Private or commercial airports – What’s best for hangar space your jet?
Finding the right location for storing for 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.
