When you have finally decided to charter a planes, you would still need to choose which aircraft to use. Although the charter firms can help you to choose a jet to rent out, it is still important that you know how to select so that you will know if the one they selected for you is right for our travel.
There are several factors that you should consider so that you can get the best out of your charter flight.
1. Number of people that you are travelling with.
The number of people greatly affects the kind of jet you have to rent. Usually, a heavy het can fit 6 to 18 people. If there are more people travelling with you, then you would have to choose a bigger jet. The preference of the people you are with should also be considered. Some people are not comfortable in riding a plane with more people in it because they require much space. Some may also require more space because of their size or because of how tall they are. The space in the jet will also be affected by the arrangement of the seats. Some seats can face each other just like what you have in your living room. The number of people that can be accommodated will also depend on the number of people who would want to lay down and take a nap or sleep during the flight.
2. The weight or amount of luggage you are going to take with you.
The amount of luggage you will bring and the type of baggage you will be bringing will also affect the type of jet that you should charter. Some jets are not equipped with a space or a holder for your special equipment for sports or for your skis. Golfers also need to find a jet that can accommodate all their luggage and equipment.
3. The distance that you need to travel.
After consider the amount of luggage and the number of people you fit into the jet, you also need to consider how far you are going to travel. Those who offer the charter flights need to know if it is okay for you to have fuel stops. Although a smaller jet can be cheaper than a bigger one, it needs to have fuel stops that can extend the time of your travel for around 3 to 4 hours. The availability of stops is also to be considered. If you are to travel to a place where there are no available fuel stops in the way, you should go and get the larger jets.
4. The conditions of the airport of your destination.
If you are to land on a small airport, be sure that your plane can safely land and take off. The small jets would be better and they would be safer to take especially when you’re destination is a remote area. The small jets can safely land or take off a shorter or long runway so you wouldn’t have much problem about it.
