Owners

Charter Addition for Owners

ADD YOUR AIRCRAFT TO OUR CHARTER CERTIFICATE

What We Do

  • We provide transparent economics to the Private Jet or Turbo Prop owner
  • We provide you with an opportunity to generate revenue with your aircraft in turn subsidizing your cost of ownership
  • We provide you with a comprehensive flight department to professionally operate your valuable asset
  • We operate your aircraft on our charter certificate with an 85%/15% revenue split or on a set dollar amount per hour.
  • We provide you with complete access to all of our purchasing power through industry wide contacts including fuel contracts, flight handling, insurance, maintenance, hangar, training, and exclusive airport options
    We provide all regulatory compliance.

Our program is for:

  • Owners who want to generate revenue with their aircraft, and lower their cost of operating an aircraft.
  • Owners who wish to obtain the additional tax benefits available only for charter aircraft.
  • Owners who wish to increase the value of their aircraft. Operators who wish to advertise their aircraft and make themselves available to the public.
    Owners who have a decreasing need for their aircraft, but do not want to sell or can’t sell.

You don’t have to go through the FAA Certification Process for a new operator, (usually takes 12-24 months, depending on the FAA Office issuing the certification) including 25 hours of proving runs in the aircraft. This cost can become astronomical.

You don’t have to train, qualify, and maintain the FAA required management personnel. Each charter certificate must have a Director of Operations, Chief Pilot and Director of Maintenance.

You don’t have to deal with the FAA. We always strive for 100% compliance with the regulations at all times.

Year Round Dispatch Support

Private Jets will provide telephone dispatch and flight following 24/7/365. In addition, Private Jets’ management personnel are available on-call 24 hours.

Aircraft Paperwork

We will generate and make available to the flight crew all necessary paperwork required by the regulations, such as: Discrepancy Forms, Daily and Monthly Duty Forms, Weight and Balance Forms, Maintenance Status Reports, and any other paperwork that the crew might need.

Pilot Folder

Private Jets will create and keep a pilot folder on each crewmember. This folder is generally about 75 pages and will contain information about the crew member, such as: Resume, Certificate and Medical, Company Training Forms, Assignments to Duty, Background Check Information, Checking Forms, Check Airman Letters, Duty Time Information, and any other pertinent information.

Pilot service

Private Jets keeps a database on all of our qualified crewmembers. This means you are never without a qualified crewmember for your aircraft.

Access to other aircraft

When your aircraft is added to our certificate, you will instantly gain access to our fleet. Think of it as a private club with exclusive access to a select group of members. If your aircraft is busy, down, or you need additional support, you can call on our fleet of 10 (and growing) aircraft.

Aircraft Training & Checking

At Private Jets, we are fully capable of providing complete Aircraft Ground and Aircraft Flight Training. We have a full complement of highly qualified Instructors, and pride ourselves as providing the best training around. Our FAA Approved Training Program allows us to train to proficiency. This will allow your pilots who have superior skill and knowledge to spend less time in training.

We also have training contracts with Flight Safety and Jet Contrail. Both of these facilities are approved to conduct our FAR 135 Aircraft Ground and Aircraft Flight Training. Each pilot is checked according to the 135 regulations (135.293,135.299 annually, and 135.297 every 6 months). Each Captain must complete all three checks; First Officers must complete the 135.293 only. We retain check airmen on staff to accomplish these checks in-house.

TAX INFORMATION

The tax laws that govern aircraft differ between the charter aircraft (FAR 135) vs. aircraft that are not on a certificate (FAR 91). Typically, aircraft that are on a charter certificate are considered a for-profit business and qualify for tax relief benefits.

By converting your aircraft into a “BUSINESS”, you can enjoy additional write-offs that are unavailable when operating under FAR 91 only. This is in addition to the revenue potential.
