Wheels Up has been likened to the Uber of aviation travel. Their fleet of private jets are transforming how executives travel. Come learn how a new firm was able to secure the likes of Rickie Fowler and Serena Williams as its ambassadors, as well as sponsor the 2015 Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah.

Wheels Up has leveraged interesting concepts to differentiate themselves and this discussion will highlights some of the successes and ideas that didn't work so well. 

About Wheels Up :: Wheels Up is a revolutionary membership-based private aviation company that eliminates fixed costs and provides unparalleled flexibility created and led by Kenny Dichter, the Founder of Marquis Jet and innovator of the first 25-hour fractional jet card. Wheels Up has developed proprietary cutting-edge applications and offers unrivaled personalized service, providing members with a unique high-tech and high-touch experience. With a modest initiation fee and reasonable annual dues, Wheels Up is designed to appeal to individuals and corporations currently flying privately. With an 8,760-hour culture (referencing the number of hours in a year), Wheels Up membership includes Wheels Down, a corresponding lifestyle concierge service engaging members through exclusive offerings such as special programs around major sporting events, intimate concerts, culinary experiences and opportunities to meet luminaries from the worlds of entertainment, politics and business.
