icholas Air offers a boutique experience compared to private aviation’s larger providers. The company, which was founded in 1997 and remains family-run, owns and operates a fleet of some two dozen aircraft, ranging from the tried-and-true eight-seat Pilatus PC-12 turboprop to the industry-leading Citation Latitude midsize jet, with new offerings on the way. Catering specifically to each passenger’s needs, Nicholas Air goes to great lengths to personalize the travel experience for its jet card, lease, and fractionalownership programs. For its fractional program, called Jet Share, the company says that it limits the number of shareholders for each aircraft, which helps ensure that the crew and Nicholas Air’s service team build personal relationships with owners, who quickly become intimately familiar with the aircraft and cabin experience. Additionally, because Nicholas Air keeps its fleet in operation for no more than five years, each aircraft features the latest technologies, amenities, and design elements. Wi-Fi, a low cabin altitude, and a flat floor are among the benefits for the Citation Latitude. Nicholas Air also works with its members to customize the cabins according to owner preferences over time by adding amenities and adjusting layouts. Nicholas Air gives every jet in the fleet the same livery—a black-and-red paint job on the tail sweeping down to a racing stripe running along the fuselage—to help shareowners feel like each plane is their plane. nicholasair.com u
