Summer Lovin'

Charter a Plane

There's something about being whisked away on a private plane that gets the heart stirring. And it's not just the two of you taking in the world from your very own 36,000-foot view. It's the act of driving right up to the plane, with no TSA agents between you and the Champagne flutes. Le Bas International, a charter outfit in San Luis Obispo, Calif., can create the ultimate date: Its fleet of Dassaults, Gulfstreams, and Bombardiers will fly you anywhere on this fine globe. The Dassault Falcon 2000 (the fanciest in the fleet) has wide, reclining leather seats for up to eight people, a flat-screen TV, plush carpeting, and a dining table. A cabin attendant caters to your every need—cheese, wine, movies, cashmere blankets, Barry White pillow music.… Should your travel plans take you over an ocean or two, the sofa in the back of the cabin can be converted to a queen-size bed so the two of you can enjoy the sunset over the Pacific in complete privacy. Take off your shoes whenever you're ready—not when somebody tells you to.
