Flying Privately: The Basics

Flying Privately Webinar

Perhaps you have already chartered a couple of flights on your own or traveled on your company’s jet. Maybe COVID-19 has you thinking that it’s time to finally take the leap. Whatever your reasons for flying privately, you likely have questions about how to get started. That’s understandable, given how many options and providers exist and how widely costs vary.

Business Jet Traveler editor-in-chief Matt Thurber and veteran business aviation journalist Charles Alcock joined Robert Baltus, COO of the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), and Ryan Waguespack, Senior Vice President of the National Air Transportation Association, in an unbiased and invaluable conversation about topics such as:

  • Where do I even begin when it comes to flying privately?
  • How much does it really cost?
  • How do I know I’m safe?
  • What pitfalls should I look out for?
  • How can I determine which aircraft best suit my needs?
  • What basic vocabulary should I know? (charter, jet card, FBO, empty leg, etc.)
