What exactly does aircraft management entail?
Aircraft management is the management of aircraft. This is a simplistic, obvious answer, but that’s basically it. Lots of things go into managing an aircraft, like crew selection, maintenance, paperwork and such – for a much more detailed explanation, please check out our blog post, “What Exactly Is Aircraft Management?”.
What kind of aircraft can you manage?
As of right now we manage jets that seat 9 or less passengers; we will be certified to handle high-capacity jets soon. We are experts in all models of Beech Kingair, Cessna Citation, Bombardier, and Gulfstream aircraft.
What kind of costs and expenses can be expected after enrolling my aircraft into CapJet’s aircraft management program?
We can keep you involved with the day-to-day operations of our management staff as much or as little as you’d like, and you can approve or deny trip requests as well. At the end of the day, it’s all up to you – our program can be tailored to meet your needs. Basic expenses include fuel, maintenance, and crew costs, and we can keep you updated with those plus aircraft utilization statistics, passenger summary reports, times and cycles reports, and all sorts of other information regarding your aircraft as much as you’d like.
What kind of certifications do I need to get before enrolling my aircraft into CapJet’s aircraft management program?
We’ll need to check your aircraft registration, airworthiness certificate, and pilot certifications. Our Director of Maintenance will check all maintenance due items and handle all aspects of required maintenance for you.
When can I access my aircraft while it is in the aircraft management program?
You’ll schedule your trips in the same manner you normally would. You can call us 24/7, use our mobile app or just simply send us an email to schedule a flight.
What is the timeframe needed to get my jet ready for flight?
We’ll need about a 2-hour notice to get you in the air! Once you make the phone call, the pilots will need to be called and dispatched to the aircraft and we will be in the air as soon as you arrive!
How do I enroll my aircraft into CapJet’s Charter Program?
It is a simple process – we’ll do an FAA-required “conformity inspection”, the pilots will need to go to training on our Air Carrier Certificate, and checkrides will need to be accomplished by our in-house Check Airman. Once those are completed, we are ready to make revenue on your aircraft!
