Everybody has thought about flying at one point or another. Especially kids who have developed a fascination with toy planes from an early age. Have your children expressed interest in becoming a pilot? At Monmouth Executive Airport, we have flight training for kids through our Young Aviators Club; it’s a great way for children to explore a new interest, gain invaluable skills, and potentially find a future career path! 

We’re passionate about flying and we love sharing that passion with our local community.  With the help of our top-rated flight school instructors, we created the Young Aviators Club to offer a free flying lesson to all children ages 8 – 17, followed by additional lessons and educational courses if your kids are interested. If this sounds like something your kids would enjoy then please get in touch or keep reading to learn more about the Young Aviators Club in NJ. 

History of the Young Aviators Club

Several years ago we formed a partnership with the Wall Township community in New Jersey, which is located just minutes away from Monmouth Executive Airport. In order to share our passion for flying, we offer one free flying lesson for all local kids between ages 8 and 17, accompanied and supervised by a fully-licensed flight instructor. 

A great alternative to traditional summer camp, our flight school gives children a chance to try something new and exciting. Young flyers can fulfill their dreams of soaring through the sky, and we also offer full scholarships to select children in order to complete their VFR rating. 

What to expect at The Young Aviators Club?

The first lesson starts outside the aircraft and takes place entirely on the ground. We walk our young flyers around the outside of the aircraft, teaching them the components and their functions during flight. We then tour the inside of the aircraft to do the same.

Once all safety procedures have been carried out, it’s time to take to the skies! Our fully-licensed flight instructors will guide our young learners up into the air, helping them pilot their very first flight. It’s a thrill they will never forget.

Capacity and Delays at New York Airports: The Role of Monmouth

7 September 2021   Monmouth Jet Center

Anyone who has traveled through New York airports has probably experienced capacity issues and delays. Large commercial airports, especially in New York, are notorious for overbooked flights, delays taking off due to lack of runway space, and other congestion issues that disrupt your travel plans and cause major frustrations. 

Many people have discovered the perks of using smaller airports like Monmouth Executive Airport. Located nearby in New Jersey, Monmouth Airport offers a convenient alternative to crowded, hectic New York airports like JFK and LGA, and it’s a short Uber ride away from New York City and surrounding areas. 

Capacity and delays at JFK and LGA

JFK and LGA are two of the busiest airports in the country and consistently rank among the airports with the highest numbers of delays. With domestic and international flights landing around the clock, chances are if you’ve ever flown to or from JFK or LGA, you’ve encountered delays. Larger passenger flights generally take priority over smaller, private planes or hired aircraft. So if you’re looking for alternatives, why not try a general aviation reliever airport like Monmouth?

Role of Monmouth as general aviation reliever airport

A general aviation reliever airport is designed to relieve congestion from major New York airports, which as already mentioned, are the busiest in the country. Monmouth is located nearby in New Jersey and can accommodate larger commercial aircraft as well as smaller personal aircraft, and flight traffic averages around 150 flights per day. We are 5 minutes from the Garden State Parkway (Exit 98), less than 10 minutes from popular Jersey Shore Points and approximately an hour drive from NY, Philadelphia, and Atlantic City. Not to mention, our helicopter service to NYC will get you there in 20 minutes.

With an Ideal airport location, full aviation services, and first-class amenities – there’s no better alternative.

Breakdown of hangar and property insurance

If you have your own personal aircraft, or if you own an aircraft hangar, you’ll need to invest in insurance – the same as you would for a car. Personal planes and aircraft hangars are very valuable assets and you want to protect them and keep them in top condition at all times. Having good hangar insurance is one way you can do that. Our team at Monmouth Executive Airport is happy to explain the importance of hangar insurance and property insurance within this article. Here are some of the basics:

  • Each aircraft owner and each hangar owner has specific needs, and insurance helps them meet their specific needs. This includes aspects like fueling, de-icing, parking, storage, maintenance, and other services provided in hangars. 
  • For airports like Monmouth, hangar and property insurance is essential when renting out hangars to third parties. Insurance acts as coverage for another person’s aircraft while they’re in the airport hangar, and helps protect you in case something happens.
  • You can customize your hangar insurance portfolio to include exactly what you need. Common types of insurance are: 
  • Hangar structure insurance: Hangars can easily be damaged by strong winds, heavy storms, and other weather occurrences. 
  • Business property insurance: This covers the equipment inside your hangar, like tools and any machinery. 
  • General liability insurance: This policy provides coverage if third-party injury or damage occurs while in your hangar. 
  • Auto liability insurance: This is important if you have a shuttle that drives people to and from your hangars, or two and from their aircraft upon take-off and landing. 
  • Pollution liability insurance: In the event of an accident, flammable liquids like fuel and other chemicals can leak into the surrounding ground and water. This policy covers costs associated with clean-up and any damage caused.

Invest in aircraft and hangar insurance

There are certain unavoidable liabilities you’ll encounter when you own an aircraft hanger, or when you’re working with hangars and aircrafts. Heavy machinery, combustible materials, and expensive equipment means that insurance is essential. If you’re unsure about which policies you should include in your hangar insurance portfolio, we recommend speaking with an experienced insurance company that works with hangar owners, aircraft owners, airport owners, and others in the aviation industry. 

Aircraft hangars are a big investment. Keep your property safe and mitigate any risks with property insurance, also learn more about potential liabilities that come with owning an aircraft hangar.

The guidelines to using a hangar

13 April 2021   Hangar Space

Whether you own your own aircraft or rent one from time to time, you’ll need access to an airplane hangar when it’s not in use. The type of hangar you use will depend on several factors, including which airport you fly into, what type of aircraft you have, and hangar availability at your destination. 

You may think that guidelines and regulations put in place by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) only apply to aircraft, but the FAA actually has official guidelines for hangars and hangar usage as well. In this article, we’ll discuss some frequently asked questions about using a hangar, as well as explain some regulations around hangar usage.

FAQ of usage of hangars at obligated airports:

What is an airport sponsor’s responsibility for hangar use?

Airports are required to ensure their hangars are used appropriately, and this includes:

  • Monitoring the use of all hangars to prevent any unapproved usage
  • Creating and maintaining a hangar leasing program, complete with written contract and any necessary permits
  • Managing hangar space so that it minimizes wait time for those on a waiting list (ideally airports won’t have a hangar waiting list)
  • Requiring non-aviation users who use an airport’s hangar to pay a fair market rental rate 

Why is the FAA issuing a separate policy statement on hangar use? 

The FAA stated that as a result of receiving many questions from airports and airport tenants, they wanted to issue an explicit policy statement on hangar use to avoid any unfair or discriminatory conditions developing at airports. 

Airport facilities application to the policy 

All airports and aircraft hangars – including custom hangars – that are designated for aeronautical use and approved by the FAA must comply with the latest FAA guidance. 

Does the policy apply to privately owned hangars on private property? 

FAA guidelines do not apply to privately owned hangars on private property. The guidelines only apply to airports and aircraft hangars that have been FAA-approved.

Available aircraft hangars at Monmouth Executive Airport in NJ

Many people prefer to use hangars at smaller executive airports like Monmouth Airport for a variety of reasons. Perhaps most importantly is the fact that there are rarely waiting lists at executive airports, while commercial airports often have long wait times for hangar availability. Monmouth Executive Airport also has on-site aircraft maintenance and custom hangar space, so your aircraft stays in top condition and ready to fly at a moment’s notice.
