How Long Can A Private Jet Fly Without Re refueling?
How long can a private jet to fly without re-fuelling? This is one of the most common questions amongst private jet owners. It has also been asked by many first time private jet owners who are either concerned about their first flight or simply curious as to the answer. The answer is quite simple, they cannot. They have to re-fueel, refill and maintain their jet fuel in order to remain within the service regulations set out by the Federal Aviation Administration (or FAA).
Private jets cannot be operated if they do not have sufficient fuel on board. The aircraft cannot fly without it. This is absolutely necessary if the owner is aiming to travel anywhere within the greater United States or beyond. In order to operate a commercial jet you need a licence and it costs a lot of money to keep this licence up to date. To ensure that your private jet remains within regulation you need to make sure that you re-fuell all your fuel on a regular basis.
Re-fuelling is performed at standard intervals, usually once per week. There are two ways that a private jet owner can do this. They can either hire a company that specialises in this service or they can do it themselves. Hiring a company to perform this service is very expensive and many people opt for doing it themselves in order to save money. This is not a good idea however, and can result in the loss of one or more re-fuelling opportunities should there be a problem with the jet fuel supply.
One of the major advantages of hiring a company or even a single pilot to perform this service for you is that they have extensive experience in performing it. This is particularly important if you have gone on a number of flights using the private jet and know that you can get your own re-fuelling in a matter of hours. The company will also have experienced and trained pilots on board who can perform a re-fuelling without any problems. In the event of a problem they can easily help to solve the problem.
Another advantage of having the service performed for you is that you can avoid losing money by not having it done as you would have lost money by re-fuelling it yourself. If you had to perform the re-fuelling yourself then it could take quite a long time, and by then it may well be too late to go back and fly with your private jet company again. It also makes sense if you want to fly for a longer distance, say from a destination in Europe, to avoid the cost of a return flight.
In the event that the engine fails on the private jet you will have to get it repaired before you can fly again. This is something that you need to understand before you agree to do re-fuelling for your company’s private jet. They will want to know when you last made a flight with your company so that they know how long you should wait before performing the refuelling service. You are also going to have to agree with them on the cost of the service and whether or not you want to carry out the service yourself.
There are also some elements of the private jet service that you may not agree to. For example you may not agree to pay for the cost of a satellite navigation system to help you find your way around a foreign country. Your company may not want you to do re-fuelling at all, or they may want you to do it at a particular airport. The decision is yours to make but you do have to agree to it before you fly. Private jets can be difficult to locate at certain airports and using a navigation system can be invaluable for ensuring that your route gets you to your destination safely and quickly.
Before you sign up for the service of a private jet company, you should check out everything that they offer. Some companies charge a fee for their services, others are happy to work for a percentage of the total journey price. You will want to research the company in advance to see if there are any complaints filed against them. Companies that are well established and have a good reputation are likely to have little problem with such issues. If a company is reluctant to answer your questions or does not provide you with the answers that you are looking for, then it would be best to find another company to do your re-fuelling for you.
