Jet Chartering vs. Jet Ownership – All the Pros and Cons

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

There’s no question that using a private jet is the most luxurious way to travel for business or pleasure, but is it better to own your own jet or simply charter one from a leading jet company? Our team at Monmouth Executive Airport in NJ takes a look.

  • Flexibility and Options

When you own a jet, that’s the jet you’ll use for all your travel needs. It sounds simple enough, but things can get tricky when it comes to space, as jets are very restrictive in terms of seating and load capacity. For example, when you own your own jet, you’re limited to the number of guests you can take with you and the quantity of luggage they can bring. If you’re chartering a jet, however, you simply tell the company what your needs are, and they supply the right size jet to make it happen.

  • Overhead Costs

The costs of running, maintaining and storing a private jet – even a smaller one – are prohibitive. In fact, they’re so high that top companies with billion-dollar revenues are choosing to give up their jets and opt for more affordable leasing and private charter agreements. Even the rule of thumb that flying a certain number of hours per year justifies owning a jet doesn’t always work out. For example, if you want to use your jet to go on a 3-week holiday, that means your crew has to fly back on a commercial flight and your jet has to be stored, then your crew has to return later to do your return flight – you can see how expenses can add up rapidly.

  • Convenience

The USA alone has thousands of commercial and private airports that are open to private jets, making them one of the most convenient modes of transport that can get you as close to your destination as possible. When you charter a jet, the company will organize that wherever you are, they can have a jet on-site at a convenient location for you to use. When you own a jet, that jet will have to travel to wherever you are, or you’ll have to travel to it, which is not always convenient for you and can add considerable travel time to your itinerary. This is especially important when poor weather conditions arise, as this may not impact your ability to fly but can make it difficult to access the airport where your jet is stored.

The Best Summer Fly-In Destinations for Pilots Stretching Their Wings

One of the perks of being a pilot is flying in to some of the most interesting and scenic destinations in the world. Here are the top picks for this summer from the team at Monmouth Executive Airport in NJ.

  • Key West (KEYW), Florida Keys: Nothing says “Summer” quite like Florida, so pack your swimsuit and head down to the closest destination to the Caribbean you can get without having to deal with Customs!
  • Dauphin Island (4R9), Alabama: Ever wanted to land on an aircraft carrier? This is the closest most pilots get! Also known as Jeremiah Denton Airport, you’ll come in just 5 feet above sea level onto a runway boarded by water on 3 sides.
  • Block Island (KBID), Rhode Island: This is a great summer destination for anyone who loves exploring the natural world, diving to shipwrecks, and relaxing on wilderness beaches. The landing is pretty dramatic too, with a scenic but short 2,502 x 100-foot runway.
  • First Flight Airport (KFFA), North Carolina: For this trip, you’re flying in the footsteps of the Wright Brothers when you land and take off at this historic airport, making it a must for any pilot. The scenic monument, just steps away from the runway, is truly breath-taking.
  • Grand Canyon West (1G4), Arizona: Admire the mighty Grand Canyon from the ultimate viewpoint as you come in to land on this runway. The land is owned by the Hualapai tribe of Native Americans and there is a landing fee of up to $100, but the view and the experience is well worth it!
  • Mackinac Island (KMCD), Michigan: With a newly reconstructed 3,500 runway, you’re guaranteed a smooth landing on this island destination. It’s a unique holiday experience here, with no motorized vehicles allowed on the island – so be prepared to enjoy a horse carriage ride into town, hiking, cycling and enjoying the historic town.

If you’re one of New Jersey’s aircraft owners, part 135 operators or corporate flight operators, then you need to get to know Monmouth Executive Airport. Here’s why:

  1. We have the longest private runway in the country: At over 7,300 feet, we can comfortably accommodate almost any non-commercial jet, making hair-raising take-offs and landings on shorter runways a thing of the past.
  2. We’re located in Class B airspace: Crowded airspace is stressful for any pilot, no matter how experienced they are. In addition to the extra risk, pilots and passengers have to deal with lengthy take-off and landing delays as well as more complicated flight paths.
  3. All of our FBO services run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: Some private airports limit their FBO services to certain schedules – not us. With crew and passenger lounges, executive limousine and travel services, concierge services, catering, de-icing and lavatory servicing (and much more) operating as and when you need them, all your crew and guest needs are met throughout your stay.
  4. We’re centrally located: Monmouth Jet Center is surprisingly convenient in terms of its location to the central hubs of New York and Philadelphia. Just over an hour’s drive or 20-minute helicopter ride from the center of Manhattan, and just 5 minutes from the Garden State Parkway, it provides quick and easy links for pilots, crew and passengers alike.
  5. Competitively priced fuel: Priced at better rates than Teterboro and Morristown, we offer both AVGas and Jet-A at great rates. In addition to fuel incentive programs, we also offer volume fuel discounts and self-service rates that offer additional savings.
  6. We have airplane hangar space available now!: Protecting your investment is key whether you’re a private pilot or an operator – and the best way to do it is to keep your jet out of the elements. With custom built hangars, common-use hangars, t-hangars and larger aircraft hangars with attached office space for rent or build, qw can meet your specific needs exactly.

What does it take to learn to fly?

Training to become a pilot – whether commercial, private or for recreational purposes – takes several essential things: training, qualifications and passion. Monmouth Executive Airport’s flight school in NJ explores just what it takes to become a pilot.

Who can fly? 

As long as you are at least 17 years old and have passed the Federal Aviation Authority’s medical examination, you can start learning to fly. Generally, this screening process looks for medical issues which can interfere with your ability to fly safely, including heart attacks, fainting spells and seizures. Many people with physical and hearing disabilities can still qualify for training and there is no upper age limit for qualifying.

What qualifications do I need to fly? 

There are three main types of certification, depending on what you would like to achieve in your training. These include a Recreational Pilot License (RPL), a Private Pilot License (PPL) and a Commercial Pilot License (CPL). Most people and flight schools choose to focus primarily on PPL and CPL courses.

At a Part 61 flight school you will be required to do 40 hours of flight training for a PPL and 250 for a CPL, while Part 141 flight school requires 35 and 190 flight hours respectively for each of these licenses. In addition to your flight time, you will have to pass an FAA Third Class medical examination given by an Air Medical Examiner, an FAA written examinations and an oral and flight test given by a FAA Designated Examiner.

What airplanes will I learn on? 

There is a range of airplanes available for flight training and these will differ from school to school. At Eagles View Aviation, Inc., the ten expertly maintained training aircraft include single and twin-engine Cessna airplanes.

Flight school at Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey 

Monmouth Executive Airport is home to Eagles View flight school. With over 20 years of training experience, dedicated Certified Flight Instructors and a fleet of ten aircraft, we have logged over 68 thousand flight instruction hours and trained many career and recreational pilots.
