LevelFlight pairs the reports with a safety score built on data taken from multiple facets of the air carrier’s operation, which include crew experience, forecasted weather conditions, estimated duty day, and flight day length. It is through this enhancement that LevelFlight can help create a more proactive charter operation from the ground up.

ROI Potential

The revenue received from chartering your aircraft, when not in use, can significantly lower your costs of ownership, but this alone doesn’t turn a profit. So the right question to ask is, “How do I create a net neutral asset?”” When evaluating this question to charter your jet, take a personal analysis of your goals, flying schedule, make/model, and age of the plane.

In terms of what this additional revenue does to your net costs, it will undoubtedly reduce them, but realistically it is hard to break even. The better way to think of it is, what does it do to your occupied hourly rate. Global Air Charters will discuss your financial metric goals and how to obtain them with your aircraft. You can leverage downtime, offset operating costs, and generate revenue.

By opting to have Global Air Charters manage your aircraft, you are turning your aircraft’s idle time into revenue. Your team of marketing professionals ensures maximum reach to an expansive retail charter client base, corporate flight departments, operators, and international broker connections.

We will feature your aircraft as a part of the Global Air Charters fleet on our website, email campaigns, social media, and in paid advertising efforts to ensure as minimal idle time as possible.
