You may think that in order to buy a plane for your business you need to be a huge corporation and you need a large, fancy jet. But that is not the case! There are thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs who have a small aircraft for business travel.
You may be thinking to yourself, “why do I need a small plane for my business? I can just use commercial flights to get around.” Here are a few reasons why your small business could benefit from owning a small plane.
Saves Time and Money
Think about your last few business trips. How much time did you spend waiting? You had to check-in at the ticket counter, go through security, wait for boarding and exiting, and wait to pick up your luggage, if you had any. Plus, the person sitting behind you keeps kicking your seat, so you cannot relax and enjoy your flight.
If your business had a plane, you could just drive up to the tarmac 15 or so minutes before your flight, go directly where you need to be, and not have to wait around. You could potentially visit multiple cities in a single day for meetings and be home in time for dinner. You could potentially save money since you do not have to pay for as many hotel rooms when you fly this way.
If there is an emergency that you need to fly to right away, you do not have to scramble to find an airline that has an empty seat left, pay a larger fee for it, and then wait for hours before you can actually leave.
It can be difficult to get much work done when you are on a commercial flight because there is so much going on around you that it is difficult to focus. You cannot work on anything sensitive since there are so many people around you.
On a private plane, there are no other people to distract you, so you can work in peace and go over sensitive information without risking security.
Easier to Get to Smaller Airports
There are hundreds — if not thousands — of tiny airports in the country that commercial airlines do not go to, so you have to rent a car and drive from the nearest big city. A small private plane can fly you to these small airports, significantly reducing your travel time.
Bring the Family Along
When you fly commercial, you may not be able to bring the family if there are no seats available. With a private plane, you can bring them with you for your trip; the dog can even come with you without the headache of taking your pup on a commercial flight. This also allows you to combine business with pleasure; you can take the family along, attend your meeting, and then spend the day enjoying the town you are in. You can explore a lot of cities this way.
These are just a few of the perks you can enjoy when you have a small plane for your business. It may not be a luxury jumbo jet, but it will get you where you need to go with less time and energy.
