[Easemakers Podcast E47] Exploring the options for private aviation

In this episode of the Easemakers Podcast, private aviation expert and Corporate Aviation CEO Ryan Hall breaks down the options for flying privately.

Your principal wants to trade the hassle of commercial flights for a world-class private jet experience. How do you find the right experience for their travel needs?

Ryan Hall is a private aviation expert and the CEO of Corporate Aviation, a consulting firm designed to help individuals and corporations figure out the right private jet travel solution for their needs.

In a new episode of the Easemakers Podcast, he breaks down three private aviation options. Tune in to hear his expert tips and questions to ask when you’re trying to figure out the right solution, including:

  • How to calculate the real pricing for owning a private aircraft
  • The pros of buying a private jet (peace of mind that the plane is always ready) and the pros of relying on charter flights (flexibility — sometimes you need a light jet for a quick flight from New York to Miami, sometimes you need a large cabin for a roundtrip vacation for a family of 10 to the Caribbean, sometimes you need a long-range airliner for overnight flights from western Canada to France)
  • Why someone with 200+ flight hours per year may choose to invest in a business jet or private jet
  • When it makes sense to work with a concierge private jet charter broker
  • What goes into planning a successful private jet flight and what you need to know ahead of time (from wi-fi requirements to FAA regulations to how to access the private terminal)
