The extraordinary care of NetJets

Service and maintenance

Because NetJets continuously invests in newer aircraft, those aircraft have warranties from the manufacturers. A reliable fleet and strong partnerships with the aircraft manufacturers help ensure our private jets meet our exacting aircraft safety standards at all times.

  • For 18 consecutive years, we have been recognized for the proactive and extensive training of NetJets Aviation Maintenance Technicians with the FAA Employer Diamond Award of Excellence. Learn more.
  • We are always in complete control of our fleet. We never lend our aircraft to other private charters, and our jets are secure at all times, preventing unauthorized access to any part of our operation.
  • NetJets’ spotless, state-of-the-art, 88,000 square-foot, FAA-certified facility in Columbus, Ohio, is available at all times for maintenance.



Cautious aviation balances have proven approaches with innovative, incremental improvements. We’ve spent more than a half century perfecting private jet travel, and we apply that experience and insight to create even better technologies and solutions.
Behind the beauty of our aircraft is the brilliance of our proprietary IntelliJet® II reservation and flight-tracking system. We use decades of historical data to anticipate problems before they occur.
We monitor and analyze crewmember alertness based on circadian rhythms, sleep and travel patterns, and other variables. So that every flight is your pilots’ best flight. 
NetJets flight operations are in constant communication with our pilots. Our Waypoint app assures they have the flight data and Owner preferences they need, without fail.
FAA Partnership
We’re privileged to assist in raising safety standards and advancing industry protocols. Most recently, we've supported the FAA in NextGen concept research, evaluation and implementation of a massive transformation of the U.S. air transportation system.
It’s not enough to have skilled, certified professionals in our facilities. This program connects them directly with OEMs to ensure they have the right part at the right time, every time.

The unseen perfection of

Daily operations

Our flight operations are achieved quietly, behind the scenes, with exacting efficiency and accountability. The NetJets Operations Center is fully staffed 24/7, awaiting our Owners’ requests at any time.

The reassurance of constant weather monitoring

Our FAA-approved meteorologists monitor weather conditions around the world, customizing flight paths and departure windows to ensure the safest, most comfortable routing. These are full-time, in-house staff who sit in our flight center and coordinate directly with our Owner Services and Operations teams.

A Higher Standard of Aviation Safety, Privacy, and Awareness

Dual-release dispatch
Before every departure, we require mutual agreement between a licensed dispatcher and our pilots. This protocol exceeds standard practice and empowers our crew to provide an extra level of safety.
Medical preparedness
In the event of an emergency, our partnership with MedAire® means first responding care from our rigorously trained crew is backed by on-call doctors and nurses available 24/7.
We constantly monitor worldwide geopolitics and work with multiple public and private sources of intelligence, including the U.S. National Security Agency, to adjust to changes that might impact NetJets Owners, crew and aircraft.
All flight plans honor our Owners’ need for discretion and confidentiality. NetJets' aircraft tail numbers assure anonymity of those aboard.
Data security
Our in-house data security teams focus on protecting data.
Safety Management System Program
NetJets is the first private aviation company to reach the highest level of the FAA’s Safety Management System Program. Learn more.
