Air Transportation

UVA Airplane

A Cessna Citation XLS+ jet, capable of seating up to eight people, is available for use by University departments. Using the jet can provide time-savings and flexibility that commercial flights cannot, especially if you have more than one destination or if you have more than three or four people traveling. To obtain flight time estimates or to make reservations, please contact Flight Services at 434-531-4727

Scheduling

The flight services department works closely with the clients to schedule itineraries that meet a client's needs. Factors such as weather, airport services, condition of the airplane, crew requirements, and flight operational hours can impact a client's desired itinerary. Flight decisions are made by the Pilot in Command. Safety is the first consideration.

In planning for a successful itinerary, consider the following guidelines:

  • Contact the flight services department to plan an itinerary as early as possible in the process.
  • Anticipate that the President's Office takes priority in scheduling flights.
  • Build in flexibility and contingency plans for unexpected issues that may be encountered while on trips. Clients are responsible for additional charges for flight hours and pilot expenses (meals, hotels, etc.) due to unanticipated changes to itinerary. For example, a weather condition at the destination airport may create delays or may require diversion to other airports.
  • Flight operating hours are generally 6AM-Midnight. Clients requesting itineraries outside these hours or requesting itineraries that have extensive hours of wait time between legs may require the client and the flight services department to work together to adjust itineraries to align with safe operating procedures.
