Pre-Flight Planning for a Low-Stress and Secure Strategy Each Time
Safety Is in the Details,
Success Is in the Perfect Plan
Planning international trips or domestic ones, knowing the aviation flight restrictions at your destination, and arranging travel documents are crucial for private jets, military flights, business aviation, and commercial airlines alike.
Flight planning is the backbone of any flight. With always changing circumstances, flight plan calculations must change per the flight’s needs.
A thorough arrangement is a must before taking off for domestic flights or international ones. Aircraft flight planners consider several details for travel plans (matching flight and aircraft specifications) for an accurate flight plan.
Weather and route are the main points in international flight planning. Flight planners work out these details in an excellent way to choose the safest and fastest route available. Aviation fuel is also a significant aspect of flight planning, and appropriate weather conditions can assist any aircraft in completing its journey with a minimal amount of fuel.
We offer a range of services, to mention a few: long-distance, multi-stop freight transport, domestic and international flights. Our experienced flight dispatchers assist any operation type including
An optimized route with the highest fuel efficiency and lowest operational costs
Depending on the current weather conditions, finding the best route may vary. These include the projections for high air winds and temperatures, the payload amounts, and the timeshares that day, including crew and airplane time.
Route optimization involves the dynamics of air traffic control (ATC) organizations, over-flight permit requirements, and company policies. The efficient flight plan includes models of all these to find the perfect route. These key factors help flight plan optimization while complying with all constraints of weather, wind, and cost.
Real-time weather reports and NOTAM briefing
You don’t have to worry about the complexity of any weather situation. The experts at Jet Business Solutions will advise you of any adverse conditions along your proposed route of flight.
We pre-tell you about natural phenomena such as thunderstorms, turbulence, mountain obscurations, and strong winds, then compare the situation with your aircraft’s capabilities and limitations.
Our weather reports and NOTAM briefing are comprehensive and up to date. Still, we are ready for any additional information you may require or for clarification of any point.
Airport slots and parking arrangements
These factors are equally important for many reasons: safety, security, convenience, and comfort. However, the airport slotting process requires advanced knowledge of the relevant laws, procedures, regulations, and policies. In general, airports impose limits based on the types of operations conducted by their tenants.
We know how to book an airport slot, especially for private jet flights, which need to arrive and depart within a limited timeframe. On the same note, our team possesses a deep understanding of rules, regulations, policies, and customs associated with private and corporate aviation. Our highly knowledgeable agents can arrange for permits and landing rights following the requirements imposed by local authorities.

What are the specific ATC considerations when planning a trip?
Certain regions require you to file flight plan hours in advance. For example, when filing out of North America to Russia, you need an airway slot reservation before filing a flight plan.
The restrictions vary from one country to another. Thus, it is best to have a 3rd-party provider who takes care of these details and spares you long delays.
What is the first step in flight planning?
Getting the latest charts, updating Flight Management System (FMS), and checking for new airway alignments. However, a third-party provider can check and monitor airway NOTAMS and adjust the flight plan per changes.
What are the most-known aviation restrictions for airways?
India, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia have only domestic flights airways. In China, only commercial airlines can use the airways. Japan has timed single-flight air routes.
When should you file a flight plan?
If you need to submit a flight plan, you must do so before leaving the airport. You may transmit one during the flight if there are no new changes.
What are the aspects that a trip planner takes care of?
- Correct fuel calculation, including having enough fuel in cases of new payloads, diversions, or emergencies.
- Having an optimized route.
- Access to weather forecasts and NOTAMs throughout the whole flight path.
- Knowing the appropriate diversions airports.
- Making sure of complying with safety rules.
- Ensuring overfly-landing permits.
- Having an Equal Time Point scenario (ETP).
- Providing slots for arrival, departure, or parking.
- Securing ground handling.
