To help keep expenses and travel time down, we try to hire a ferry pilot reasonably close to the point of origin or the destination, or at least along the flight path. For example, we wouldn't normally hire a pilot from California to deliver a plane from Boston to Miami.





Lined-out flights indicate we've already found a pilot.
I post most, but not all flights. Sometimes, I know exactly who to call to handle the job. But, if I can't get the trip covered quickly, I will post it here. If you have time-off coming up, and can handle a flight, please give me a call.

07/21/21 Comanche 250 Mount Washington, New Hampshire (HIE) Fairfield, Illinois (FWC) Map COMPLETED
Thank you to all the pilots who responded. I was able to, with the help of a Vermont contact, hookup with a flight instructor who could get these folks home to Illinois.
I received a call from the owner of a Comanche 250 who is stranded in Mount Washington, New Hampshire with his family. He is not qualified to fly the plane, and the pilot who was supposed to fly he and his family home to Illinois is suddenly not available. The closest commercial airport with service is Manchester, New Hampshire 90 miles away, and almost the same distance East in Maine is Portland, Maine. This looks like it is going to involve some logistics, but the guy is in a spot. If you have a solution, can do the trip, or know someone with Comanche experience that can do it, please call me right away. I'll be up very late. Ron

How This Works

I am acting as an agent in this transaction, placing you in touch with a client needing an airplane ferried. I am paid by the client, generally $125 for single engine or light twin in the lower 48 states. Finding pilots for over-water or foreign trips is more, or if you require a CFI to accompany you, or an A&P mechanic to inspect the plane before ferrying it. Whatever arrangement you make with the client is between the two of you, and you agree that I am not responsible in anyway for the aircraft or the transaction. Be sure that I have a copy of your flight resume', so that I can provide information about you to the client and the insurance company covering the flight. You fly under the owner's policy.

Pay cuts, sometimes the result of downgrades in rank or shortened workweeks, are occurring more frequently than at any time since the Great Depression.

It is the responsibility of the client to approve the pilot as qualified to fly the plane and make the deal, and to provide insurance coverage. It is your responsibility to deliver the plane and be paid directly by the client. You are not a Kamakazee, and you should expect the plane to be in airworthy condition. Out-of-Annual aircraft, with a ferry permit, are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Call me to move your plane quickly.Generally, our veteran pilots charge $250 to $350 a day for light aircraft in the lower 48 states, sometimes more, sometimes less, plus all the expenses of the trip, including fuel, meals, motels, charts, and needed ground transportation. Twin-engine and more complex aircraft generally command higher fees. Time is generally computed from the time you leave home, until you arrive back home. Clients need to get you to an airport for the trip home, and often tip for a job well done.

Clients sometimes ask us for pilots with CFI and CFI II experience, and they want to ride along to log required insurance time. Some ferry pilots charge extra for that service, others do not.

Some planes cruise at faster speeds and take more fuel, but use less motel, meals, and pilot time. Often, the plane is full of fuel at the beginning of the trip, courtesy of the seller, saving the buyer some cost, and pilots tned to fly longer into the evening during the Summer months, covering more distance per-day. Winter trips, on the other hand, tend to take longer and are more expensive. Also, VFR flights often require the purchase of charts, where IFR-equipped planes often have modern GPS equipment, saving that expense. If charts are necessary, we need to pass that expense on to the client, and quote "so much a day for the pilot, plus fuel and charts"... And, again, we remind the client of the custom to "tip the pilot" for good service. Some clients do, others don't.

All parties, including pilot, aircraft owner, and anyone else involved, agree that I am simply providing contact with pilots willing to ferry aircraft, do not warranty the qualifications or abilities of pilots presented, and am held harmless from all subsequent actions.
