C-172SP (G1000) Ferry Flight


Recommended Posts

I know this is a helicopter forum, but my intent is to offer this to any dual-rated pilots looking to build cross-country and IFR time...

 

I am ferrying a freshly overhauled C-172SP with G1000 avionics from Los Angeles, CA to Baltimore, MD. I am not an airplane commercial pilot, but I do have private privileges with an instrument rating. If you are interested in going, you must at least have private privileges in ASEL. Ideally, one of us will be under the hood through the entire flight. Both of us will be legal to log PIC time as long as one is the operational safety pilot. One of the two will be legal to log simulated instrument time (or actual instrument time, should we encounter some). The estimated flight time is between 18 and 20 hours.

 

My operational expenses are $200/hour. I am looking to split this 50/50 with the other pilot.

 

The tentative plan is to depart Los Angeles on Fri. Jan. 07 and fly the well-known Robinson helicopter route (via I-10) to El Paso, TX. On Sat. Jan. 08 we will depart El Paso and fly IFR to St. Louis, MO. On Sun. Jan. 09 we will depart St. Louis and fly IFR to Baltimore, MD.

 

If anyone is interested, please contact me as soon as possible. Thanks.

200/hr for a c172 seems a bit pricey... That is more than an R22. Shouldn't fixed wing be cheaper?

 

It probably should be...unfortunately since the number of hours that will be put on the ship is low, fixed costs (e.g. insurance) are high. Also, it's partially because of the G1000 avionics.

I'm trying to figure out why I'd have to pay to help you out? I have the time and ability to do it but not the money.

 

To be fair...we'd both be paying.

 

FAR 61.113[c] states "A private pilot may not pay less than the pro rata share of the operating expenses of a flight with passengers, provided the expenses involve only fuel, oil, airport expenditures, or rental fees."

That's why I'm a Commercial pilot :)
