Private jets in Las Vegas are a picture of luxury. There are some myths, however, that quickly taint the visions of luxury surrounding how risky it is to fly on a private plane. As a private jet company, we have safely flown thousands of passengers to many different destinations, but people still wonder if private jets really are more dangerous than commercial airliners. Below are some of the most common myths surrounding the risks of private planes, and the actual truths of flying private.
Bad Weather Quickly Compromises Private Planes
Perhaps due to their smaller size, many believe that private planes simply can’t handle inclement weather as safely as commercial airliners. This is a myth, with the opposite actually being true. Due to their smaller size, private planes can fly higher than commercial planes, which means they can fly above the bad weather rather than through it. In addition to this, private planes can climb to their maximum height faster than commercial planes. This means that flying through that weather to get above it happens more quickly, too.
Private Planes Can’t Land as Quickly if Something Happens On-Board
The truth is commercial flights are landed every day due to medical emergencies, unruly passengers, and more. Many think this isn’t possible with private jets because they don’t have the same kind of access to airports, but this isn’t entirely true. Private planes actually have access to more airports so they can land whenever or wherever they need to. Commercial airliners are incredibly large, and as such, only a limited number of airports have the capacity needed for them to land and take off. Private jets don’t have this limitation so if something happens in the air, the plane can land at one of the many smaller airports along the way.
Private Planes Aren’t Regulated the Same Way
Getting into an airplane, whether it’s a commercial plane or a private jet, is a frightening experience for some. Sometimes the only comfort is knowing that airplanes are highly regulated and planes must follow FAA standards. Many believe private jets don’t have to follow these same regulations, but they, in fact, have to follow the same regulations as commercial airliners. When a charter operator is highly sophisticated, they often have to follow even stricter regulations than commercial airplanes, which is good news for anyone worried about the risks of flying on a private plane.
You Can Still Miss Your Flight
This myth doesn’t involve actual danger, but anyone that has ever missed a flight knows how disruptive it is. While potentially missing a flight is a reality when flying commercial, it doesn’t happen with private jets. Those boarding private planes don’t have to go through TSA’s security screenings, metal detectors, or even a gate. Passengers simply have to drive up to their plane, get ready to board, and take off in just a few minutes. For those that can’t take the risk of missing a flight, private planes from Las Vegas provide the answer.
