Jetcraft goes 'Beyond the Globe' with VR hangar
Jetcraft's virtual hangar gives visitors access to a range of aircraft in a 360° immersive experience. In a busy world, virtual spaces allow customers to view aircraft wherever and whenever suits them.
In a world where access is everything, now Jetcraft clients have it.

Jetcraft has unveiled a virtual hangar that brings together its full Beyond the Globe experience, following on from the opening of its Decentraland-based lounge, where it became the first business aviation specialist to establish a permanent presence in the Metaverse.

President Peter Antonenko says: "In a world dominated by mobile technology and constant activity, having a virtual space at your fingertips is convenient for all our customers. Over the past five years, we've witnessed a remarkable increase in Jetcraft buyers aged under 45, who are embracing business aviation while already being well-versed in up-and-coming tech. We recognised early on the potential of the Metaverse and that offering virtual reality experiences meets the evolving needs of our clients.

"For first-time buyers seeking to explore the world of business jets and find the ideal model for their missions, our virtual hangar offers a swift and accessible means to tour aircraft from anywhere in the world. Jetcraft is well established globally, so our next natural step is to venture Beyond the Globe, giving our customers borderless access to our expertise and aircraft, wherever and whenever suits them best."

Access is via the Jetcraft website, Oculus app or Decentraland lounge. Customers can enter the virtual hangar for an immersive aircraft viewing experience. The company has also opened a virtual and augmented reality booth at the Nice Côte d'Azur General Aviation Terminal from December 2023, giving passers by a taste of its next generation technology.

In addition to expanding in the Metaverse, Jetcraft continues to grow its technical capabilities with JetGPT, which harnesses generative AI to provide faster and smarter insights for clients.
