Who we are
what we stand for

We are a private air charter service focused on distinctive individuals and companies who fly private. We provide air charter on our own fleet of aircraft and we manage the aviation assets for our owners. That's what we are. Who we are is what makes us different.

Our people are talented, dedicated, experienced professionals who come together with a common cause; delivering a safe, efficient and professional customer experience that is second-to-none. We're passionate about aviation and personable people. We approach things from your perspective.

We know that developing lasting relationships is reliant upon putting your interests before ours. We understand the impact of our services. Travel is personal. Everyone is different. We are here to give you the flight solution you want, and advice you need. With us you will have it your way. And you can count on Privaira.

Privaira Mission and Vision

Attention to detail. A long-term approach to building relationships, not short-term fixes. Deliver excellence, not lip-service. At every juncture of service, an evaluation of results and an immediate response to opportunity. A belief in that we can; a confidence in that we will. More than a mission, a commitment to being way above second.

Building upon the fundamental values that have established our company as a safe and reliable air charter service, Privaira brings a new sensibility to private aviation. Our clients must know what to expect from us. Then we can strive to exceed expectations. A heightened awareness of what you want, not just what you need. From the basics to over-the-top pampering, it's up to you.

Just to be safe fly Privaira.

Air charter is a highly regulated industry. Safety is at the core of regulation. And while the regulators are important, it is the corporate responsibility of the operator to ensure your personal safety. At Privaira our commitment to safety is to be at the heart of our corporate culture. We do things by the book, and we do not compromise on safety or regulatory compliance. We're proud of our AR/GUS Platinum-rated record of safety and our IS-BAO Stage II certification. With a flawless safety and compliance track record for more than 13 years, feel confident in selecting Privaira. After all, we'd never go anywhere without you.

Safety

Incredible flying machines.

Flying has been a fascination of mankind since the beginning of recorded history. Although air travel has become commonplace, the spectacular accomplishment of take-off can still raise a few goose bumps. Even for us. At Privaira, our fleet is as diverse as your travel plans. From island-hopping turbo-props to long-range jets. The beautiful thing about flying private on Privaira is that you get to choose your aircraft, not just your seat.

Fleet

Orange you glad you picked Privaira?

So what's our fascination with orange? Orange is an evocative color that radiates warmth and happiness combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow. Oranges just happen to be the number one agricultural product in Florida and the state produces more oranges than anywhere else in the country. And we're based in Florida (but can fly anywhere).
