Experience Artvin and Bodrum, Turkey

Executive Fliteways: Where Excellence Is In The Air...

Artvin is a city in northeastern Turkey about 30 km inland from the Black Sea. It is located on a hill overlooking the Çoruh River near the Deriner Dam. It is a former bishopric and Armenian Catholic titular see and the home of Artvin Çoruh University.Located on the Turkish coast, the city of Bodrum offers a comprehensive tourist experience, expertly blending the commercial, the cultural and the unique. Whether you’re a keen historian, intrepid explorer, or a shopaholic, Bodrum has something for everybody. With a rich history that dates back to the Bronze Age, Artvin’s historical ruins are some of Turkey’s lesser-known gems, hidden among the province’s evergreen natural landscapes. Check out some of the essential sights of this fascinating Black Sea province.

Karagöl Sahara Milli Parkı: No visit to Artvin would be complete without immersing oneself in nature and the Karagöl Sahara National Park is an excellent place to do just that. The park, established in 1994, covers an area of 8,030 acres, with only one hotel by the beautiful Karagöl Lake, a great starting point for camping, swimming and hiking vacations in untouched nature.

Porta Monastery: The steep two-kilometer (1.2-mile) walking path toward this beautiful yet dilapidated church in a gorgeous remote forested canyon is very much worth the effort because of its significance in Georgian history. Historians believe Porta Monastery to be the monastery founded by the monk Grigol Khandzteli, who was the founder and leader of many monastic communities in Tao-Klarjeti (a historical region in southwest Georgia).

Ardanuç Kalesi: Another famous Artvin fortress, the Ardanuç Kalesi is almost entirely surrounded by the jagged edges of natural cliffs and, therefore, overlooks the valley in quite the dramatic pose. You’ll have to climb the steep metal steps to enter the fascinating structure, which used to look out on the capital of Georgian king Ashot the Great in the early 9th century.

Livane Kalesi: Built in 937 by Bagrat III, King of the Abkhazians and Georgia and part of the Georgian Bagrationi dynasty, the Livane Kalesi (or Artvin Kalesi) was extended during the reign of Ottoman Sultan Suleiman I. Perched on a rock above the valley, the impressive structure also holds a cistern and chapel within its irregular cut stone walls.

Şavşat Kalesi:

Another fairy-tale castle in Artvin, the Şavşat Kalesi, founded by the Georgians in the 10th century, served as the seat of Shavsheti, one of Tao-Klarjeti’s many princedoms. Make sure to pay attention to the information boards that give more details about the fortress’ wine cellar, pharmacy and hamam.

Mençuna Şelalesi: One of the biggest waterfalls in the province, the Mençuna Şelalesi is quite the popular stop in Artvin and is a stunning sight with water tumbling down the cliff surrounded by the evergreen forest. The 100-meter (328-foot) drop is especially beautiful in the months of April and May.

Barhal Kilisesi: Located in the Barhal or Altınparmak village, Barhal Kilisesi is a medieval Georgian monastery and cathedral church built by Davit III Kurapalat (a Georgian prince of the Bagratid family of Tao) in approximately 973. The structure is a definite must-see because of its well-preserved demeanor set within the remote natural landscape.

Cehennem Deresi Kanyonu: Despite its name (which translates to Hell Creek Canyon), this natural spectacle is quite beautiful with its deep canyons that rise to 200 meters (656 feet) in height. Look out for the mysterious caves in the impressively curving natural rock façades.

Alexander Kartveli Batumi International Airport (IATA: BUS, ICAO: UGSB) is an airport located 2 km (1.2 mi) south of Batumi, a city on the Black Sea coast and capital of Adjara, an autonomous republic in southwest Georgia. The airport is 20 km (12 mi) northeast of Hopa, Turkey and serves as a domestic and international airport for Georgia and northeastern Turkey.

Our Private Jet Charter Fleet

Light PRIVATE 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 PRIVATE 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 MidsIZED JETS: 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 PRIVATE 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.
