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 intercontinental 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.

When deciding whether or not to hire a private jet for business travel, it is very easy to only focus on the luxury that private jets afford.  A benefit that often gets overlooked is just how efficient corporate air charter is.

From the moment you arrive at the airport, everything is seamless as you step straight out of your car and enter our VIP lounge, from where you will board your awaiting private jet in a matter of minutes, not hours. No delays waiting for security scans, no long check-in lines and no time spent waiting for other passengers to board. As soon as you're ready, the flight will depart. Whilst in the air you will be able to conduct business without disruption, or use the time to rest and rejuvinate before your arrival. Once at your destination, you will disembark from the aircraft and step straight into a chauffeured vehicle which has been arranged by our staff to be ready for your arrival.
