SimpleCharters is leading a disruption to the private aviation market. Our mission is simple-- it’s to make private aviation better, faster, and less expensive.

We’re doing this by tearing down the barriers to entry, bringing transparency to an opaque market, and disintermediating the high margin middleman. We’re helping pilots, crew, operators, and aircraft owners run more efficient, profitable businesses while providing our customers with the best experience possible.

We won’t let you down.

Things You Might Hear From Our Competitors...

"Their planes aren't safe"

Here’s the best kept secret in the market.

Everyone uses the exact same aircraft, pilots, and crew for every single flight. Whether you’re flying with a broker, jet card, membership, operator, or any other legal outfit, you’re flying on the same “third-party audited, FAA approved Part 135 aircraft.”

They’ll throw around fancy terms, tell you that only a tiny fraction of the available aircraft meet their standards, that only their pilots have been background checked or flown on the simulator 2x a year. The honest truth is that we all rely on the exact same group of third-party rated aircraft and crew in this highly regulated industry.

"We’ll beat their price-- everytime."

If you’ve flown enough in this market, you’ll know the usual tricks. Low volume, high margin companies will happily sell a flight at a loss to earn a new customer by cutting corners on safety, amenities, and scheduling knowing they’ll make it up next time.

SimpleCharters is transparent and consistent, meaning you’ll pay the same market-based prices every single time.

"There’s no way to tell if a plane is available, it’s too complicated."

We have advanced machine learning algorithms that are running continuously, monitoring hundreds of proprietary data sources. They don’t. In plain english-- our technology does it 100x better than anyone else.

"They’re a startup, we’re the largest private aviation company in the world."

While we are a startup, we’re a venture-backed company with a profitable business model. And did you know this market has no real market leader? It’s so heavily fragmented that no one actually has more than a 10% market share.

"Once you book, they’ll call you and ask for more money"

Patently false. SimpleCharters is proud to offer a 100% money back guarantee, so in the rare event that we’re unable to fulfill your flight, you’ll receive a complete refund.

Better, Faster,
Less Expensive

While other companies are focused on membership fees and forced commitments, we're focused on doing one thing exceptionally well: getting you safely to your destination in comfort, style, and security.

Without the Lifestyle Tax we can provide the best pricing for the highest quality private flights.
