Private Airports Are Gearing Up For The 2017 Kentucky Derby

Haskell Invitation

The Run for the Roses, the most exciting two minutes in sport… the Kentucky Derby is Southern style and sport at its finest, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the biggest events for charter companies and top private airports like Monmouth Executive Airport.

Why visit the Kentucky Derby?

Although it’s one of the most famous sporting events in the world, drawing horse racing fans from all over the continent and the world, it offers much more than the horse races themselves. Other than the thrill of the race and placing your bet on your favorites, this event is all about celebrating the South.
With a carnival-like atmosphere, the Kentucky Derby Festival is a vibrant celebration for the whole family. There’s also a wide range of official events, including the Barnstable Brown Gala, the Unbridled Eve Derby Gala and the Fillies & Lilies event. Expect high fashion, Southern charm and, of course, the rich and famous!

Private Or Commercial Airports– What’s Best For Hangar Space For Your Jet?

Finding the right location for storing your aircraft is no simple task – overlooked by many first-time buyers, storage options often come last on the list. With several options including aircraft hangar space at both large commercial airports and private airports, aircraft owners can struggle to find the right fit for their aircraft and their budget. Here are some helpful tips from Monmouth Executive Airport.

  • Commercial airports mean heavy traffic: Commercial airports are important transportation hubs, so crowded airspace and busy roads at all times of the day and night should be expected. While this doesn’t relate to aircraft storage directly, it does impact on your aircraft use. Additional hours of travel and delays on the tarmac are a huge inconvenience, whether you are flying for your own pleasure or running a charter service.
  • Space is at a premium: Aircraft storage space can be a struggle to find and expensive when you do find it. In a worst-case scenario, your investment could end up crowded into a communal hangar or tied down on the tarmac to face the harshest elements. Weather and wind damage mean more maintenance and repairs more often, which can cost you in the long run.
  • Distance from your location: Finding affordable aircraft storage can mean travelling far from home, which means less time flying and more time on the road. It is also not ideal for charter services, as clients are less likely to want to travel far to get to the airport.

Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey has affordable hangar space 

Located outside of crowded Class B airspace, Monmouth Airport is still just a quick hour’s drive by car (or 20 minutes by helicopter) to the center of Manhattan, making us a real alternative to congested New York City, Philadelphia and Jersey Shore gateway airports.

As part of our expansion and development plan, we’ve opened up space to meet the demands of private pilots and charter companies for affordable, high quality aircraft hangar space. In addition to communal hangar space, we also offer T-hangars, options for custom build hangars and flight office space. Our FBO services and aircraft maintenance services have been upgraded to match this world-class offering, including the supply of fuel at competitive or cheaper rates than competitors in the region.

Travelling With Your Pet – Commercial VS. Private Airports

For many of us, our pets are part of our family, and we want to bring them with us on vacation and share the excitement of travel with them. However, flying commercially with your pet is very different to using a private aircraft – here are some insights from Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey.

Flying on a commercial airliner with your pet 

  • Paperwork: Your pet needs to be 8 weeks or older and have all required vet vaccinations up-to-date, complete with paperwork. Rabies vaccinations are compulsory, while some airlines also require parvo vaccination certificates.
  • Tickets: Each airline has different booking requirements for pets, so it is important to call ahead and find out exactly what you need to do. Some require fees for travel in the form of a ticket, while others are weighed on-site and dropped off at a specific airport location up to a few hours before your flight.
  • Travel housing: Because your pet will be travelling in a pressurized hold, you will be required to house your pet in a travel kennel that meets certain size specifications. Some airlines also require a food and water supply in the crate. Some airlines will, however, allow you to keep your crated pet in the cabin with you – but only if there is space.
  • Travel experience: Pets are generally separated from their owners and from before they board the aircraft, as they are loaded by staff into the pressurized hold. While every precaution is taken, there have been instances where pets have been left in harsh environmental conditions out on the tarmac while flight delays and other issues are solved. They cannot be monitored properly during the flight and the noise of the experience itself can be very stressful for even the most well-adjusted pets.

Private jet travel with pets 

Flying with a pet from a private airport like Monmouth Executive Airport where we offer world-class FBO services and amenities is a very different experience, both for you and your furry friend. Private jet companies are happy to go above and beyond for all their clients – and this includes pets. Although the same vaccine and health requirements are in place when you fly privately, the similarities stop there.

Simply notify the charter company that your pet will be accompanying you and they will do everything they can to accommodate them in comfort, from keeping your pet with you in the cabin to planning specific meals and treats for your pet. Leashes are important for safety purposes on the tarmac, and crates are advisable for smaller pets to ensure their safety during takeoff and landing, but you will always be in close contact with your pet to keep them calm, happy and enjoying their flight.
