Frequently Asked Questions

Am I covered as a renter?

The FBO represents to the Renter that it has and will maintain at all times, public liability insurance on the aircraft in the amount of Two Million Dollars in the aggregate and Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars per passenger seat from an insurance carrier. Such coverage, which includes third party bodily injury and property damage liability, is extended to the Renter as part of the rental of the Aircraft. Additionally, the FBO maintains for its sole benefit and interest, all risk hull insurance of the Aircraft. The Renter is liable for the first $1,000 of damage in the case of an accident or incident for all aircraft, with the exception of the PA28R-200 and BE76, which is $2,500.

I am checked out in N747AP (C172SP) for VFR and IFR operations and would like to rent the Archer N9269Q (PA28-181) for VFR and IFR operations, do I have to complete a IFR and VFR checkout?

Since you completed a VFR/IFR checkout in the Skyhawk, you will only have to complete a VFR checkout and on the different systems and then you will be approved for IFR/VFR in the Archer.

Our Multi-Engine and our Garmin 1000 equipped aircraft will require an additional "repeat" IFR checkout to ensure compentancy flying IFR with the Garmin 1000 or flying single engine approaches in the Beechcraft Duchess.
