What does it take to become a corporate jet pilot?

monmouth-runway.fwThe world of corporate jet aviation is an exciting challenge for pilots around the world, offering you the chance to fly to exciting destinations in some of the most technologically advanced and innovative aircraft around. Here are just some of the requirements necessary to make this challenging and adventurous career change.

Requirements for corporate jet pilots

The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) requires you to have private pilot, commercial pilot or ATP certification as well as a rating for the specific aircraft you will fly in order to qualify as a private jet pilot. This is because of the wide range of aircraft in this category as well as the speed and complexity of jet systems.

In addition, you will have to achieve a multi-engine class rating and an instrument rating, as almost all jets have more than one engine and fly above 18,000 feet. To fly a jet above 25,000 feet, a high-altitude endorsement is required and operators may also request high-performance and complex aircraft endorsements as well.

Lifestyle requirements for private jet pilots

Whilst anyone with the correct qualifications can become a private jet pilot, it is a career which places huge demands on your lifestyle. Unlike a ‘nine to five’ job, you’ll be required to be highly flexible with your working hours in order to deliver the exceptional quality and bespoke services the industry is known for. You will have to spend a considerable amount of time away from home, family and friends, as well as be able to take on the considerable responsibility which is the safety and welfare of your passengers and crew. Many operators also look to their pilots as ambassadors to their brand and the industry itself, putting you and your crew front and center in the private jet experience.

At Monmouth Executive Airport, we offer world-class facilities for operators, crew and clients alike, from executive travel and parking services to competitively priced aviation fuels and hangar space in New Jersey. For more information, please visit our website at monmouthjetcenter.com today.

Your guide to empty leg charter flights – what you need to know

monmouth-airport-logoIf you’re looking to book a charter flight for business or pleasure, you’ve probably come across the term “empty leg flight” a few times – but what are these flights and how can you use them to your benefit? Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey explains:

What is an “empty leg” charter flight? 

Essentially, this happens when a private airplane has to fly empty in order to reposition for its next flight – either because it needs to meet a client at a different airport or because it was chartered for a one-way flight and needs to return.

How is this type of charter flight beneficial to me?

Flying privately on chartered aircraft is a highly bespoke aviation service and companies are unlikely to find clients who are looking to fly at the particular time and day the aircraft needs to leave to meet its next commitment. As the aircraft has to make the trip regardless, the companies offer this otherwise empty leg of the journey on a first-come, first-served basis at a significant discount – often up to 75% of the regular rates, depending on the trip and operator.

Who can use empty leg flights?

These flights are ideal for clients who have highly flexible travel timetables and are looking to enjoy a private jet experience without the typical private jet price tag. While you compromise on your travel time, you will still have the benefits private jet travel including: customized meals, executive parking, rapid boarding and customs, luxury pet travel, privacy and access to uncongested, smaller airports.

One such airport is Monmouth Executive Airport, a small yet state-of-the-art facility just 20 minutes from New York City. Offering 24-hour airport services and amenities, including concierge services and catering as well as limousine and taxi airport transfers, we offer operators and their valued clients world-class service at every turn.

Accommodating Charter Flights at Monmouth Jet Center

Monmouth Executive AirportWhether flying for business or pleasure, charter companies design their rates and services to be as accommodating as possible – making charter jet flights a popular choice for clients flying with children and even pets. Here is some helpful advice on what to expect from your aviation partners:

When planning on traveling with children on a charter jet:

  • Inform the charter jet company: This allows the company the opportunity to ensure that your children’s needs are individually catered for and accommodated. This can include food preferences, games and entertainment, as well as facilities and extras for babies.
  • Accommodate your routine: Charter jet companies aim to make your trip as enjoyable and comfortable as possible, so staff will work with you to help your children keep to your preferred routine. This includes providing comfortable reclining seats and divan seating for naps.
  • Your luggage: Traveling with children often means extra luggage, such as strollers or cribs, need to be accommodated. Your private jet company can assist you with this and ensure there is sufficient space onboard to meet your needs.

When planning on traveling with pets on a charter jet:

  • Your pet’s needs: Charter jet companies know how important your pets are to you, so they will work with you to ensure their needs are met, from seating them inside the cabin, rather than in cargo, to food preferences at meal times and other luxuries.
  • Safety first: Your pet’s safety is as important as your own, so your charter company may specify that certain safety measures are adhered to. This may include having your pet on a leash at certain times, having a safety harness or a carrier for smaller pets. These rules will differ from company to company, so be sure to enquire.
  • International travel: Pets are welcome on international as well as national flights but will need to have the relevant documentation and vaccinations in order to enter your destination country.

How to choose the right airplane – and airport – for your charter flight

monmouth-airport.fwIf you are looking to harness the convenience, flexibility and exclusivity of private aviation for business or pleasure, then charter jets are the right choice. Making the process of booking your charter flights as smooth and quick as possible simply means taking into consideration a few vital factors.

1. How many people are flying?

How many guests or clients you are flying with will help narrow down which aircraft will be the most comfortable to fly in. Light jets and twin-engine propeller aircraft can seat up to 9 passengers, whilst medium to heavy jets can accommodate around 10 to 19 passengers. When choosing your aircraft, be sure to take your guest’s luggage and other onboard items into account as well.

2. Layout

Different aircraft offer a range of layout options for comfort and usability during the flight. From traditional layouts to living room and office layouts, be sure to ask operators how they can accommodate the needs of you and your guests or clients.

3. Distance

You will have a wide range of charter aircraft to choose from if you are flying a short distance, but far more limited options if you are travelling to a more distant destination. A good rule of thumb is to upgrade to a light jet or higher if you are flying for more than 3 to 4 hours, keeping in mind that light jets will have to stop for fuel more often than heavy jets. Propeller aircraft will also limit the speed at which you can travel and they often use more fuel, so a better hourly rate could still translate into a longer, more costly flight.

4. How often are you flying?

If you only need to fly a few times a year, charter operators are the ideal way to source your flights at no extra expense. However, for more frequent flyers who often have to take one-way flights, a jet card or charter broker will likely be able to manage the cost, paperwork and organization of your flights far more effectively.

At Monmouth Executive Airport, we pride ourselves in enhancing the charter jet experience by providing exceptional facilities and support to charter companies, including high quality, competitively priced rates, fuel and hangar space in New Jersey, ensuring a high-quality travel experience before you even leave the ground.

Your guide to jet charter costs and what they really mean

BLM_picUnlike commercial flights, whose rates are calculated primarily on a per passenger basis, jet charter costs are based on a very different set of criteria. If you’re planning to charter a private jet or aircraft, it’s important to know how these prices are calculated in order to ensure you, your guests and/or clients are getting a value for money service.

  • Choice of aircraft – This is a significant factor in costing a charter flight as you will be hiring the entire aircraft and crew rather than booking a per passenger ticket. The type, size and exclusivity of the aircraft will determine the hourly rate the operator or owner will quote you.
  • Flight distance – Charters are calculated using hourly rates so the further you fly, the higher the cost. While most aircraft are available for shorter flights, longer flights may require you to charter specific jets to ensure you arrive quickly and safely without fuel stops.
  • Crew – Depending on the aircraft you hire, you may have two or more pilots, flight attendants and support crew on board and this expense is worked into the final charter cost.
  • Passenger fees – Every country has a different approach to charter flights and some require passengers to pay a levy or tax for landing in the country. These fees may vary significantly depending on your destination.
  • Airport landing fees – These are set individually by each airport according to the weight of the aircraft you hire and can vary significantly depending on your destination.
  • Handling fees – Once on the ground, charter aircraft have to be managed through FBO services. This includes refueling, sanitation, executive travel and parking services, catering and so forth and will vary from airport to airport.
