Flexible, Cost-Effective Solutions To Provide Jet Aircraft Availability Where And When You Need It


Whether you choose to charter or lease a business aircraft depends upon your needs and requirements
If you fly only on rare occasions, aircraft charter may be all you need. You pay for each flight,standby time and any catering you order, plus a Federal Excise Tax (presently 7.5%). Premiere Aviation can smoothly and affordably handle all of your aircraft charter needs, including helping you select and procure the aircraft most appropriate for your specific needs and requirements.


A cost-effective alternative to chartering is leasing an aircraft for your annual use
Leasing provides you with the ability to schedule and utilize the aircraft on an as-needed basis. This access is limited to just a small group of customers, so that your leased aircraft is shared by no more than a dozen clients. At Premiere Aviation, our minimum lease usage is 25 hours per year, which is very similar to the jet cards offered by many of the fractional aircraft ownership companies. The big difference between those companies and us is cost. In addition to aircraft charter and leasing, Premiere Aviation is also a leader in the field of Aerodynamic Refinement. We’ve equipped over 250 business aircraft with our patented Speed Covers, resulting in significant gains in both performance and fuel efficiency, keeping your costs substantially lower.


It costs about 60% less to lease an aircraft then to to charter a comparable aircraft
Leasing offers you far more operational flexibility. And there’s a very good reason why Premiere Aviation chooses the Cessna 421C Golden Eagle: literally the best suited cabin class business plane for today’s “budget-conscious, energy-conscious” traveler who simply does not have enough time and too much stress. The Golden Eagle provides turbine engine quietness and smoothness while offering the safest, largest, quietest cabin class twin ever produced.


Choosing a pilot that you like and feel comfortable with is another advantage of aircraft leasing
You can select the pilot of your choice, unlike a charter plane that has  pilots flying a variety of aircraft. Premiere Aviation offers select pilots for you to choose from that fly only that plane, of course you also have the option of providing your own pilot. Pilots charge by the flight-hour, half-day, or full day, as appropriate.


Unlike a charter, if you lease a plane and it’s not scheduled for another flight, keep it and return at your convenience
This is yet another of the many advantages of sharing the plane with only a few other lease customers. In contrast, a chartered plane has to get back to its home base and subsequently return to pick you up, doubling the cost of your flight by paying for two round-trips.

Stress Reduction

We all have many things we want/need to accomplish in a day, the problem is we run out of time or our schedule gets out of sync with the rest of our day. And that is where the stress starts to build. What can we do when the meeting runs long, itineraries change, etc. With your own business plane, you make your schedule to contour to your changing needs and desires. Forget TSA, airport crowds, driving through traffic to get to the main airport, fly out of any of the Bay Area 12 airports closer to work or home and even better, fly into a destination closer to your real destination. This will save you time, eliminate your stress and give you the flexibility to change your flight schedule whenever you need to. Saving time is an element of your whole flight operation, so besides reducing stress you are saving time and more importantly using it more effectively.

Cruising Speed and Time Effectiveness

With the majority of business trips averaging 250 miles or less, cruising speed is not going to save you much time. Premiere Aviation’s Golden Eagle can use thousands more airports then the comparable business jet, which translates to less ground travel time to get to the ultimate destination.Net time savings in a jet for 250 miles or less is negligible. Flying direct from point A to B is the main key to time efficiency coupled with being able to use the time while enroute productively. Whether working on a laptop, having a meeting in the conference seats or just unwinding alone and at peace, using a business plane is a strong way to “de-stress”.

Selecting the Right Aircraft For Your Mission Profile

True Operating Costs and Keeping Them in Check

Operating costs are a big factor in a business aircraft. Premiere has refined the costs of the Cessna Golden Eagle with over 30 years operating them. Staying ahead of maintenance is assured while minimizing costs and downtime. Using a plane that fulfills the mission without having too much airplane/speed/cabin is key and our Limited Edition surpasses anything that has a cabin similar in size with a whopping 20% improvement of fuel economy. This means it costs less to get there going faster and you can carry more passengers and baggage since you do not need as much fuel.

Aircraft Efficiency and Going Green

How do you improve the fuel efficiency of a well designed aircraft? Leave it to the engineers at Premiere Aviation; design and patent a wheel cover that  improves airflow over the lower wing, improving climb, cruising speed and safety. Add engine and fuel injection tuning that surpasses any aircraft maintenance shop practices and you now have something poised to go well into the 21st Century with stamina. What Cessna forget to do right, Premiere Aviation has taken the reins and applied refinements that truly make the Cessna Golden Eagle special.

Baggage Capacity

Most business jets have baggage behind the engines where the baggage compartment is short and boxy, with only one access door. The design of the nose of the Cessna Golden Eagle is long and thin, with 3 access doors, putting skis, snow boards, golf clubs, mountain bikes or other cumbersome items is now a breeze. Many small jet flights will have to drag the baggage through the cabin door to store it in the aft cabin where there are no windows, inconvenient and a pain! Carry-on baggage is for baggage you want or need to get access to; not all of the baggage!
