Is a corporate private jet needed?


Executive Fliteways Is Excellence In The Air

Before you choose a private jet charter company, it is recommended identify the inefficient processes in your business model to ensure that a private, corporate jet is even needed.

Inefficiencies arise and hide in many places. You might identify slow, clunky or redundant processes, hard-to-find information or obsolete procedures – or worse – no procedures at all.

Many corporations struggle with unnecessary complicated processes. Others, in an effort to run toward the latest in technology too quickly, implement too many new systems and get stuck trying to do it all. Some of those companies will give up and abandon their grandiose plans.

Avoiding these trappings requires an awareness of your corporation's capabilities. If your business suffers from these issues, your ability to improve efficiencies depends largely on how well you can spot what's slowing bogging you down.

A "how do we build a better mousetrap?" mentality is invaluable in order to open your eyes. Feedback from employees and consumers is a trove of information you can use to streamline your business model and part with those inefficient, resource-sapping processes and search for better ones.

Maybe you are renting 3 or 4 car services per week to travel for business. Maybe you are buying every employee a round-trip ticket on a large commercial airline.

Maybe you thought you were getting a great deal then once you added in all of their fees, you know better. How many hotel rooms do you generally book for a trip? What kind of drain on the bottom line is staying overnight in a new city? Add in food, dbeverages and entertainment – plus the stress of being away from home. Maybe you are using your own employees to book your company’s flights. Maybe you, yourself make the travel arrangements. Is this efficient? What are you really really saving? In the end, you're probably losing more than just capital.

Taking risks is a key part of exposing inefficiencies. It can be alarming to move away from processes that only seem to have stood the test of time. Your reward, though, is discovering which practices are no longer relevant to modern businesses. Every entrepreneur must learn to evaluate unexpected opportunities and have the courage to investigate them. Doing so drives industries forward and propels individuals and companies to success.

Failure will tell you more about your business than successes. Failures prove to be cautionary tales for future tasks, whereas repeating the same past successes will cause stagnation.

Air travel is more than transportation. More fully integrating the whole machine revealed still more ways to increase efficiency. Research supports this. A study commissioned by Google found an 81 percent positive correlation between collaboration and innovation within a business.

Every plane needs some fine-tuning now and then -- a little oil to keep it running smoothly. Even a very successful business stands to benefit by proactively searching for new, more efficient methods.

Your reward, though, is discovering which practices no longer are relevant to modern business needs. Every entrepreneur must learn to evaluate unexpected opportunities and have the courage to explore them. Doing so drives industries forward and propels individuals and companies to success.

Properly integrating digital solutions can improve efficiency in numerous ways. Technology can automate time-consuming tasks, allowing employees to focus on things that require human attention. Faster, easier communication is a consistent result of digital integration. Reports are generated and shared more quickly, problems come to light sooner and employees can collaborate more easily with one another and your customers, too. Thorough digital integration is truly a must-have to boost efficiency.

Your plane might fly, but if its landing gear doesn’t work, you're much better off taking the bus. Consider the entire machine and how your business and product fit into a larger picture.

Some "solutions" may need to be removed from the travel process.

Perhaps not every industry can be so thoroughly involved with its consumers and not every department can integrate with others. Limitations can be perceived or very real. Either way, being aware of the bigger picture is an essential part of providing efficient services. Understanding where the need for your services comes from and how they will be used allows you to anticipate and respond more authentically to consumer needs.

Risk is a necessary component of business. What if we are mistaken about which kind of changes needed? Maybe the industry worked the way it did for an unseen reason. Would changes make a positive difference? Would willingness to explore possibilities lead to shaping a new business travel model in your own company?

Our Private Jet Charter Fleet

Light Jets: 8 Passengers

A light jet is a category of small jets seating anywhere from 4 to 8 people (depending on configuration) and often with a maximum takeoff weight of under 10,000 pounds. Light jets are considered the lightest business jets and are approved for single pilot operation. Light jets are ideal for shorter trips for business meetings or family getaways.

Midsized Jets: 10 Passengers

Midsized jets – also referred to as mid-sized jets, are great for long distance travel such as transcontinental flights or trips requiring larger passenger capacity (depending on configuration). Unlike a light jet rental, Mid-size private jets are incredibly versatile private aircraft, combining the comfort and space of larger personal planes, with the speed and agility of small private jets. Private jet speeds help the aircraft travel a range of over 5,000 nautical miles and typically seats 7 to 10 passengers.

Super Mids: 16 Passengers

Super mid-sized jets are designed to comfortably accommodate from 8 to 16 passengers (depending on configuration) - with substantial baggage space. Super mids can be chartered for international, non-stop transcontinental or mid-range travel with an average flight range of up to 9 hours of flight time - or 4,500 miles - in optimum conditions.

Large Jets: 16 Passengers

Large cabin jets have a cabin height of over six feet. Cabin width varies from nearly seven to over eight feet, while cabin length can range from 28 feet to nearly 50 feet. With endurance of 8 to 10 hours, many large cabin jets - like the Falcon 900 - are also designed for longer range flights such as New York to Paris. Large cabin jet cabin amenities can include WiFi, private lavatory, PlayStation video games, satellite phone, cabin attendant and a full galley.

Turbo Props: 10 Passengers

What sets turbo props apart is their versatility. Unlike other private jets, planes with a turbo prop engine don’t need a full runway for landing and take off; a short grass airstrip is more than enough. Which makes them perfect for taking the route less traveled. Made for short to medium journeys, turbo prop planes can land on grass airstrips and short runways. Turboprops are an economical way to fly, with room for eight to ten passengers.

Helicopters: 13 Passengers

While there are many reasons to take a chartered helicopter flight - the fact that for most it is a once in a lifetime experience is probably the most prominent. Helicopter flight in itself is an adventure that most people find thrilling. Making use of helicopter flights is also a great way to mark a special occasion and create new memories that will make a special day even more special.
