THE MERLIN1 STANDARD

WE SET THE BAR AT 41,000 FEET

In the world of private aviation, MERLIN1 does things differently. Unlike most charter operators, we own or control our entire fleet via long-term lease. Our service area includes all of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean, but our client and home bases are located in Central and South Texas.

We operate one type of aircraft the versatile and comfortable (8-passenger, stand-up headroom, 2,000NM range) mid-size Citation 650. In-house airframe maintenance and heavy checks ensure streamlined operations and lower costs, which are reflected in our pricing.

We proudly work to exceed your expectations every step of the way by understanding your expectations, and acting on our spirit of hospitality to provide luxurious, relaxing, and safe in-flight experiences.

  • 17 years of operational excellence
  • 50,000 flight hours without incident or accident
  • Dispatch reliability over 99%
  • Client retention rate over 90%

We partner with FBOs that offer VIP treatment to our clients – no lines, no hassle with security checks. Simply arrive plane-side, hop on board, and fly.

Plus, we can arrange ground transportation to get you where you need to be before and after your flight.

TESTIMONIALS

A Few Words from our Happy Clients

When you consider the value proposition, professionalism, and highly trained pilots, MERLIN1 can’t be beat.

Alan S.

Since joining the program, I have spent considerably less time in airports, I arrive relaxed and energetic to my meetings, and am able to return to my office in time to finish up for the day. The planes are great, pilots are wonderful, as is MERLIN1’s concierge team. Flying the Learjet and Citation III has been such an enjoyable experience that each time I board, I want to just keep flying and never land.

Dore K.

With any aircraft in the MERLIN1 fleet I can get from San Antonio to New York or Seattle nonstop, in either direction any time of year with four to eight passengers.

Tommy B.

The speed and efficiency of Learjets and Citation IIIs are unsurpassed. I can now efficiently accomplish in a day what previously took two or three. I’ve looked at many private jet programs and finally, someone has figured out how to make private jet travel affordable while maintaining the standards we have come to expect.

We utilize Merlin 1 a few times a year and we have never been disappointed. From one way across the country to round trip over a few days. I recommend them highly!

Flew to Cabo on a Citation. It was an amazing experience. The plane was stocked with everything I could imagine: alcohol, water, snacks, pillows, blankets, etc. The pilots were friendly and experienced.
