In Northwest Florida, we know a thing or two about bad weather. While federal weather restrictions may cancel your commercial flight, your private flight will take off before a storm hits or lift off immediately after. Learn more about our greater flexibility!
The Federal Aviation Administration weather restrictions apply to private flights just like they do to commercial airlines. We all consider your safety and our crew’s safety paramount. While commercial flights get delayed or cancelled because of bad weather, though, private flights simply adapt. The difference? Our flexibility. Find out how below.
Several factors, such as schedules and flight connections, mean commercial airlines must observe strict departure and arrival times. Private flights, however, can change their departures. Mean storm? No problem. We take off before bad weather hits, or leave immediately after. We alter, not cancel.
The same goes for mid-flight. Private flights just change course if bad weather exists at your destination. We can land at a nearby airport with more favorable conditions. Commercial airlines must land at their predetermined airports.
Commercial aircraft pack to the gills. After all, maximum passengers and cargo per trip equals maximum profit per trip. But this business model causes a problem. Extra weight puts added stress on the aircraft. This makes takeoffs and landings more difficult on passenger airline engines in extreme temperatures.
Private aircraft carry a fraction of the passengers and the weight. This means your flight lifts off the tarmac on ice cold or oppressively hot days.
You cannot completely avoid flight delays or cancellations when Mother Nature acts up.
