The cost of a charter flight is expensive due to the costs associated with manufacturing, flying, and maintaining a safe aircraft. However, as a general rule of thumb, if you can fill most of the seats — or all of them — you will find the cost-per-person will be similar to the price of a first-class airline ticket. In addition, you will have the comfort, convenience, extra service, and privacy of flying on your own aircraft — on your schedule!
Unlike airlines which serve 500 airports throughout the country, air charter allows access to over 5,000 general & corporate aviation airports throughout the United States and Canada. All you need to do is give us the address of your meeting and we will locate the nearest airport. In addition, we can make all necessary ground transportation arrangements (limousine, rental car / SUV, or town car & driver.)
Air charter gives you increased productivity and no wasted time! We are on your schedule. Thus, if you need to cut your trip short, add additional days, or even add another stop to visit family or meet with another customer, you have the flexibility to change your schedule.
Our crews are licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and professionally trained to the highest of standards. To maintain currency our pilots undergo an instrument proficiency check every 6 months and a full flight check every 12 months, both performed by an FAA Authorized Check-Airman. Jet Air partners with CAE (Professional Full-Motion Simulator School) for annual training with captains of our turbine-powered aircraft. In addition to safety ratings with ARG/US and Wyvern, we have adopted our own approved Safety Management System which assists crews in assessing and mitigating potential risks before each and every flight. Safety is our number one priority.
Jet Air, Inc. is licensed by the FAA to provide Part 135 Air Carrier / Air Taxi Charter for: Passengers, Cargo (Hazmat), and Air Ambulance. In addition, we are certified by the Iowa Department of Health for Basic and Advanced Life Support Medical Transfers. Jet Air, Inc. currently carries $100 million liability on our larger jets, and $50 million liability on our smaller jets and turboprops. Single-pilot operations are covered by $25 Million Liability in our turbo-prop aircraft and $10 Million liability in piston-twin engine aircraft.
Each pilot that flies for Jet Air exceeds the minimum requirements set by the FAA for Air Charter operators. The average total time of the pilots that fly for us exceeds industry standards by at least double! Each jet aircraft is operated with a crew of two pilots. The King Air and twin engine Cessna aircraft can be flown with one pilot, but at the request of the customer, a two-pilot crew can be assigned.
The amount of luggage you can take depends on the number of passengers and size of aircraft you are chartering. In most cases, you can comfortably take 3 bags per person. In certain aircraft, golf clubs and skis can be stowed in the storage area in either the exterior or interior baggage areas. Another nice feature of charter is you Eliminate Lost Bags! No checking of baggage and waiting at the claim area like on the airlines!
