A bit about us. Here at Flapper we are passionate about technology and customer experience. The company was born of a need for accessible on-demand private aviation flying services, including flights to Premium destinations inaccessible to commercial aviation. Using our app and corporate booking platforms, passengers can book affordable turbo-prop- and helicopter flights, or charter one of 200+ certified aircraft across the country. We are proud to be Brazil’s first on-demand marketplace for certified jet- and helicopter rentals.
Flapper’s value proposition is simple – to bring the most complete private aviation offer closer to the frequent flyers. This can be understood in two ways. First, by popularizing shared services, we aim to disrupt the existing market and effectively open private aviation services to the upper middle class travellers. Secondly, by aggregating the fleets of selected air taxi operators and automating the booking process, we solve the key paint points of the existing charter clients. Accordingly, the end price range for the flight between the popular São Paulo – Rio de Janeiro route can vary between 950 reais (US$300) for an individual seat in King Air B200GT airplane to R$11000-R$21000 (US$3000-6000) for a private aircraft rental.
We believe in Brazil, its people, and excellent opportunities for growth in the region. Widely considered the world’s second business aviation market, Brazil has experienced an undisrupted growth of general aviation fleet in the last 10 years and is projected to expand at the annual rate of 7% in the next 5 years, second only to Asia Pacific.
