How To Prepare Your Aircraft For Winter

Winter is on its way, and along with the fun of the festive season it’s also bringing sleet, snow and ice – none of which are great news for aircraft owners, pilots or charter companies! Prepping your aircraft and storing them correctly are key to making the most of this season as well as reducing repairs and maintenance.

Aircraft maintenance and storage tips from Monmouth Executive Airport 

  • Change your oil: Winter is the perfect time to change your oil, removing old oil that is filled with dirt and contaminants. When you do this, be sure to use a preservative oil mixture (one quart of preservative oil is recommended). After doing this, take a quick flight to make sure the engine becomes well-lubricated with the new mixture.
  • Check the sparkplugs: Remove your sparkplugs and spray the fitting with a preservative oil mixture before putting them back into place.
  • Fill your tanks: Even though you won’t be using your aircraft for a while, filling up your fuel tanks to capacity is a good idea. This reduces the moisture that can condense within your tank if it is only partially fuel, and minimizes cracking in flexible rubber tanks. The fuel will easily last the winter, as quality fuel is good for at least a year.
  • Remove your battery: If you’re not going to be flying much this winter, now’s a good time to remove your battery as it likely won’t hold charge while in storage. Store the battery in a safe location out of the cold. You can also hook up your battery to a trickle-charger every few weeks to maintain the charge and keep the battery in good working condition.
  • Critter-proofing: Mice, rats and other small animals will see your aircraft and hangar as a good place to hide out from the bad weather, and they can cause considerable mess and damage to your aircraft. No food should be left in the vicinity and all holes should be securely plugged. Pitot tube covers and vent covers are essential.

Expanding Your Fleet? Find A Private Airport In NJ That Can Accommodate You

Private jet charter flights and flying by private jet is one of the fastest-growing industries in the USA. So, it’s no surprise that new charter companies are forming and established ones are looking to grow. But to grow, you need the right space and facilities to support your business and your clients. Monmouth Executive Airport has the solution.

• Room to grow

Many major airports in the USA are surrounded by the cities in which they are located. So, they are finding that room to expand is severely limited. This makes them unable to meet the demands for expansion without incurring a massive cost. In contrast, Monmouth Airport is located outside of the city limits while still a convenient drive or helicopter ride from Downtown Manhattan. As such, we have hectares of land open for development. We are focused on building hangar space and developing world-class facilities in line with client and charter company expectations.

We have private, communal and t-hangars available for immediate use. These can be either rented or purchased at competitive rates. We also have affordable development plans for you to custom build your hangar to your exact specifications.

• Affordable aviation fuel programs

Making Monmouth Airport a travel hub for the tri-state area is even easier with our well-priced aviation fuel. We offer both Jet-A and Avfuel 100 at rates that are competitive with or at lower rates than alternative airports, including Morristown and Teterboro. Volume fuel and self-service discounts are offered through our loyalty program.

• Whatever your jet, we can handle it

Room to build custom aircraft hangars with office space and aviation fuel discounts are great positives to partnering with Monmouth Airport. But that means nothing if your jets can’t land or take off safely. Fortunately, we have a solution there too. Our main runway clocks in at 7,300 feet: the longest runway of any private airport in the country. It can accommodate almost all classes of jets with ease. We also have a long secondary runway at 3,500 feet for smaller aircraft and reduced air traffic.

• The sky is the limit when your charter company partners with us

In addition to our competitively priced hangars and aircraft hangar packages, we also offer private owners and charter companies world-class support and FBO services. From lavatory servicing, de-icing services, and fuel loyalty programs to our well-appointed waiting lounge and concierge services, we strive to offer pilots, crews, and passengers a truly high-quality experience.

Safety first: Features at private airports

As transport hubs, both commercial and private airports are responsible for providing measures that allow airplanes, crews and clients to utilize their facilities safely within reason. While the requirements for safety and security measures differ between the two types of airport, private airports like Monmouth Executive Airport strive to ensure high levels of safety and security without compromising service and efficiency. Here’s how:

Safety features for passengers 

Unlike the strict and lengthy customs and baggage screening passengers would expect at a commercial airport, private airports are not required to take these measures. Baggage, documents and persons can be scanned quickly before takeoff, making it a quick, easy and convenient process. This allows them to deliver the highest quality of service without causing any delays or requiring passengers to arrive hours before their flight.

In addition, only the highest quality FBO services are available at the airport itself. From reliable concierge services and limousine services to secure executive airport parking and transfers, you can expect only the best in service and security for yourself and your belongings.

Safety features for aircraft 

These essential services are covered by the airport in order to ensure the smooth and safe operation of aircraft while on their grounds, and include:

  • Regular cleaning of the runways to remove debris that can damage aircraft and be sucked into aircraft engines
  • All maintenance of runways and grounds to ensure the quality of their condition
  • 24-hour de-icing services
  • 24-hour fuel availability
  • On-field aircraft maintenance services
  • 7,300 foot runway designed specifically to handle large jets and landings in inclement weather
  • Security fencing to prevent vehicles from accessing runway areas
  • 24-hour LED-based airport lighting and rotating beacon
  • 24-hour access to Ground Power Units (GPUs)

How to safely store your personal jet or airplane

Properly storing your aircraft is part of being a responsible owner – and this means evaluating your options to find out what works best for you. Monmouth Executive Airport takes a look at the pros and cons of different storage options.

Tie-down or hangar? 

The most common tie-down is a three-point tie-down that involves securely fastening your aircraft at each of the wings and the tail to attachments placed in a dedicated aircraft parking lot. This option is the most affordable option in terms of upfront costs and it is effective at ensuring that your airplane won’t tip in strong winds. However, your aircraft will be at the mercy of the elements, including sun, snow and winds, which can lead to significant increases in maintenance costs that can quickly outweigh the apparent affordability of this option.

Hangar space for rental or purchase is the more expensive option, but it does keep your aircraft safely out of the elements. Generally speaking, there are two main types of hangars – T-hangars and shared hangars. Shared hangars are communal and therefore more affordable, but airplanes can suffer from bumps and minor accidents caused by other airplanes moving in and out of the space if not managed properly. T-hangars are t-shaped with a narrow back end to fit the tail and a wider front to fit the wings. These are not shared hangars and allow aircraft owners the luxury of having their own space in which to store their aircraft, work on it and even have their own office space.

Hangar space available now at Monmouth Executive Airport 

If hangar space is the right storage option for you, Monmouth Jet Center can assist you. With aircraft hangar space available immediately as well as competitively priced leasing and custom construction deals, your airplane or private jet will soon be housed safely and protected from the elements.

In addition to our aircraft storage solutions, we offer you access to affordably priced aviation fuel (including AVGas and Jet-A), high-end amenities, 24-hour operations, onsite aircraft mechanic and maintenance crews, and the longest private runway in the country at 7300 feet. Just over an hour’s drive from Manhattan and located outside of high-traffic Class B airspace, we offer you a world-class airport and flying experience.

Don’t let bad weather add to your travel frustrations

With winter comes rain, snow, sleet… and travel nightmares. With frustration over delayed and cancelled flights increasing over this season, it’s no surprise that business and leisure travellers are turning to private aircraft companies to help them get to where they need to be. But how do private airports like Monmouth Jet Center manage to offer a solution when large national and international airports and carriers can’t?

  • More airport options: There are far more private airports than commercial options, as they don’t require the same infrastructure and support. This means that private airplane companies can be more flexible with their flight plans, flying around bad weather and avoiding areas where the weather has made the airport inaccessible.
  • Quick turnaround times: Commercial airliners can easily get grounded by bad weather, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded for days or even weeks. Smaller private jets have a much faster turnaround time, allowing them to start using runways safely as soon as the weather allows. This makes all the difference when you need to get the first available flight out to your destination.
  • Manageable infrastructure: Private aircraft are able to use much smaller runways than their commercial counterparts. These runways can be cleared quickly in the event of a window in the weather, allowing you to get up in the air as soon as possible.
  • Reduced traffic: Flight backlogs can leave you stranded even after the weather has cleared – but not at private airports where there is less traffic and a fast turnaround time on private flights.
  • De-icing services: The cost of de-icing a private jet – as well as any delays – is carried by the charter company, ensuring that your ticket stays on budget regardless of the weather.
