What is "Payload"?

- Payload refers to the weight allowance you have available. This includes baggage and each individual persons weight. payload is usually more limiting than seat numbers. (i.e. you may have 7 seats available and 550kg payload. If your passengers weight 90kg each with 10kg baggage, you will only be able to take 5 people.) 

What is "Seats"?

- In email quotes, the "seats" number is how many passenger seats are available. We do not include the pilot seat in this figure.  

What is "Single engine / Twin engine"?

- A lot of people have a preference on the type of aircraft they fly. To allow you to make a choice that best suits you (if you have a particular aircraft requirement) we indicate how many engines the aircraft is powered by. "Single engine" indicates that the aircraft is powered by one engine. "Twin engine" indicates that the aircraft is powered by two engines. Usually Single engine aircraft are more economical, while Twin engine aircraft are faster. We beleive both types of aircraft are as safe as each other as every critically important system on our aircraft is doubled for redundancy.

What sort of luggage can I bring?
