FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We operate a Cirrus SR22 aircraft. It is by far the best aircraft in terms of safety and miles/$ when up to 3 passengers are traveling.
Only minutes! If you arrive about 10-15 minutes before departure, you should have plenty of time to get onboard and be ready to go. If you are running late, no problem. We operate on your schedule! There could be pilot duty time complications or wait time costs if we end up leaving much later than our planned time, but we will always try to accommodate your schedule.
Hours and hours. When you fly with us you won't need to arrive 1-2 hours early like you do on the airlines. You'll never have a layover. And we'll usually bring you to an airport much closer to your destination than the airlines can. The airports we use also usually have less air and vehicular traffic, so things just happen faster.
It depends on the weight of the passengers and the distance of the flight. On shorter flights we can often take 3 passengers. On longer flights we'll need to carry more fuel and may be limited to 2 passengers. We'll work with you when we provide a quote to make sure you know what to expect and who you can take.
We'll have water, soda, and light snacks onboard. You are welcome to bring any food or non-alcoholic drink you'd like. Federal regulations prohibit us from allowing passengers to drink alcohol onboard they've brought. If you'd like beverages with alcohol to be provided by us, please let us know in advance.
