The FAA has provided grant money to fund a hotline-(888) 759-3581-where charter operators can report "suspected illegal commercial activity." The National Air Transportation Association will administer the program. The hotline is designed to allow employees or agents of Part 135 charter certificate holders to report what they believe may be illegal charters, "where an aircraft operator without an FAA Part 135 certificate is accepting compensation for transportation, in violation of both FAA and Department of Transportation regulations," according to NATA.

“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
