Tips for Flying your Aircraft in Summer

Here are some summer safety tips for pilots from Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey.

  • Perform ground leaning: Hot days mean ambient air is less dense and if your fuel system is set too rich, this can lead to your engine running rough, carbon building up on your sparkplugs and – as a result – reduced power for takeoff. You can prevent this issue by manually leaning the mixture during your procedures on the ground.
  • Hot starts: If you have an engine that utilizes fuel injection rather than carburetion, you’ll find that it can be more difficult to start on hot days. There’s no one-size-fits-all hot start procedure, so check your manual for what works on your engine (the wrong procedure may actually damage your engine). To prevent having to do a hot start, park in the shade where possible and face directly into any wind. Leave the cowl flaps open to ventilate the engine compartment.
  • Fuel venting: Aviation fuel expands as temperatures rise, so it’s common to see fuel dripping from a wing vent on a hot day. Avoid this wastage by not filling tanks completely to the brim if your aircraft is out in the heat.
  • Turbulence: Hot air off the surface of the Earth leads to greater turbulence close to the ground, causing more unpleasant or even dangerous flight conditions in very hot areas. Avoid this by planning flights before noon or in the early evening, cruising at least 5,000 feet above the ground on hot days, reducing time spent at lower altitudes and following weather briefing reports to avoid dust clouds.
  • Thunderstorms: Frontal and air-mass thunderstorms and severe weather often accompany hot summer days, making a scantest of pre-flight weather briefings essential through the summer. You can also spot these weather conditions as they start to form by watching for warning signs that include – humidity around 50% and dew point within 5 degrees F, winds aloft from a body of water, high-pressure systems with a colder-than-usual air loft, unstable air, winds blowing upslope, hail warnings, multiple pilot reports of cumulus clouds and turbulence.

Exciting Upgrades for USA Airports!

The USA may be a leader when it comes to commercial and international air travel, both private and on commercial airliners, but our airports have long since lagged behind. In 2017, consumer-aviation website Skytrax ranked Singapore Changi International Airport as the best in the world for the 5th time running. The top-ranking USA airport, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, didn’t even make the top 10. Or the top 20. It came in ranked 26th behind Canadian, European and Asian airports. Although funding has come through for upgrades to big commercial travel hubs in the USA, including JFK International, there are some airports that are really taking the lead in the race to provide a more luxurious, efficient and client-first travel experience. Here’s how:

  • More luxurious airport lounges: One of the best features of private jet travel is that your aircraft waits for you – not the other way around. However, on those rare occasions when a client may have to wait, luxury airport lounges make it a pleasure to do so. These spaces have transformed over the years to offer everything from fine dining and spa treatments to stylists and personal assistants. There are even hotel-like rooms where you can rest and relax.
  • Airport transit made easy: From limousine and high-end car rental options to flying into the city by helicopter, airports are stepping up their services to ensure that you have a seamless experience from the moment you leave your front door to when you arrive at your final destination.
  • Custom hangar space: Hangar space is at a premium, but private airports are focusing on opening up their land to offer solutions that keep jets in perfect condition through inclement weather and allow a more efficient and professional service to charter clients. In addition to shared hangar space, charter companies can design their own custom hangar space to be built on-site to perfectly suit their – and their clients’ – needs. This is accompanied by expert on-site aircraft maintenance services and refueling programs, all of which help provide private flyers with an exceptional travel experience.

How to Get 5-Star Treatment on Your Private Flight

While commercial and private air travel may seem similar on the surface, there is a lot that sets these two services apart. Here are some tips for first-time flyers on how to make the most of your private jet experience.

  • It’s all about you: Because you hire the entire aircraft when you fly privately, you aren’t subject to the typical rules applied in commercial aircraft cabins that are designed to accommodate multiple travelers with different needs. This makes it more like being in a private dining room at a top restaurant or a hotel suite rather than on a simple travel service. You can hold a meeting, catch up on your sleep, screen your favorite films, eat your favorite food or simply kick back and relax as if you were at home.
  • So, tailor your in-flight experience: Booking a private flight has become incredibly easy, with apps available to help you find the right company and jet at the best price. However, this is still a mode of travel that is all about the personal touch, so don’t hesitate to speak to your charter company about any specific requirements you need for the flight – they have teams dedicated to making it happen. This can cover anything from bringing pets on board and managing your airport transfers to having all your favorite snacks on hand or a special surprise for your loved one. They can also assist you with any concerns you may have, last minute changes to your schedule and other issues with ease and professionalism.
  • And be prepared: Part of making the most of this luxurious experience is making sure that you’re prepared well in advance and know exactly what private jet travel can offer you. There are plenty of online resources about private in-flight services, private jet etiquette and more – and you always have your charter company on hand to ask questions any time.

How To Prepare Your Aircraft And Hangar For The Storm Season

Severe snow storms, rainstorms and hurricanes are a part of life in New Jersey, and they can play havoc with aircraft and hangars alike. Here are some tips from Monmouth Executive Airport for preparing your aircraft or jet for a storm.

How is a storm dangerous to your aircraft? 

  • Hail: Even small hailstones of half an inch in diameter can cause devastating damage to your aircraft, denting the body, smashing windows and causing significant damage.
  • Lightening: While it is unlikely that lightening itself will damage your aircraft, the electricity transmitted in a strike can travel though wires, boarding steps and other metal objects, which can lead to injuries and damaged electrical systems.
  • Wind: This is arguably the biggest threat to your aircraft, as strong winds can lift aircraft and even flip them over. Other debris carried by the storm can be flung against your aircraft, causing significant damage, or even rip it apart completely.

What to do in the event of an approaching storm 

  • Move your aircraft: If you do not have hangar space for your aircraft, it is best to fly it to an FBO outside of the storm cone. If you have a hangar, secure your aircraft inside the hangar along with any other aircraft that can fit in. Do not wait until winds reach 25 knots or higher, as this can easily push an aircraft around as it is being towed, putting it and the people around you in danger.
  • Insurance: Make a quick call to your insurance company to ensure that your aircraft insurance is up-to-date and that you are sufficiently covered for storm damage.
  • Evaluate your hangar: Make sure the hangar you are using is properly sound and stormproof. When moving an aircraft into the hangar, only open one door as crosswinds can push the aircraft over or into another aircraft. When your aircraft is inside, secure it firmly so that it will stay in place in the event of interference from crosswinds.

Hangar space in NJ – Available for immediate occupation 

The best way to ensure that you and your aircraft are prepared for storms is to hire or buy a hangar. Finding hangar space is a challenge anywhere in the country, but our offering of competitively priced custom aircraft hangars and aircraft storage options along with our central location, makes us a real alternative to the crowded airports of Teterboro and Morristown. Through our world-class amenities, aircraft maintenance, hangars and services, we offer private clients an exceptional flying experience.

Confidence In US Private Jet Industry Continues To Increase In 2018!

Business is booming for the private jet and aviation industry, and a recent study by Victor has revealed some interesting trends that show how the industry is evolving – and what operators have to look forward to in 2018. Here are some interesting insights from the team at Monmouth Executive Airport in NJ.

Bigger jets, exotic locations and unique travel plans 

The Victor report, which focused on US booking trends for 2016, showed that there was a significant increase in demand for larger-capacity jets for long-haul journeys to more adventurous locations. In fact, bookings for big private jets like the Gulfstream IV and Bombardier Global 600 experienced a 98% increase in bookings.

This is also reflected in their consumer behavior findings that revealed an unprecedented 82% of route pairings booked through Victor were unique – showing that journeys weren’t being repeated. Instead, clients were choosing to vary their destinations and even favor more unusual travel locations off the beaten path.

The most popular jets and the most popular destinations

So, what private jets do travelers prefer? The Gulfstream IV, Hawker 800XP, Phenonm 100 and Hawker 400XP all ranked in the top 5, but the ever-popular Citation CJ3, CJ2 and Learjet 60 all ranked in the top 10 as well.

As for where they were going, the top ten destinations for private jet travel included London (UK), Nice (France), Male (Maldives), Zurich (Switzerland), Ibiza (Spain), and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania). More locally, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Havana, and San Jose Del Cabo ranked highly.

Save This Festive Season With Empty Leg Flights

The festive season is here, and we’re all gearing up to spend the holidays with family and friends. If you’re planning on travelling to your vacation destination, charter flights are the way to go – especially since it’s a great time for affordable empty leg flights. Here’s what you need to know, from Monmouth Executive Airport.

What are empty leg flights? 

Like commercial airline companies, charter flight companies try and schedule their services to ensure that there are paying guests on board for every flight. But because of their smaller aircraft and their policy of hiring each aircraft to a client in its entirety, planes have to occasionally make trips without any guests on board in order to fly back to their base or pick up a new guest. These trips are known as empty leg journeys and, to cover the cost of crew and fuel, charter companies offer these flights at a significantly discounted rate to anyone who is available at that time and location.

Discounts sound great – but what’s the catch? 

There is one catch to this great deal, and that is that you have to be flexible with your time and dates for your flight in order to qualify for an empty leg. This is because the jet must fly according to the schedule set for it by top-paying clients, which is why empty legs are so affordable as compensation.

There are a few advantages other than the ticket price for this type of flying. Not only do you and your guests get to experience the luxury of having your own private jet or aircraft, you also get to fly safely in weather that can ground commercial aircraft, skip the crowds and security lines of airports, and even bring your pet with! Last but not least, private aircraft are allowed to land at more airports than commercial liners, so they can often land you much closer to your destination.

Inside Aircraft Hangar Design

Aircraft hangars are often seen simply as a set of walls and a roof that serve to keep jets and other aircraft out of the weather, but there’s a lot more to it than that. In fact, each job is different depending on the scale and environment it’s in. Here’s an interesting guide from Monmouth Executive Airport.

  • Space: Space in an airport or on an airfield is always at a premium – very few hangar designs involve wasting space simply because it is so precious. Making the best use of that square footage is a critical part of hangar design, as it determines exactly what the hangar can be used for. It is especially important in terms of creating an efficient workspace with optimal flow around the aircraft during building, repairs or maintenance.
  • Debris management: Known as Foreign Object Debris (FOD), effectively managing, controlling and removing debris from every critical area of an airport is essential to the safe operation of the aircraft there. If done incorrectly, for example while constructing a hangar, FOD will almost certainly lead to damaged aircraft, as it can be easily sucked into engine intakes. FOD management is critical for efficient, safe hangars, especially where aircraft maintenance takes place.
  • Electrical planning: Safe, adequate electrical access is essential in a quality aircraft hangar. Outlet banks have to be properly designed and placed so as not to compromise aircraft safety or the safety of personnel in the hangar. This might include outlets connected to rafters or scaffolding, or situated in islands on the floor.
  • Floor design: Concrete flooring has to be even, expertly laid and durable. It also has to be able to handle ultra-heavy loads if required, such as large aircraft or stored items and machinery. This means designing for wheel placement, parking loads and entry/exit paths.
  • Doors: Hangar doors have to be secure, stable and easily opened when needed, unaffected by weather conditions that can include snow and ice. They cover a huge span, so they need to be wind resistant.
