Today I'm happy to announce the next steps forward in the evolution of SimpleCharters: the ability to choose the perfect aircraft for each and every trip. As the experienced traveler knows, each and every charter trip is different. Different climates, different airports, specialized requests and cargo, luxury and comfort requirements, and more. We want you to be able to fly à la carte, choosing the ideal aircraft for your unique needs, every time.
We currently offer a wide array of different types of aircraft, including SR-22 pistons, ideal for flying up to 3 people on short trips. We have a variety of turboprops, such as the Pilatus PC-12 and the King Air series, which walk an incredible line between performance and cost. And finally, we have jets. Everything ranging from the smaller Citations to the newest Gulfstream G5 series, allowing you to fly virtually anywhere in the world in the utmost luxury. Today, we add helicopters to the mix.
The Robinson R66 is a Rolls-Royce RR300 turboshaft powered helicopter, that is capable of seating 4 people in its spacious cabin. The R66 is ideal for flying trips less than 3 hours, which can move passengers up to 375 miles nonstop. This chopper is also equipped with pop-out emergency floats for greater safety when flying over water. SimpleCharters has one R66 available for charter.
The Robinson R44 is the smaller sister to the R66. It's a Lycoming six cylinder powered helicopter, which comfortably holds 3 passengers in its equally spacious cabin. The R44 cruises at 134 mph and can fly nonstop for about 300 miles. SimpleCharters has two R44s available for charter.
