Nanette, just wanted you to know that the charter flight came off very well. The snow was pounding down when we departed yesterday morning, AA had an inbound 757 slip off the Jackson runway mid-day, the airport reopened late in the day, and we came back in unaffected about 6:00pm! It worked out just like you thought it would -- thanks again.

The Citation Ultra jet and its FAA certified operator are third-party safety rated by Wyvern LTD. Information on charter safety ratings is at Safety Rated Jet Charter Operators. Pictured here is the Citation jet chosen.

A Tale Of Two Ski Trip Jet Charters

A Private Jet Charter Review
January 4, 2011
A Hollywood entertainment celebrity returned to New Flight Charters based in Jackson Hole for help with a 10-day snowboarding trip from Los Angeles to Vail, Colorado.  He requested a light or midsize jet for his 4 passengers, their luggage and snowboards.  New Flight Charters recommended researching the private jet market for two one-way discounted flights, instead of the traditional drop-off and pick-up flights (two round trips) with aircraft from a jet charter directory.

The traditional charter quoted $18,000-$22,700 with light jets, and $24,100-$27,200 with midsize jets.  Flight times are approximately 2 hours each way.

For the outbound flight New Flight Charters located several light and midsize jets available one-way from $7,041-$8,815. 
The group chose a midsize jet Learjet 45 one-way for $7,293 all-inclusive:
The Learjet 45 chosen for jet charter one-way flight to Eagle/Vail CO

For the return flight 10 days later, New Flight Charters located several light and midsize jets available from $7,517-$9,728. 
The group took advantage of a midsize Learjet 55 for $7,517 all-inclusive:

Thus, the group few private midsize jets for a total of $14,800 all-included...less than the cost of traditional light jet charters.
There was nothing 'discount' however about the aircraft, crews and operator, which were highly safety-rated: FAA Certified, ARG/US rated and Wyvern Approved.  Learn more about jet charter safety with New Flight Charters.

Press Release: Increased Private Jet Activity for 4th Quarter 2010 Reported by Jackson Hole’s New Flight Charters

Growth in Demand for Private Jets – Charters Increase Over 2009

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. – Jackson Hole-based private jet charter industry leader New Flight Charters reports a 15.4% client spending increase in private air charters for the 4th Quarter 2010, over the comparable quarter 2009. 

While New Flight Charters handled 232 flights during the quarter for a 5% increase, more revealing is the average charter booking amount increased 21.2% year-over-year, to $17,630.  Thus overall private jet flight consumers in late 2010 were chartering higher-end aircraft, longer flights, or both. 

More private fliers are chartering jets.  During 4th Quarter 2010, jet aircraft comprised 77% of all private charters booked through the company, up from 70% in 2009.  The remaining charters were mostly turboprop aircraft.  Light jet activity increased the most, up 31% year-over-year.  The most popular light jets during the quarter were the Citation V/Ultra, Learjet 31 and the Citation CJ series.

“The take-away from the quarter is that private fliers overall have begun flying more and moving up in aircraft.  Many are moving into jets from the more economical turboprops, especially in the Jackson Hole market.” said Rick Colson, New Flight Charters’ president.  Colson also states the company’s service level and leading operator, aircraft and pricing availabilities contributed to the increases.

Update on American Airlines 757 Off Jackson Hole Runway

Pilot or systems malfunction? A video taken by a passenger aboard the aircraft during landing shows the left engine reverser attempt to deploy, then close, then slowly fully deploy but 27 seconds after touchdown. The engines spool up but only on the last section of runway before the aircraft goes off  the end of the runway into the snow. The wing spoilers appear to never deploy.

From AVweb aviation News:



No breaking action appears to happen until this last estimated 1000 feet or less of runway.  So the question seems to focus on the deployment of the 757's engine reversers and spoilers. 

These photos were taken January 1 of the AA Boeing 757 still out of service at Jackson Hole airport.  A crew, who appear to be investigators and/or maintenance technicians, is looking over the engine in question, opening and closing the reverser panel.

A crew looks over the American Airlines 757 engine reverser at Jackson Hole Airport on January 1.  In this photo the panel appears partially open as in the video.
