About Spring Training

Players travel to Arizona and Florida every year to contend for a roster spot in the upcoming Major League Baseball (MLB) season.

FAQs About Flying Private to Spring Training

Explore the following frequently asked questions regarding private flights to spring training:

How Far in Advance Should I Plan?

When you charter a private plane, it is best to tackle the planning as early as you can. However, GrandView Aviation makes it possible to book your flight in as little as 24 hours before departure. 

You can often save money by booking earlier, and you'll have more time to prepare for your spring training adventures. The extra time can also come in handy when determining your flight accommodations. 

What Amenities Are Available on Private Flights?

The amenities on private flights are unparalleled. When you fly private with GrandView Aviation, you can enjoy the following:

  • Privacy: You can enjoy relaxing in a private atmosphere with your chosen guests. 
  • Wi-Fi access: We provide unlimited Wi-Fi free of charge. You can spend your flight getting work done or streaming one of your favorite shows. 
  • Space: Having legroom and space to recline is key to the most comfortable and relaxing flying experience.

How Many Guests Can Come on a Private Jet? 

As you plan your spring training adventure, you may want to bring along friends, business associates or family members. GrandView Aviation flights can accommodate as many as eight passengers. Bring along up to seven of your closest pals and enjoy America's favorite pastime together. 

May I Bring My Pet on a Private Flight?

One of the perks of flying with GrandView Aviation is bringing your pet along. Unlike many commercial flights that require you to put your pet in a cage and ship them as cargo, you can enjoy the flight with your furry friend comfortably by your side. 

We should note that you will likely be unable to bring your pet to one of the MLB ballparks unless they have proper service animal qualifications.

How Early Should I Arrive for a Private Flight?

When you fly commercial, you must arrive hours in advance to ensure you have plenty of time to go through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checks. By chartering a private jet, you can forgo the need to arrive early. Instead, you can get to the airport, park your car and board the flight in under an hour.
