If you’re looking for hangar space in NJ, at Monmouth Executive Airport we cater to the needs of many different types of aircraft, and we have affordable availability as well as a low-traffic space. In addition, our hangar space is available now, so you won’t have to join a long waiting list while scrambling to find a place to temporarily store your aircraft until a spot opens up.

You may have noticed that private jets sometimes avoid flying over the ocean, choosing instead to follow routes along the coastline. This is partly due to a law put in place by the Federal Aviation Administration, which states that aircraft cannot fly more than 50 nautical miles away from land unless they’re outfitted with certain pieces of equipment, including a life raft and life jackets. For commercial aircraft this equipment is standard, but for private jets it can cause issues with capacity and also with the aesthetics of the aircraft. 

Due to other factors like air traffic, private jets often fly along the coastline to make the journey as easy as possible. Many pilots who fly their own aircraft prefer to fly up and down the coast, enjoying emptier skies and routes that aren’t so busy. The last thing you want is to have your trip delayed due to air traffic, or be unable to complete your journey because the skies are too busy.

At Monmouth Executive Airport we have custom hangar space in NJ and are able to accommodate a variety of private aircraft. Our aircraft hangars are ready now – there’s no long waiting list – and we’re conveniently located next to several major cities, as well as near the coastline.
