More freedom

When you fly commercial, the pilot says you’re free to move about the cabin. When you fly private, you’re free to move about the world. And you can do it without hassles, without limitations, and without the inconveniences that so often make the journey of flight more arduous than it needs to be and, at this moment, more precarious than you’d prefer. The world is waiting for you, and we’re ready to help you and your loved ones take flight .

More flexibility

So often we’re told it’s not about the journey, it’s about the destination. But with private aviation, it’s about both. With unparalleled flexibility, you can finally travel on your terms, which has become all the more important in the current environment. So say goodbye to lines, luggage hassles, layovers—and the crowds that come with them. And instead go straight to your plane and depart not just on schedule, but on your schedule. And with access to thousands of additional airports, you can leave from one closer to home and land near your final destination.

More ease

Remember when flying was something you actually looked forward to? When you could arrive within minutes of departure, sit in a comfortable seat with ample leg room, and collect your bags quickly upon landing? With private aviation, it’s still possible. In fact, it’s part of our pledge to you. Tailored to your needs and designed with your comfort in mind, you’ll finally be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.


One that promises to provide more freedom, more flexibility, and more peace of mind. An era of flight that’s about making sure your personal space is protected and that your adventures are constrained only by your imagination.

What are the benefits of aircraft ownership?

Privacy, productivity, comfort, luxury, and convenience are some of the major differences between flying private and flying commercial. When you own an aircraft, the only schedule that matters is yours, and aircraft owners have come to appreciate the freedom, flexibility, and peace of mind they provide. 

Who can help me manage my aircraft?

At Textron Aviation, you can simplify your ownership experience so taking to the skies is more convenient than ever. Our PROOWNERSHIP aircraft management portfolio features services that encompass trip planning, maintenance oversight, personal pilots, and so much more. Best of all, these services are tailored to your unique operational needs. By letting Textron Aviation take care of the details, you can focus on the best parts of aircraft ownership.​

What is the difference between charter and ownership?

There are a variety of arrangements when it comes to private aviation, with charter and ownership among the most popular.

When you charter an aircraft, you essentially rent the aircraft for a specified amount of time. While you retain many of the benefits of private aviation, you do have less control over the operation and availability of the aircraft. However, it doesn’t involve upfront capital, fixed costs, or an ongoing commitment.

When you purchase an aircraft, you are in control, have a fully customized experience, and a lower lifecycle cost if the aircraft is used often.

There are many factors to consider when determining which option is right for you and we would be happy to help you work through the process.

Can I customize my own aircraft?

Absolutely. All of our aircraft interiors reflect customer feedback, but there are additional opportunities for customization and exclusive resources available to help you make your aircraft your own. From custom carpets to specially engineered seats and handcrafted cabinetry, our interior designers and craftsmen work side by side with you to achieve your unique style. We understand that details matter, so if you bring your inspiration to us, we’ll bring it to life.
