Depending on how far you are looking to travel, you will need to charter a jet which suits your specifications. For short trips of around 1500 miles, you should look at small cabin/light jets. These typically hold up to 7 people with luggage allocations. If you are looking to charter a private jet from Pittsburgh to Fort Lauderdale, or jet from Pittsburgh to Chicago, then a light jet may be your best option. Some of the Light jets available for Pittsburgh charter are the Hawker 400XP, Citation CJ3, and Citation Ultra.
For longer flights, a midsize cabin is required. These jets in Pittsburgh are more comfortable than a small jet and can fly between many U.S states nonstop, with a passenger capacity of 8. Midsizes, like the Hawker 800XP, Citation Excel, or Learjet 60, are great for a fair distance and comfortable on jet charters that are 2 hours or more – such as, Pittsburgh to Denver or Houston to Pittsburgh.
For longer domestic trips or intercontinental air charter, such as Pittsburgh to Los Angeles, or even Seattle to Pittsburgh. we suggest super midsize jet, such as the Challenger 300 or Hawker 1000. These are designed for longer domestic flights and even light transatlantic travel, with a typical passenger capacity of 9 people.
Lastly, if you are looking to a private jet charter from Pittsburgh to Shanghai, or other International destinations, then a Heavy cabin jet or Ultra Long Range is required. These heavy cabin and ultra-long range jets are the pinnacle of luxury in private travel. With a passenger capacity of 16, these heavy jets can get you from one place to another in style, perfect for transoceanic travel.
If you are a traveling in a large group for business, then it is advised that you look towards the large cabin or heavy cabin jets. Some examples of Heavy and Ultra Long Range charter jets are the Falcon 2000, Gulfstream G550, Falcon 7x, and Challenger 604/605.

The History of Pittsburgh
The first European settlers established a community in Pittsburgh back in 1758. The town was named after British statesman William Pitt, and it soon became a thriving hub of industry thanks to the abundance of coal and the strategic positioning on the banks of its three rivers. Steel production boomed in the city during the industrial revolution, and it quickly became known as ‘The City that Built America’.
Top Hotels In Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh’s weather is typical of the northeast coast of the USA; the winters are cold and it’s not unusual to see icy conditions and snowfall during the months of December, January and February. In contrast, the summers are hot and often humid, with temperatures averaging at around 80 degrees during the warmest months.
‘The Steel City’
Pittsburgh is not a city often associated with mass tourism, but in recent years, there’s been a huge spike in the number of visitors arriving to explore the Steel City.
Its impressive skyline is filled with art deco skyscrapers and industrial architecture which represents the Gilded Age; a period in America’s history that saw a huge transformation in technology, economy, and industry.
The city is home to some highly esteemed museums, including the world-famous Carnegie Museum of Natural History, with its incredible 1.5 million artifacts and the Carnegie Museum of Art with its impressive collection of contemporary works.
Pittsburgh has around 90 different neighborhoods, each with its own unique vibe and interesting sights to explore. There’s an abundance of fine dining opportunities, a vibrant and eclectic nightlife and a surprisingly thriving live music scene here.
The city also has some stunning hotels and lodging options like the award-winning Omni William Penn hotel in the heart of downtown, and The Priory; a beautifully restored historic boutique hotel in Pittsburgh’s vibrant North Shore.

Take in the Views on the Duquesne Incline
Ride the steep slope up Mount Washington on these two original cable cars which were first opened to the public in 1877. It’s a great way to take in the spectacular views of the Pittsburgh skyline, especially after sundown when the city lights up. It’s worth stopping at the top to visit the viewing platform for some great photo opportunities.
Visit the Andy Warhol Museum
Warhol is one of Pittsburgh’s most famous natives, and this six-story museum on the North Shore celebrates his incredible legacy. The exhibits include much of the artist’s earliest commercial illustrations and drawings, which are permanently housed here. Visitors can take a self-guided audio tour and pop into the regular open talks and daily film screenings in the main gallery.
Dine at Altius
The aptly named Altius Restaurant sits high up on Mount Washington and gives diners mind-blowing views of the city’s skyline. Top chef Jessica Bauer serves up award-winning contemporary American cuisine alongside craft cocktails and an extensive wine menu. This is easily one of the most exclusive and upscale restaurants in the city and is well worth the high price tag.
