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.

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.

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.

Why Smaller Airports Are Better For A Private Jet Charter

When it comes to private air travel, the luxury and convenience of the jets and aircraft are an understandable priority – but there’s another important factor that has significant impact on the quality of the service and flight experience: the airport itself. A recent article in the New York Times revealed that leisure and business travelers are increasingly prioritizing smaller, private airports over big commercial ones. The team at Monmouth Executive Airport looks at why this is.

  • Shorter wait times: International commercial airports process a huge volume of travelers each and every day, with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport leading the way in the USA with a massive 104 million passengers a year. While this is impressive, it does mean that there’s far more traffic to deal with both on the roads to the airport and in airports themselves. Private airports by comparison are located in quieter, low-traffic areas and handle far fewer passengers, so are able to offer a more peaceful, stress-free experience along with individual attention from staff.
  • Less security hassle: Security at large commercial airports has become understandably strict over the last couple of decades, with security checks becoming more invasive and time-consuming. In contrast, flying from a private airport means skipping security checks entirely – all you have to do is arrive at the airport and board your aircraft after a quick standard confirmation of your identity.
  • Easy airport transfers and exclusive services: The services at private airports is designed to complement the exclusive services offered by charter companies, so you can expect efficient airport transfer services and parking for your vehicle (no more frustration of packed multi-story lots), helicopter transfer services to get you into the city, and complimentary FBO services in a comfortable, well-appointed lounge if you need to wait for any reason.

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.
