Frequently Asked


Whether you travel frequently for business or only occasionally for pleasure, chances are you've considered hiring a charter plane. When you fly on a private plane, you can skip the long wait times and baggage checks of a commercial flight. Your departure and return times are determined by your schedule, and in some cases you can even book a same-day flight! Here are some of our most commonly asked questions regarding private flights:

What does a Charter Flight cost?

Each flight is calculated individually with multiple factors involved, but roughly averages $1,650 per hour. Please keep in mind that our planes carry up to nine passengers and this price can be split among travelers. In addition, our pilots can layover when others won’t. This can save unnecessary return charter pickup charges.
