J.A. Air Charter offers a unique – and affordable – turnkey program that’s designed to handle the day-to-day responsibilities and management of any aircraft.
As an affiliate of J.A. Air Center, Chicago’s premier FBO, aircraft owners like you are guaranteed the best prices on fuel, parts, avionics, instruments and hangar space, not to mention maintenance, provided by the experts at this FAA Part 145-certified repair station.
When your aircraft is not in full use by you or your business, J.A. Air Charter brings an important revenue option to offset cost of ownership: offer it for charter.
Using our FAA Part 135 charter certificate, we are federally authorized to provide this valuable alternative to help owners generate revenue. Placing an aircraft in the charter program is not fitting for every owner; however, for those that choose this option, significant benefits include:
Subsidized cost of operation.
Most corporate aircraft-maintenance programs are designed around 400 hours of annual flight time. If your personal or business flight totals only 200 hours a year, your maintenance expenses may still be the same as if the aircraft was operated full-time. By adding charter hours to the aircraft, your maintenance expenses could be cut in half.
Sales tax savings.
Before the aircraft is purchased, placing it on a charter certificate may reduce or eliminate sales-tax exposure. Consult your personal tax adviser for details.
By offering your aircraft for charter in the Chicago area, you may meet other executives consistently traveling to the same destinations. This otherwise-difficult networking now becomes an important key to reducing travel costs by co-utilization.
Safety and Reliability
J.A. Air Charter concentrates on using aircraft with the latest avionics technology. As an affiliate of J.A. Air Center, we draw on more than 40 years of experience in avionics support. We believe there are direct safety benefits to equipping our pilots with the most-advanced avionics: they can better navigate the skies, and they can more-effectively manage the aircraft systems.
Today’s avionics technology delivers weather, air traffic, terrain awareness, GPS guidance, aircraft systems and engine-operation information directly to the cockpit in multiple and redundant displays. Our pilots are well trained to fly with this new technology and employ all of its important and diverse functions.
Our staff is available for demonstrations of this new avionics technology, so please contact us to schedule an appointment.
