5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Private Charter Flight

Commercial air travel can be extremely tedious and exhausting. By the time you’ve reached your destination, you’re often in need of a recovery period before you can get to the business that made the trip necessary in the first place! Flying on a private charter flight makes everything just a little easier! You can determine when you depart, if there are stops along the way, and how many passengers are travelling with you, just to name a few benefits. If you haven’t traveled on a private charter, here are our top 5 questions to ask before making the jump!

WHAT TYPE OF EXPERIENCE DOES THE PILOT/CREW HAVE?

All our pilots are licensed and certified by the FAA and work exclusively full-time for Jackson Jet Center. They are also highly experienced in flying our fleet of charter aircraft. You can rest easy knowing that your pilot is very experienced and will take great care of you and your fellow passengers.

WHICH AIRCRAFT BEST SUITS MY NEEDS?

It depends on a few factors. How many passengers will be included? Are there travel time restrictions in place? Do you require certain amenities on board?

Getting you into the right aircraft is of critical importance to us. Jackson Jet Center wants you to have the best experience possible, while keeping your costs in-line with your budget. We are confident that we have the right plane for your needs.

HOW SAFE IS MY AIRCRAFT?

Safety is our top priority. Jackson Jet Center meets and exceeds all FAA requirements for aircraft safety. Our aircraft are meticulously maintained in accordance with FAA FAR Part 135 standards and incorporate state-of-the-art avionics. Our team of technicians and mechanics are all FAA certified and use only factory approved parts and equipment to maintain our aircraft.

HOW FLEXIBLE IS THE SCHEDULE?

The departure and arrival schedule are on your timeline. If you need to adjust a departure time, simply let our team know and we’ll take it from there. Our charter services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure you get where you need to be, when you need to be there.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE COST OF MY FLIGHT?

When you charter an aircraft, you essentially pay the entire plane whether you are flying alone, or you fill every seat. Each aircraft has a different hourly rate depending on the destination. The larger the aircraft and the longer the trip naturally cost more than smaller planes with shorter flights. Again, we’ll help you determine which aircraft is right for you and keep you within your budget.

These are just a few questions that will help you determine if flying on a private aircraft is the right answer for you. If you have more questions, our charter department is happy to walk you through the entire process and answer all your questions. Give us a call at 208-884-6667!
