Paramount Business Jets prefers to use and will recommend operators with larger fleets, to help ensure better back up aircraft options and alternate crew members if needed. This helps to further ensure a more reliable delivery of the aircraft.
Multiple Trip Options Available to Match Clients' Needs
There are many types of charter operators, each utilizing one or more of a variety of operating models to charter their aircraft. Today, approximately 30-40% of private jets are flying empty as they are positioned for new trips or they are returning empty (without passengers) to their home base. Paramount Business Jets maintains relationships with thousands of providers, allowing the PBJ team of professional charter advisors to match the best value travel option to their clients' individual needs.
Traditional Fleet - A traditional charter aircraft fleet is based in one location. A flight typically originates from that airport and return to that airport. There are times when an aircraft is sitting at a nearby airport may provide a better price, even with a little repositioning of the aircraft. These aircraft are typically used more by the actual owners of the aircraft and must return back to the owner for their next trip.
Floating Fleet - While a floating fleet also typically operates from one or two home bases, the provider is able to send the aircraft on flight after flight without returning it to that central location. This is a great alternative for clients flying from one point to another, with a lengthy stay before returning or even returning to another location all together. Floating fleets are also optimal for a client who likes to book early, and not "gamble" on getting an empty leg price on their one-way flight.
These operations use very specific price-quoting models, which may include additional costs to cover repositioning legs that come up while searching for the next mission. This special pricing structure allows these aircraft to be less expensive for charter than an aircraft that would drop and return home, but are usually slightly higher than a true one-way.
Empty Legs - Significant media attention has been given to the so-called "empty leg," often touting an incredibly low price. While empty legs and one-ways do exist, they do not offer the level of savings that some would have you believe, as it is important to understand that the majority of these empty legs are traveling in the opposite direction of "normal" traffic flow patterns, making it more challenging for the operator to position their aircraft for the next trip.
An empty leg exists because an operator sold a charter flight from one point to another and now must return home. The operator may have been paid for the return already, they may have taken a gamble on finding a return buyer, or they may be trying to recoup cost for the owner's flight. That means that the operator needs to make up at least the hourly rate to get from their current location to their home base. If they need to position to a new location, that cost will be added in. These flights rarely go for under the hourly rate of the aircraft, though discounted rates may be available depending on the specific circumstances of the trip leg.

The sprawling Los Angeles, California area is home to finance and the entertainment industry, and therefore a major hub for corporate jet activity. There are a number of executive airports up and down the Southern California area that falls into the “greater LA area” from Oxnard to Orange County, and from Santa Monica out to Ontario. No matter what neighborhood of the southern Sunshine State you find yourself in, you are not far from an executive type airport. By far the most popular of these is Van Nuys, followed by Santa Ana, Long Beach and Burbank airports, comprising the 4 main executive airports in the region. Many private jet aficionados ask for flights from Santa Monica, but that airport is being excluded from the following articles because of its short runway and issues with traffic from smaller general aviation aircraft and nearby LAX. SMO is considered a dangerous airport, and from a charter standpoint is not preferred.
