Important Aircraft Charter Terms

Chartering an aircraft is an efficient way to travel and the industry has expanded in response to the growth of global business relations. If you travel frequently, or if you are attracted to the flexibility a privately leased plane provides, here are some key terms that you should be familiar with.

  • Charter – While most people purchase a single seat for a flight, these companies allow individuals or groups to rent a plane for private use. These companies focus on single itineraries, privacy and efficiency. Usually, arrangements need to be made at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Taxi – Taxis operate on an on demand basis. They can accommodate many last minute reservations, sometimes as soon as three hours before the desired departure time. They are used for shorter excursions that need to be done quickly and are not commonly used for international trips.
  • Fractional Ownership – This is the practice of purchasing a share in an aircraft. This is done so the individual can have the convenience and reliability of a jet at their disposal. In addition to the original time share purchase, the individual will need to pay a monthly upkeep cost and fees related to late booking and usage. The benefits to this type of ownership are that most plans and providers have global fleets that can be used after a short notice.
  • Sight Seeing – This is a type of tourist attraction in which a helicopter is leased for a short period of time by an individual. The difference here is that these are done for pleasure only, and are commonly found in scenic vacation areas.
  • Fixed Base Operator – This represents the majority of this industry. They provide maintenance, fuel, instruction, sales and services in addition to renting.

    For those who don't have their own airplanes or are just learning to fly may consider chartering, renting, or leasing an airplane. This may be ideal for people who only need an airplane for a short time period and don't need to buy their own. It's also great for a party, or for cargo transport. Whatever the reason, aircraft charter, rental and leasing companies can help. Such companies allow passengers to pay for a specified time period, whether the customers want to fly the plane themselves, or have a pilot fly the plane. Companies that charter, rent, or lease airplanes may also provide services for other aircraft fleets as well, such as helicopters or jets. Many of these companies run personal sight seeing tours for people enjoying a vacation. They're also utilized for private corporate business purposes. Charters and rentals may be charged by the hour, while leasing terms could extend longer than that. Whether the customer chooses guided assistance, or chooses to rent out the aircraft for a personal trip, rates will vary. Prices depend on the duration, type, and amenities of the craft. Aviation charters and rentals often cater to small groups or individuals, but many can accommodate large groups. Some companies specialize in executive jet travel, while others focus on servicing the sightseeing tour sector in popular vacation spots. Many aircraft charter, rental, and lease companies are located at airports, large and small, or heliports. Some allow for international travel, while others restrict to local or regional travel. Additional services offered may include airplane washing and cleaning, de-icing, quick turnarounds, courtesy crew cars, and contract fueling. Other services include flight planning, nitrogen and oxygen service, and availability of certified flight instructors boasting high standards. Passengers interested in learning more can contact local providers directly or browse the web first.
