Shortstop Jet Charter

Shortstop Jet Charter is an air charter aviation management company based at Essendon Airport in Melbourne. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, Shortstop Jet Charter has grown from operating/managing light aircraft to operating/managing super mid-size corporate jets. Our current fleet has the capacity to operate both domestically and internationally.

Whilst we believe customer service and satisfaction is extremely important, we believe safety is paramount. Shortstop Jet Charter prides itself on having a very strong and ever evolving positive safety culture among the management and air crew. This ensures the safest possible flight, matched with unbridled customer service for our clients.

Shortstop Jet Charter also operates an array of warbirds ranging from a WWII trainer to the beloved corporate DC-3. Adventure flights are available in our Harvard. Our DC-3 is an ideal aircraft for corporate group charter; with the option of using our hangar as an excellent venue for product launches, corporate events and business/private parties. This space accommodates a large internal area with the availability of our magnificent aircraft as backdrops.

Shortstop Jet Charter welcomes you to contact us with any of your aviation requirements.
