Empty Percentage

The Company defines Empty Percentage as non-occupied aircraft flight hours related to fulfillment of owner, program charter, and ad hoc charter flights divided by total flight hours related to this customer flying. All hours not related to customer flying, including but not limited to Vaunt, training, and maintenance flights, are excluded from the empty percentage calculation. The Company believes Empty Percentage is a useful metric to measure the efficiency of its fleet.

Demand Mix

The Company defines Demand Mix as the number of flight hours flown by owners or non-owners divided by the total number of flight hours. The Company believes Demand Mix is a useful metric to measure improvement in margin.

Blended Yield

The Company defines Blended Yield as the average occupied price per hour across all Volato product types: owner, program and ad hoc. The Company believes Blended Yield is a useful metric to measure revenue per flight hour.

Light Jet Floating Fleet

The Company defines Light Jet Floating Fleet as the fleet of light jet aircraft flown as directed exclusively by Volato at the end of the quarter.

Total Flight Hours

The Company defines Total Flight Hours as the actual flight time from the moment of aircraft lift-off at the departure airport until it touches ground at the end of a flight as measured by ARGUS. The Company believes Total Flight Hours are a useful metric to measure the usage of our programs and the scale of its fleet and revenue growth.

Light Jet Market Share

The Company defines Light Jet Market Share as the set of flights flown by light jets departing from and/or arriving at a US airport. The Company believes Light Jet Market Shares is a useful metric to measure the size of the business relative to the current market.

Net Promoter Score

The Company defines Net Promoter Score as a measure of customer loyalty, sourced internally from Volato, based on customer surveys conducted post-flight. The Company believes Net Promoter Score is a useful metric to measure the customer experience.

While Volato expects to provide updated information on the above KPIs on a quarterly basis, we are under no obligation, and expressly disclaim any obligation, to provide such information in the future, except as required by law.
