How to Charter a Private Plane

By Redtail Air Adventures

What is Chartering a Flight?

While many people have flown from place to place on commercial airlines, many have never experienced a light aircraft before! The majority of people think of flying as a means of fast and efficient transportation from point A to point B, but it can be so much more than that.

When you book a flight on a major airline, you are essentially renting out a single seat, which is conveniently crammed in between two strangers. If you are lucky, you just might get a small bag of air with a few peanuts in it, too! Chartering a plane in itself is an entirely different experience. While flying commercially might leave a bad taste in your mouth and cause feelings of stress and anxiety, for many, traveling by plane doesn’t have to feel this way. When you choose to charter a plane, you are essentially renting out the entire aircraft and the pilot — you get a private flight, ensuring that you receive the experience of a lifetime.

While chartering a plane may seem very expensive, it is definitely worth the experience. With a variety of flight durations and destinations, you can customize your flight to suit your personal needs/interests. The cost of a flight is dependent on duration and location — so contact us today to get a quote!
