We allow most of our aircraft to be rented out to the public. We do have several procedures that are required to rent our airplanes.
Before Renting one of our aircraft for personal use, we require our renters to complete a rental checkout form. This can be picked up in person at Aloft Aviation.
When doing a Checkout we will look at your logbook to see your Flight Experience, Recency, and Currency.
