How To Book Private Jet Charters For Less

Are You Looking To Acquire A Private Plane Flight?

If you would like to fly in a private jet, one that you can charter for a business meeting, there are many ways that you can save money. Essentially, you are renting a jet for a few hours in order to travel with clients, to a business meeting, or perhaps you just want to see how it feels. They are typically owned by companies that have decades of experience, pilots that are fully accredited by the NBAA. You can contact them to get a free consultation, check out the latest models that are available, just to see which one you would like to reserve. Here are a few tips on how you can get private jet charters that will definitely cater to your needs, allowing you to rent one of their exceptional jets for an affordable price.

Finding The Best Ones Available

Also commonly referred to as a business jet, these private jets are used to transport small groups of people. Due to the cost, and their small size, they are usually used by large corporations or individuals that have quite a bit of money. You will often see express parcel deliveries using these jets, and armed forces or government officials using them as well. As of 2016, there are over 20,000 business jets worldwide, of which 1/10 of those are currently for sale in Europe and North America.

 

Saving Money On Chartering A Private Jet

You can save quite a bit of money on these private jets if you are able to shop around. This is a $22 billion dollar industry, a number that reflects how much people were actually billed. New jets are always being made with over 700 being delivered to customers worldwide annually. It involves quite a bit of construction, and due to the low volume of the production of these planes, they can be very expensive and also take up to three years to complete.

 

Finding The Right Chartering Company

In the same way that yachts are chartered for fishing trips, or scenic journeys on the ocean, jets also are chartered by people that want to fly in style. These companies will handle all of the maintenance associated with these jets including major and minor problems that can be fixed at the facility, and will provide the best pilots available for all of the flights. You can obtain excellent deals by comparing different private jet charters. The prices that they charge, and the availability of the jets that they advertise, must be verified before you decide to book any of them. This will allow you to get a good price on the jets that are being used to transport people for both business and leisurely purposes,  and you can choose from some of the most popular jets that are available today.

 

Which Jets Are The Most Popular?

CitationMustang-N324HS-130Starting with some of the lightest jets that are flown, including the Cessna Citation Mustang, you can choose based upon the cost per hour or the size of the jet itself. Other jets include the Eclipse 500, the Phenom 100, and the popular Honda Jet. If you were to actually buy one of these aircraft, they are priced in between 8 and 9 million dollars. The famous Learjet is priced much higher, well over $11 million, and is able to get that price due to the name. There are also mid sized jets, super midsized, large and VIP airliners. Many of these can be found for rent at a local private jet charter service that can give you a great deal on the  ones that will be available. Since the average cost of chartering a jet is just over $8000 per hour, you need to be selective when choosing one for the trip you are planning. It is obviously a decision based upon luxury and convenience, one that is reserved for either the affluent or for corporations, so if you do have the money to charter one of these luxury jets, make sure that you get the one that you actually want.

Around the field at AirVenture Oshkosh

I’ve often found that AirVenture is like drinking from the proverbial firehose. Until I look back through my notebook, the show is a bit of a blur. We’ve reported many of the storylines from the show, but I found a few nuggets in my notebook I think are worth sharing:

EpicLT

Epic Aircraft is fully on the certified aircraft track. Its E1000 started life as the LT, a kit-built turbo-prop single. A total of 47 kits are flying today. The final seven are being built now, and the kit program will be no more after the 54th LT is completed, according to Mike Schrader, Epic’s director of sales and marketing.

Cirrus Aircraft casts a wide (and deep) shadow in the industry. At an Oshkosh-eve press event, Cirrus Aircraft’s Director of Flight Operations Travis Klumb said 53 CAPS (Cirrus Airframe Parachute Systems) events had returned 107 people to their families. Further, Cirrus has good reason to crow about a fatal accident rate below the industry average. The turning point was three accidents in a 24-hour period back in 2011. An emphasis on training for your lifestyle has paid huge dividends.

Avidyne has taken a page from the tech industry playbook and opened up access to the software that drives its products. Its SDK (software developer kit) comes in two flavors: Tier 1 is read-only, while Tier 2 will be able to read and write back to the the IFD540/440. The significance? Just like in the smartphone marketplace, there are huge numbers of people programming truly creative applications, and that’s what Avidyne is planning to power.

Not one, but four: Wipaire received 54 applications for the Ben Wiplinger Memorial Seaplane Rating Scholarship. This inaugural scholarship was supposed to be for one worthy applicant, but the scholarship committee had such a problem deciding, they found it easier to just pony up for four scholarships rather than choose just one recipient. “This is our little way of giving back,” said Wipaire president Chuck Wiplinger.

DeltaHawk-V4-Callouts

Delivering new technology to the aviation market is hard. It is nearly impossible if not properly funded. That funding — along with engineering and manufacturing experience — is what the Ruud family of Racine, Wisc., brings to DeltaHawk Engines. Alan and Christopher Ruud (father and son, respectively) took control of DeltaHawk Engines in May with a plan to take its “jet-fueled piston” engine and bring it to market in 2016. More powerplant options are a good thing. The fact the engine uses lead-free fuel is a great thing.

Speaking of lead-free fuel, did you hear about Swift Fuels‘ new 94-octane aviation-grade fuel?. If you have an auto-gas STC, you’re all set, assuming the fuel is available near you. I’ll ask the question for you…How much does it cost? Swift Fuels’ Jon Ziulkowski pulled up the AirNav website and showed me KRMY (Marshall, Mich.). Cost for 94 MON (listed as mogas on the website) is $4.15. 100LL is $4.80. At KAID (Anderson, Ind.), 94 MON is $4.25 while 100LL is $5.05. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Burt Rutan returned to AirVenture this year. A Theatre in the Woods session with brothers Burt and Dick Rutan and test pilot Mike Melville packed the house. A few quick and entertaining take-aways: The Rutan Aircraft Factory (RAF) created 367 aircraft concepts and flew 45. Dick said, “At Burt’s forum, a guy walked in and asked me, ‘Is Burt Rutan here?’ I looked at him and said, ‘I used to sleep with him, does that count?’” In response, Burt said, “What’s a fighter pilot [Dick was a fighter pilot, by the way] use for birth control? His personality.”

Unrelated: Dick Rutan likes to speak in the third person. After a few minutes I put down my notebook so I could enjoy the presentation along with everyone else. I hope EAA Video shares the evening with everyone.

The EAA Innovations Center was half filled with remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA) displays and vendors. Each time I walked through the tent, the RPA side of the house was packed with people. The outdoor RPA flying cage was a-buzz with activity and the seating areas (even those in the sun) were constantly packed. No doubt there is interest in this segment of aerospace.

Turbulence_LancairLegacy

Turbulence is the name of a turbine-powered Lancair Legacy. I snapped a photo of it and posted it to our Facebook with the comment, “Turbine-powered Lancair Legacy at OSH15. I wonder if it’s fast?” To date, it has reached more than 450,000 people, shared more than 1,700 times, and generated more than 420 comments. It’s the only one in the world and according to owner-builder Mark Patey, has a dual spar, 33+% larger tail and reinforced everything. It has been flutter tested to 450 knots, but it flies exactly like a Legacy. Oh, and it is gorgeous.

If you haven’t been, put AirVenture on your calendar and make it happen. Next year’s show is July 25-31.

What’s the big deal about private jet charters?

Setting aside the jet charter coolness factor! Jet charters can even make the CFO or your wife happy!

There are many different ways in which you can get to many different places in the world, but the best way by far is by private jet charters.

What’s the big deal?

Do you like your time to be wasted? Let’s say you have to get to your destination for an important business trip or you are off to a vacation. If you have flown by a commercial airliner before, then surely you would understand how badly these flights can be delayed.

When flying with these commercial flights, you must be prepared to wait endlessly as you never know when these flights will be delayed – which is mostly the case with such flights. At such times, it can be extremely frustrating as you would want to get to your destination on time and with peace and comfort – but none of this is going to happen when your flight is delayed.

No delays with private jet charters

Unlike is the case with commercial airlines, when you fly via private jets, you need not even think about your flight being delayed. This is simply because you are the boss and you get to fix the time when you want your flight to take off and leave for your chosen destination.

You do not even have to worry about whether or not you will get a ticket. All you have to do is just pick up the phone and call up the private flight company and tell them your requirements. You can even chart you own flight plan. When it is time for your plane to take off, your plane will leave (With you on board of course!) – Without any time being wasted.

You have the whole plane to yourself

With a private jet, you do not even have to worry whether or not you will get a window seat or whether you will get irritating passengers – you can choose wherever you want to sit as the whole plane has been reserved just for you. If you like, you can even ask the jet company to arrange for a special seat for you or a bed if you wish; they will even take care of that for you.

And, you do not even have to bother about the kind of food that you will be served – when you are booking your flight, all you have to do is tell them your choice of food and you will be served just what your heart desires. No wonder then that private jet charters are really a big deal.

Jet Charter Advantages

Affordability is one of the best advantages to using a private jet charter broker. It is possible that for large groups, charting a private jet can be less expensive per person than flying commercially. This makes jet charters a real option for corporate use when groups of employees or executives must travel together by air. Saving money puts booking jet charters at the top of the list of business advantages that corporate planners are seeking when they make travel arrangements.

Cost cutting extends to on the ground activities, time and transportation savings as well. Private jet aircraft can take off and land at thousands of smaller airports that are located more conveniently to destinations and home offices. Large metropolitan airports frequently are located many miles from downtown business areas or residential neighborhoods. Lines are shorter and security clearance is faster at these small airports.

Private jet charters can follow custom flight plans to go wherever the rental party wishes to travel. There are no set routes or departure and landing times for private jet charters. This offers real pleasure advantages to those who make last minute routing plans and for families who need a custom routing.

There are many ways to customize a jet charter flight. If the travelers require a special menu, that can be accommodated. Some people use the jet flight as their party experience. They take advantage of the luxury amenities that are available on jet charters. This includes stereo sound systems, widescreen televisions, Internet access work stations, plush leather seating and personal flight crew services for food and passenger comfort.

Optional advantages in jet charters include affixing temporary corporate logos to the aircraft. Privacy and comfort are two more excellent reasons to consider the benefits of hiring jet charters for business or personal travel. Next time, fly in luxurious comfort!
