New to Priester Aviation? Looking to charter a flight or how we provide corporate aircraft management? Review our answers to these frequently asked questions to see if your concerns have been addressed. Please contact us for specific requests or information.
Our processes and procedures allow us to manage aircraft all over the globe. Theoretically, your aircraft will only be at its home base 50% of the time when in use. We coordinate and monitor each flight 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Should a problem arise, we will work with our network of partners to address any needs while you are traveling.
Yes, we manage both Parts 91 and 135 aircraft. Our business model is not dependent upon charter revenue.
You call the shots. We will work to customize the right balance of charter and owner hours. Your access takes priority over any charter opportunities.
Absolutely. We will customize the program around your needs. You may only require crewing or maintenance support. We can address the specific aircraft management requirements you have without getting services you don’t require.
We never mark up an invoice. Our only fee is the management fee or charter commission. Through our owner portal, you can see details about your trips and aircraft as well as every receipt that is charged back to you providing you with complete transparency.
No membership fees or deposits required. Pay as you go.
Request a charter quote for an itinerary online, or contact us directly. You will be provided several options to choose from and sign the contract that fits best. It’s that easy. Payment and trip details will be required closer to the date of departure.
On-demand charter relies on market pricing based upon aircraft ability and current market conditions, therefore, the aircraft and the price you receive on a trip could be significantly different than the price you receive for the same trip at a later date.
On-demand charter gives you complete flexibility over your aircraft. Priester makes every effort to secure your aircraft request but the scheduling timeframe for your trip and availability can limit options.
In order to ensure Centerline members receive the highest client service and to ensure fleet availability, we are limiting how many members we will accept into the program. It is important we maintain the exclusivity of the program.
Flexibility is essential for you and this program. Upgrades and downgrades are absolutely available but not guaranteed. When you bought your first card, we invited you to Centerline because we researched the fleet and knew there were enough assets to provide you an exceptional service. Upgrades and downgrades are absolutely available at the appropriate Centerline pricing but the service isn’t guaranteed. But it suffices to say, in our Centerline regions there is a high probability you’ll get exactly what you wish. However, if you know you will frequently need an upgrade or a downgrade you may consider buying multiple Centerline Jet Cards so you can ensure guaranteed service.
You will know your upgrade or downgrade status within 12 hours of making your request.
Centerline provides the highest quality aircraft to our members. We only provide aircraft less than 25 years old.
Safety is a benchmark of Centerline. Priester adheres minimally to ARGUS Gold operating standards. Prior to each flight, on any Priester aircraft or partner aircraft, Priester verifies the experience of the crew and their training currency, along with ensuring the aircraft itself meets our quality standards. In addition to that, Centerline clients are additionally protected by Priester Aviation’s minimum insurance standard of $300M in liability coverage with no sublimits.
It’s all about the experience. Members may choose from an exclusive menu created for Centerline members and tailored to each specific cabin class. If you wish to have something in addition or different than what is offered on the menu, your Experience Coordinator can arrange your special request and any costs will be deducted from your account.
The vast majority of Centerline aircraft provide Wi-Fi, however some high-quality small-cabin aircraft do not. In most circumstances, Wi-Fi is complimentary. In some circumstances, typically on large cabin or long range, Wi-Fi is satellite based and will be billed separately.
Centerline clients are protected by a minimum of $300M liability insurance.
To provide the greatest service for all Centerline clients, in addition to our fleet, we have sourced high-quality aircraft from a vetted network of preferred operators. No one operator by itself, including Priester, can serve all your needs and the needs of all Centerline members. Therefore, we cannot guarantee exclusively a Priester-operated aircraft.
