One of the major goals of our organization is to providece Private Aircraft Solutions at the highest levels of service and with a minimal negative effect on our environment. While fossil fuels are the only sources of energy in private aviation at this time, a partnership with Terrapass enables us to offset our carbon production on each leg that we fly.
What is a carbon offset?
A carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of one metric ton (2.205 lbs) of carbon dioxide emissions, the principal cause of global warming. Although complex in practice, carbon offsets are fairly simple in theory. If you develop a project that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, every ton of emissions reduced results in the creation of one carbon offset. Project developers can then sell these offsets to finance their projects.
There are hundreds of different types of carbon reduction projects. For example, a wind farm generates clean energy, which reduces carbon emissions from coal-burning power plants. In order to finance its operations, a wind farm can sell these reductions in the form of carbon offsets.
-Each time you fly, you will be presented with a certificate representing the exact carbon offset for your flight.
-Our network was designed to severely reduce the empty legs on flights and in-turn the carbon production that they would have created otherwise.
