    All--I'm looking for piston charter options for a flight from Georgia to NC. Whenever I search online, it seems all I get are jet companies. Any thoughts or recommendations?

    Piston you say? That's getting a little scarce. CharterHub only lists 6 Golden Eagles for the entire US, and I don't know that you'll find anything less than that available.


    Epps (PDK) has some PC-12s that they charter. Either that, or a King Air are going to be your lowest cost options, I suspect.

    Nope.

    I know of two barons in my area that are on 135's, but the majority of airplanes available for charter are turbine.

    There must be substantial cost involved in listing on charterhub. None of the pistons I knew to be on 135 certificates was listed. Call the FBOs in the area, someone may have a Seneca or know a local one man outfit who does.

    Quality Aviation has Barons. I think Lanier Flight Center at GVL still does as well

    May I ask why you prefer piston charters?

    I was thinking of Jet Logistics. The lady who crashed at GSO some years ago was a member of our club.

    Linear Air is one that I see, their images appear to have PA-28, Mooney and Cirrus airplanes in ASEL category. Might try search "air taxi" instead of charter.

    We’ve never used pistons or turboprops in the NetJets fleet.

    The only pistons I heard NetJets owned were the ones employees could rent about 12 years ago. That program went away in about 2008.
