Europe-based VistaJet is entering the U.S. private-lift market with two unexpected alliances. Jet Aviation’s Flight Services division will operate 12 Bombardier Globals on its behalf while startup membership-based program Wheels Up will offer VistaJet’s Flight Solutions Program (FSP) to U.S. customers.

Wheels Up, which is preparing to launch service with a fleet of Beechcraft King Air 350i twin turboprops later this year, will be VistaJet’s exclusive general sales agent in the U.S. for FSP clients. Its own members will be able to book flights on VistaJet’s U.S.-based fleet.

“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
