THE 5 MOST CHALLENGING RUNWAYS IN THE WORLD

ravelling by air is one of the most exciting and enjoyable ways to discover new and interesting places – and this often means that pilots can encounter some exceptionally challenging take offs and landings on your trip! Here are the five most challenging runways in the world, from Monmouth Executive Airport.

  1. Saba Airport: Located on Saba Island in the Caribbean, this airport is famous for having the world’s shortest commercial runway. Just 1,300 feet long, this runway is edged by cliffs on its extreme ends, and flanked by volcanic mountainside slopes on one length and the sea on the other.
  2. Toncontin Airport: This Honduras airport is extreme in many ways. Not only is it located in a windy valley 3,294 feet above sea level, it’s also surrounded by steep mountains. This means that aircraft have to achieve a stomach-clenching 45-degree bank during decent in order to reach the runway properly.
  3. MCAS Futenma: Located in Okinawa, Japan, this airport is utilized by the Navy and Marine Corps, some of whom have named it the most dangerous air station in the world. This is because instead of being located within a clear zone of open space, it is surrounded almost up to the runway by the homes, schools, businesses and hospitals of the area, as well as over 3,000 people.
  4. McMurdo Station: This runway in Antarctica is long, smooth… and completely made of ice. With weather conditions that can change quickly and severely, months of below-freezing temperatures and almost no support services (you have to land using night vision goggles during dark seasons), this is one of the most challenging runways for any pilot.
  5. Princess Juliana International Airport: Located on the island of St. Maarten in the popular Caribbean Islands, this runway is both hair-raising and busy. Pilots have to fly in incredibly low over a strip of beach, clearing a fence and landing on the fairly short 7,150-foot strip of tarmac. Although built for smaller aircraft, A340s and 747s do land here, making for a spectacular sight.

HOW PRIVATE AIRPORTS MEASURE UP TO THE COMMERCIAL EXPERIENCE

For pilots and travelers flying private jets, there are two options available for your flight – either using a commercial airport or flying to or from a private airport like Monmouth Executive Airport. Here are some of the pros and cons of each.

Pros of landing at a large commercial airport 

  • City location: Generally, commercial airports are located closer to large urban areas, making access to the city easier for business and leisure travelers.
  • Car rental options: Large airports have the space to house all the top car rental companies and their rental stock, giving you more options of vehicle sizes, brands and types if you are looking to hire.
  • Other services: Duty-free shopping areas, service providers, a wide range of restaurants and chain retailers as well as a selection of waiting areas are all staples of large commercial airports.

Cons of landing at a large commercial airport 

  • Landing priority: Preference will be given to large carriers over private jets when landing at commercial airports, which often means delays or more inflexible schedules for private aircraft.
  • Weather: Commercial airports often have stricter regulations around taking off and landing in inclement weather, and may implement blanket flow procedures and ground holds regardless of whether your private aircraft would be affected.
  • Fees: Handling and landing fees are common at major airports and fuel charges are often more expensive as well, which will affect the cost of your flight.
  • Traffic: Air traffic is understandably high at commercial airports and in peak travel times this can cause significant take-off and landing delays. Due to the amount of travelers and cargo they handle, the motorways around commercial airports also often suffer from large volumes of traffic and delays.

Whatever your needs, staff are happy to accommodate you to make your trip more pleasurable.
  • Convenience: If you have a specific time you would like to fly or you would like to arrive as close as possible to your destination, you can when you fly privately.

Private airports are smaller, quieter and offer quick and easy airport transfers as well as executive parking. You can arrive 10 to 15 minutes before your flight and drive right up to the aircraft, bypassing the traditional airport customs process.

Accommodating Charter Flights at Monmouth Jet Center

Monmouth Executive AirportWhether flying for business or pleasure, charter companies design their rates and services to be as accommodating as possible – making charter jet flights a popular choice for clients flying with children and even pets. Here is some helpful advice on what to expect from your aviation partners:

When planning on traveling with children on a charter jet:

  • Inform the charter jet company: This allows the company the opportunity to ensure that your children’s needs are individually catered for and accommodated. This can include food preferences, games and entertainment, as well as facilities and extras for babies.
  • Accommodate your routine: Charter jet companies aim to make your trip as enjoyable and comfortable as possible, so staff will work with you to help your children keep to your preferred routine. This includes providing comfortable reclining seats and divan seating for naps.
  • Your luggage: Traveling with children often means extra luggage, such as strollers or cribs, need to be accommodated. Your private jet company can assist you with this and ensure there is sufficient space onboard to meet your needs.

When planning on traveling with pets on a charter jet:

  • Your pet’s needs: Charter jet companies know how important your pets are to you, so they will work with you to ensure their needs are met, from seating them inside the cabin, rather than in cargo, to food preferences at meal times and other luxuries.
  • Safety first: Your pet’s safety is as important as your own, so your charter company may specify that certain safety measures are adhered to. This may include having your pet on a leash at certain times, having a safety harness or a carrier for smaller pets. These rules will differ from company to company, so be sure to enquire.
  • International travel: Pets are welcome on international as well as national flights but will need to have the relevant documentation and vaccinations in order to enter your destination country.

How to choose the right airplane – and airport – for your charter flight

monmouth-airport.fwIf you are looking to harness the convenience, flexibility and exclusivity of private aviation for business or pleasure, then charter jets are the right choice. Making the process of booking your charter flights as smooth and quick as possible simply means taking into consideration a few vital factors.

1. How many people are flying?

How many guests or clients you are flying with will help narrow down which aircraft will be the most comfortable to fly in. Light jets and twin-engine propeller aircraft can seat up to 9 passengers, whilst medium to heavy jets can accommodate around 10 to 19 passengers. When choosing your aircraft, be sure to take your guest’s luggage and other onboard items into account as well.

2. Layout

Different aircraft offer a range of layout options for comfort and usability during the flight. From traditional layouts to living room and office layouts, be sure to ask operators how they can accommodate the needs of you and your guests or clients.

3. Distance

You will have a wide range of charter aircraft to choose from if you are flying a short distance, but far more limited options if you are travelling to a more distant destination. A good rule of thumb is to upgrade to a light jet or higher if you are flying for more than 3 to 4 hours, keeping in mind that light jets will have to stop for fuel more often than heavy jets. Propeller aircraft will also limit the speed at which you can travel and they often use more fuel, so a better hourly rate could still translate into a longer, more costly flight.

4. How often are you flying?

If you only need to fly a few times a year, charter operators are the ideal way to source your flights at no extra expense. However, for more frequent flyers who often have to take one-way flights, a jet card or charter broker will likely be able to manage the cost, paperwork and organization of your flights far more effectively.

At Monmouth Executive Airport, we pride ourselves in enhancing the charter jet experience by providing exceptional facilities and support to charter companies, including high quality, competitively priced rates, fuel and hangar space in New Jersey, ensuring a high-quality travel experience before you even leave the ground.

Your guide to jet charter costs and what they really mean

BLM_picUnlike commercial flights, whose rates are calculated primarily on a per passenger basis, jet charter costs are based on a very different set of criteria. If you’re planning to charter a private jet or aircraft, it’s important to know how these prices are calculated in order to ensure you, your guests and/or clients are getting a value for money service.

  • Choice of aircraft – This is a significant factor in costing a charter flight as you will be hiring the entire aircraft and crew rather than booking a per passenger ticket. The type, size and exclusivity of the aircraft will determine the hourly rate the operator or owner will quote you.
  • Flight distance – Charters are calculated using hourly rates so the further you fly, the higher the cost. While most aircraft are available for shorter flights, longer flights may require you to charter specific jets to ensure you arrive quickly and safely without fuel stops.
  • Crew – Depending on the aircraft you hire, you may have two or more pilots, flight attendants and support crew on board and this expense is worked into the final charter cost.
  • Passenger fees – Every country has a different approach to charter flights and some require passengers to pay a levy or tax for landing in the country. These fees may vary significantly depending on your destination.
  • Airport landing fees – These are set individually by each airport according to the weight of the aircraft you hire and can vary significantly depending on your destination.
  • Handling fees – Once on the ground, charter aircraft have to be managed through FBO services. This includes refueling, sanitation, executive travel and parking services, catering and so forth and will vary from airport to airport.
