Charter FAQ

What is the smallest aircraft that can go from New York to Phoenix Non Stop?

With winds constantly changing and every flight being slightly different in terms of fuel consumption it is unlikely that anything smaller than a Supermidsize Jet will be able to make this flight nonstop.

Which Airport is the best to use for a charter flight to Phoenix?

Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX) is right in downtown Phoenix and often times the most convenient. However, air traffic is much lighter at Scottsdale Municipal Airport (SDL) located just a few minutes outside of Phoenix.

With less air traffic coming in and out of Scottsdale it is a lot easier to navigate the airport itself and can often be quicker overall than dealing with the congestion both on the ground and in the air at Sky Harbor.

How fast can I get an aircraft off the ground out of Phoenix?

Within our network of aircraft in Phoenix we have on-demand availability at all times. Including the time it takes to get a crew to the aircraft and have it ready to fly, we can usually be off the ground in as little as 90 minutes. It will probably take you more time to pack…

What type of aircraft should I use for my charter flight to Phoenix?
