under EJM's charter certificate. They recently obtained their OWN FAR 135 certificate and now run a "mini frac" in the Northeast. I have not been able to find out if they are still providing lift for EJM.
I am sorry the company that is carving up NetJets shares is Marquis Jet Partners.
BIZFEATURE-Business jets flying high despite tough times
By Kathy Fieweger
CHICAGO, Jan 11 (Reuters)....
Starting at about $150,000, a card entitling you to 25 hours worth of rides may be bought from an outfit called Marquis Jet Partners. The New York-based firm is carving up and reselling NetJets shares for a young, wealthy client base not ready to buy a whole share.
Actually Marquis Jet is not using Netjets or EJI! They bought block time in our 135 fleet operated by EJM, Executive Jet Management. What they are doing is trying to go around the 135 operators and we, EJA, didn't want to fly these "gray area" trips.
I stand corrected! I was told by the folks at the puzzle palace that we weren't doing them. Maybe just the Hawkers are exempt, but I'm not going out on the limb anymore.
Nice to hear from you again!
