Turboprops are propeller aircraft powered by turbine engines. With typical cruising speeds of over 300 knots and an average nonstop range greater than 1000 miles, they can travel further, faster and offer more comfort than piston engine aircraft while keeping charter costs below those of a Light Jet. Popular for short to mid-range flights, models such as the Pilatus PC-12 and King Air 350 can access runways that are often too short for jet aircraft.
Light jets are the perfect aircrafts for business travel, quick day trips or a fun weekend trip. Although there are many variations to choose from, the sleek design of a light jet typically seats 4-8 passengers. As the smaller option within the business jet family, these aircrafts are typically used when traveling shorter distances.
If your group is slightly larger, a medium jet charter is ideal for approximately 7-9 passengers. A medium sized luxury jet can wisk passengers to their destination in enviable style and comfort, with a rage of around 2,000 miles non-stop. These are ideal private aircraft, with the capacity to hold a business meeting in transit, providing a smooth and nearly silent flight.
Heavy jets are recommended for up to 15 passengers and provide clients with the utmost luxury and comfort. These aircraft are suitable for long-range trips up to 7,000 miles non-stop. This allows intercontinental flights without fuelling stops. The cabins have a standing height of up to 1.9 metres and VIP appointments at least comparable with the first class section on scheduled flights. Cabin staff serve gourmet catering.
VIP Airliners sit at the top of the food chain when it comes to luxury private jets. These flying palaces are perfect for group charters for corporations, professional sports teams, royal families and international delegations. VIP Airliners typically feature a master bedroom with bathroom and shower, and also a private area for both business meetings and entertaining guests. They typically have a cabin height of over six and a half feet, and cabin length ranges from 65 feet to over 100 feet. Amenities include with a fully equipped galley, sleeping berths, cabin attendants, multiple enclosed lavatories, and WiFi Internet.
Helicopters, also known as choppers or rotorcraft, are the ultimate utility vehicle and a versatile private air charter option. Rotorcraft offer distinct accessibility advantages over fixed-wing aircraft. A helicopter can take-off and land vertically, so an airstrip is not required for landings. A helicopter can land wherever there is flat and unobstructed terrain. They are typically configured to hold 4 to 7 passengers. Average speed for a helicopter is around 140 knots, with typical range capabilities of 400 to 500 statute miles.
