AIRCRAFT, PILOTS & OPERATIONS SAFETY
We consider you, your family, friends and colleagues the most precious cargo, and our primary goal is your safety when arranging private jet charters.
Unfortunately, the word “safety” is carelessly thrown around in the charter industry. But we take your safety seriously and have made it our number one priority. Instead of just talking about air charter safety, we make sure your pilots and aircraft operator exceed the industry safety standards.
Safety means more than just arriving at your destination on time, although timely arrival is important. Overall safety is best achieved by utilizing a trained, expert aircraft crew on a well-maintained aircraft, careful selected after a diligent review of up-to-date aircraft reports.
We hand select air carriers that fit our criterion on every flight we arrange. We first locate an aircraft that fits your needs as far as size, fuel stops, baggage compartments and price. Once we have narrowed our search, we perform pre-flight and pre-booking checks to ensure the integrity of the carrier. In addition, we verify that their pilots have had sufficient medical exams, exceed industry standards and that they are qualified to fly the required aircraft type. All flights arranged by Air Charter Advisors are flown by two pilots unless otherwise request under special circumstances.
When arranging flights, we use FAR Part 135 air carriers, which are certified by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and that carry a substantial insurance policy.
What does all of this mean to you? When you allow us to arrange your flight, you can be sure that it will be operated by a company which meets and exceeds top standards in the industry.

TRANSPARENCY – WHO ARE THE ADVISORS?
Have you ever wondered who your jet charter broker REALLY is? We can’t tell you about the other charter brokers, but we can ensure you that our business practices are ethical and transparent. Feel proud to tell your business partners, friends and family who you are working with. The Air Charter Advisors are second to none.
How do you know that you can REALLY trust just anyone with your family’s, friends, and business associates personal information/trip details, or their lives for that matter? Your reasoning behind flying private may solely be to protect this information and your loved ones.
You are putting your life in someone else hands, trusting that they have arranged a safe aircraft for your trip without cutting any corners. Are you prepared to send a large payment via Bank Wire, copies of your drivers license, passports and trip details to an individual that may have a record including fraudulent activity?

Regulations for Charter Brokers
Brokers in real estate, insurance, and finance all sell products or services similar in cost. All of these professions are required to be licensed and certified by law, all while passing courses and exams. This is aimed at protecting customers from unauthorized businesses taking advantage through shady practices and illegal operations.
Although no licensing currently exists, the FAA and DoT are taking steps towards providing more transparency. Beginning February 14th, 2019, the Department of Transportation will enact PART 295 – Air Charter Brokers. Part 295 is a new set of regulations for charter brokers, designed to provide more a transparent environment in the private aviation industry. Learn more about the new charter broker regulations.
