Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean by door-to-door?

Door-to-door means from the time you leave the front door of your home until you reach the door of your destination--hotel, meeting, beach, whatever. It's the total time it takes to get from Point A to Point B and includes TSA lines, pre-boarding wait, layovers, baggage wait, rental car shuttles/lines. And if you're round-tripping with me, we go home when you're ready and not when the airline says you can. 


Come on, Captain! You can't beat the airline times.

 I know.  It sounds crazy.  But...Delta wants you there 75 minutes prior to departure; I'd like you there 10 minutes before we leave--so there's an hour savings right there. Factor in how long you wait in TSA lines, baggage claim, and rental car lines, and the fact that we can land closer to your actual destination, we're very competitive.  And I still blow them away on comfort and convenience.  With them, you're one of 200 passengers.  With me, you're my only guest. . 


Can you land at smaller airports?

 Absolutely.  As long as it's paved and meets the minimum length, I can land at the hundreds of little airports in the Southeast. Most of the time my clients need to land at the small ones to be closer to their meeting/project/hunting camp.  Did you know there are a half-dozen other airports around Atlanta?  So unless your meeting's at Hartsfield, I'm going to save you time and hassles. 


What about Ground Transportation?

Most airports have rentals available. When you let us know what your ground transportation needs are we'll arrange it for you.  Rental cars can be waiting for you when we land.  Otherwise, Lyft and Uber are usually available.


Will you wait while I go to my meeting? What about overnight?

I'll wait for up to 4 hours at no additional charge,then it's $65/hour after.  If  you need to stay overnight, I only charge $450/night.  Sometimes it makes sense to have me stay overnight depending on the length of your trip. 


Will you fly outside the Southeast?

Sure! I've flown from here to Maine, Montana, and Vegas, baby in my airplane.  So while I love the South, I'll take you anywhere you want to go. Anywhere at all....

Except Mexico...there's still an angry husband holding a grudge from my younger days.  And the Caribbean--can't go there.  It's  long story but it involves a tattoo artist, a bottle of rum, a treasure map, and a well-trained capuchin.


What about weather?

Safety First.

Fortunately, we have on-board weather.  We won't be flying through thunderstorms, ice, snow, or anything I think would be an unsafe situation.   Every now and then we have to cancel flights due to weather.  


Can you fly at night?

Sure.  The airplane is equipped with everything necessary to fly at night.  Please note that there will be a $200/hour surcharge for flying between the hours 11 pm and 6 am.  But you really don't want to be out that late, and neither do I.
