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.

Monmouth Airport is offering a real solution to this challenge by offering the following hangar space for hire in New Jersey or to buy:

  • Prebuilt T-hangars – Ideal for charter operators or private owners, these offer the option of attached office space and easy taxi to either of the two runways.

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.
