What Is Included In Our Aircraft Ferry Service Cost Proposals:

Aircraft Ferry Service Cost Proposals: International Ferry Flights Always Includes, Airfare to Pickup Point and Return, Aircraft Fuel & Oil, Test Flight Time "Used Aircraft" or Engine Break-In Time for "New Aircraft", Flight Crew Fees And Per-Diem, Flight Crew Transportation On Ground, FAA Approved Long Range Tanking (If Required or Requested), Digital Enroute Charts & Approach Plates, Long Range Navigation Aid (Portable GPS), Sat Phone Charges For Oceanic ATC Communications Up To 60 Minutes, Any Required Temporary H. F.

Aircraft Registration and De-Registration service "Also Know As Aircraft Bailment Or Trustee Services" is always included in our international aircraft ferry cost proposals when required or requested.

There have been many times the purchaser of a U.S. (N) registered aircraft and was not eligible to register the aircraft with the FAA and the seller would not hold the registration for delivery and ended up de-registering the aircraft at the time of sale. Do not let the seller deregister the aircraft as it can be a time consuming hassle to get things reversed and get a valid aircraft registration for the ferry flight. Before you purchase a (N) registered aircraft please read the FAA's Information on U.S. (N) Registration Eligibility to Register an Aircraft in the United States. If you are not eligible for (N) registration we will hold the Aircraft Title/Registration in Bailment for purposes of delivery for you. Before you select a ferry company make sure they offer this service if the aircraft is not properly registered and de-registered this can cause a lot of hassle with the export process, obtaining enroute service and permissions, and with your local Aviation Authority Sample Aircraft Deregisteration Letter From FAA to Local Authorities.

What May Not Be Included, Annual Inspections, 100 Hour Inspections, Phase Inspections, Mechanical Repairs, Compliance of Discrepancies on Inspections, In-flight Oil Replenishing System, or The Export Certificate Of Airworthiness For The Country Of Destination. We try to include everything including estimates for third party services such as the The Export Certificate Of Airworthiness so if something is noted in the quotation as not included or awaiting cost from third party it means there is some variable that we cannot estimate until we have the actual numbers or aircraft in our possession.

All Inclusive Aircraft Ferry Service Cost Proposals: Our All Inclusive Flat Rate Service Never Include, Hull Insurance (Unless Requested), Import Documents, Arrival Fee's & Taxes, Mechanical Repairs, In-flight Oil Replenishing System, Ferry Tank Removal Costs, If there is a mechanical issue and parts are needed we have wholesale accounts with many of the suppliers to obtain the parts fast and at a discount.

Export Certificate Of Airworthiness: International ferry flights can work with the buyer or seller and help arrange and complete the The Export Certificate Of Airworthiness For The Destination Country. Export Certificate Of Airworthiness costs will vary from aircraft to aircraft and the Destination Country depending on mechanical condition, paperwork, compliance requirements required by the bilateral agreements and destination's country special requirements. Please see the FAA Bilateral Agreements for more information on Bilateral Agreements for your destination country. Buyer and Seller please see the FAA's Special Requirements of Importing Countries when buying or selling an aircraft from the united states.


Ferry Tanks / Ferry Fuel Systems,

Every ferry tank installed and used by International Ferry Flights are 100% FAA approved.

IFF does not cut costs when installing ferry fuel systems in to your aircraft. Cutting costs on ferry fuel systems by installing non aircraft grade or mill spec parts compromises pilot safety and places your aircraft investment at an unnecessary risk for loss. IFF's ferry fuel systems are engineered and installed using new aircraft grade hardware and parts such as hoses, fittings, fasteners, valves, fuel sight gauge, etc. by Certified FAA Airframe and Power Plant Mechanics. IFF's ferry fuel systems are 100% compliant and generally exceed all applicable FAA safety regulations. Ferry Fuel Systems will have all the proper FAA paperwork and over gross authority from the aircraft certification office. If your aircraft is tanked by another ferry tank installer the pilot will inspect the system via our internal saftey check list to make sure ferry fuel system is safe and compliant with FAA regulations prior to any flight.

Aircraft with a standard range of 750 or more nautical miles can cross the North Atlantic without any auxiliary tanking. Ferry Flights to certain parts of the world such as "Africa" "Hawaii" "Japan" "Australia" "South America" "India" or other international ferry routes where Avgas (100LL) is in short supply or completely unavailable for vast distances auxiliary tanking will be required. If your aircraft requires or you elect to install auxiliary tanking also known as "ferry tanks" we have facilities available on the east and west coast of the United States to handle all auxiliary ferry tanking needs.

Some flights or aircraft where auxiliary tanking may not be required for the route you may choose to add a ferry fuel system to save time, fuel costs, landing fees, and ground handling fees.

Ferry tanking an aircraft for long range flight will not damage the airplane, neither will it cause any depreciation of your airplanes value.

Most "New and Common" aircraft can be fitted with a ferry fuel system on the east coast for trans-atlantic ferry missions, Older aircraft, aircraft not listed above, or aircraft being ferried across the Pacific Ocean will need to be tanked at our West Coast Facility in Mulino,Oregon (4S9).

Tanking times will vary most "New" and "Common" aircraft the tanking is completed in about 3-5 days on the east coast for Trans-Atlantic ferry flights and 14-21 days for Trans-Pacific ferry flights. Most older aircraft and aircraft that we do not have the engineering data for may require 4-6 weeks for tanking. All tanking is subject to FAA/Engineering delays. Sorry, IFF will not install ferry fuel systems for pilots or owners that are not employees or contractors of International Ferry Flights.

Trans-Pacific In-flight Oil Replenishing Systems, For the safety of flight all aircraft that delivery is not taken at the factory may have a In-flight Oil Replenishing System Installed. If it is determined that a In-flight Oil Replenishing System is required IFF will provide you with an estimated cost of the install.

2011 FAA Fuel Totalizer Requirement for Trans-Pacific Only, If your aircraft is not equipped with a fuel totalizer instrument one will be installed at an additional cost. IFF will provide you with an estimated cost of instrument and installation if aircraft is not already equipped or repair costs if inop.

All U.S. Domestic Ferry Flights Are Billed a Flat Rate Pilot Fee + Actual Expenses "Transportation On Ground And Airline, Aircraft Fuel & Oil, Actual Hotel Costs, Meals & Incidentals, Etc." Meals & Incidentals are billed at the standard Domestic GSA M&IE rates where the day is finished, Recipes for M&IE's will not be provided.

IFF Inc's U.S. Domestic Flat Pricing Rate System: "Excludes Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, And Northern Mariana Islands,"

Our Domestic Flat Rate Ferry Pilot Labor Rates are for the lower 48 only and are based upon $250-$350 USD a day "Single Engine" or $350-$450 USD a day "Multi-Engine/Turbo Prop" + Expenses. 1 Day = 8 Hours Flight Time or Portion of and $200.00 Per Day Travel/Positioning Costs.

Domestic Ferry Flight Example: How to Figure Out IFF's Flat Rate Pilot Labor On Lower 48 Domestic Flights.

An east coast to west coast Single Engine Ferry Flight planned using $250 day of a basic model aircraft in Jeppesen FliteStar of the type to be ferried using Airways at 65% power setting with "0" wind gives you 22 hours flight time. Take 22 Hours and divide 22 Hours by 8 that is 2.75 Days. Any partial days are rounded to a full day add. 1 Day travel to east coast and 1 day travel to home base KPDX. This sample domestic flight would be $1150.00 Flat Rate Pilot Labor + Actual Expenses regardless if it takes 2 day, 5 day's, 18 hours or 45 hours of actual flight time.
