In my first 4 months as a member, I joined 7 waitlists and took 6 flights. The last flight I took was from Las Vegas, NV to Eugene, OR. There was a Michelin star Indonesian restaurant in Eugene I wanted to try, so me and a friend met up in Vegas and took a Vaunt flight. That easy.

The first time I flew with Vaunt I actually took a round trip. I saw a flight to Miami on a Wednesday and so I decided to go see some business partners. I wasn’t planning to go but that’s also the beauty of Vaunt. I then saw a return flight with Vaunt on Friday, so I canceled my commercial flight and just did the entire trip in style. The experience was everything you would expect when flying private.

I’m a retired detective and I’m using Vaunt as a reason to get out and travel more. I became a member last month and my wife still doesn’t know. I’m waiting to surprise her with a flight. She’s never flown private before so it’s the perfect surprise.
