Regent Jet Launches New Concept in Private Aviation: Private Jet Hedging

Program Is First to Provide a Viable, Cost-Effective Alternative to Marquis Jet, Sentient, Flexjet, NetJets and Other "Jet Card" and Fractional Jet Offerings

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - Regent Jet, Inc. has created a new concept in the private aviation marketplace and a new way for individuals and companies to manage their private aviation requirements. Private Jet Hedging™ gives jet membership program subscribers a way to dramatically reduce their cost-per-hour by hedging against their fixed-rate programs -- taking dead aim at "jet membership" companies such as Marquis Jet, NetJets, Sentient, Flexjet and others.

Private Jet Hedging™ offers clients access to pristine, late-model aircraft through a network of vetted aircraft operators, often at substantial savings over fixed-rate programs. The program delivers the safety and service of fractional aircraft ownership with the freedom, flexibility and choice of on-demand charter.

"Jet membership programs offer a generally high level of service with fixed pricing designed to produce outsized profits on some flights to offset other 'loss-leader' flights," explained Justin Sullivan, managing director, Regent Jet. "Regent Jet advises clients whether their program offers the best value on a trip-by-trip basis. More often than not, we deliver a superior value."

Longtime Bombardier Flexjet cardholder Andrew Czekaj recently partnered with Regent Jet to upgrade from a midsize Lear Jet 60 to a premium, new Gulfstream G-200 for a week-long round trip between Washington, D.C. and Naples, Fla. With the upgrade, Czekaj still saved over $5,000.

"I view my Flexjet card as a 'price ceiling,' then look to the Regent Jet team to drive down the cost, or source a nicer aircraft -- or both!" said Czekaj. "Regent Jet takes exceptionally good care of me, my family, and my business partners, with a level of personalized service and choice that I could never expect from a fractional."
