Operator Procedures

Fueling Aircraft

Aircraft must be fueled after use. The fuel is self service, but we have an in-house fuel card that is used to swipe for fuel. After fueling, the receipt is kept and put in the “fuel ball” which is attached to the card. The “fuel ball” is located in the office. In the event of after hours return, the ball will be provided in the lockbox. Please remember to leave the “fuel ball” back in the lockbox.

Access to Aircraft

During business hours: Renters must report to the desk associate/dispatcher at the front desk, and “check-out” the aircraft with them. Once they check you out in the computer, they will give you the can and you can be one your way!

After business hours: Cans, the “fuel ball”, and any requested headsets will be left in the lockbox. There is a code that will be given to you at the time of rental confirmation. Also, attached to the “fuel ball” is a key to open the gate door. Please remember to leave the “fuel ball” back in the lockbox, and to not accidentally take it with you.

Returning the Aircraft

During business hours: Report to the desk associate/dispatcher to “check – in.” You can fill out any necessary squawks with a form from the dispatcher.

After business hours: Your can and any headsets should be put into the lockbox near the side door. The “fuel ball” will be left inside for you to refuel. Please remember to put the “fuel ball” back into the lockbox. You may email, call or leave a note with any squawks.

Getting Reimbursed if You Buy Fuel Elsewhere

We will reimburse you for fuel UP TO the current price on our home field. Renter is responsible for the difference, in addition to any landing fees, convenience fees, etc. We can issue a credit on account, or a check for the reimbursement. You must keep your receipt and hand it in after your flight.

Mechanical Problems at another airport

Your safety is of utmost importance. Be sure you are in a safe area, and if possible the aircraft as well. Call our shop during business hours, at either (609)-259-6877 or (609)-259 2400. In an emergency, call the owner directly at (732) 691-6316. We will then determine whether to send a mechanic to you, or we will contact someone on that field to do any minor maintenance. If any major repairs are needed, we will come pick you up. Every scenario is different, so we will do our best to get you moving ASAP.

Securing Aircraft

The aircraft should be returned to the tie-down in which you took it from (after you have refueled, of course). The airplane must be chocked, cowl plugs replaced, and the yokes secured (especially if it is windy). In the winter months, the engine heaters must be plugged in. You will see extension plugs run to each tie down. Simply plug it in when you return.

Caution areas where hangar rash is most likely

None in particular, however there are many tied-down aircraft located near our facility and near the fuel pump. Use extra caution when near other aircraft.

What fuel load to expect and how to change it

Aircraft should be pre-fueled to tabs. Customers should fill after every flight. However, in the event that the aircraft is not fully fueled, a fuel card is always provided to fuel if necessary. If you need to make special arrangements (ex- weight issues) please call the office a few days ahead of time to ensure that we do not over-fuel.
