The operation of a jet aircraft is a complex undertaking. A variety of experience and capability must be employed in order to ensure the machine is operated safely, legally, and efficiently. The owner of a jet is faced with the expensive prospect of hiring the staff members necessary to support a flight operation, or the time-consuming development of the necessary skills in-house. Chartright Air Group offers an effective solution to this dilemma.
Chartright Air maintains a complete infrastructure of aviation expertise. All aviation business aspects including Operations, Reservations, Maintenance, Purchasing, Accounting, Regulatory Compliance and Safety Management are provided underneath the Chartright umbrella. The owner of a jet aircraft subscribed to Chartright’s management service receives a complete turn-key Aviation Department, but at a fraction of the cost.
As a manager, Chartright Air Group will assume regulatory custody of a client’s aircraft and will create a Management Agreement identifying the terms of custody. Chartright’s Management Agreement’s are fluid and identify the specific business and operational requirements of individual clients. Once identified, these requirements form the basis of the “performance relationship” between the client and Chartright.
Chartright will provide professionally trained pilots to fly the aircraft, suitably licensed engineers to maintain the aircraft, and the Dispatch staff to ensure that all details necessary to the operation of the aircraft (catering, ground transport, hotels, etc.) are a simple phone call away. Insurance, hangar, training and regulatory compliance are all arranged by Chartright.
An Owner-client wishing to arrange a flight on his or her aircraft simply contacts the Chartright Air 24/7 Operations Department and provides trip details. Every other detail of the flight is arranged by Chartright.
In addition to ease of use, Owner-clients also receive the benefit of Chartright’s purchasing power. Substantial savings in fuel, insurance, training, and maintenance are commonplace. And, for those owners who wish to have their aircraft made available for charter, Chartright maintains a significant Sales & Marketing office which is able to sell large portions of unused capacity into the charter market. The average managed aircraft in the Chartright fleet generates well over $800,000 dollars per year in charter revenue.
All Chartright pilots train annually on the finest, full-visual/motion simulators available from Flight Safety International and receive annual and bi-annual medical examinations. Chartright pilots are not crossed-trained (i.e. expected to fly different types of aircraft). Every pilot is assigned to a single aircraft type thereby allowing all of their training efforts to be dedicated to that type alone. Each pilot is expected to remain expert on the single aircraft type they are assigned to.
Chartright pilots are assisted in their duties by a full range of operational support staff and a well developed/tested series of operational directives. All pilots are bound by confidentially agreements.
Chartright is a Transport Canada Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) licensed to maintain a wide variety of aircraft. Chartright’s aircraft maintenance engineers receive regular training on the aircraft types they work on and are able to perform a broad range of maintenance tasks at each base airport location.
The Chartright Air Group Dispatch Office is available to clients 24/7 and is the primary conduit for communication between the client and Chartright. Chartright does not employ an answering service – all calls are answered by a Chartright staff member regardless of the time of day.
Chartright’s Flight Operations personnel are highly trained individuals responsible for the scheduling and dispatching of client aircraft. Whether the aircraft is engaged for charter or by the Owner, a Chartright Dispatcher will exercise operational control and ensure each flight itinerary is fully planned and resources appropriately assigned.
The average managed aircraft in the Chartright fleet generates over $800,000 dollars per year in charter revenue.
