Your safety is our highest priority at Sentinel Aviation, and when it comes to aviation safety, no expense should be spared. We sometimes have new clients who come back to us after we have quoted and say “but we’ve found a flight cheaper elsewhere”. Our response is always “Cheap does not mean Safe”. When you charter a private jet and you find something cheaper, ask yourself the question “why is it cheaper” “where is that company saving money”, “is it on Operations, is it on Crewing, is it on Training”.
When you come to Sentinel Aviation you come to us because we are a company founded, managed and staffed by former business jet pilots. You pay for our experience and your safety and your peace of mind. Invariably, those clients who have found cheaper flights elsewhere, always come back to us, because they know Sentinel Aviation can be trusted to look after them.
