Flight Cost Example
cost of a Trans-Atlantic ferry flight depends on a few very important
variables. Mostly it depends on the ever changing fees and fuel costs
at the airports along the way.
the trip is also a factor. This depends greatly on the weather, winds
and of course, the capabilities of the aircraft. A trip from Europe to
the USA in a Cessna 172 or Piper Cherokee will take longer than the
same trip done in a Cirrus or a twin engine airplane like the Diamond
Twin-Star or Piper Seminole.
Furthermore, some higher performance single and multi engine aircraft
wont require a ferry tank.
There are many, many variables to consider when planning such a
flight, but with The Ferry Pilot.com you don't have to worry about
it because I will take care of all of these considerations for you!
Due to the complex nature and inherent danger involved with crossing
the Atlantic / Pacific oceans, the daily rate for the pilot is greater
for domestic ferry trips.
