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.

The Top 10 Reasons To Become A Pilot

There’s no question that being a pilot is an exciting choice, whether you are flying for your own enjoyment or as a career, but what are the most popular reasons for getting into this industry? Monmouth Executive Airport takes a look at the reasons people decide to become pilots.

  1. The view: The view out of an aircraft is like nothing else on earth, transforming even the most everyday landscape into a new world.
  2. The family: Pilots have a certain reputation all over the world… for being a family. Pilots are a great resource for advice, support and a sense of belonging.
  3. Career choices: As a pilot, you have a range of career choices you can make, from flying commercial or private jets, to working with wilderness and rescue services. It’s worth mentioning too that pilots are of value all over the world, giving you a chance to explore new horizons.
  4. The challenge: Being a pilot is all about being calm, cool-headed and quick when it comes to facing critical decisions, and the wrong choice can get you in serious trouble. These challenges are what draw top people to the industry to push the standards of aviation.
  5. The knowledge: Learning to be a pilot is nothing like learning at school – it’s a whole new set of varied skills that you’ll have to put into practice each day, making you smarter and more capable. From learning how to plan properly and make sound decisions, to understanding the workings of aircraft, it’s a whole new skillset to be developed.
  6. First solo flight: Training to fly is a daunting experience, and there’s plenty of book learning too, but if nothing compares to the experience of your first solo flight, then you have what it takes to become a pilot.
  7. A new perspective on life: One thing that stands out about flying is the realization of our true place in the world, and this new perspective of the earth’s significance is one of the primary driving forces behind the careers of many top pilots.

Monmouth Airport, New Jersey: How airports and airlines can effectively manage change and prioritize passengers during times of transition

monmouth-logo

Enhancing the passenger experience is a main aim for many airports and airlines. At Monmouth Airport in New Jersey,  we’re on a mission to create a world class jetport.  We are providers of high quality jetport amenities including De-icing, JetA and AVgas, on airport maintenance, not to mention airplane hanger space in central New Jersey  that is availabe now, and only about an hour from NYC.  With the new ownership of 2013, we take a closer look at how airports and airlines can effectively manage change and ensure the passenger has the best possible experience.

According to Philip Cox-Hynd, a reputable change specialist, there are rules of change that must be taken into consideration if you don’t want passengers to have a bad experience during transition phases. These five rules include:

  • Vision – there must be a shared vision for the airport staff and FBO team to work towards.
  • Power – leadership is vitally important during times of change and all leaders should have closely aligned objectives.  While ownership at Monmouth Airport has changed, we have retained management at the airport insuring continuity of service.
  • Engagement – engaging with the airport employees and ensuring they are aware of the positive effects of change is important.
  • Involvement – involving your team in the process will ensure everyone is working together towards a common cause.
  • Measurement – keeping on top of progress and areas that are failing in the transition strategy will help you to make the desired changes with minimal opportunity for failure.

Airport parking and traffic control at Monmouth Airport

The airport parking and traffic control facilities at an airport used by pilots and passengers alike, play a huge role in the operational experience. There are various airports offering convenient parking and advanced traffic control services in the area, such as Monmouth Executive airport.

Hangars should be located close to the parking areas for convenience and traffic control should be provided by professional individuals who have experience in the industry. Typically speaking, runways should be managed to ensure that passengers are kept safely away from moving jets and other aircraft.

Top five reasons why Monmouth Airport is a great place to base your corporate flight operations

BLM_picMonmouth Airport is one of the best places to base your corporate flight operations. If you’re looking for a new place for your jet or propeller aircraft, here are a few reasons to consider Monmouth Airport:

We accommodate all sizes

Monmouth Airport has available in-hanger parking for all sizes of corporate jet aircrafts. If you’re looking for a hanger for your extra-large jet or super lean aircraft, know that we’ve got available in-hanger parking for you.

In New York, every minute counts

Getting in and around New York City can be frustrating via public transport or a car, but it’s even more frustrating when you can’t even get on or off the ground due to airport delays common to greater NYC airports.  At Teterboro wait times can up to an hour to get a takeoff slot and landing pattterns are often diverted for significant time as well.   Monmouth Airport is an easy Expressway commute to Manhattan and is conveniently located a few miles outside of New York area “Class B” airspace and 1 mile outside of “Mode C”, making for effortless arrivals and departures.

Great prices

Renting a hanger for a corporate jet aircraft can be expensive, which is why Monmouth Executive Airport is focusing on giving clients an affordable solution. Our in-hanger parking rates are 30% to 40% less than Teterboro or Morristown, making our airport space the economical option.

24/7 operations

We also know that New York City is the city that never sleeps. Our 24/7 operations commenced in December 2013 and we have been up-and-running, full-time ever since.

Competitively priced gas

We have competitively priced Jet A and Avgas available on-field to keep you on the move when you need it, where you need it. We also have a unique covered fueling canopy to keep you as well as your passengers safe from the elements.

Private jet aircraft management services
