Do you offer Single and Dual Turbo Prop Aircraft Options?
Unfortunately no we do not. The reason for this is because Aero Dynamic Jets holds safety as its #1 priority along with the ride and comfort of its clients inside the aircraft cabins as well as while flying. Turbo Prop aircraft (dual or single) such as the Pilatus PC-12 or King Air 350i do not have the deicing standards that we hold for all the private jet aircraft that we offer. They are not equipped with Hot Wing Deicing Technology which allows the ice to evaporate upon contact rather than using Deicing Boots which are rubber and require for the ice to stick and gather on the leading edges of the aircraft wings before inflating and breaking the ice off the leading edges. Also they are limited to the max altitude they can fly at which is 30,000 feet. This allows for the aircraft to be stuck flying in the majority of storm systems rather than above the storms which our jet options have the capability to fly at 41,000-51,000 feet with no issues. With turbo prop altitude limits, chances of substantial turbulence are greatly increased. With safety and comfort as our priorities, Aero Dynamic Jets has chosen not to utilize or operate any turbo prop aircraft.
Does Aero Dynamic Jets setup ground transportation at the destination?
Yes. Our Concierge and Operations Departments can arrange ground transportation or rental car for you that will be waiting for you Ramp Side when your aircraft arrives at your destination.

Are there any international fees when traveling to destinations outside the United States?
Trips that arrive at or depart to locations outside of the United States are subject to international fees instead of US Federal Excise Tax (FET). Because FET is already in the hourly cost, the dollar amount of FET will be applied toward any international fees that are being charged by the foreign government. In most cases, however, the amount being charged for FET in the hourly rate does not cover the international fees completely. The remaining balance of the international fees will be deducted from the client’s deposit.
