Frequently Asked Questions

1Are operations single or dual pilot?
All Merlin1 operations are conducted with two pilots working together in a crew environment.
2How do I schedule a flight?
One call to your customer concierge is all it takes!
3What if I want to share the program with family, friends, or colleagues?
You own your flight hours-- use them however you see fit!
4If I sign up today, when will my aircraft be available?
This afternoon!
5If a plane requires maintenance, as a customer am I at risk for this cost?
No. The only variable when it comes to pricing is which aircraft you select. There are no surprises!

On each trip, you can keep the airplane for up to three nights and four days without additional costs except crew expenses.
