RATES (All rates are wet rates)
* Flight Instruction - $30-$60 per hour (Depending on the CFI)
DISCLAIMER: Zulu Aviation Corporation is NOT a flight school and we do NOT have any flight instructors on staff. Zulu Aviation Corporation has contracted with Pilot Rise, LLC to provide the necessary instruction to our clients in order to meet the minimum insurance requirements to be eligible to fly the Mooney M20F Executive (3535X). We bill our clients directly tor cover this cost and we bill at the same rate that Pilot Rise charges Zulu Aviation Services for the instruction. CFI hours are only billed to the client for their check ride and any dual instruction that is necessary in order to meet the minimum insurance requirements. A client is expected to schedule and pay a CFI of their choice directly if they wish to do any additional instruction in the aircraft once they have met our minimum insurance requirements.
* Mooney M20F Executive (3535X)
INTRODUCTORY RATE: $175 / Hobb hour for first 10 hours.
REGULAR RATE: $195 / Hobb hour
OVERNIGHT RATE: $195 / hour or $450 per day (whichever is greater)
We encourage overnight or extended trips and we try to encourage this by making the aircraft affordable. Accordingly, we do not charge a daily Hobb minimum for extended trips, but either the regular rate for the Hobb hour or a daily minimum rate. For example, it is approximately a 4 hour flight from Fort Worth Meacham Airport (KFTW) to Huntsville AL (KHSV). It would cost a pilot $1,560 for the 8 hour round trip. However, most flight schools charge a daily minimum Hobb rate of four hours, so if a pilot flew to Huntsville AL on Friday and returned Sunday, that pilot would pay the $1,560 for the Hobb hours + an additional $780 for the minimum rate that the aircraft was on the ramp for that Saturday. That would be a total rental cost of $2,340 for the three day trip. Ouch! Our minimum daily rate is $450 per day, so in this example, we would only charge the Hobb hours of $1,560, since the daily rate only comes out to $1,350 for the three days that the aircraft was checked out (partial days count as full days), THAT IS A SAVINGS OF 50%! In the same example, let's say a pilot wanted to rent the aircraft fly to KHSV for Thanksgiving, departing KFTW on Wednesday and returning on Sunday. In this scenario, the client would be charged a total of $2,250 for the 5 day rental ($450 x 5 days) instead of the $1,560 for the Hobb hours that the plane was flown.
* Cessna 172K (46550) - $145 / Hobb Hour
Our Cessna 172K is on a leaseback to Rich Aviaiton Services. All client's wishing to rent this aircraft must first be checked out and approved by a Rich Aviation Services CFI. The aircraft must be schedueld through Rich Aviation Services Flight Schedule Pro scheduling software and all charges for the rental of the aircraft must be paid directly to Rich Aviaiton Services.
