Make money renting your plane!
Exceptional hospitality can come through in a lot of ways, but it most definitely it starts with a clean and well-maintained aircraft. And while cleaning might not be the most fun part of renting your plane, it doesn’t have to be difficult! Here are a few tips and tricks to help you get started in an effective rental routine.
Focus on the Maintenance
First things first: Give extra attention to the maintenance of your aircraft! This would include routine maintenance and aircraft cleaning. If you offer your renters a wet rental, then make sure the tanks are topped off. And make it a point to keep the windshield and interior, your renters will be encouraged do the same.
Make room for your renters’ things
We certainly love our gadgets, but too much of a good thing may look like clutter to a visitor. In addition to keeping your aircraft clean, it’s important to keep neatly organized and tidy. Your renters may not want to reorganize your aircraft, removing items from previous renters. You can offer your renters a storage container for their personal effects in the luggage compartment where it can be easily organized and contents removed after each flight.
Pay attention to details
Once you’ve gotten your aircraft clean and ready for your next renter, check the details:
- Check all the fluids to ensure everything has been properly topped off
- Clean the windshield and dust on the avionics and equipment
- Wipe down all the surfaces of vacuum the floors and seats
- Check the emergency equipment and make sure everything is ready
- Complete your pre-flight and make sure the aircraft is ready to fly!
