There are two major differences between private charter and scheduled airline service: cost and flexibility. While booking a flight via jet services companies is generally more expensive, they provide a much higher degree of flexibility. With Pentastar Aviation Charter, Inc. your charter will fly on YOUR schedule to the domestic or international destination of YOUR choice. Our service to both major and general aviation airports gives you access to more than ten times as many domestic destinations as scheduled airline service. In addition, we have international experience operating in more than 80 countries.
My experience with Stratos has been very good since I started booking jets several years ago. Joel and his team provide excellent service and followup at every stage. We recently had a flight where the incoming plane had a mechanical and they were able to replace it with a comparable one within just a few hours. Our original take off time was only missed by less than a half hour. The Stratos team communicated with us all along the way and everything was fine. The pilots are very good at what they do and the ground organization is thorough and efficient. I would recommend them to a friend.
Les avions de petite capacité conviennent parfaitement au transport de petits groupes sur de courtes distances. Les groupes en question correspondent souvent à des voyageurs d’affaires, des professionnels prenant des navettes entre leurs bureaux français et leurs filiales européennes par exemple, le transport en avion charter de groupes de passagers ou encore des équipes sportives ou de supporters (football, rugby,…).

Depending on who you believe 30-to-50% of all private jet flights are ferry flights. However, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily dirt cheap. Magellan Jets, which sells jet cards and on-demand charter also offers empty legs, and while you have to contact the company for pricing, it says rates start at $3,000 per hour. Airstream Jets enables visitors to its website to download a list of active empty legs and while most of the 13 listings were for the next two weeks, there were flights posted through mid-November, one an empty leg in September on a Gulfstream G-IVSP from New York to London for $49,900. Another broker quoted the same date and route at $92,000. Even more attractive was a G500 charter this weekend from Palermo, Italy to New York for $35,000. Quotes for a non-empty leg charter that I received from another broker for random dates in August started at $111,000.
Louer un jet privé selon sa taille, c’est facile avec Private Jet Charter. Les types d’avions, par exemple, petit (léger), moyen, super moyen ou plus lourd, correspondent à leur autonomie et au nombre de passagers qu’ils peuvent emporter. Prenons le cas d’un jet léger, comme un Cessna Citation Jet 2 (CJ2) disposant de 6 places assises, d’une autonomie maximale de 2680km et d’une soute à bagages 2.0954m³. Ce jet est parfait pour un trajet Londres-Paris ou Londres-Genève sans avoir à refaire le plein pour 6 passagers et leurs bagages. Il existe d’autres avions similaires au Cessna Citation Jet 2, par exemple, le Lear 40 ou le Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1.
