Disclaimer Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements Some statements in this Presentation may be considered “forward-looking statements” for purposes of the Federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements generally relate to management’s current expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions, strategies, or projections about future events or future financial or operating performance. For example, statements regarding anticipated growth in the industry in which Volato operates and anticipated growth in the demand for Volato’s services, and projections of Volato’s future financial results or other metrics are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intends,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” project,” “should,” “would,” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. You should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Forward-looking statements are based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by management, are inherently uncertain. Factors that may cause actual result to differ from current expectations include, but are not limited to: changes to existing applicable laws or regulations; the possibility that Volato may be adversely affected by economic, business, or competitive factors; Volato’s estimates of expenses and profitability; the evolution of the markets in which Volato competes and Volato’s ability to enter new markets effectively; the ability of Volato to implement its strategic initiatives and continue to innovate its existing services; the impact of government and other responses to public health crisis such as pandemics on Volato’s business; and other risks and uncertainties set forth in the section entitled “Risk Factors” and Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements in Volato’s Form 8-K dated December 7, 2023 and those risk factors set forth in subsequent filings Volato may make from time-to-time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Volato cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. Nothing in this Presentation should be regarded as a representation by any person that the forward-looking statements set forth herein will be achieved or that any of the contemplated results of the forward-looking statements will be achieved. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. Volato does not undertake any duty to update these forward-looking statements. Financial Information; Non-GAAP Financial Measures This Presentation includes unaudited financial information, which is subject to further review and adjustment, and may differ from the financial information that will be subsequently filed in a periodic report by Volato with the SEC. As a result, the historic financial information contained in this Presentation and any estimates or projections relying on this financial information may change and constitutes forward-looking information. The Presentation also includes certain financial measures not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and other metrics derived therefrom. The non- GAAP financial measures are not measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing Volato’s financial results. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operations, or other measures of profitability, liquidity, or performance under GAAP. Volato’s presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Volato believes that the use of these non- GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of business judgments by management about which items of income and expense are included or excluded in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. 2

Disclaimer (Cont’d) This Presentation also includes certain projections of non-GAAP financial measures. Due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of financial information, together with the fact that some information may be excluded because it is not ascertainable or accessible, Volato is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures without unreasonable effort. Consequently, no disclosure of estimated comparable GAAP measures is included and no reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures is included. Use of Projections This Presentation contains financial forecasts for Volato with respect to certain financial results of Volato. Volato’s independent auditor has not audited, studied, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to the projections for the purpose of their inclusion in this Presentation. Accordingly, they did not express an opinion or provide any other form of assurance with respect thereto for the purpose of this Presentation. These projections are forward-looking statements and should not be relied upon as being necessarily indicative of future results. In this Presentation, certain of the above-mentioned projected information has been provided for purposes of providing comparisons with historical data. The assumptions and estimates underlying the prospective financial information are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, economic, and competitive risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the prospective financial information. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the prospective results are indicative of the future performance of Volato or the actual results will not differ materially from those presented in the prospective financial information. Inclusion of the prospective financial information in this Presentation should not be regarded as a representation by any person that the results contained in the prospective financial information will be achieved. Industry and Market Data In this Presentation, Volato relies on and refers to certain information and statistics obtained from third-party sources which it believes to be reliable.

Fly Better, Fly Smarter, Fly Volato Volato brings the benefits of whole aircraft ownership to the fractional customer, providing Volato residual fleet availability which is filled through a unique suite of products and innovative software. 6

Business Model: Highly Scalable and Cash-Generative Business Model Volato secures fleet aircraft orders from top-tier OEMs, which are then sold, often prior to delivery, through fractionalizing. Subsequently, the company operates these aircraft on 5-year contracts, aiming to maximize their utilization and profit potential. 1. Operates largest floating fleet of HondaJets and has secured app. 35% of HondaJet production through 2026 in a tight supply market. 2. Incentivized underutilization by fractional owners provides excess availability1 at a favorable market financing rate. 3. Utilizing a commercial multi-product strategy this excess availability is filled with higher margin non-owner usage. 7 Notes: 1. Excess availability is is the aircraft availability provided to the operator that is in excess of the industry standard for a fractional owner share. Volato benefits from excess availability of ~70% compared to the traditional industry average of 5-10%.

Competitive Landscape: Innovative Model Sets Volato Apart Volato offers a superior lower-risk, higher-return strategy by combining the strengths of existing models. 8 Low Risk – Aircraft paid for by fractional customers and they provide the vast majority of flight demand. Low Margin - Owners fly at lower preferred usage rates. Low Return – Requires additional scale. High Risk – Capital intensive, aircraft on balance sheet. High Margin – Able to charge more for service to non-owner fliers. Return can be High – With near perfect execution. Low Risk– Aircraft paid for by fractional customers in an asset light business model. High Margin– Flight operation margins are higher due to non-owner fliers filling excess availability, lifting overall margin. High Return – Contribution from both fractional sales and ongoing flight operations. TRADITIONAL FRACTIONAL OTHER MODELS

Core Floating Fleet Part 135 Charter Operation Proprietary Software Business Model: Focused on Fleet Growth & Maximizing Utilization Volato’s business model secures excess fleet availability at below market levels of financing and fills the availability with higher yielding 3rd party usage sourced via a robust commercial strategy focused on maximizing contribution and profitability. 1 2BUILDING FLEET & AVAILABILITY MAXIMIZING FLEET UTILIZATION • Building and controlling a substantial fleet through an innovative business model at an attractive cost of financing. • Comprised of fractional and leased aircraft in select aircraft types per cabin class. Volato’s Fractional Program • 5-year contracted recurring revenue. • Unique revenue share business model creates alignment of interest for high utilization. • Resulting in fractional owners being incentivized to underutilize their share - generating excess fleet availability. • Guaranteed aircraft availability. Complimented by Leased Aircraft • In a tight aircraft supply market, leased aircraft provide excess availability with covered fixed costs. • Not obligated to fly, so additional aircraft are available to Volato at a variable cost. • Volato operates a robust commercial strategy to fill the excess fleet availability with higher contribution non- owner flight usage. Increasing the blended achieved yield from flight operations. • Targeting different customer segments through a product suite of programs including Volato Go!, Volato Insider Deposit Program, and ad-hoc charter. • All non-Guaranteed Availability products. Reducing operational stress and minimizing off-fleeting. • Utilizes proprietary software to implement dynamic pricing to drive demand and fleet positioning. Driving Margin Expansion through Increasing Productivity & Efficiency 18 3

Volato's fractional model integrates the benefits of both traditional fractional programs and whole aircraft ownership. Traditional Fractional Model Whole Aircraft Ownership Traditional fractional models are timeshare based. Owners select fractional size based on their anticipated usage and receive a set number of entitled hours per annum over a 5-year contract. Purchase an aircraft outright and hire pilots directly or work with an aircraft management company. Advantages • Fully managed – make a reservation and fly. • Have access to a fleet rather than an individual plane. • Capital efficient – no need to purchase the whole aircraft. • Access bonus depreciation. Disadvantages • Timeshare based approach. • Expensive if you fly more or less than entitled hours. • No revenue generating abilities. • Bonus depreciation limited to % of usage deemed for business. Advantages • Fly as much as you want with no restrictions. • Ability to charter out when not personally flying and earn revenue. • Access bonus depreciation. Disadvantages • Capital inefficient – aircraft is underutilized. • Access only to a single aircraft – can't fly if aircraft is in maintenance. • Limited economies of scale. Fly as much or as little as you want • Fractional owners fly unlimited hours regardless of ownership fraction size. • Have access to a fleet, not just their specific aircraft. • Owners may choose fractional size based on personal financial factors rather than just anticipated usage. Often incentivizing larger share purchases than would be anticipated in a traditional fractional program. • Underutilization by owners provide Volato with excess fleet availability that can be directed toward higher yielding non-owners. Earn revenue from the asset • Owners are compensated monthly through distribution of eligible charter revenue from their aircraft, with additional incentives for owners of larger shares. Differentiated ownership structure • Ownership structured through a membership interest in an LLC that owns the specific aircraft. • Allows for 100% of the aircraft rental usage usage to be deemed business usage – protects owners from liability. Volato Fractional Solution Taking the best of both Fly as much or as little as you want Earn Revenue from the asset Differentiated Ownership Structure 19 Volato’s Fractional Program: A Superior Fractional Owner Proposition 1

Monthly Management Fee • Aircraft on a 5-year management contract. • Monthly management fee pulled via direct debit. • Priced to at least cover the fixed operating costs of the aircraft (pilots, insurance, ancillary costs etc.) Note: 1. Based on 600 revenue hours annual utilization. 0.87% at 800 annual revenue hours. Fractional owners are financing Volato’s fleet… Secured on a long-term basis At a lower cost of capital than leasing or acquiring aircraft At lower risk Asset light business model Fractional owners enter 5-year management contracts 0.66% monthly operating lease rate1 compared to a 1.0-1.2% industry market rate Revenue share only payable on occupied revenue flight hours A win-win business model for Volato and fractional owners, that provides Volato a cost-effective financing source for fleet availability. Volato’s Fractional Program: A More Profitable & Lower Risk Model for Volato; the Operator 20 Multiple predictable recurring cash flows: Initial Fractional Share Purchase • Recurring Revenue Stream. • Industry standard: 80% of fractional customers re-up and buy another share at program end. • Selling of the aircraft is recurring in nature, with a 5-year. purchase cycle and est. sub. 20% churn. Ongoing Flight Usage • Owners are charged a fixed hourly rate and fuel is passed through at cost. • When owners are not flying, aircraft is chartered to non-owners, typically at substantially higher hourly flight rates. 1

50 hrs. non-owner $6,500 per hr. 750 hrs. owner $4,700 per hr. Average Occupied Yield $4,800 per hr. 504 hrs. non-owner (63%)2 $6,500 per hr. 296 hrs. owner (37%) $4,700 per hr. Average Occupied Yield $5,800 per hr. Volato’s Fractional Program: Creating Excess Unused Fleet Availability 21 • Higher proportion of non-owner usage. • Model leads to higher average occupied yields and profitability from long tail flight operations revenue streams. Volato’s fractional model incentivizes owners to acquire a larger share than required by anticipated usage, providing Volato excess aircraft availability ~70% compared to the traditional industry average of 5-10%1 per year per Fractional Aircraft. • Share size purchase decision is based upon anticipated usage. • Majority flying done by owners which have a lower hourly rate. • Meaning the averaged occupied yield is anchored by the owner rate. Volato’s Fractional Program: Occupied Usage Achieve 21% higher yield, & higher contribution Traditional Fractional Models: Occupied Usage Lower margin flight operations Sources: 1. Industry average is 800 occupied hours per year 2. Target we are working towards at scale The excess fleet availability is filled with non-owner flying, providing a substantial advantage over traditional models: 1 Demand Mix Q1 2022 Q2 2022 Q3 2022 Q4 2022 Q1 2023 Q2 2023 Q3 2023 Q4 2023 Owner 91% 88% 80% 67% 55% 45% 55% 52% Non-owner( Program & Ad Hoc) 9% 12% 20% 33% 45% 55% 45% 48%

Maximizing Fleet Utilization: Commercial Strategy Volato implements a commercial strategy serving multiple distinct customer & market segments through a multi-product suite of non-guaranteed availability offerings designed to increase fleet utilization. 22 Owner Usage Jet Card/Deposit Charter Empty Legs Product Suite • We use the analogy of filling a jar (representing our fleet availability) with different sized balls (different market segments). • If we fill solely with large balls (owner flights) there will still be empty space (fleet scheduling availability). • Our suite of product offerings provides the capability to better fill the jar. We group our product offerings under four market segments : Owner Usage, Charter, Jet Card/Deposit & Empty Leg flights. • By generating as much demand as practical from each of these market segments for these products, and by selectively accepting demand (with the help of software) to saturate our fleet availability, we seek to maximize profitability. • Pricing as reflected in yield is not necessarily equivalent to margin. • E.g., selling an empty leg produces less revenue, but since it’s filling a leg that would otherwise fly at no revenue, the revenue represents pure incremental margin. 2 The Jar Represents Total Fleet Availability F ill in g Ja r = In cr ea se d F le et U til iz at io n Expanding Fleet = Larger Jar

Maximizing Fleet Utilization: Using Technology to Price Efficiently & Drive Demand Volato is systematically expanding fleet and geographic operational coverage, through traditional commercial aviation dynamic pricing strategies. 23 • Operates a floating fleet with no central base for either aircraft or crews, supporting a primary service area encompassing the continental US. • Utilizes dynamic pricing for non-owner flying via proprietary software where pricing varies by market, date, day of week, and other itinerary attributes. • Pricing strategy reflects a design objective to concentrate flying in higher-traffic geographical regions, increasing utilization and customer availability while reducing empty leg flying. • Overtime, increasing fleet size will increase network density, further improving operational and commercial performance metrics. • 71% of total flight activity within targeted zones are within the non-stop range of the HondaJet Elite II. 2

Maximizing Fleet Utilization: Product Suite Supporting Non-Owner Usage Demand Volato simultaneously addresses multiple market segments with a differentiated product set. The aim is to maximize revenue by taking advantage of varying willingness to pay based on product attributes while minimizing spoiled fleet availability. RETAIL & WHOLESALE SPOT MARKET • Increase unit revenue based on higher yields and lower empty legs for ad-hoc charter. DAILY DEALS P R O G R A M S BROKER REWARDS E M P T Y L E G S A D H O C C H A R T E R 2 24 • $5,500+ per hour depending on market demand and operational need. Will not be sold at unprofitable levels. • Drive charter hours through direct broker engagement; establish wholesale relationships to drive more business & higher margin. • No anticipated change from charter market spot pricing + extra 5% due to sharing unlocked marketplace fee. • Ad hoc retail market flights in highest visibility markets with simple all-in-pricing and booking process. • Direct digital and targeted outreach to retail market. • $5,000+ per hour with more restrictive passenger terms & conditions. • Deposit account for flight hours with no guaranteed availability, but schedule-definite flying once booked. • Market need for relationship-seeking customers who want a more traditional yet low commitment program for schedule- definite flying. • $6,000+ per hour with greater capacity protection and recovery thresholds. • Empty leg flights within 7 days of departure; ability to monetize existing empty leg inventory and target price-sensitive customers digitally daily. • $6,000+ per hour decreasing to $1,000 per hour as a function of decreasing time to departure. • Annual subscription program to access empty leg flights within one day of departure; ability to monetize remaining empty leg flight inventory with mobile subscription targeting new customer segment. • $0 yield tied to specific flight hour, but significant financial gain from high-margin subscriptions.

33 2024 is a pivotal year as Volato is positioned to benefit from several maturing strategic initiatives, earning substantial margin from new aircraft deliveries, and unlocking operational efficiencies through the network effect. Clear Path To Profitability: Through a Continued Focus on Strong Execution Increase Fleet Utilization • Continue executing on commercial strategy and expand non-owner usage on the fleet. • Ramping up Insider Program client relationships. • Volato provides pre-delivery owners the option to start flying on the fleet pre-delivery – increasing utilization. Expand Fleet • 9-12 new aircraft deliveries expected in 2024, compared to only 3 in 2023. • Continue to opportunistically expand fleet through other means; i.e., leasing or aircraft management. Unlock Operational Efficiencies • There is an inherent cost to supporting air carrier operations and in 2023 Volato invested in front- loaded operations. • As the fleet increases economies of scale benefits are unlocked. • Supported by our proprietary software that drives productivity and operational efficiencies. • A larger fleet and increased utilization results in scheduling efficiencies and a reduction in empty-leg flying. 1 2 3

Clear Path To Profitability: Breakeven from Flight Operations • As Volato increases both the size of HondaJet fleet and usage per aircraft the business moves towards breakeven. • Breakeven is impacted by the mix of fractional and leased aircraft in the fleet. • Graph does not include the impact of fractional aircraft sales which in 2024 will deliver $99M-$145M of revenue and $22M - $32M of margin. Management believes with current cash on hand, and 2024 forecasted sales we have sufficient cash to reach profitability.

Clear Path To Profitability: Generating significant cashflow by growing the floating fleet by est. 43% in 20241 35 Monthly Management Fee • HondaJets o Revenue: $80K per month per plane • Gulfstream G280s o Revenue: $300K per month per plane 2024 Fractional Share Purchase • HondaJets o Revenue: $72M to $90M o Margin: $16M to $20M • Gulfstream G280s o Revenue: $27M to $55M o Margin: $6M to $12M Ongoing Flight Usage • HondaJets o Revenue: Average $250k per month per plane • Gulfstream G280s o Revenue: Average $480k per month per plane HondaJet Elite II • 8 to 10 planes to be added in 2024 • Deliveries expected throughout 2024 Gulfstream G280s • 1 to 2 planes to be added in 2024 • Deliveries expected second half 2024 Volato is anticipating between 9-12 aircraft to be delivered in 2024, contributing $99M-$145M of revenue and $22M - $32M of margin to Volato from their sale through fractionalizing, and significant ongoing revenue from the 5-year contracted monthly management fee and flight operations. Notes: 1. Calculated by the mid-point of est. deliveries divided by the existing floating fleet size of ((9+12)/2) / 24 = 43.5% 2.
