How much does it cost to charter a plane?
I really need to charter a light jet from Mexico City to Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico. If you could please help me figure out the price, and where I could charter one. I would very much appreciate it. THanks
Question answered by Colin
Depends on a few different things.
1. Size and model of aircraft (this variable affects many of the other costs because of fuel, amenities, and the amount of staff needed for the flight).
2. Distance you are planning to travel.
3.The amount of hours you plan to have the aircraft and staff in use.
Price range for a gulfstream can typically be expected to cost anywhere from 5,000 - 10,0000 US Dollars (per Hour).
However, many people own their own jets. Although, if they are using the plane for business, the travel expenses can be write off to the company as an expense. There are also people who use the plane simply to avoid the hassles of airport security and the wait. But these people are usually apart of the 2%.

Question answered by lowlevel
First, unless you are silly like me, you either become just a pilot, or just a mechanic.
To become a mechanic there are several way to do it. The best way would be to enroll in a technical school that teaches an AME or A & P course. This will cost money but will make you far more employable. Some people can get jobs with an airline with no training, but you generally start as a cleaner, parts clerk, or interior technician while you build up skills. If you are in the US you write your exams after you finish the course and you get an A & P certificate. After a few years and more tests you can get your IA (Inspector Authorization) which allows you to certify the work on aircfraft. In Canada you write exams after your course (except air regs) and complete a 48 month apprenticeship (of which a certified course will give you credit for 18). Then you are issued an AME license which gives you authority to certify work on aircraft (with some limitations).
Starting wages for airline mechanics are in the $17-$20/hr range. Once licensed (A & P with IA and type endorsement or AME M2 with type endorsement) expect a wage between $27-$35/hr for airlines. If you are working for an airline, expect a lot of graveyard shifts and weekends until you climb the seniority list.
Now for the pilot side. There are no height restrictions for civilian pilots but all must have 20/20 vision (corrected or uncorrected). A flight school will give you all the information you need but there are many different types, so check out a few of them. Some will offer accelerated training in a university style environment and will give you an aviation diploma (which is what most airlines want, although they will take a four year degree in lieu). Other flight schools are more of the mom and pop variety, but generally pay closer attention to detail and are available to glean extra advice during non flying time. You will start out with a private pilots license and work towards a commercial certificate (250hours total time in the US, 200 in Canada). On the way to becoming a commercial pilot you should pick up your multi engine and instrument rating.
After you are done your commercial training you will get on with a small air taxi, charter, or flight school to build up hours. Your goal is to get an Airline Transport Pilot License which you will need to fly with the airlines.
To get enough hours and experience to fly with a major airline takes about ten years of hard work, determination, low paying jobs, and terrible hours. Starting wages for pilots are about $20,000/year. Regional airline first officers get about $20-$25,000/year going up to about $50,000/year for a regional captain. Major airline first officers start at about $40,000/year going up well into the six figures for a senior captain.
Are there any private aircraft/jets you can charter which have facility to use own cell phones in flight?
when hiring a private aircraft for a large group of business people, are there any planes which have the facilty to have reception on your own cell phones in flight, or is it only the onboard phone which will work?
Question answered by dcgirl
It's the onboard phones that will work; cell phones won't work because you can't get a reliable signal from a tower while you're going at 400mph, 30,000 feet in the air. A few commercial liners are now being equipped with satellite capabilities but that's too expensive for most private crafts; the cell providers subsidise the expense for the commercial jets because they will be the only provider whose network works, and they'll make a fortune from the roaming charges.

Question answered by KAMAL AERONAUTICAL ENGINEER
hi friends if you wanna to rent your aircraft to the other i have best idea for it.
firstg calculate the distance between origine and destination
and how much fuel will be required for them.
now calculate the seat or facility availible in your plane.
add all them and give your friend cost in per person.
Step1:Need to get away but you don’t own a plane, you don't belong to your local flight club and you're not a pilot? You need to charter a flight which is the ultimate way to travel. When you think about long distance travel on commercial airlines, there is a good chance that you end up thinking of things like long lines at the airport, the difficulty of picking up your luggage, the tedious trip through the metal detectors, pushing and shoving to get your hand luggage in the over head compartment and long runway delays. This can be eliminated.
Step2:Try chartering or leasing a private plane or jet. Private plane companies will offer you the choice of size to coincide with your needs. Remember when you order a plane, the sky is the limit to the amenities, price and comfort.Concern about chartering a private plane is typically money. It will be pricier than using a regular plane ticket, but remember that you will be getting a lot in return, as well. Charter rates vary by operator but are generally determined by an aircraft's size and capacity whether it's a single engine or compact jet and how far you're traveling.Rates will typically range from less than $2,000 per hour and extend up to approximately $4,000 per hour for the wide-body, large-cabin international jets. Turboprops are about $1,000 per hour and a small twin engine aircraft at $500 per hour. Usually there are two-hour daily minimums, plus airport fees and federal excise taxes. Although this gives you sticker shock, if you travel with a group by sharing the costs, the trip will be substantially lower per person, thus making traveling this way more desirable. An east to west coast trip would run $400 per person based on a group of ten. This becomes less expensive by chartering a carrier than flying first class on a commercial airliner.
Step3:Adapt to your schedule and not the one assigned by the airline. You can leave at a time that is suitable for you. Avoid and cut down on a great deal of the problems that you experience at public airports. You'll find that you don't need to leave your home four hours early to get to the airport and then wait two hours for your flight to leave. There is no need to purchase your ticket 21 days in advance, as many private plane firms can take a reservation within 24 hours. Decide what you want on the menu or other amenities that are needed, as customized concierge and catering services are available at your discretion. Baggage capacity varies depending on aircraft size. Most aircraft will accommodate your family pet. Flights can be arranged within North America, Central America and the Caribbean with larger aircraft flying to Europe and other distant destinations. Check the web for all the major chartering companies and fly away. You're responsible for the pilot's lodging and expenses, if necessary, as well as taxes and local airport landing and parking fees. To avoid fly-by-night outfits, make sure the company you hire has an FAA Air Carrier Operating License.
Step4:Visit your local airport to locate a company that services rentals to licensed pilots. As a licensed pilot you are the only one authorized to rent a plane based upon FAA regulations. Be aware that you must pay for the fuel that is used as a separate charge over the rental fee. You can lower the expenditure even more by taking the opportunity to join a flight club at the airport. This will give you the advantage of having access to equipment when needed.
Step5Cost will depend on the type, age and equipment of the airplane you want to rent. Each company sets their own rental rates, but most try to keep their rates competitive. For a four seater, the average rate is at $60 an hour. Some companies may charge extra or require a minimum amount of flight time per day if you take an airplane overnight or for a very long period of time.
work full time in Illinois, but I want to be a aircraft pliot. What are the best flight schools in Chicago an?
I work full time in Illinois, but I want to be a aircraft pliot. What are the best flight schools in Chicago and at what age should you really NOT be thinking of taking up being a commercial pilot??
Question answered by JetDoc
The AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Assn) website shows five pilot training schools in the Chicago area, with two at Midway airport and three at Lansing Municipal. Associated Air in Lansing, IL is a Cessna Pilot center offering a full range of pilot training courses...
As far as age goes... Scheduled Airline (FAR Part 121) pilots must retire on their 60th birthday, but you can continue to fly as a commercial pilot in charter and corporate operations (Part 135 and Part 91) as long as you can pass your flight physical. One famous air show pilot, Bob Hoover, is well into his 80's and still flying demonstration flights at air shows around the country.

Question answered by Cessna 172 Man!
Where can I find an airline where you can rent the plane and charter 40 people to Costa Rica for my wedding?
My fiancee said that you can charter a plane from California to Costa Rica. You rent the plane and it can hold 40 people. Anyone have any idea how or where I can find out information on this?
My fiancee heard of this almost 10 years ago so it makes sense that he doesn't know much about it anymore.
Question answered by southrntrnzplnt
You didn't mention where in California you are looking to fly from, but chartering an entire aircraft can be much more expensive than just buying tickets. If you have a large party, you can get a group discount, but you need to call the airlines group reservations line to book the trip.
You can try http://www.stratosjets.com to get a quote. Look at the Boeing Business Jet Rental (look at the Charter Aircraft Tab on the website so see the aircraft specs. It holds up to 50 people.) **But you are looking at $5000-$9000/hour to rent this aircraft.** If you are flying from LA, that is a 5 1/2 to 6 hour flight....so do the math, it will be cheaper to just book a group on a regular passenger airline. You can book the entire group for the cost of 2 hours of renting a plane.
How much does it cost to charter a jet?
How much does it cost to charter a jet?
Question answered by law dog
The cost of chartering a private jet is calculated by multiplying the flight time by the hourly rate, plus expenses. The flight time is calculated using one of several flight-planning programs designed to calculate estimated flight times. The flight times are calculated taking into account aircraft speed, typical winds and anticipated routing by air traffic control and are estimated to the nearest 1/10th of an hour. The hourly rate is dependant on the aircraft class.
The estimated flight time from New York to Nassau is 2 hours and 54 minutes, or 2.9 hours, and the return flight is estimated at 2 hours and 48 minutes or 2.8 hours. The total round-trip flight time is 5.7 hours. This is the number of hours the rate will be multiplied by to get our cost.
Aircraft hourly rates are dependant on aircraft size. There are three common size classes, based on cabin dimensions: light or small jets, mid-size or medium jets, and heavy or full-size jets. For a more information on aircraft cabin sizes and performance, please visit this jet charter fleet gallery. Light jets typically cost around $2,500 per flight hour, mid-size jets cost around $3,200 per flight hour and heavy jets cost on average $4,500 per hour and up.
Back to the Bahamas. If we multiply our flight estimate of 5.7 hours by the hourly rate of a mid-size jet of $3,200 per hour, our base flight charges come to $18,240.
In addition to flight charges, the charterer is responsible for all charges incurred during the trip, including over-night charges, landing fees, International fees, catering and flight-phone usage.
Flying a plane is expensive so it’s typical for the plane to wait while the passengers go some place. On our trip to The Bahamas, the plane will be staying overnight for three nights, from Thursday through Saturday night. The costs associated with parking the plane and covering expenses of the flight crew are borne by the charterer. These costs are typically charged at a flat rate of $600 per night. These charges add $1,800 to the cost of our charter.
Running and maintaining an airport is an expensive proposition. One of the ways airports collect revenue is by charging a fee to every plane that uses the airport. These charges are appropriately called landing fees. Our flight to the Bahamas will land twice, once in the Bahamas and again in New York on the return flight. Landing fees generally run $150 per landing for a mid-size jet so this will add $300 to the cost of the charter.
The Bahamas is outside of the United States. Flying internationally requires permits, and permits mean paperwork. Permits must be obtained from Customs and Immigrations in the Bahamas granting permission for the plane, crew, and passengers to land and enter the country, as well as from United States Customs and Immigrations for the return. The cost of having these documents prepared for a charter is passed on to the charterer. International fees for the Bahamas will add approximately $1,500 to the cost of the charter.
Standard catering on a private jet includes full beverage service and light snacks. Passengers often want to enhance their flying experience by ordering a special meal service or a special beverage service and the cost of service is passed along to the charterer. Sandwiches and beer will add around $100. Champagne and Caviar could add as much as $1,000. Additionally, the aircraft is equipped with a flight-phone. Usage is billed at cost when incurred.
So let’s recap:
Flight Charges $18,240
Overnight fees $1,800
Landing fees $300
International fees $1,500
Total Cost $22,140
This is the total cost for the plane. A mid-size jet can generally seat 8 passengers so the cost would be the same if we had one passenger or eight.
In response to our original question of “So how much does it really cost to charter a private jet?”, I guess the long answer is $22,140 if you’re going from New York to the Bahamas for a long weekend. If you have 8 passengers and you figure the cost at around $2,750 per passenger, the short answer is as we said “Not as much as you’d think”.
Whats the difference between bulk air, published air and chartered air?

bulk ... the seller is sell a quantity of seats he 'owns' that may or may not be on a scheduled airline
published ... seller is sell available seats on scheduled airlines
charter ... seller has 'rented' an aircraft for a specified flight/schedule; the aircraft may or may not be crewed/provided by a scheduled airline.
