If you are like me and have spent an unhealthy amount of time playing GTA Vice City and experiencing the neon lights of 80s Miami, there is a good chance that you want to perform that cultural pilgrimage to Miami at least once in your life. If you really want to embody the spirit of Tommy Vercetti, then you have to arrive there in style. When it comes to arriving in style, there is no better way than to arrive through private jet charter. Chartering a jet to Miami can be even more fun due to the fact that not only are there a plethora of private jet charter companies that handle this route very often, but also the fact that you will be entitled to a separate airport and treated like a true king.
Miami is considered by many to be the supreme cultural hub of America. While thinking of America, one might be first inclined to imagine the metropolitan vibe of New York or LA’s Hollywood excesses. However, when it comes to the sheer cultural force of Miami, there really is no equal. First of all, we will be exploring the many reasons why you should be chartering a jet to Miami. A private jet charter NY to Miami is one of the most common requests that jet charter companies receive. Let’s first explore the reasons why you should be going to Miami in the first place.
The Best Night Life in the Country
The neon lit nights of Miami have legendary status in pop culture. It has been explored in video games like GTA Vice City, movies like Scarface and even TV shows like Miami Vice. A city that is often ranked number one in the world when it comes to the sheer number of top-class night clubs. The DJs are booked all week long. Even when other cities are working in boring meetings and putting out deadlines, Miami is in an eternal state of frenzy. You will be able to find people who share your music taste as well, from Hip Hop to 70s rock, you will have a massive choice of concerts to go to.
You are also quite likely to find celebrities in the higher-end parties that take place across all of town. The fun truly never lets up in this city. If you are on holiday, this is the best place to be in the entire world.
Beaches, and Beaches
One of the best things about Miami is its topography. You are always close to some sort of beach. The palm trees that you can see all across the city will always remind you that you have landed in Miami. The combination of the sub-tropical climate with the gentle sunshine is lethal. It never gets too hot and never gets too cold. If you are a fan of sunshine, you will get plenty of that here. If you are on the other side of that spectrum and don’t mind a bit of rain in the mix, you will never be disappointed. The sun peaking its way out of the clouds after the rain while you lay on the beach reminds you of memories you never had. It exposes the innocence of nature even in a place like Miami, where all ‘vices’ are available in abundance.
Shop Your Heart Out
When you’re on holiday, buying your wife a couple nice dresses as a gesture of love will have even more potency. Since Miami has all the outlets of luxury brands that you could possibly think of, you will never be short of options. Gucci, Prada, Balenciaga, these brands and so many others have an irreplaceable home in Miami. The number of malls in Miami are simply staggering as well. There’s an entire list of malls on Wikipedia which you have access to. If you are looking to go a little easy on the wallet, there are plenty of budget options as well. Since its one of the biggest markets in the entirety of the US, you will be able to get a pretty good price for everything that you buy here.
Bachelors and Bachelorettes
Every year, when wedding seasons rolls around, there are numerous bachelors and bachelorettes who wander the streets of Miami for one last hurrah before marriage. Many people tend to go to Las Vegas as well, but I would strongly recommend Miami. The level of hedonism that you would be looking for just before being tied down can only be offered by Miami. The super-clubs on the South Beach are basically equipped for this exact purpose.
Once the sun goes down, all the rules that we have been slaves to for so long also start to fade. The lines begin to blur, and everything is allowed as long as it serves the ultimate goal of sheer pleasure. These are the nights where you can truly let go. Don’t worry about anything else, there will be plenty of time to socialize with other couples when the baby comes round.
Due to Miami’s proximity to Cuba, there is a very strong influence of Cuban culture on Miami, giving you a cross-cultural experience that is only available here. There’s even Little Havana where you can experience the true breadth of genuine Cuban culture. Cuban cuisine can only be described as a level above artistic, with the perfect orgy of taste happening right there in your mouth. Since you are in Miami, there is a good chance that there will be a real orgy happening near you as well.
Smoking a genuine cigar with your feet put up in Little Havana can really show you how colorful life can be. Cuban influence can be found in every street of this beautiful city.
Private jet charter NY to Miami
Since this is one of the most common requests that we receive, let’s explore this particular proposition for a second.
The cost of private jet charter NY to Miami is completely dependent on the kind of jet that you are using. The distance between New York to Miami is about 1100 miles. A private jet charter flight that you will take about 3 hours. The cheapest option that can still be considered as an aircraft is the usage of a turboprop. However, the ride of a turboprop will be much more uncomfortable and will take much longer than a jet will. There will also be quite a difference when it comes to the breadth of features that will be available to you.
Using a light jet is the most cost-effective option that still keeps up all levels of luxury that you expect from a private jet. Estimated costs can be anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000 depending on the type of private jet that you need. At first, this number might seem quite a bit expensive when compared to a first-class flight. In order to really put in perspective how ‘cheap’ a light jet can be, lets take the example of a Phenom 300. This particular jet costs about $3500 per hour. However, the real doozy is the fact that you can fit 11 people in one of these jets. This means that the per hour cost of this jet divided amongst 11 passengers is less than $350. In my opinion, this is a pretty good deal.
The Phenom 300 is often considered to be one of the most capable jets in the light jet class. It is one of the biggest jets that can still be piloted by a single pilot, making it a feat of engineering simply like no other.
A midsize really makes incremental improvements on a light jet. The increase in passenger capacity is not as notable as the upgrade that you experience in terms of luxury. The height of the cabin is much improved as well so people who will feel quite uncomfortable in the relatively compromised cabin of a light jet will be much more comfortable here. The generally larger size of the aircraft means that it is much more stable in the air. This translates to a much more insulated feeling while sitting inside the jet. For people who are quite sensitive when it comes to being nauseous inside an aircraft, a mid-size jet is a very sensible choice.
This will naturally come at a decent bump in cost as well. You can expect to pay anything from $13,000 to $18,000 for a private jet charter from NY to Miami.
If you are familiar with cars, there are often long wheelbase of cars which are decently bigger than their standard models but still are based on the same basic formula. This is the same case with midsize and super-midsize jets. Essentially, everything you get in a midsize jet, you get more of it in a super-midsize jet. You get a decent increase in capacity as well as a decent increase in the cabin size as well. You can expect more options such as a separate area for the crew and greater cabin amenities as well. The price for a private jet charter from NY to Miami is going to be around $15,000 to $22,000.
Empty Leg Flights Between New York and Miami
If you are a bit flexible on your schedule, you can hunt for a great bargain when going between these two cities. Since there are a lot of flights that happen between these two cities, the chance of catching an empty leg flight is also quite good. An empty leg flight is a flight that a jet has to make. For example, if a jet has to return to its home base in NY from Miami, it has to make a flight regardless of whether it has passengers or not. So, private jet charter companies offer these empty leg flights at a much-discounted rate. Although, you have to be careful about the fact that you will not be able to get the exact flight time that you want. In exchange for your compromise on the schedule, you get to fly at a much more discounted rate.
If you are looking for an even bigger discounted rate, you can also split the cost of chartering a jet with another party as well. If you are the type who likes to socialize with other people, this a great way for you make new friends. Personally, I would even prefer this option to spend a good time with a few fine people as well. However, for people who want to be left alone in their jet, you will have to charter a jet entirely on your own which will obviously come at a much higher cost as well.
Chartering a jet from NY to Miami is going to be certainly an experience that you will cherish. After all, we only have one life and being able to spend it in the places that truly have ‘soul’ is what will truly nourish your own soul.
