Aircraft management, brokerage, charter and jet card provider TWC Aviation (Booth No. 5334) announced a new program providing six months of aircraft management at no charge for clients who purchase an aircraft through TWC.
Charter/management provider TWC Aviation has launched two new guaranteed revenue programs for charter aircraft owners. The RevenueFlex program provides a guaranteed number of hours but still allows for flexibility so the owner can use the aircraft without blocking out times for it to be available for charter.
RevenueMax is for owners seeking the highest number of charter revenue hours. Under this program, the owner agrees to specific days that the airplane will be available for charter and agrees not to fly in the airplane during those times.
