Tips for First Time Private Travelers


At Priester, we understand that your time is valuable. Choosing to fly privately affords time savings, convivence, and flexibility, unlike any other mode of transportation. For those who have never flown private, you may be unsure what to expect. Priester Aviation strives to make the travel experience hassle-free and luxurious.

If you are preparing to fly privately for the first time with Priester Aviation, here is what you can expect.

  • Ultimate Convenience: Trade paid parking and long security lines for the ease of walking right up to your aircraft. Arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time and you are on your way. Your aircraft will be stocked upon arrival with catering if you choose, as well as refreshments. Additionally, private aircraft typically have access to nearly 3,000 general aviation airports that are closer to your final destination, compared to only 500 commercial airports that are accessible via the airlines. This not only shortens your overall travel time, but also makes for a smoother journey from start to finish.
  • Professional Service: Priester Aviation works for you. We have the means necessary to ensure that your trip goes seamlessly. Our extensive team works around te clock to ensure your trip goes according to plan. This includes coordinating ground transportation, handling special requests, and providing real-time updates. Additionally, upon arrival back to your vehicle, you can expect a clean car, so your journey home is as pleasant as your flight.
  • Baggage: Commercial travelers often wonder if their bag is over the weight limit, resulting in fewer items being brought with them. With Priester Aviation, we communicate with you prior to your trip to understand the quantity and types of items (skis, golf bags, etc.) you will be bringing so that we can recommend the aircraft best suited for your mission.
  • Privacy: On a private flight, there is no need to worry about distractions from other passengers. This allows for ample time to catch up on work, host a conference call with colleagues, rest, or converse with your travel partners. The cabin is yours to enjoy, whether that means focusing on business tasks, unwinding with entertainment, or simply relaxing in a quiet environment.
  • Safety: Priester Aviation is among the top 1% of charter operators who have received top safety accreditations. We go beyond industry standards to ensure our flight crews and operations staff exceed training standards, enabling them to provide the safest flight. Our reputation in the industry allows us to attract the most skilled and seasoned flight crews. To provide full disclosure, we grant the FAA 24/7 real-time access to our operational and maintenance data, allowing continuous oversight. Your comfort and security are paramount from takeoff to landing.
  • Personalized Experience: One of the standout benefits of flying private is the level of personalization available. Every aspect of your journey can be tailored to your preferences, from the type of aircraft to in-flight amenities or even special celebration requests. Whether you require specific dietary accommodations, particular beverages, or customized entertainment options, Priester Aviation will ensure that your flight experience exceeds your expectations.
  • Flexible Scheduling: Unlike commercial flights, private jet charters offer the flexibility to schedule your flight according to your needs. If you need to adjust your departure time or make last-minute changes to your itinerary, our team is ready to accommodate you. This flexibility is particularly beneficial for business travelers with tight schedules or families looking to optimize their vacation.
