Aero’s Answers to Some of the
Most Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a private jet charter, private jet rental or private plane rental?
A private jet charter, private jet rental or private plane rental is when you pay a licensed private jet charter operator to fly you and a set number of guests on a private aircraft – typically either a jet or exterior-propeller configuration. The cost of the plane charter / plane rental usually covers the entire aircraft giving you full access to all seats and amenities.

How much does it cost to fly private on a private jet?
When you charter a private jet, your cost typically pays for the whole jet and all of the seats. The total cost of a private jet charter varies but it is primarily made up of the hourly rate for the private jet model selected, the total time in flight including any repositioning flight time required and fees such as airport landing, customs or regulate surcharges.

Why is a private jet better than a turbo-prop?
Private plane charters or private plane rentals can come in many flavors, but typically you are looking at either a jet or a turbo-prop variety. Many smaller charter operators utilize single-pilot turbo-prop planes like the King Air B200. These external propeller-based planes are great for island hopping or short distances, but jets are able to fly up to 66% faster and 30% higher. This equates to a smoother, more comfortable ride that gets you there quicker and for a similar cost.
