Why do some private jet charter flights hug the coast?

The Federal Aviation Administration has specific rules governing flights that extend more than 50 nautical miles from the coast. If your aircraft isn’t compliant, you may end up with a longer routing

You could be losing $6,000 or more and an hour of your time on every trip

As I was researching my recent story on everything you need to know about FAR Part 135 private jet charter operations, Andrew Flaxman was one of several people who helped me out.

During our conversation, he brought up something that hadn’t occurred to me, hopefully, you already know about, but if you don’t, I think you will find of interest.

It could be costing you time and money every flight you make where the most direct routing would take you more than 50 nautical miles beyond the coastline.
