Fees are set by
the individual pilots, but are typically $250 to $350 a day,
depending upon the aircraft and the distance involved, plus
gas, meals, and motel.
Tipping the pilot for a job
well done is customary. Payments are generally made directly
to the pilot in cash, although some may authorize us to
accept payments on a credit card on their behalf.
to estimate what all of this might cost? Figure the
distance involved, and what your fuel expense might be. Add
to that $250 to $350 a day (the ferry pilot's fee) , and an
estimate meals, motel, needed charts, needed ground
transportation, and my fee (see below).
remember to tip the pilot a job well done. $50 to $100 or
more isn't out of line, especially on a long flight.
The total cost of a cross-country airplane delivery can be
around $1 or so a mile, while shorter flights are going to
cost more, of course, given the fixed costs involved.
Some planes cruise at faster speeds and take more fuel, but
use less motel, meals, and pilot time. Often, the plane is
full of fuel at the beginning of the trip, courtesy of the
seller, saving the buyer some cost, and pilots tned to fly
longer into the evening during the Summer months, covering
more distance per-day. Winter trips, on the other hand, tend
to take longer and are more expensive. Also, VFR flights
often require the purchase of charts, where IFR-equipped
planes often have modern GPS equipment, saving that expense.
If expensive charts are necessary, we need to pass that
expense on to the client, and quote "so much a day for
the pilot, plus fuel and charts"...
