To encourage owners to make their aircraft available for charter, Executive Jet Management will waive management and conformity fees for charter-friendly airplanes that are available for more than 200 flight hours per year. Adding an airplane to the EJM charter certificate requires a detailed conformity evaluation that typically costs $5,000 to $14,000, depending on the aircraft's age and the hours needed to conduct the research. The charter management fee is about $2,500 a month.

Besides waiving fees, the Columbus, Ohio-based operator will guarantee charter hours "in some circumstances," said Ronald Silverman, senior vice president for client operations, "depending on the location, how available [the airplane] is to us and the type of airplane." EJM, he added, will not pay owners lower charter-buy rates to offset
the incentives.

“What we need to do is always lean into the future. When the world changes around you and when it changes against you—what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind—you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy. ”
