An inside peek at the private aircraft of Patrick Mahomes

After spending much of its first two decades with a different name and a more local mission, Lenexa,

Kansas-based Airshare is coming to the East Coast, launching its days-based fractional ownership and jet card programs in Florida.

President & CEO John Owen says the private aviation flight provider is merely following its customers.

Currently, one in seven Airshare flights is to or from Florida.

It should also be helpful for its most notable customer, Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, an ambassador for the flight provider. His Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to play at the Jacksonville Jaguars this Fall and Miami is where he won his first of two league championships.

While larger competitors like NetJets and Flexjet solicit customers nationally, Airshare takes a regional approach, despite ranking as the ninth-largest operator in the U.S. based on fractional and charter flight hours.

That footprint includes the likes of Cincinnati, Louisville, Milwaukee and Toronto, Canada.
