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.

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.

Essential Etiquette Tips For Flying By Private Aircraft

Flying by private jet is a truly unique experience and nothing like commercial air travel, and this can leave first-time flyers a little unsure of what is expected of them as guests. Here’s a quick etiquette guide to help you look and feel like an experienced private traveler, and make the trip even better, from Monmouth Executive Airport.

  1. Have your ID documents ready: One of the best things about private air travel is that you have the luxury of skipping all the security lines, but you will still need to identify yourself as the right person on the client list. Your regular ID (driver’s license, for example) is fine for local flights, while international flights will require a valid passport.
  2. Host boards first: If you are travelling as part of a group and a guest of a company or private individual, it’s good manners to let your host board first.
  3. Know your luggage limit: The amount of luggage a private aircraft can carry is dependent on its size, and that means guests have certain baggage restrictions. If you are travelling alone, you can fit the maximum amount of luggage but it’s generally a good idea to pack the minimum advised by the jet company. Soft bags are ideal as they pack easily into the luggage compartment.
  4. Follow pet guidelines: Pets are welcome on private aircraft and are treated just like any other guest on board, but it’s important to speak to your provider and confirm that you will have a pet with you. They will give you advice on how to prepare your pet for travel, and ask you questions about what kind of food and treats they can provide for your furry companion. This makes your trip as special for your pet as it is for you.
  5. Dress the part: While there are no hard and fast rules about dressing for a private flight, it is important to show the appropriate amount of respect for this exclusive service and for your host. Generally, business wear is correct when flying you’re your company, and business-casual is a good default choice for other occasions.
  6. Running late? Let your crew know: Flying by private aircraft means the crew is at your service and ready to go when you are, but it’s polite to keep them informed about your schedule. If something changes, they can react quickly and mobilize crew and airport services to ensure you are in the air as soon as possible after you arrive at the airport.

Helicopter Hangars, Aircraft Hangars And Ground Support Buildings For Sale Or Hire

Private airports perform a pivotal role in the airline industry, not only providing a safe and reliable means to access uncrowded airspace for charter aircraft and pilots, but also ensuring access to high-quality FBO services and aircraft storage options. At Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey, we’ve seen the lack of adequate storage facilities in the region and, as a result, have opened up vast tracts of land for the development of hangar space.

The challenge: Standard and custom hangar space for sale and hire in NJ 

The tristate area is one of the busiest in the private airline industry, feeding the commercial hubs of New York City, New Jersey and Philadelphia. In addition to this traffic generated by charter companies, there are also a multitude of private flying enthusiasts with their individually owned prop airplanes, helicopters and private jets keen to take to the skies. As a result, hangar space is at a premium in this region – making it rarely available and expensive.
