Why Charter?

Aircraft charter is the most convenient method of travel for residents and visitors in the Palm Springs area, Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego. With our local airline service only offering few options for nonstop travel, aircraft charter provides an efficient alternative.

Traveling by aircraft charter is one of the quickest and most convenient ways to travel. When chartering an aircraft, you can utilize over 5,000 airports available nationwide, compared to the only 500 airports used by airlines. These airports are commonly known as general aviation airports, private airports, regional airports or executive airports. Most communities have these smaller airports, which enable you to reduce your driving time to a larger airport. Our desert community has three of these smaller airports; Palm Springs International Airport, Bermuda Dunes Airport and the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Thermal.  In Orange County, the John Wayne Airport is a popular choice for private jet flights.  In San Diego, the airport choices include San Diego-Lindbergh Field, Montgomery Field, Carlsbad Airport, Gillespie Field and San Diego-Brown International Airport.

  • Arrive to the airport and immediately board your aircraft, with no delays.
  • Avoid connecting flights that prevent you from accomplishing your business all in one day.
  • Make multiple visits to clients in different cities and return home refreshed the same day, in time for dinner with the family.

  • No worries about your luggage being lost on a private aircraft.
  • Equipment that you’d never risk on an airliner can be safely transported by private aircraft.
  • Pets can fly in the cabin with you and, in most cases, can sit on your lap or at your feet without a pet carrier.
  • Special amenities on board business jets, such as satellite phones, help keep you in touch with other employees on the ground during rapidly changing situations.
  • Elderly passengers and those needing special assistance find that traveling by private jet relieves the stress and uncertainty that comes with connecting flights when traveling by airlines.
