Los Altos Hills City Overview

Decades before the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area became home to the world’s largest tech companies and earned its Silicon Valley nickname, wealthy San Francisco residents began spending weekend getaways, building summer estates and cottages among the region’s bucolic fruit groves.

Millions of fruit trees grew there in the mid-1900s. Their beautiful, sweet-smelling blossoms gave the region the nickname, Valley of Heart’s Delight. It was so beautiful that trains and tour buses brought visitors to Los Altos Hills and the rest of the Santa Clara Valley to see it.

Today, the town of 8,000 – many of which are Silicon Valley executives -- with views of the Santa Cruz Mountains is one of only five towns in the United States where more than half the homes for sale cost more than $2 million. The median home price is $7,755,000.

Los Altos Hills, the fifth wealthiest town in the country with an average household income of $405,000, is not to be confused with neighboring Los Altos. 

Commercial zones are banned. It has two retail stores, a bookstore at Foothills College and a gift shop run by the cloistered nuns at the Poor Clare Colettines of Immaculate Heart Monastery. Instead of sidewalks along Los Altos Hills’ narrow and winding streets, there is a pathway system, some 80 miles of trails and off-road paths that meander around and connect almost all parts of town for walkers, bicyclists, runners and horseback riders.

Los Altos Hills, which is 9 square miles of land situated on a group of small hills atop the Altamont and Monte Vista faults, seems worlds away but it is a mere 35 miles south of San Francisco, 15 miles north of San Jose, 4 miles south of Stanford University, 5 miles southwest of Google headquarters in Mountain View and 10 miles south of Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I have to stop for customs when I fly on a private jet?

    Passengers on all international private charter flights will have to stop at customs. In certain countries, you may have to go through customs at a specific port of entry; for example, you must stop in Tahiti to perform customs checks en route to Bora Bora. You’ll also need to stop at the first port of entry when entering the U.S. from Mexico.
  • How much rest does the crew need before they can depart again?

    Crew members are required to have a 10-hour rest period within each 24-hour cycle. The maximum duty day is 14 hours and must be followed by a 10-hour rest period at their hotel. When scheduling a flight, operators usually account for 12 hours of rest instead of 10. This extra two hours allows the crew time to get to their hotel, rest for the required time, and return to the airport.
  • How long does a fuel stop for a private jet flight take?

    The average fuel stop takes 45–60 minutes. To speed up fuel stops, the operator or pilots may call ahead so a fuel truck is waiting for the aircraft on arrival. For smaller jets, a fuel stop can take as little as 30 minutes.
  • Will my private jet charter use the same airport as a commercial airline?

    Yes, when you charter a private jet you can access the same airports as a commercial airline. However, using a large mainstream airport like Los Angeles International or London Heathrow is often a bad choice for private jets, as flying to a smaller regional airport is much faster and often makes for a more luxurious experience.
  • Is the age of an aircraft a safety factor?

    Aircraft age is not a safety factor. However, if the aircraft is older and hasn’t been refurbished properly, it may cause flyers some inconvenience such as overheating, faulty air conditioning, or faulty plumbing in the lavatory.
  • How much luggage am I allowed to bring on a private jet?

    As a rule of thumb, each seat on a light or midsize jet equates to one passenger and one item of luggage. Each item of luggage is considered to be the standard 23 kilograms, or about 50 lbs. Large jets are designed for long-range trips which typically involve longer stays, so you can carry more than one item of luggage per person.
  • Are there aircraft that are wheelchair accessible?

    There are many aircraft which are wheelchair accessible. Most of them are large jets or above and have a straight aisle. If the jet has a zigzag aisle – like the Falcon 900 – it will be difficult to maneuver the wheelchair onboard the aircraft. You’ll also need the right type of wheelchair; many motorized wheelchairs won’t fit and can’t be collapsed. If this is the case, you’ll need a smaller, temporary wheelchair. Some aircraft operators have smaller wheelchairs that can be used.
  • Can I fly with large sums of cash?

    Yes, you can. This is a common occurrence for many private jet clients. You can fly with up to $5 million in cash as long as you declare that cash when coming through customs. For domestic trips, there’s no limit and no need to declare it.
  • Which private jets come with flight attendants?

    In the United States, large jets and above are required to have flight attendants onboard; in Europe, flight attendants are used on midsize jets and above. Flight attendants require their own seat. Larger jets and above have a jump seat near the cockpit for the flight attendant to use, meaning the attendant generally stays out of the cabin.
  • Which airports offer ramp access, allowing the client to drive their car right up to their private jet?

    Private jet clients can often have a limo drive them right up to the private jet, or even drive their own car to the plane. That said, different airports have different policies and some may not offer ramp access.
  • Do private jets come with Wi-Fi?

    Many private jets do have Wi-Fi, and it’s increasingly available free of charge on U.S. domestic flights. On international flights, prices range from $3.00-$8.50 USD per megabyte used. This means that opening up social media sites that are rich in images and videos could quickly cost you $20 – and downloading a feature-length movie could cost thousands!
  • When is on-demand private jet charter better than buying a block of hours?

    Private jet charter can be a lot cheaper than buying a block of hours for a one-way flight, as you can access floating fleets or an empty leg to reduce the cost. With a block of hours, the price covers a round trip. If you only fly one-way, you are effectively paying double.
  • What is a carbon-neutral flight?

    Every aircraft burns jet fuel and emits a certain amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. This can be offset via one of several carbon offset programs that allow private jet clients to purchase a certain number of carbon credits to offset the emissions from their flight. A carbon-neutral flight is one that offsets the carbon emissions it uses via a formal process.
  • Can I have a flexible departure time for my private jet flight?

    Yes, it is possible to have a flexible departure when flying privately. Operators typically offer a two-hour window, but you can request a longer window as long as it doesn’t interfere with the maximum crew duty day or their next scheduled flight.
  • When should I hire a Boeing Business Jet?

    Boeing Business Jets (BBJs) have unique amenities that extend far beyond sheer size and are often equipped with 1-2 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms (one more of those bathrooms may even offer stand-up showers.) These airliner-based executive aircraft also feature tall or ‘stand-up’ cabins that are also longer and wider than more typical corporate aircraft.
  • How soon can I have a private jet ready from the time I call in the request?

    If you’re using a fractional model or fixed-rate hourly jet cards, you’ll need to provide 10-12 hours’ notice for a private jet request. But at Paramount Business Jets, we pride ourselves on achieving a 4-hour turnaround for on-demand charter and ad hoc clients.
  • Can I access my luggage while in flight?

    On most private jets, you will be able to access your luggage during the flight. That’s because luggage and passengers are situated on the same level. This is in contrast to commercial airlines, where checked luggage is stored in a cargo hold. On large private jets, luggage is often stored in a compartment behind the lavatory, which means easy access to your bags.
  • When are private jet charter landing and takeoff slots applicable?

    A landing or take off slot is simply a small window of time in which your aircraft is scheduled to fly in or out of the airport. You will need a landing and takeoff slot if you fly to a high-density airport in the United States, or one that is hosting a special event with a significant number of aircraft arriving and departing. If you’re flying internationally, you will need a landing and takeoff slot for all major cities in Europe.
  • What kind of inflight catering is available on a private jet?

    Other than the standard snacks and drinks, you can order local cuisine options for your catering on board. In short, anything that doesn’t need to be cooked can be ordered; hot food must be precooked then warmed on board.
  • Can I bring pets with me on private jet flights?

    Of course! Just let us know in advance. the majority of the operators and aircraft owners allow pets onboard. In some cases a small cleaning fee may apply. That said, there are specific requirements that must be met when traveling with your pet, including making sure that all documentation and vaccination records for your pet(s) are correct and up to date. Dogs and cats must also be at least eight weeks old and weaned when traveling within the U.S.
