Summary: The LEAD1 Association, which represents the athletics directors of the 130-member schools of the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), together with Private Jet Services (PJS), the largest corporate aviation consultancy in North America, initiated a five-year collective air charter purchasing program that will secure air transportation from licensed air carriers and offer participating schools a fixed hourly rate. The program will include rebates of up to 20 percent for teams who participate during a three-year period. The air charter program will launch with 30-and 50-seat passenger planes that have been certified under FAA Part 121 or 135 of Title 14, the highest level of safety ratings given by the FAA.
