Full refunds are made if written notice is received within 10 days prior to your scheduled flight or if the weather is unsuitable the day of the flight and you chose not reschedule.

Cancellations on the day of the flight or no-shows will not receive a refund and will be billed in full for the price of the charter. You have the option for a full refund if we cancel the flight for any reason.

The deposit is also transferable to another date with proper notification or in the event of unfavorable weather conditions the day of your flight. We reserve the right to fill any empty spaces unless your flight is a Private Charter.
