Tips For Flying With Pets – Preparing Your Pets

5 July 2022   General

Your pet is an important part of your family, and it’s now becoming more common for people to fly with their pets. So if you’re planning your next family vacation, or you’re relocating to a new city, it’s important to prepare yourself and your pet for the journey. In this article we’ll discuss some of the challenges, the requirements, and preparations to help you get your pet ready for the big day. 

Is Flying Safe for Pets?

Flying on an airplane is largely safe for most pets. There are some restrictions for certain breeds of dogs due to respiratory issues, so contact your veterinarian to learn more about this. Thousands of dogs and cats fly safely both domestically and internationally every year, and most commercial airlines do everything they can to accommodate your pet and make their journey as comfortable as possible. 

Flying Privately with Pets. 

  • Pets under 150 pounds may occupy a passenger seat. Pets weighing over 150 pounds must remain on the floor. During taxi, takeoff, and landing, it’s important to make sure your pet is secured inside the cabin. Depending on the dog the noise and motion can be overwhelming for them. You can be prepared with dog ear muffs and asking your veterinarian for nausea medicine. 

Flying commercially with pets 

  • There are restrictions around which size pets are allowed in the cabin. As a general rule, your pet must fit in an airline-approved carrier that comfortably fits under the seat in front of you. If you have a larger pet, speak with your airline as they may require your pet to go into the cargo hold. Keep in mind this section is not regulated with oxygen, for some animals with respiratory issues this can be life threatening. Always consult with your veterinarian. 

What Kind of Paperwork Should You Have?

Each airline has its own requirements, even some private aircrafts will require you to have your pet’s health records in order to fly. You can get these records from your vet and they include things like proof of vaccination for rabies, general overall health records, and your vet must attest that your pet is fit to fly. 

If you’re planning to fly with your pet, we recommend speaking with your vet as soon as possible to ensure you get all the necessary documentation together in time. 

How To Prepare Your Pet for Travel

The easiest way to fly with your pet is to fly private or semi-private. While commercial airlines do accommodate pets, private and semi-private aircraft provide a much more comfortable experience for everyone. And it may not be as expensive as you think – contact Monmouth Jet Center to learn more about hiring a plane for your next trip.

Jet service and hangar space – rent or build?

7 December 2021   Hangar Space

If you’re in the market for aircraft hangar space then you have several options: renting, buying, or building. Your aircraft is a big investment and having a safe place to store it is essential. In this article, our NJ team at Monmouth Jet Center explores the various options available to you when it comes to acquiring hangar space. 

Investor owned or leased?

If you want to invest in your own aircraft hangar, you always have the option to lease it when you’re not using it. Many investors negotiate ground leases with local aircraft owners who need hangar space. And at smaller airports like Monmouth Jet Center, you’ll never have to put your name on a waiting list or wonder if there will be space for your aircraft. 

Advantages of owning a hangar

When you own a private hangar you can customize it to your exact specifications. You’ll never need to negotiate any hangar leases or worry about finding hangar space to rent, and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your aircraft is completely secure. Another advantage of owning a hangar is you always have the option to rent it out in the future, earning you extra income. 

The cost of building your own facility

Costs vary depending on your needs, but as a general rule, you can expect to spend $22 per square foot when building a custom aircraft hangar. It’s important to understand that when you build your own facility, you will technically own the hangar, but you’ll still be leasing the ground it’s built on. You’ll also be responsible for insurance costs, maintenance costs, repairs, and any upgrades you decide on. 

The benefits of leasing space

Leasing can be a convenient option if you aren’t ready for the responsibility of owning your own hangar. Each airport has its own terms and conditions with ground leases, and at Monmouth we do our best to accommodate your needs and your schedule. 

If you’d like to know more about renting or building custom hangar space, or if you have any questions about our airport, please contact our team at Monmouth Jet Center today. We look forward to hearing from you.
