Obviously You Want to Take Your Kid to Visit Colleges on a Private Jet

I received the following Press Release yesterday, and I thought it was absolutely beyond fantastic. I remember driving around New England with my father to visit colleges. Apparently I was a sucker.

I reprint here for your (and mostly my) enjoyment: (spoiler alert: “Education has always been a top priority for Magellan Jets.”)

Magellan Jets Announces a 10 Hour Jet Card Designed for College Tours
Leading Private Jet Charter Company Continues to Support Education by Alleviating the Stress of Finding the Right College Campus

BOSTON, MA – April 29, 2014 – Magellan Jets knows that this is a very hectic time of the year for clients with children deciding on which college to attend, as the best way to learn about a college is to visit the campus.

To help alleviate some of the stress of this process, through June 30, Magellan Jets is offering 10 Hour Jet Cards starting at $43,500 to help you and your child see their prospective campus before making their decision. Magellan Jets will take care of the headaches so you can concentrate on what is important…your child’s future.

When you purchase a 1o Hour Card for college tours through Magellan Jets, simply tell them the colleges you and your child would like to visit and their flight support team will help with the logistics. They will organize a seamless itinerary based on your schools and tour dates, and arrange all pick up and drop off car services.

Education has always been a top priority for Magellan Jets. In the past, they have offered an “Experience to Excel” trip which gives back to the local Boston community; providing a deserving family with a summer vacation that otherwise wouldn’t be possible. The Magellan Jets mission was to give the children the trip of a lifetime; the goal being to open their minds to the possibilities that come with success via education, hard work and integrity.

Magellan has annually donated a private jet experience for charity at The Beckett Bowl, a charity bowling event hosted by The Josh Beckett Foundation (where most of the proceeds go to Children’s Hospital). CEO of Magellan Jets, Joshua Hebert, is on the Board of Directors for Raising A Reader MA. This organization help families across Massachusetts develop the literacy routines that can change children’s lives.

Magellan Jets has also provided a Cultural Educational Charter Service in China, the only of its kind in the industry, which transported Chinese students to the U.S. for their higher education, and saw that all of their needs were tended to once they touched down. As the education of this child was extremely important to the family, Magellan Jets understood how important it was to aid the student in acclimating to their new environment and putting their families at ease.
