SHOULD I PACK A SUITCASE FOR THIS EVENT? Someone is leaving on a private jet at 9:00 PM - will it be you?  Think positive and pack your bag like you know you'll be spending your weekend in fabulous Las Vegas!  

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO PACK?  The 2021 NetJets Experience is a weekend in the entertainment capitol of the world, Las Vegas, highlighted by a Lionel Ritchie concert.  Pack your most fun Las Vegas attire!               

SHOULD I BRING MY SUITCASE INTO THE PARTY?  Due to space constraints and concerns about attendees losing their bags, we ask that all guests leave their suitcases in their cars.  Don’t worry, the lucky winners will be escorted back to their cars to retrieve their bags prior to departure.

CAN I BUY TICKETS AT THE DOOR?  Only 500 tickets are available for our 2021 event, and we expect to sell out!  If tickets should remain, VIP, First Class and Jetsetter tickets will be available at the door.  We'll announce a sellout on our website and social media channels, so get your tickets early or stay tuned to our online channels to confirm availability.

WHAT’S THE DRESS CODE FOR THE HOPE TAKES FLIGHT SUITCASE PARTY?  Cocktail attire!  Remember, you may be getting on a private jet at 9:00 PM, so dress the part!

WHERE EXACTLY IS THE SIGNATURE FLIGHT SUPPORT HANGER AT JOHN GLENN COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT?  The main entrance to Signature Flight Support is located at 4130 E 5th Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43219.  MAP

HOPE TAKES FLIGHT IS A CHARITY EVENT – IS MY TICKET COST TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?  Yes, but not 100%.  Because Hope Takes Flight is a charity event, your donation will be partially tax-deductible, but you must reduce your tax deduction by the cost of the goods/services you receive. We recommend that you consult a tax professional to discuss these matters in detail.

I PURCHASED TICKETS BUT CAN’T ATTEND THE EVENT.  CAN I GET A REFUND?  Our standard policy is that we DO NOT issue refunds or rain checks; all sales are final.
