Carbon Share

How it works

When you buy a Carbon Share, you own an interest in a specific serial-numbered aircraft from the Carbon Autonomous fleet. A Carbon Share costs you a fraction of the price of owning a whole aircraft, provides you with greater flexibility than owning a single aircraft and you don’t have to worry about managing it.  Enjoy all the advantages of whole aircraft ownership, without the management responsibilities.


Share sizes start at XX annual flight hours and increase in XX-hour increments. Simply choose the aircraft type(s) and share size(s) that are best for you. Depending on the aircraft type, the minimum commitment ranges from MM to MM months.


If your aircraft type doesn’t suit you for a data gathering need, you may request an exchange to another aircraft type in the Carbon fleet to better satisfy your specific need.


Fractional ownership is similar to full aircraft ownership from a tax and legal standpoint, so purchasing a Carbon Share offers you all the financial benefits of a capital equipment acquisition. Your costs are predictable and include the following:

  • One-time acquisition fee – based upon share size and aircraft type
  • Monthly management fee – covers indirect operating costs such as pilot salaries, training, hangar use, liability insurance, and Owner Services support
  • Occupied hourly fee – covers direct operating costs such as maintenance, landing fees, and standard fuel. You are billed as you fly and only for occupied flight hours – wheels up to wheels down – plus six minutes of taxi time at the beginning and end of each flight
  • Other fees – include hourly fuel fee, fuel tax surcharge, Federal Excise Tax (if applicable),  international fees (as applicable), and ground transportation, if requested
