Fractional Ownership for Pilots: PlaneSmart! offers a fractional-ownership that caters specifically to pilots who do their own flying. The company handles the "mess and stress" most commonly associated with ownership of smaller, four-seat aircrafts. A fleet of Cirrus SR22-G2 and SR20-G2 aircrafts is available 24/7. The firm provides aircraft insurance, storage, fuel, cleaning, and maintenance. Additionally, pilots receive transitional training to fly the SR22-G2s and SR20-G2s.

One of the perks of this program is not only the guaranteed availability of an airplane upon request, but knowing that it is a well-maintained SR22-G2 or SR20-G2. Cirrus may be the safest small aircraft ever designed. as it has a single-lever power control, a side-yoke control column, a four-point safety harness for each seat, and its overall construction is unparalleled in safety. The acclaimed Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) deploys a parachute that enables a plane to land safely despite any unfavorable circumstances. All SR20s and SR22s are identically equipped with Avidyne "Glass cockpit," dual Garmin GNS-430 GPS, Skywatch traffic avoidance, in-cockpit weather data link, autopilot, and much more.

There is a one-time purchase fee for interest in a specific craft or a block-time license; a one-time fee for pilot transition training; a monthly management fee; and an hourly operational fee.

Texas-based PlaneSmart! is a plain smart choice for pilots who prefer to leave the flying to themselves.

Are there are any people out there who have fractional ownership in a plane or a type of timeshare in a plane; if there are, what their thoughts of them are, esp. the differences between fractional ownership and timeshare? I had a similar ownership with a private boating club some years back and for the most part I was completely satisfied I'm hoping to have that experience again in the air.
