Safety in the air is something that a wide variety of passengers list as their primary concern about flying. Since there have been so many safety and security issues over the past 2 decades it is not unwarranted for passengers to feel a bit uneasy when it comes to safety in the air travel industry. After all, time and time again all the safety restrictions have been little comfort or protection.
It is important to realize that whether you are flying on private charter flight or on a commercial airline flight that both are covered under the same laws and restrictions and those are the ones set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA covers not only restrictions regarding pilots and flight hours but covers a variety of safety issues including those of safety, operations standards, and air craft maintenance.
Just as with the major public airports, airport security has been increased at private airports as well and even private charter passengers must present two forms of identification in order to fly. Private charter pilots have the right to inspect and search any piece of luggage of their choosing as well as to check and see what any passenger is carrying on board with them. Private charter companies meet and surpass any and all guidelines that are presented by the FAA.
Consumers who choose to fly on a private charter flight as opposed to a commercial airline flight will most likely not only feel as secure but likely more secure simply because they will know the individuals who are onboard the plane with them in most instances. This takes out the fear that someone onboard is going to do something dangerous or irrational when in the air. When you know everyone who is on board and are dealing with a reputable company that you can trust, you know that you will be fine and you can just kick back and enjoy your flight. It puts your mind at ease.
Honestly, other passengers are actually the biggest security threat when you travel and it is believed that the combination of drinking, medicating heavily, and the pressure changes and cabin fever that can occur can be a deadly and scary combination. All other factors being equal, the private charter companies have less to deal with very simply because they manage smaller flights with less passengers making everything in this industry move along very smoothly.
