Low-time and no airline privileges? We don't mean to offend, but our clients want an experienced pilot flying their airplane, and don't want to buy airline tickets, when pilots with passes are available.

To help keep expenses and travel time down, we try to hire a ferry pilot reasonably close to the point of origin or the destination, or at least along the flight path. For example, we wouldn't normally hire a pilot from California to deliver a plane from Boston to Miami.

What do little birdies say?  A great way to build time without paying for it.Time-Builder Flights:
Some clients trying to save money will consider using a lower-time pilot wishing to build time. These flights generally are in smaller aircraft, like Cessna 150's, 172's, or Piper Cherokee 140's. The pilot is not paid (although we remind the client to tip at least $100 for a job well done) , but the expense of fuel, needed motel and meals, and necessary ground transportation are covered by the client. The pilot must get to the plane and home from the destination on his own, but the total cost to the pilot is often less than renting would have been for a cross-country adventure, and these flights are very popular.


How This Works

I am acting as an agent in this transaction, placing you in touch with a client needing an airplane ferried. I am paid by the client, generally $125 for single engine or light twin in the lower 48 states. Finding pilots for over-water or foreign trips is more, or if you require a CFI to accompany you, or an A&P mechanic to inspect the plane before ferrying it. Whatever arrangement you make with the client is between the two of you, and you agree that I am not responsible in anyway for the aircraft or the transaction. Be sure that I have a copy of your flight resume', so that I can provide information about you to the client and the insurance company covering the flight. You fly under the owner's policy.

Pay cuts, sometimes the result of downgrades in rank or shortened workweeks, are occurring more frequently than at any time since the Great Depression.

It is the responsibility of the client to approve the pilot as qualified to fly the plane and make the deal, and to provide insurance coverage. It is your responsibility to deliver the plane and be paid directly by the client. You are not a Kamakazee, and you should expect the plane to be in airworthy condition. Out-of-Annual aircraft, with a ferry permit, are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Call me to move your plane quickly.Generally, our veteran pilots with airline privileges charge $250 a day for light aircraft in the lower 48 states, sometimes more, plus all the expenses of the trip, including fuel, meals, motels, charts, and needed ground transportation. Lower-time pilots, or pilots without airline privileges need to charge accordingly to be competitive. Twin-engine and more complex aircraft generally command higher fees. Time is generally computed from the time you leave home, until you arrive back home. Clients need to get you to an airport for the trip home, and often tip for a job well done.

Clients sometimes ask us for pilots with CFI and CFI II experience, and they want to ride along to log required insurance time. Some ferry pilots charge extra for that service, others do not.

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 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"... And, again, we remind the client of the custom to "tip the pilot" for good service. Some clients do, others don't.

All parties, including pilot, aircraft owner, and anyone else involved, agree that I am simply providing contact with pilots willing to ferry aircraft, do not warranty the qualifications or abilities of pilots presented, and am held harmless from all subsequent actions.
