Sweet Aviation Charter Service

It’s About Time.

Intro Image

More time with your loved ones. More time to get things done. And less time on the road or in airports. Take the stress and hassle out of flying in a commercial aircraft and save hours of valuable time as a cost-effective alternative to driving. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, solo or with a group, flying charter puts time back on your side.

We are Fort Wayne’s only airplane charter service and we’re based at Smith Field Airport on the north side of the city, just minutes from the highway and downtown.

Convenience

We get it — this is the number one reason you fly charter, right? In addition to the time and money saved, the amenities that make flying with us a premium, unique experience are countless! Our modern, ultra-premium Cirrus SR22T is an ideal aircraft for regional trips with smaller groups. Plus, because we’re based at Smith Field Airport in north Fort Wayne, it’s extremely easy to get to the airport, park, and board your aircraft without the hassle of large airport parking, long security lines, or frustrating delays.

Our Cirrus SR22T seats up to four passengers (3 adults or 2 adults + 2 children) plus the pilot, with room for ample luggage, so you and your family or business partners can turn a 3-hour drive into a 1-hour flight! It’s easier to get in and out of than other aircraft in its class and when you have a short, 300-600 mile trip, the cost will be significantly lower and similar in travel time compared to using a turboprop or jet aircraft.

When it comes to charter travel, one size doesn’t fit all, but we have the right size for most and the perfect size for many! Stop by Smith Field Airport to learn more about the luxurious Cirrus SR22T!


Safety

While convenience may be your reason, safety is likely your number one concern. A major reason we love Cirrus so much is their unparalleled level of safety and innovation. Our Cirrus SR22T has the most modern technology, systems, and avionics available. In addition, all Cirrus aircraft come with a built-in parachute that can lower the entire airplane and all of its occupants to safety in case of emergency. And while we hope to never have to use it, it gives pilots and passengers added peace-of-mind. 

It’s easy to see why Cirrus has one of the best safety records in the industry!
