Broker Comparison

Schubach Aviation Compared to Brokers

If you are in search of an aircraft charter company chances are you have encountered several private charter broker websites. Convoluted wording can make distinguishing between an operator and broker difficult. The major difference between an operator and a broker is that operators directly operate, manage and maintain a fleet of aircraft. Brokers act as an agent arranging charters with an operator on behalf of the customers. Private charter clients have direct access to any FAA certified operator, a broker is not necessary to book a private flight.
