Customer Review of US Aircraft Finance

US Aircraft Finance – Just wanted you to know I am using this plane all the time, and it’s become an incredible asset. I just had a conversation yesterday with a client in Social, where my competitor was charging $5k in “training” for 1 day on a product. I asked why it was so much and they claimed travel, hotel, etc etc. I replied “heck I can be there tomorrow in 2 hrs, train you for the day, and only bill you for half that.” He was blown away. ……..I know of no other way to offer such service to clients – and I couldn’t have done it without your financing.

Sincerely,

AB

Pups First Flight with US Aircraft Finance

Here at US Aircraft Finance, we not only support every pilot’s dream to fly, but also the opportunity to share that dream with their best friends.

Meet Cooper Hooper, a rescue pup who has come to love airborne family time! Flight-ready, he is thrilled to be accompanying his owner and personal pilot, Phil, on this trip.

“Enjoy this photo since your faith helped make it possible.” (Phil, current US Aircraft Finance and Insurance Customer)

While considering the safety and comfort of each passenger is inherent in successful travel, following are a few key points to note with respect to our pets:

  • If using a kennel, accustom your pet pre-flight and make sure that the door latches securely.
  • Gauge food and water needs on flight length and previous experiences.
  • Make sure tags show proper identification (including your travel contact information).
  • And speak with your vet regarding any specific care plans, particularly sedation.

Hi USAF,

I’ve thought about your company many times over the last two years and I’d like to tell you why…..  I’ll be very honest admitting that US Aircraft Finance were the only one that would finance the Malibu for my co-owner and I. I was very frightened the financing wouldn’t come to fruition and the dream of owning a Malibu would never happen. You were willing to offer the financing and the dream of owning a Malibu did came true.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for having faith in us.  I’ve flown the Malibu over 300 hours since we acquired her and it’s a dream every single time she takes flights.

Yesterday I landed at home in KLHM in the new Bonanza!

The entire flight included travel over the bulk of the USA, covering over 2,000nm, taking ~ 15hrs.

My wife is super excited and impressed. My youngest son actually cried a bit with excitement over our new ability to see distant family.

None of this would have been possible without your excellent service and attention to detail on this sale. Thank you all SO MUCH for closing this deal so quickly on Thursday, and for all the prep work in advance!

This machine is truly a miracle to me, and a huge blessing for my family and friends. I can’t say thanks enough for your efforts!!!

Is 3 times a Charm- Pilots Bill of Rights 2

For the third time in six months, the U.S. Senate passed the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 (PBOR 2) yesterday.

PBOR 2 was included this time in the National Defense Authorization Act, which cleared the Senate by an 85-13 vote, but also faces a veto threat from President Obama because of restrictions to closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay. The Senate version of the defense authorization must next be reconciled with the House-passed version.

PBOR 2, which includes third-class medical reform and strengthens legal protections for pilots, first was cleared by the Senate in December as a standalone bill and then was included in comprehensive FAA reauthorization legislation that passed the Senate in April 2016. PBOR 2 measures also were included in the House version of FAA reauthorization, but the fate of that bill remains uncertain. The Senate has passed these reforms three times already, and the Pilots Bill of Rights 2 has 178 bipartisan co-sponsors in the House. It’s time for the House to take action and pass Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 so we can get much needed medical reforms.

 

What’s your Favorite- TTX or Cirrus?

I often get asked the question, “Which plane is your favorite? The TTx or the Cirrus?”  There are unique aspects to each airplane. Although they might fulfill similar missions, they each have their own benefits which will draw people to one or the other depending on their preferences.

Both airplanes are constructed primarily of composite materials. This allows for advanced aircraft design and laminar flow wings.

For all practical purposes, these engines are the same.  Each uses different methods of controlling the manifold pressure/RPM combination, but each has relatively similar performance. In the past, Cirrus used a turbo-normalizing system (SR22TN), but later switched to the Continental factory twin-turbocharger option similar to what Columbia/Cessna had been using.

In general, the TTx is approximately 5 to 15 knots faster than the SR22T. This varies based on operating parameters and installed equipment. For instance, FIKI, EVS, A/C on/off, etc. The overall economy (nautical miles per gallon) is going to be very close on both airplanes. So what’s your favorite?

I am still undecided but  invite you all to email me directly at: alex@usaircraft finance. com  to share your thoughts. We offer financing and insurance for both aircrafts and would like to hear what you have to say. Be well and fly safe!

 

 

TBO and Engine Overhauls-Understanding them made easy

There comes a time in the life of every piston aircraft when its engines must be overhauled. There’s no exception to this rule. Based on their TBO (Time Between Overhaul) ratings, every piston engine must be removed, taken apart, checked, serviced, have components repaired or replaced as needed, and then be reassembled and reinstalled by trained professionals in order to remain in service.

Piston engine TBO is predominantly predetermined by their manufacturers, based on a combination of their hours of service and their age. Each engine manufacturer has their own specific requirements, as far as what has to be done to an engine, in order to qualify as an engine overhaul.  Whatever is specified by engine OEMs such as Teledyne Continental Motors and Lycoming, the bottom line is that a piston engine will be removed from the aircraft and shipped to an engine facility. Once there, the engine will be completely disassembled and assessed for its overall condition. Different components of the engine will also be checked to see whether they meet new tolerance standards, serviceable tolerance standards, or are unserviceable.”
