International Ferry Flight Cost Example

The 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.

Length of 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 than that for domestic ferry trips.

 I have compiled an example of a ferry flight from Kansas to Slovakia so that you can get a feel for how much your flight might cost*.
