I’ve done my research but can’t find an answer. Any advice on the below would be greatly appreciated, especially if you can provide company names and websites.
I’d like to fly my girlfriend up to her mom’s place near Clear Lake, CA. The results of my research for aircraft charters from the Bay Area airports near me (HWD, [flightaware.com/live/airport/KLVK]LVK, and [flightaware.com/live/airport/KCCR]CCR yielded aircraft no smaller than King Airs. These are slightly out of my price range by a few hundred dollars.
What I’m looking for is a cost of approximately $200 to $300 roundtrip. The flight would be from one of the Bay Area airports mentioned above to Lamson Field, Lakeport. a roundtrip distance of about 200 miles.
My guess is that a small twin (e.g. Seneca or Duchess) or a larger single (Lance, Cessna 206) would be in this price range.
An alternative would be to share expenses in a private aircraft. I have tried Pilot Share the Ride but haven’t had any luck. If there’s a private pilot in this area that would like to share expenses on a flight from here to there please send me a private message.
