User Guide To Aircraft Charter or Hire

Aircraft Charter or Hire in Australia

Aircraft charter is the business of hiring an entire aircraft for transport versus a single seat as on traditional flights. Companies operating charter flights are also called charter brokers.

Hiring an aircraft charter service allows you to travel in privacy, with options for choosing your custom route, the type of charter plane and the travel time. You might decide to use charter services for business or personal use, e.g. transporting your family or friends, attending meetings worldwide, escaping from the rigors of commercial flights amidst growing security precautions, moving equipment or cargo from one location to another, shifting a patient from one hospital to another, organizing a custom scenic tour, etc. The possibilities are endless but the one key factor of chartering a private plane is the fact that the flight revolves around your needs.

Benefits of Jet Charter

Convenience: Avoid long ticketing times and travel when you want
Speed: Get there faster than conventional jets with scheduled flights
Privacy: Travel in complete privacy with charter staff catering to just your needs
Luxury: Your personal limousine in the sky, complete with personal pilot, catering options, business services and communications on board, and staff ready to fulfill your every need.

Types of Private Jets

Cargo jets: can be used to transport any type of cargo from organ transplant to film-making equipment and larger.

Helicopters: typically included in charter services for very short distances at affordable rates.

Twin pistons: a kind of aircraft suitable for short flights and a capacity of up to 8-10 passengers

Turbo props: suitable for longer flights than a twin piston aircraft, typically up to 4-6 hours with a capacity of 70-80 passengers. Examples of turbo prop aircraft include Beech, Metro, and Saab.

Airliners: traditional airliners with capacity for up to 800 passengers.

Commuter aircraft: used for short distances. Examples include Fokker, ATR, and Dornier.

How to Choose a Charter Broker

Before booking a charter service, ensure that:

  • They operate aircraft from an airport that is convenient for you to fly from and land in
  • They have proper licensing and certificates such as an Air Operator Certificate or AOC from Australia's Civil Aviation and Safety Authority (CASA) and their personnel are licensed by the Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA)
  • They maintain a record of customers for referrals and information
  • They allow you to physically inspect the aircraft

When hiring an aircraft charter service, look for one with credible industry associations, licensed and trained staff (including support staff), destinations serviced, and type of aircraft fleet maintained by qualified engineers.
