Aircraft Charter

Aug 14, 2008
Charter flight - hiring a plane and a pilot for travel to a specific destination - goes all the way back to 1913 when an enterprising pilot started carrying passengers between San Francisco and Oakland (the only other alternative in those days before the Bay Bridge was a slow-moving ferryboat), it was actually the federal government who made the first use of charter flight in the sense of hiring individuals and small companies. The year was 1918, and the purpose was to carry the mail for corporate business and banking interests. The reason was to reduce the "float time" on checks during which funds were unavailable. By 1925, airmail was being carried on a regular schedule.

It's more efficient. High value or expensive personnel from a company may travel together and continue to conduct business. The possibility of "closing the deal" while in route to a destination cannot be minimized. Trying to get work accomplished while sandwiched between other people in a typical coach flight is almost impossible. A useful and private business meeting can be held on board a chartered jet or propeller aircraft making the trip to your destination that much more efficient.

To complicate matters, there's the issue of privacy and confidentiality. There's a lot of data and information on your laptop that is probably confidential to the point where you wouldn't want someone looking over your shoulder to see what you're doing. Trade secrets and privacy laws work against using commercial aircraft and flights for anyone intimately involved in large business deals. Even first class accommodations doesn't offer the level of privacy that a charter air flight would provide you and your staff. A useful and private business meeting on board a commercial airliner is all but impossible, and completing work confidentially or otherwise is more than a challenge.

You will soon find that all charter plane planners have a very close working relationship with aviation suppliers and this makes it possible for them to offer their customers a wide variety of services which include on ground support as well as high tech maintenance of the planes that they use.

When you fly scheduled airlines, you travel on the airline's schedule along with dealing with the inconvenience caused by flight delays, stop overs and plane transfers. A charter flight can take you exactly where you want to go instead of the more typical routing through certain cities that airlines seem to love to do.
