Private Jet, Helicopter & Commercial Aircraft Charter

Completely Bespoke Jet and Aviation Charter Services for Private Clients

Sentinel Aviation provides a completely confidential and bespoke private jet charter and aircraft management service for private clients. Partnering with us in exact accord with our ethos, Sentinel’s services are utterly tailored into a seamless, discrete, door to door, all-encompassing private aviation charter service with a global outreach.

Sentinel can arrange charters within national borders, internationally or globally. Most business centres on private jet charter, turboprop or rotary wing private charter, which can all be arranged with ease.

We work with Sentinel because, in accord with our practice, no two charters are the same and every flight is meticulously planned and overseen from start to finish. This includes a wide range of ancillaries such as airport (FBO) handling and private or limousine transfer services pre-departure or at destination. Sentinel remains on call 24/7 to be at clients’ service from before take-off until well after the last leg has completed and final tasks have been performed. The Sentinel service is outstandingly personal and can be booked either in conjunction with The Explorations Company’s highly tailored in-country travel services or as a stand-alone charter.


The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

Sentinel Aviation is owned by Roland Dangerfield. After 18 years as a successful British Army officer, Roland turned his considerable talent to commercial aviation. Much of his flying over the next 12 years was in the private sector until he turned his focus to the creation of Sentinel. As a pilot Roland has flown to over 200 destinations in 80 countries; passengers include royal families, politicians, diplomats, personalities from the sports, film, television and music sectors and high-net-worth individuals from industry and business.

Roland’s exceptional experience brings an unusually broad operational knowledge within the private aviation industry. Crucially for us at The Explorations Company, Roland is unique: not only is he a pilot but also an Aviation Safety and Compliance auditor as well as Aviation Human Factors instructor. Roland therefore primarily selects Sentinel’s operator partners on safety and compliance grounds with cost, whilst naturally always important, being a second-tier driving factor with professional reputation, financial stability and cost effectiveness.
