Freedom from the Hobbs-meter
SAVES you money.
The hourly rates for our aircraft
include fuel (wet) and oil, and
best of all they are billed as
tach time instead
of hobbs time.
In most planes, the hobbes clock
is started and stopped based on
an oil pressure switch, so it starts
when the engine starts, and stops
when the engine is shut-down. While
it's running, it just ticks off
a tenth of an hour every 6 minutes,
based on "regular wall clock
time". So a tenth of idling
on the ramp is the same as a tenth
at cruise. So you pay a lot to go
No Hassle with Daily Minimums
If you've ever refrained from
taking a week-long flying trip because
you wouldn't be able to cover the
rental hour minimums during that
week at another establishment, the
Penn Yan Flying Club is for you!
We have no daily minimums, so go
ahead and take that week-long trip!
Convenient Scheduling and Billing
Our airplanes are based on the
northwest side of the Penn Yan Airport.
You can schedule airplanes 24 hours
a day on our convenient,
password-protected reservation web
site. When you come to the airport
to fly, there's no need to bring
your checkbook --- we'll send you
a bill every month and charge your
credit card directly. And when you
buy fuel or oil at another airport,
just send in the receipt with your
monthly payment and we'll credit
your account at our current re-imbursement
