By David Riley

It has been said often that there are private jets, and then there are Gulfstreams.  The word itself evokes a sense of something special and could even be regarded a pop-culture icon in itself.  Gulfstream has been instrumental in making air travel one of life’s most pleasurable experiences.

Often, we travel for personal ventures, to exotic locations, to experience the Earth’s natural wonders, or to witness historic architectural beauty. Air travel is also a necessary means of transportation for those in the business industry. Commercial airports are a miserable experience for frequent fliers.

Does time spent in business flights have to be a mundane, uncomfortable, and frustrating experience? Whether your company is large or small, your aviation experience does not have to be stress-filled. You deserve to be treated with an aviation experience of comfort and privacy, that exceeds your most extravagant expectations.  Your flight experience should feel like a luxury retreat amongst the clouds and tranquil blue skies, a short vacation, between destinations. With all the stress, money, and time wasted with traditional business flights, many companies would benefit from a private jet card membership for their business travel needs.

If you are seeking a better way for your company to travel, look no further than the impressive G550 Gulfstream private jet. This aircraft first entered service in 2003, but still remains one of the best offerings in business and private aviation.  Boasting spacious cabins with up to four living areas, these jets are the epitome of luxury. Seating capacity can be up to nineteen passengers, offers three different configurations, and possesses unsurpassed amenities. The G550 Gulfstream private jet is the answer to your business aviation needs. Select Aero private jet operator and charter company that is reliable and customer satisfaction oriented.

Why Choose Private Jets for Your Business Travel Needs?

Once you experience the convenience and efficiency, not to mention the beauty, excitement, and luxury associated with private jet travel, nothing else will suffice.


The quiet, private atmosphere of private jet travel is beneficial to business travels. The tranquil atmosphere is conducive to working even while in flight. Important business information can also be discussed in confidentiality.  It is also conducive to getting caught up on much-needed sleep and rest, something any business executive greatly values with their early mornings and late days.

Space and Comfort

The emotional toll of commercial flying, particularly for larger sized people, is horrendous. Commercial airlines are notorious for undersized seats and humiliation of consumers. Some airlines will even request a heavyset person to purchase additional seats. This is an unethical and disgusting business practice. Aircraft should be tailored to customer comfort. Our clients, and your employees, need not experience this horrific, emotionally damaging experience ever again. Our spacious cabins make everyone feel comfortable.

Increased Revenue

Without the worry of unavailable flights, delays, or cancellations, you will never miss another business opportunity because of distance. More importantly, you can actually attend multiple meetings in a day, or even in multiple locations given the increased flexibility private aviation offers.

Imagine the once daunting task of business flights, becoming an experience you anticipate. Gorgeous amenities, delicious culinary treatment, and comfortable and plush seats with more than enough legroom, all whilst in the air? Your employees, once plagued by commercial airports, will be content, comfortable, and therefore, more productive. Your clients will be impressed by your commitment to your company and your care for your employees.

We believe that honesty, loyalty, and integrity are key components to a successful business and client relationship. Therefore, we strive to always be upfront, honest, and assist our clients in choosing the best private jet card package for their business, or personal needs.


We understand the caution surrounding flights with a new charter. Other charters use third-party vendors, which means the jets may not be regularly serviced, and therefore unsafe. We perform regular maintenance on all of our private jets, we also possess the records for your assurance.

Having internet access is a vital part of the business. Most people falsely assume that their private jet card membership, and selected aircraft, will offer WiFi connectivity.

We ensure that our clients, especially those on business, are well equipped with the internet connection, monitors, and technology they need.
