Summit Aviation is committed to delivering unmatched, private charter flight experiences with our modern aircraft, experienced crews and knowledgeable schedulers. Our charter fleet of immaculately maintained aircraft consists of Embraer Phenom 300 aircraft, including brand-new Phenom 300E models, as well as the Hawker 850XP. Combining our local charter fleet with access to charter aircraft worldwide, we ensure every facet of your trip is executed flawlessly with comfort, safety and style. If your travels require an aircraft outside our charter fleet, we will work with our aviation partners to locate the perfect aircraft for each occasion, from turbo-props to heavy jets.
Our team of aviation professionals are 100% committed to exceeding your expectations.
At Summit Aviation, we take time to understand your specific charter needs and find the perfect solution for both business and leisure travel.
From ground transportation and catering, to special requests, we thrive on ensuring you are fully satisfied with your private charter experience.
Eliminate security lines, lost luggage, worries and delays, and let us provide a new standard of air travel that puts you in control. Your schedule is our schedule.
Summit Aviation delights in offering supplemental lift options for aircraft owners or operators seeking travel solutions for aircraft scheduling conflicts or maintenance events.
Don’t let the availability of your aircraft interfere with the comfort, convenience or efficiency of your travel needs!
We work with individuals and businesses nationwide providing our aviation charter services when needed to ensure all travel needs are met without disruption.
Our safety standards far exceed the certification requirements of the FAA.
Summit Aviation is part of an elite group of aviation companies in the United States that have met the rigorous standards required to become an ARGUS Platinum Certified and Wyvern approved operator. In the international arena we have been certified through the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), Stage 2.
Summit is also a proud member of Air Charter Safety Foundation. These ratings require regular audits by independent third parties and are among the highest safety ratings from the most respected safety companies in the industry.
Our impeccable safety record isn’t just something we’re proud of; it’s also a priceless piece of mind that every customer takes with them on each flight.
