Charter To Sundance

The Station Agent, Whiplash, The House I Live In, How to Die in Oregon, Winter’s Bone and Precious all have something in common. They have all been screened and won an award at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.

The festival started in 1978 and was simply called the Utah/US film festival. It was born to give film makers in Utah somewhere to show their films and also to inspire American film makers to make and screen their movies. The festival is an annual affair that takes place in Park City Utah each January and today, it’s named Sundance after Robert Redford’s character in the classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

This festival is one of the biggest in the world and it a showcase for new work from independent film makers. What once was a small town festival today is something that is attended by the Hollywood elite, paparazzi and non-Hollywood people alike. It garners headlines in the entertainment magazines as well as the local and national news as it’s a who’s who of the entertainment world. Some winners go on to win the major awards while others are never seen again, but having a film shown at such a prestigious festival is sometimes all the people associated with it want.

So, if you have thought about attending the Sundance Film Festival, but don’t like near Park City Utah, you can get there by chartering a jet. Chartering is miles above when compared to the commercial airlines. For starters there is the roomy interior of a charter jet cabin, one who’s seats can be configured in many different ways to suit your needs. Second is the lack of long security lines, third you can fly on your schedule and fourth, well, it’s just cool to know you are arriving like the stars, and as a side note, you’ll always know your luggage is on board with you!

Chartering is cheaper than you may think and it’s something that makes even small trips more special. If you are sick of being cramped on an overcrowded flight, if you can’t handle one more march through security or if you just want a relaxed way to fly, you have it all in a charter jet.

Charter jets come in all shapes and sizes and there is one just waiting to whisk you and your part away to the Sundance Film Festival.

Charter To The Belmont

Held each year at Belmont Park in New York, the Belmont Stakes has always been known as The Test of the Champion as it is the last of the Triple Crown races and also the longest at one and a half miles long. It is open to three year old horses, fillies and colts alike who want to take their chances at either completing the Triple Crown (if they have been lucky enough to win the previous two races) or in upsetting the front runner and favourite.

In some years the Belmont Stakes may mean a new champ is crowned, but as there have only been twelve horses in history to take the Triple Crown, the Belmont is usually just a great race between amazing horses who duke it out in the Run for the Carnations.

It is the oldest of the Triple Crown races, with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes being the other two, and if you don’t live in New York but want to attend, how about chartering a jet to do just that?

Chartering a jet gives you plenty of leg, shoulder, head and elbow room and allows you to get to where you want to go on your schedule, not that of the major commercial airlines. There is also reduced security waiting time, and you know that your luggage will be with you at all times, not headed off in the opposite direction.

One of the best things about a charter jet is that they can land at smaller airports avoiding the crowds at the major hubs around the country. This means you spend less time navigating the crowds and more time enjoying your trip.

So, who will be the next big star that emerges from the Belmont? The fastest time ever is still held by the great Secretariat back in 1973. That year he also won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes in record time, something we haven’t seen since. Secretariat also holds the record in the margin of victory category, as he won by thirty one lengths over the rest of the field.

Who will win the blanket of carnations next? And will you have arrived to see it in style and comfort or have battled the crowds and the commercial airlines and arrived frazzled and tired? Chartering is less expensive than you may think and think of all the hassle it saves.
