Monthly charge is £135 pcm and flying cost £85 wet per tach hour, Kirknewton has it’s own bowser and fuel is supplied at wholesale cost which means a good proportion of the hourly cost goes towards maintenance and upgrades so annual and 50 hour checks are usually fully funded, excess is retained in group funds.
Apart from the usual pilot maintenance there is a strict ‘no tinkering’ policy and maintenance performed by a professional organisation, currently ACS at Perth. Outstanding items are cleared and not left to build up.
