In the Philippines, you can opt to charter aircraft of almost any type. You have to make a booking in advance and pay either an hourly rate or do a package deal if you wish to use the plane longer. Mind you, it is indeed expensive. It is the comfort and time saving aspect of travel you pay for rather than going by airlines. If you want to travel in luxury and style and you have a deep pocket, you can choose from a Dassault Falcon, Cessna Citation bizjet, Learjet, a Bombardier, or even perhaps a Gulfstream. These are top of the line aircraft for regional travel. Say Manila to Hongkong or Singapore.

For domestic travel you can take the ever popular Beechcraft King Air turboprops.

For businessmen in a hurry, there are several helicopters available for charter. You have the Eurocopter Ecureuil and Dauphin, the Bell, Agusta or McDonnell-Hughes 500 helicopters.


A favorite for sightseeing is the economical Robinson choppers. I remember a young couple chartering a Robinson for sightseeing tour of Taal and Tagaytay mountain resort. While on flight, the guy proposed marriage to his girlfriend. Will you marry me? Wow! His love must be as endless as the sky! What a novel and expensive way to express your love for your beloved! It pays to be unique sometimes!
