Rules

The planes you will be renting are owned by individuals and we expect all our customers to treat each plane with the same respect and care as if it were their own.  Planes will be clean and ready for you in the best condition possible.  Any variances should be noted prior to taking off.  A Performance Flight staff member will provide you with a checklist to make sure the plane is delivered to you as expected.  When you return we will conduct an inspection of the plane ensuring that it is returned in the condition it left.  Should you experience any problems with the plane you are required to notify Performance Flight immediately.  Emergency contact information will be provided at the time of rental.

All planes will be made available with the tanks filled to the tabs (unless you request otherwise) and oil topped off, also known as a “wet rental”.  A fuel card will be placed in the airplane for your use.
