Some kind words to a member of our Charter Sales Team:
The First Wednesday Poker Club of Coronado and I want to thank you again for your assistance in setting up our flight to Salt Lake City. You were very professional, compassionate and an absolute credit to your organization. Please let anyone know that I would attest to your superior customer service (including a very early morning call to let me know the plane was on its way). Thank you again for finding us an aircraft that was able to carry us all on such short notice. We all really appreciated it.

I have recently received some inquiries from customers asking what separates Schubach from our competition. Having worked for other jet charter companies, I can say firsthand that there is a lot more to flying private than just getting from here to there. Here are five points to consider before booking your next flight:
Experience: No one has been operating out of Carlsbad longer. We have intimate knowledge of what it takes to run a safe operation out of Carlsbad Airport (CRQ), which we call home. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year we are proud to say we have maintained a flawless safety record throughout.
Familiarity: When you fly with Schubach you see the same aircraft and flight crews. This sounds like a given but in todayâ€™s aviation world many companies try to seem far larger than they are in reality. To fulfill this image, these companies broker aircraft leaving their clients with unfamiliar aircraft and crews that they will most likely never see again. As a large operator we manage our own aircraft allowing our customers to enjoy seeing the same crew and aircraft time after time. They are able to build a level of trust and confidence that wouldnâ€™t otherwise be possible.
True Flexibility: We mean it when we say that we have the most liberal cancellation policy in the industry. Industry standard is anywhere from 24-48 hours with a 50-100% cost of charter penalty. We like to think more long-term with our customers and understand that plans change, which is why we donâ€™t charge for cancellations for retail trips on our aircraft out of CRQ. Ask any other charter company about their cancellation policies and I know you will not be given the same liberties.
Service, Service, Service: We recognize that we are in business thanks to our loyal customers. Next to safety, genuine customer service is our top priority. We will take the time to understand what you value most when traveling and use our vast resources to ensure seamless flights down to the smallest detail. Nothing gives us greater pride than when our clients express how much the extra details mean to them and their families.
Community Outreach: Henry Schubach has always made it a point to give back to the San Diego community that has supported us for so long. We are involved with several charities and just last year donated 1 cent per mile flown to Helen Woodward Animal Shelter, an amount that added up to over $10,000.
If you currently fly with us you can rest assured that you have made the right choice. If you are considering flying with us I hope you give us the chance to show you the Schubach difference. I am confident that our values will match yours.
I was lucky enough to Â take a year long sabbatical from work in 2010 (thanks Henry) to travel around South America and Western Europe. I am frequently asked, of all our travels what was our favorite place. While itâ€™s hard to name just one somewhere that definitely made a lasting impression was the Cote Dâ€™Azur, or South of France. This is also a popular travel destination with many of our charter clients and itâ€™s not hard to imagine why.
The Cote Dâ€™Azur airport is based right on the coastline in Nice and is in perfect proximity to all the best areas. While Nice is a large typical French city on the water, and Cannes, a smaller, more upscale version, the true gem lies on the coastal stretch between Nice and Monaco. The terrain in this area is far too rugged to build up with sky-high condominiums, the result being a string of small, quaint villages that havenâ€™t changed much since the glamour of the 1920â€™s.Â The most exclusive of these villages is Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, a peninsula covered with amazing homes and private beaches with world-class yachts.
The best time of the year to visit is June or September, when the crowds are minimal, the days are long and the crystal blue Mediterranean water temperature is perfect. The location is close enough to the infamous wine country of Provence and the Italian Riviera to make for some pretty amazing haute cuisine. For stunning views drive the coastal middle corniche (Princess Grace Highway) to EZE. A small, medieval village seemingly hanging from the cliffs. There are some fantastic hotels and private villas for accommodation.
Our Gulfstream IV or Challenger 601 can travel from San Diego to the Nice Airport in about 11-12 hours with just one stop. If you are interested in learning more please email me for pricing and availability at Kimberly@schubachaviaton.com

Schubach Aviation, San Diegoâ€™s premier on-demand air charter service, is offering a carbon-neutral travel program, giving environmentally conscious passengers the option to fly in an aircraft that supports clean energy. The program balances the impact of energy use by supporting an equivalent amount of wind energy production through the purchase of Green-e CertifiedÂ® Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). In other words, for every gallon of fuel used by this airplane, the airplanes owner purchases equivalent amounts of RECs.
Passengers who select this factory new Citation CJ3 for their air travel will be participating in the program, which offsets the carbon emissions produced during its flights, ensuring zero-emission wind energy is delivered to the countryâ€™s energy mix. The Green-e CertifiedÂ® RECs are purchased through a renewable energy service provider.
Fortunately, Schubach Aviationâ€™s travelers will not have to forfeit luxury for a greener environment. The CJ3 holds up to seven passengers, and offers a spacious cabin, private lavatory and a fully stocked refreshment center. This is the second year in a row that the jetâ€™s owner has decided to participate in the program.
With the recent opening of US Customs at the Carlsbad Palomar Airport, Schubach Aviation has been granted overflight permits by the US Customs and Border Protection for itâ€™s fleet of aircraft. Schubachâ€™s valued customers can now enjoy the convenience of flying directly into Palomar Airport to clear customs as they return from international trips. Previously an additional customs stop was required before proceeding to Carlsbad.
Schubach has also been granted overflight permission for San Diego International, Palm Springs International, Long Beach and LAX.
