Air Charters

Happy Customer

Tailwind performed a passenger charter from Monterey, CA to Addison, TX using a Citation Excel.  The charter passengers included two gentleman and five dogs, two of which were chocolate labs pictured here.  The passengers also had a significant amount of luggage and even some small furniture pieces that Tailwind’s staff were able to quickly offload.   Ground transportation to their destination was also provided.     The passengers all enjoyed a smooth ride at 41,000′ and made the flight in just over three hours.   Tailwind was able to secure a one-way flight, thereby saving the customer a significant amount of money over a round-trip charter.
