The Piper Aztec can seat up to 4-6 passengers very comfortably.

"Piper Aztec Airplane, Information!"

When Cessna would come out with a new model, the other two members of GA's Big Three would develop a model that would carry more, go faster, go farther or whatever.

Case in point: when Cessna upgraded its 310, Piper countered by adding a fifth seat and bigger engines to its Apache, thus creating the PA-23-250 Aztec.

The first really big change came about in 1962, when Piper introduced the Aztec B.

With its longer nose and bigger cabin—now with room for a sixth seat—the B model ushered in the big, brawny, beefy Aztec look that everyone is familiar with today.

Two years later, Piper again enhanced the model's appearance and performance and brought out the Aztec C.

Produced between 1964 and 1968 and featuring streamlined engine nacelles, it was by far the most popular of the Aztecs.

Standard equipment on Aztec C airplanes included fiberglass gear doors, fuel injection, dual alternators a…

The Islander Airplane is one of the bigger ones for aircraft transport.


The original Islander was designed with an emphasis upon providing ease of access within the short haul sector to remote locations as a safe, efficient, and profitable transport aircraft.

It has been regularly used by such operators, including the frequent use of unprepared rough airstrips and from challenging terrain.

The Islander being capable of short takeoff and landing (STOL) operations. The low load height and wide side doors provide for easy access for passenger and cargo operations.

While the aircraft's ability to maintain a high takeoff frequency has led to the type's use for parachuting.

Designed as a small and inexpensive commuter/utility aircraft, various cabin configurations and equipment loadouts are available to suit a wide variety of different purposes.

These include charter flights, scheduled flights, agricultural uses, aerial firefighting, air freight VIP/executiv…

The Diamond DA 50 is one of the smallest planes out there for private aircraft charter.

"The Diamond DA50 Plane"

Comfortable access for all on board is very easy through the two forward gull wing doors and the large cargo door that provides access to the rear seats and cargo compartment.

Baggage is stowed in the generous rear of the cabin, offering maximum loading capability for any kind of mission.

Luxury features everywhere: premium leather interiors (leather and stitching in different colors) with soft furnishings, texalium fabric inlays, middle armrest, LED lighting, fresh air inlets, optional electric air conditioning and more.

Diamond Aircraft surprised showgoers at Aero Friedrichshafen in Germany by unveiling three versions of the new DA50 high-performance single, all of them powered by diesel engines.

Perhaps the biggest surprise was that the new flagship singles won’t be powered by engines sourced from Diamond’s own Austro Engines subsidiary, but rather by French producer Safran SMA.

The Turbo Station Air is an airplane with a turbo prop engine.


"Turbo Stationair: Information!"

Unlike with some Cessna models, the turbo version of the 206 was available nearly from the start.

"Turbo Stationair Exterior"

The 206 was a surprise winner of that process, one of only three piston models to make the cut.

Casual observers often incorrectly state the level of improvement to the Cessna lineup that took place when the company relaunched production.

The new 206, like the 172 and 182, was certified under Part 23, a far more stringent set of standards than the old Car 3, under which the original airplanes had been approved.

The Cessna TTX is a great way to travel and the most cost effective.


It has been more than a dozen years since the introduction of a new breed of airplanes — starting with Cirrus Aircraft’s SR20 and SR22.

cessna TTx inside
These composite-construction, fixed-gear, high-powered speedsters boasted innovative design features and high-tech avionics.

Today, these airplanes have become so much a part of the fabric of the general aviation fleet that it’s easy to forget that not too long ago they were the stuff of science fiction, or at least the futuristic-looking kit-built world.

It’s heartening to see that Cessna has not moved away from single-engine production over the past few years, as many feared might happen as business slowed during the economic downturn.

After a production hiatus of almost two years, the TTx, which was newly recertified last summer, is back and not only ready to go but also ready to compete in the high-performance single-engine marketplace.

The Cessna Skylane is one of the most cost effective planes out of all the private aircraft.


What is there left to say about the Cessna Skylane?

You'd think not much. After all, it's an airplane that's been in production (with one decade-long break in production from the mid-80's to the mid-90's) since 1956.

During that time Cessna has built more than 20,000 Skylanes, making it one of the most popular models ever, and arguably the most popular non-training model period.

The 182, or Skylane (as it's been called since its second year on the market), isn't the fastest four-seater in the sky, it's not the sleekest, the most modern looking or the most technologically advanced.

Whether that job is hauling a load from one side of a rural county to the other or flying four friends to a vacation resort three states away. It's an extremely versatile airplane.

Never before has risk avoidance been so simple and intuitive. Rising terrain areas or low-altitude flyi…

The Cessna Danali is one of the newest private aircraft made by Cessna.

"CESSNA DENALI, Information"

The Cessna Denali, previously know as the Textron Single Engine TurboProp (SETP), is a single engine turboprop aircraft made by Cessna, announced at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015.

It should compete with the Pilatus PC-12 and Daher-Socata TBM, as well as other new projects such as the One Aviation Kestrel K-350 and the CAIGA Primus 150.

The Cessna 421 is a very popular private aircraft.

Cessna broke into a totally new unexplored field in the mid-sixties with the introduction of the first pressurized, air-conditioned aircraft with conference seating with the introduction of the Cessna Golden Eagle.

A derivative of the Cessna 411, the 421 had geared engines too which made it very quiet in the cabin.

The idea of a business machine that provided airline creature comforts in a compact package was new, and the introduction of the 421 in 1968 was truly cutting edge for Cessna.

Business travel was a new concept and there were few alternatives that could provide the comforts we were getting accustomed to having.

The Bonaza G36 is one of the smallest private planes out there for charter.



When the subject of legendary light airplanes comes up, one of the names certain to be mentioned early in the conversation is the Beechcraft Bonanza.

"The Single Engine multi-piston planes are priced the best and can go for as low at $600 per hour."

It's a hard notion to reconcile. With a bright and colorful flat-panel avionics suite, hand-sewn leather seats and a quiet and powerful air-conditioner, this classic is clearly a modern, impeccably detailed airplane in every respect.

The Baron is far from the only example of this — from C-130s to J-3 Cub clones to Cessna Skylanes, good designs tend to stick around.

The Aerostar Private Aircraft is a great way to travel.

"AEROSTAR Aircraft, Information!"

Designed by aviation legend Ted Smith, the Aerostar twin has been around for more than 40 years, though it's been out of production for more than 20.

"Aerostar Aircraft Charter"
aerostar plane, flight charter, charter airplane
Like every airplane Smith designed-he was the brains behind the Aero Commander series of twins and the Jet Commander, one of the first bizjets-the Aerostar light twin was intentionally overbuilt from the get-go.

The idea, and Smith wasn't shy about saying so, was that with a beefy airframe the design could continue to grow in performance over time, including the possible adoption of turbofan engines.

Toward that end, the Aerostar has wing skins twice as thick as typical piston twins, triple wing spars and a tail that withstood 14 Gs during initial certification tests.

Fortunately for the owners of the roughly 600-700 Aerostars that are still on the …

Multi-piston Aircraft are the most cost efficient out of all the private aircraft.

The Piper Cheyenne prototype first flew in 1969. Designated the PA-31T-620, it was essentially a turboprop evolution of the Piper PA-31 Navajo.

It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-28 turboprops rated at 620 hp (460 kW) each.

The Nextant 90 is one of the most popular Turboprop aircraft.


"NEXTANT G90XT, Information!"

The cabin shell includes new air ducting to improve comfort. The new seats are fully articulating.

The new production interior was ready to install when the G90XT returned to Cleveland after AirVenture.

The G90XT does not have the single-lever power control, which was designed in partnership with GE’s Unison Industries.

For pilots, the new power levers make flying much easier because they are tied to single-channel electronic engine controls

Because so many modifications are done to the G90XT, Nextant engineers developed a new flight manual to reflect the changes.

The maintenance manuals include new material for the new engines and systems, and an ATA chapter reference tells the technician exactly where to go in the manuals for pertinent information.

The aircraft shown at Oshkosh is the first G90XT remanufactured by Nextant and the fourth C90 ever built.

It has about 13,000 hours on the airframe. …

"Central Jet Charter Inc., & The King Air 90."

Since its incorporation in 1932, Beech Aircraft was a successful builder of civil and military aircraft.

The design was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of aluminium construction with retractable tricycle landing gear.

To improve its utility and safety in changing flight conditions, standard equipment, that had been optional on the Queen Air.

This includes de-icing boots on the leading edges of the wings, fin, and tail plane.

The Model 90 had two seats in the cockpit and four reclining passenger seats facing each other in the cabin, with options for a two or three-place couch for passengers.

Air conditioning and soundproofing also improved passenger comfort in the cabin.

Two 500-hp P&W Canada PT6A-6 turboprop engines with three-blade Hartzell propellers gave the King Air a top ceiling of 27,400 feet and a range of 1,565 miles at 270 mph.

The 350 is a rare airplane that can carry full fuel and full seats, and it can do it under extreme conditions.

"King Air 350 Charter Flights"
king air 350 flights, private aircraft charter, private airplane charter
High air temperature robs all airplanes of takeoff performance, but the 350 has enough margin to safely take off at maximum weight at sea level on a 126º F day.

Move up to Denver and it can still take off at maximum weight on a 90º F day.

And if for some reason you need to fly a short hop, no problem, because the maximum landing weight is the same as max takeoff, 15,000 pounds. If you guessed the landing gear and air frame structure must be super strong, you'd be right.

That means pilots must have a type rating to fly it and must observe minimum runway requirements that assure a margin of safety if an engine fails during takeoff, just as the rules do in jets.
