NEW YORK, October 1, 2019 – Flexjet LLC, a global leader in private jet travel, launched the Flexjet Forum last week. Designed to be a series of intimate and meaningful conversations, Flexjet Forums take place at unique venues with some of the world’s most influential people. Guest speakers are selectively chosen for their accomplishments, expertise, insights and relevance to the interests of Flexjet Owners. The inaugural event featured President George W. Bush in Manhattan on September 25.

“In a digital world, in-person exchanges always rise above. The Flexjet Forum offers the opportunity to personally meet and engage in dialogues on fresh topics with national and global influencers,” said Flexjet Chief Executive Officer Michael Silvestro. “Many of our Owners are remarkable leaders in their own disciplines, so being able to connect them with these distinguished Flexjet Forum guests is priceless.”

During the inaugural Flexjet Forum, Flexjet Chairman Kenn Ricci moderated a wide-ranging and fascinating fireside chat with President Bush on foreign policy, the economy, the importance of freedom in the world, his love of painting and the value of family.

Upcoming Flexjet Forum events will feature accomplished individuals from a variety of disciplines including renowned business innovators, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, authors, academics, politicians and prominent figures from the media, sport, art, film, television and music. The unique settings and intimate audiences will make for encounters even the speakers have never previously experienced.

The Flexjet Forum complements other offerings available only at Flexjet:

  • Red Label by Flexjet, which features flight crews dedicated to a single aircraft, access to the world’s newest shared jet fleet and exclusive, artisan LXi interiors that are the most distinctive ever offered to fractional travelers.

This innovative program features pricing through a days-based model instead of a traditional fractional hours-based one and is aimed at whole aircraft owners looking to supplement their international travel, fractional Owners with high international utilization and corporate flight departments looking to supplement their fleet with smarter, more thoughtful capital deployment.
