We are honored that the C.V. Whitney Cup will be presented this year by Sentient Jet, which is renowned for its excellence, performance, safety, and exceptional customer service.

Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation Capital company, is pleased to announce they have renewed and expanded their sponsorship commitment at the International Polo Club (IPC). For the 2016 winter high-goal polo season, the prestigious C.V. Whitney Cup will be presented by Sentient Jet, along with awarding their second annual Sentient Jet Challenge, and the all-new Sentient Soar and Score Challenge at halftime.

“Sentient Jet is the leading independent jet card provider in the world and the alignment of our brands creates a winning partnership,” said John Wash, IPC president. “We are honored that the C.V. Whitney Cup will be presented this year by Sentient Jet, which is renowned for its excellence, performance, safety, and exceptional customer service.”

As the Exclusive Private Aviation Partner of the International Polo Club Palm Beach for the second year in a row, Sentient Jet will offer special benefits for both Sentient Jet Cardholders and International Polo Club members, as well as sponsor events throughout the 2016 season. New this year is the exciting Sentient Soar and Score Challenge, which will take place during the halftime divot stomp. A spectator will be selected to try their hand at scoring a goal through the polo field’s goalpost with a mallet and ball at Sunday matches. For those with enough prowess to succeed, Sentient Jet will donate $1,000 to a local charity.

“Wellington is the premier equestrian enclave for polo in the world, and we are thrilled to bring together the excellence of the Sentient partner with the performance of the elite polo players that excel at this club, along with their sophisticated spectators,” said Andrew Collins, president of Sentient Jet. “We are honored to present the 26-goal C.V. Whitney Cup on March 6 at the International Polo Club. We look forward to offering our cardholders an unmatched experience and exclusive benefits during the season.”

Sentient Jet will also be sponsoring the Sentient Jet Challenge that will take place during high-goal season (March through April 2016). At the close of the polo season, the team patron who scores the most goals during the two-month, high-goal season will be awarded a Sentient Jet Flight Card. The prize for the winner will be presented at the finals of the U.S. Open Polo Championship® on Sunday, April 24. In addition, Sentient Jet Cardholders will enjoy VIP box seat tickets to watch polo matches throughout the season in comfort and style, while experiencing best-in-class hospitality. International Polo Club members will receive a special Jet Card offer to fly with Sentient Jet and experience the flexibility and convenience of private air travel from the inventor of the Jet Card model.

Sentient Jet offers its 25-Hour Jet Card in four jet size options, allowing clients to purchase flight time on light, mid, super-mid, and heavy aircraft, as well as in two age classes (Preferred and Select). Sentient Jet Cardholders receive a rare combination of industry-leading service at a tremendous value, complete with a one-year lock on both hourly rates and fuel surcharges, with the added bonus of 15 percent discounts on hourly pricing for qualifying travel – making Sentient’s flexible Jet Card solution the most intelligent and sensible choice in private air travel.
