Grande Aviation Offering New Air Charter Service for Knoxville

KNOXVILLE -- Grande Aviation is now offering a new air charter service for Knoxville businesses whose leaders are on a tight schedule.

Private travel on charter aircraft is rapidly becoming a more viable and accepted option to the conventional commercial airlines. Business travelers' needs have changed, making time more valuable than ever. Flexibility is essential. Safety is unquestionable.

Business charter enables passengers to choose their destination, select precise departure times, avoid long security lines, cramped cabin quarters and overcrowded terminals, while having only the people you want to fly with on board.

Mike Grande, owner of Grande Aviation, states "Of course air travel is always going to be easier and faster than having to drive, and because we are flying a smaller aircraft - a Cessna 421C – we can fly into airports that the commercial airlines cannot reach."

Grande's charter company focuses on destinations that are within 1.5 to 2 hours of flight time from Knoxville. "Several businesses have downsized and no longer have access to their corporate jet," Grande said. "However they have offices in different locations where they still need to attend meetings, sometimes at the last minute. Grande Aviation was designed for the business traveler who doesn't have time to waste at airports."

Chief Pilot and Director of Operations, Shaun Kruchek, who brings 14 years of experience as a pilot states, "Traveling 200 to 275 mph in an air conditioned, pressurized, twin piston engine airplane that seats up to 6 business associates is a great transportation value. As the demand for private travel on jet charters continues to rise, Grande Aviation is committed to tailor services to meet the exact needs of our clients."
