There are three main classes of jets available for charter depending on your travel desires. Light jets have a range of about 2,000 miles and hold about 6-8 passengers. These are the smallest of the private aircraft which rent for $3,250 a flight hour. 

Robert Ettinger, the CEO of Millennium Aviation out of Reading Airport explained that “Your typical Palm Beach weekend getaway costs about $22,500 for the weekend. You have about 6 hrs of flight time plus the cost of putting the crew up for the weekend.” Palm Beach or New Orleans for Mardi Gras a Light sized aircraft might be the most affordable way to travel by private jet.

“Your midsized jets range is about 3,000 miles, still hold about 6-8 passengers though they are quite a bit more luxurious and rent for $4,250 an hour of flight time.”

“Heavy Jets hold 14-16 passengers and are suited for transcontinental and transoceanic flights. These jets rent for between $5,000 -$8,000 per hour of flight time.
