Business Aviation Education from Aargus Air Charter Volume 1, Post 16
Have you ever sat in a window seat on a commercial airliner, looked out and thought, “Gee, I wish we could land here. I’ve got customers in that city.”
One of the best things about business aviation is that you can land there! While the airlines have inflexible routes and schedules that fit their needs, business aviation allows you to pick the cities you need to visit, and arrange a schedule that works best for you.
Let’s say you've chartered a cost-effective twin engine plane for your sales manager, one of your technicians, and yourself to fly from Grand Rapids to Evansville, Indiana for a morning sales presentation. After closing the sale (bringing the technician was a smart move) and taking the new customers to lunch, you head back to the airport.
Realizing it’s only 1:30 and you’ve got the entire afternoon free, you ask the Captain if you can fly home by way of Dayton, Ohio where you’ve got a key supplier you’d like to visit. The Captain gets on the phone with the dispatcher, files a revised flight plan, and in almost no time at all has you airborne and headed for Dayton. Try that on a scheduled commercial airline!
