Plans change but commitment doesn’t. In the midst of a tumultuous year, we are grateful to be together, and for being in a business that provides the safest way to travel in the midst of a pandemic. We’re also thankful for the recent downsized, socially-distanced wedding of our Director of Sales and Marketing, Christina Riley, to Brett Kline. We’re all here for each other and for you. Call us if you need us and we’ll see you in the skies!

Fly Now and Get a Tax Break!…
The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) is now suspending Federal Excise Tax for Part 135 jet charter operators. That means a big savings for our customers who fly with RAI Jets, now through January 1, 2021. Click button and request a quote today!
Like most small businesses, the pandemic hit us like a brick. For a time, business slowed as Americans regained their balance and adopted a “new normal.” Meanwhile, we developed our survival plan, with the help of CARES small business funding and our commitment to keep our people, pilots, and passengers as safe as possible.
We made face masks available for the customer and our pilots and practiced social distancing during our boarding, travel, and deplaning procedures.
We made the investment in MicroShield 360,® the first ever EPA and FDA-approved antimicrobial coating for all interior surfaces to our jets which proactively destroys bacteria and germs as well as their ability to adhere to interior surfaces and grow. One application works 24/7/365 and is guaranteed for one year.
We continued to serve our established customers, and on several occasions, we airlifted senior citizens from Florida who were too compromised to fly commercially.
Finally, we were happy to help many people who had always wanted to travel by private jet take their first flight.
We know it will be some time before the world is back in full swing, but as efficiency and safety become an extra concern in the business world, we hope more companies will consider jet charter for the efficiency and safety it provides now during the pandemic. In the meantime, we remain open and available to anyone who wants to fly the safest, healthiest way –by jet charter!
