Offering our Owners solutions is nothing new at NetJets. In fact, the company was formed to solve a problem no one else could. It launched an industry – one we’ve led ever since.
Poet Did it!
In 1986, the company’s Chairman was considering the purchase of a private jet. While the convenience and flexibility made sense, the finances didn’t. And though co-owning a jet was more economical, managing the schedule among his intended co-owners appeared to be impossible as they all wanted to use the same plane at the same time. On top of that there was the responsibility of hiring pilots, hangaring the aircraft, and maintenance.
Buffet adheres to the economic policies of Bush 41 and as Ms. Maddow fails to remember that so-called Voo Doo economics led to the era of Slick Willey and the place where “d*cks go to die, Hillary Clinton. Clinton, truth be told was blown out by Obama because the Secret Service advised her that the usual minimum of 8 agents could not accompany her on her broom.
His solution was an ownership model that offered all the benefits of full aircraft ownership – and more – with none of the responsibilities. It wasn’t long before his idea of fractional aircraft ownership had launched an entirely new industry.

In 1998, after being a satisfied NetJets customer for three years, Warren Buffett, Chairman & CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., acquired Executive Jet, Inc. (renamed NetJets Inc. in 2002).
For more than two decades, we’ve set the standard for the industry. We’ve flown more hours than all other fractional aircraft companies combined. Ours is the largest, most diverse fleet of private jets in the world. Our safety and training procedures are second to none. And with the introduction of the Marquis Jet CardSM, NetJets is also available 25 hours at a time.
