    I fly almost weekly, either on my plane or charter through a variety of different services.

    I just flew back from Vegas via Jet Suite today. Great company to do business with (so far) and easily the most cost effective Las Vegas connections from anywhere on the western side of the USA.

    brad, is there any room in the phenoms? they seem so.. tiny. are you travelling alone? it would seem crowded with the 4 cabin seats taken.

    It's not as bad as you would think. The plane is made for short flights anyways so four adults is no big deal.

    The seats hardly recline at all but other than that it is pretty capable of four + pilots.

    My grandfather and aunt use Pentastar Aviation when they go from Michigan to Florida for the season. I don't use it regularly but every once in a while.

    They will highly recommend Pentastar, they've had a great experience with them!

    What does it cost to fly private? Obviously that's a pretty generic question b/c I know the bigger the plane and the longer the trip cost more but ballpark me if you can
