Yes. Here is some background on how the system works. Charter companies and pilots are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) before they are allowed to fly. Once this certification is achieved, their continued operation is at the FAA’s discretion, and they receive constant oversight under rigid safety regulations. Becoming certified is a time-consuming procedure, sometimes taking up to a year. Unannounced safety spot checks occur, and the FAA requires company operations manuals which must be approved by FAA officials.

This is a question of matching the proper aircraft type to the mission profile of your trip. The distance you plan to travel and the number of passengers on board will be two factors you will want to consider. In general, smaller aircraft are more economical for short trips. They seat fewer passengers and operate at lower costs. Larger jets are more comfortable for long trips with higher numbers of people traveling. Can Jet Aviation help me choose the right aircraft?
That will depend on the charter company you choose. Some companies fly only within the 48 contiguous states, or within a region. If you are flying internationally, it is best to inquire first whether the company is capable and authorized to fly to international destinations. Flight rules differ from country to country, and you must be sure that the company you are flying with has not only international flying experience but also pilots who are highly experienced and trained in international travel.
