Atlanta, Georgia-headquartered fractional operator Volato has taken delivery of its first HondaJet Elite II aircraft, with another arriving at the end of the month. These aircraft are in addition to the 25 HondaJet Elite II aircraft order placed towards the end of last year. This new model means members of Volato’s fractional ownership programme now have access to a HondaJet fleet and the Elite II aircraft.

The Elite II has an expanded range, higher gross weight and additional fuel capacity, so users will be benefit from greater mission capability and more flexibility than before.

Fractional shares in a Volato jet allow members to take full advantage of all the benefits of owning a private aircraft without the stress of managing the upkeep and logistics. Available shares range from 1/16 to a whole aircraft; each with a five year programme term. Owners can fly as little or as much as they like, and earn a revenue share every time their aircraft flies a live mission.

“Volato seeks to uphold our market standing in providing the most innovative solutions to private aviation,” says CEO Matt Liotta. “Every business decision is made with our customers at the core, and we are ecstatic to bring this model to market for those interested in flying on the most innovative aircraft of its kind. Volato fractional owners seek the highest safety standards and best customer experience, and this is what we continue to deliver.”

The company now has more than 40 HondaJets currently in operation or ordered, and recently announced a fleet order of Gulfstream G280 aircraft configured for 10 passengers.

Other extensions of Volato’s service include the Stretch jet card and aircraft management programme. Volato operates nationally with a floating fleet and has bases in Atlanta Georgia; St Augustine and Fort Lauderdale in Florida; Baltimore, Maryland; Houston, Texas; and Carlsbad, California.
