determined schedule, L & W
will take up to five passengers
to any airport at any time.
Most of Mr. Levy's customers
fly to destinations within a 500-
mile radius, the maximum dis-
tance the twin-engine Seneca
can go without needing to refu-
el. Mr. Levy said that, because
of the speed of the plane, which
is slower than a commercial car-
rier, it may not be feasible for
the customer to travel beyond
that distance.
"Although the charter trav-
els at slower speeds, passengers
can still get to their final des-
tination quicker," said Mr. Levy,
who employs a total of four pi-
lots.
A commercial flight to New
York takes about two hours. An
L & W flight takes two hours
and 45 minutes, but saves the
passenger in drive time to and
from the airport, he explained.
"Saving time is the biggest
benefit," said Mark Stavropou-
los, vice-president of Wolverine
Carbide Die Co. and a frequent
L & W flyer. "You don't waste
time in airports, parking your
car or waiting for connecting
flights. With a charter, you're
on your own schedule and you
can fly into some of the smaller
airports, putting you closer to
your destination."

Clement Levy
knows
traveling
can be a hassle.

Passengers flying on Mr.
Levy's charters pay for char-
tering the plane rather than the
number of passengers. Since
each flight can accommodate up
to five travelers, it costs the
same for one passenger as it
would for five.
Mr. Stavropoulos, who flies
on business about once every
other month, said he often finds
it cheaper to take a charter than
fly commercial airlines.
"Usually, weekday fares on
commercial airlines are so ex-
pensive," Mr. Stavropoulos said.
"For example, about six months
ago a commercial airline want-
ed $750 for a one-week-in-ad-
vance-purchase round-trip
ticket to Rochester, N.Y. I and
another person flew to
Rochester on L & W for $900.
You can cut travel costs by
bringing people with you."
L & W Flying Services, Inc.
averages one or two charter
flights a week. Mr Levy said the
bulk of its clientele consists of
returning customers.
In addition to his twin-engine
charter plane, Mr. Levy owns
five single-engine planes which
he rents to customers and uses
for flight school. O
