Both an aircraft and a home are a sanctuary for the owner. A home in a remote location can become accessible simply by the means of your own aircraft. The plane becomes an extension of your real estate.
If you own a second, third or forth home in Aspen or Snowmass and live in the US or an international location, you will know that commercial airline access to Aspen can be time consuming. But what makes Aspen unique is that Sardy Field airport is located no more than 10 minutes from most homes in the area.
What good is a $30 million mansion if it takes you a half a day to get to it? Weekend use might become impossible or more effort than enjoyment. It takes tow hours to get from California to Aspen and Texas locations are only an hour and a half away.
With most residences in Aspen a mere 5-10 minutes from the airport you can snuggle up at the fireplace before commercial travelers had a chance to collected their luggage. Aspen has become what it is not least because of its terrific airport access. Sardy Field is the lifeline to the real world. Properties in the area have become attractive not only for their location but also for their accessibility.
On holiday weekends Aspen is home to one of the busiest private airports in the nation. The airport regularly runs out of space to park incoming private jets and owners have to park them at close by regional airports after getting dropped off in Aspen.
Stepping onto your private jet marks the start of your vacation and not the beginning of an airport ordeal. Check-in, security controls, boarding, not enough legroom the list goes on. The moment you board your own jet you are entering your home in the skies with a smooth flight to your home below Colorado skies.
