How Much Can I Bring?

How Much Luggage Can I Bring?

We hear this exact question quite often from our clients. Many times our clients have very specific luggage requirements for their trips. They may need space for golf clubs, skis, firearms for a hunting trip, a baby stroller, or any number of things, in addition to their standard luggage requirements. The easiest way to determine which aircraft will suit your individual needs, is to keep in mind that
generally as the jets get larger and have a longer range, they also have more luggage space.

In-flight access to the luggage space depends on the type of aircraft. Some planes have access from within the cabin, some only through the outside of the plane, while others have luggage space and access from both the interior and exterior of the jet.

The number of passengers on the aircraft will also determine how much luggage space will be available. The range of the aircraft
corresponds directly to the jet’s total weight, so it’s very important that the pilot and/or charter company knows exactly what luggage you will be bringing on board.

Aircraft and Luggage Specifications

If you have already determined which aircraft you will flying on or prefer to travel on a specific model of jet, take a look at our Aircraft Specs to get an idea if that jet will suit your needs in terms of
passenger and luggage capacities.

While there are no clear-cut luggage restrictions for private jets,
everything undoubtedly has to fit on the aircraft. Sometimes the runway length can also affect the amount of weight a jet can carry. Work with your aviation provider prior to traveling so you can pack accordingly and choose the best jet option for your trip.

Flying with Firearms…What you need to know.

Hawker 850

If you have a license to carry and plan to travel with your firearm(s), it is important to understand the law as it relates to carrying a firearm on a chartered private aircraft. It is most beneficial for you to inform us in advance that you would like to travel with your firearm, to avoid any interruptions or delays in your service.

As the law states:

“No person may, while on board an aircraft being operated by a
certificate holder, carry on or about that person a deadly or
dangerous weapon, either concealed or unconcealed. Section 135.119 does not apply to LEOs (law enforcement officials) or to crew members and other persons authorized by the certificate holder to carry arms.”

While this regulation appears to limit the possession of firearms on private flights, if you are granted permission by the charter operator, either directly or within its operations specs, you would be exempt from the above regulation and granted permission to carry your firearms. You may still be subject to additional regulations as well, depending on the FBO or airport’s specific regulations.

Remember to always check with us. If granted permission from the
operator, you will be able to carry firearms if it is lawful to do so at both your departure and arrival FBO or airport. If flying into an
airport, you will need to remain outside of the sterile areas and your firearms will be subject to the laws of the states in which you are
flying.

Of course, we are more than happy to answer any of your specific questions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can provide you with a flight quote or help you with anything else regarding your
private aviation needs.
