We have been in business since 1995.
The White Cloud Charter, LLC. operations and aircraft are located at the White Plains Airport (KHPN) in White Plains, New York. We are authorized by the FAA to conduct flight operations worldwide.
White Cloud Charter LLC specializes in Aircraft Charter and Aircraft Management.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) assigns unique-letter airport identification codes to each airport. These codes are used as specific identifiers and eliminate confusion in distinguishing airport locations in cities with the same name in different states or countries.
All airports in the contiguous U.S. start with the designator "K", Alaska and Hawaii begin with the letter "P". These codes are different from the IATA codes that airlines use to designate different airports.
Air charter service may be more cost-efficient than you think. Jet charter costs vary based on the size of the aircraft, your destination, and duration of stay. White Cloud's charter staff will be happy to consult with you to determine the best solution for your travel requirements. We will provide a quote for your travel, and we will gladly arrange any ancillary travel services or requests.
Pricing is based on an hourly rate for each aircraft. This is the most common pricing structure among charter operators. Additional costs may include fuel surcharges, landing fees and crew expenses for overnight travel. We can also offer "blocks" of hours. See "What is the VIP program?" in this section for more details.
