Preparing for Your First Private Jet Charter
Will Heyburn is a blade driver for a major airline servicing company. He has logged thousands of hours on the job and knows exactly what it takes to get the most out of his flying time, which is why he recently decided to give jet charter flying a try. Although he is an experienced flyer, this is the first time he’s used private jets on a frequent basis. He has flown private jets for corporate clients and had success in doing so, but wasn’t sure how to manage it as a solo operator. So, he started researching the whole process of chartering a private jet one day and realized that all the information he needed to fly solo would be easily available. It turned out that there are actually a few things that you need to know if you want to be successful in your quest to be the pilot who flies first and last in the world’s longest airplane.

There are several aspects of private jet ownership that you absolutely must understand and know before you get started. Private jet charters come with extremely strict rules about who can and cannot sit in the cockpit and start flying, so you need to be aware of this before you commit yourself and your plane. The first thing you will need to do is to know exactly what type of planes are available to you. There is a wide variety, from small twin engine machines, to large turbine airliners capable of carrying hundreds of passengers. You will also want to make sure that the plane you choose is in good condition and flown by licensed pilots, or you could end up in serious trouble.
While there are plenty of options, you will want to narrow it down to two or three candidates and contact them with your information. Most important of all, you should know and understand how much the ticket costs. This is the single biggest mistake that first time owners make and it can be a huge surprise to them once they have actually bought the ticket and traveled on the plane. Will Heyburn did not set out to become a pilot at the same time as he bought his first blade. But after years of flying smaller planes he was able to build an impressive collection of planes, including a vintage helicopter he calls the Black Widow.
