Champ & L3 rental, Instruction, Recovering in Central Oh

Post by BILL SEE » Tue Feb 21, 2006 09:05

In central Ohio at Chapman Memorial Airfield (6CM), Centerburg Ohio, I am offering solo and dual rental in my TWO newly restored Champs. 65hp hand props and a New 7EC ACA 100hp electric start. ALL are LSA with radios and intercoms.

It requires renters Insurance and $65 per hour wett rental with flight instuction $25hr in the rental CHAMPS.
The ACA Rents for $85 an hour, C172 Rents for $95 an hour

$40 an hour dual in your airplane and $30 an hour for maintenance. I only charge by the hour for maintenance when I am workin, not when I am thinkin about workin!

I am also providing hanger rental, light maintenance and Aircraft recovering Services. I now have a waiting list on the aircraft recovering.

The airfield is 3200' of grass and is well suited to tailwheel airplanes. TRICYCLES are not recommended. All traffic patterns are to the north of the 9/27 runway and we use 122.9 for unicom.

AND we have a nice shop, facilities, bunkhouse at $30 per night for overight students.
Its great teaching folks off the grass to fly AERONCAS!

If you have any interest in our services, please email. Thanks, BILL SEE

We also do tailwheel dual insrtuction, sport pilot instruction, and solo rental at Marysville, Ohio, at Union County Airport. We use a Champ cloned to look like an L-16, with 85 hp, full electrical system, electric start, digital flip flop radio, and Mode C transponder. 23 gallon fuel tanks. You can take it virtually anywhere.

Airplane can be rented wet for $72/hour, unless fuel costs continue to rise, and ten it may be adjusted. Dual insrtuction is $35 per hour. The airplane rental is TACH time.

This is a bautifully and newly restored airplane, with, as of this date, about 27 hours on it since a new engine and restoration. The FBO is PrimeAERO, Inc.

Bill,

Great to see Aeronca's being used for instruction.

Hope you stay busy as can be and introduce lots of new pilots to these wonderful old airplanes!

Bill -

Why are your prices so low? You're still in the 1970s with $20 per hour dual and $20 per hour shop rates.

Good luck, though. Our Champ is busy at Marysville, but with the overhead we have operating from a county airport, large maint. hangar and 3 mechanics, full time instructor, line service people, etc. we can't match your rates.

In our first year of operation, we tried to match a county airport about 20 miles away that virtually gives fuel away, and learned that was silly. We raised our prices two years ago to be competitive with other airports like ours, and our bottom line improved. Of course, at this place that gives fuel away, that's all they have - a fuel pump and a run-down old building. No services, no nice lounge, no social environment.

I'll have to come see your L-3 when it's done.
