Yes. JetPro carries a robust Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy which includes premises liability, operations liability, and non-owned liability. JetPro also carries a robust workers’ compensation (WC) policy. All of JetPro’s pilots, flight attendants, and technicians (both full time and part time) are fully covered under these policies. Our insurance coverage is designed to work in conjunction with the insurance coverage that our clients already have in place to offer a very conservative and comprehensive solution.
JetPro offers a fixed retainer program in which one of JetPro’s pilots (mutually agreed upon by JetPro and our client) is set up on a fixed monthly retainer, usually 10 days per month but can vary. This pilot is then assigned to one client and agrees to make himself/herself exclusively available to that client during the retainer period.

JetPro crew members use our exclusive TripTrac™ expense reporting mobile app, designed specifically for business aviation. TripTrac™ uses the smartphone’s camera to snap pictures of receipts and transmit everything electronically. No fax machines. No scanners. No hassle. TripTrac™ also send an electronic version of the full expense report back to the employee for their personal records, complete with trip summary information and photos of their receipts.
All of the trips within a month are consolidated into a single monthly invoice for each of our clients. Our TripTrac™ software not only generates the expense reports for our crew members, but it is also used internally to generate the invoices for our clients. With the same detail as shown on the expense reports, our invoices are thorough and audit-friendly.
