NOTICE - NOTICE - NOTICE
We welcome the end of 2020 and the beginning of a new year. Unfortunately, with the new year, we have had a dramatic increase in our aircraft insurance premiums - approximately 50%. As an example, our insurance cost for our 1976 Piper Archer has gone from $3782 to $5673 for the renewal year (effective November 1st 2020). Consequently, we are forced to increase the rental rates of our aircraft to offset this price increase. The price changes became effective January 1st. We will be updating the information packet available on this site and also the aircraft rental prices on this site shortly.
We are saddened to announce the deletion of our Piper Arrow from the rental line, as a result of a mishap in July 2020.
We are happy to announce the addition of a Cessna 150 (in service now), a Cirrus SR-20 (in for Annual Inspection now) and coming soon a Decathlon.
NOTICE - Annual Aircraft Checkout
We require renter pilots to fly with a CCA instructor at least once per calendar year. You should select the most complex aircraft in which you are qualified - or use this opportunity to checkout in another make/model.
Aircraft Maintenance available at Chester County Aviation (CCA)! We are pleased to offer maintenance service for single and light twin engine aircraft, to include oil changes and annual inspections. We also offer dynamic prop balancing and Corrosion X treatments. Annual Inspection offerss a detailed briefing for you, the aircraft owner, of the discrepancies found during the inspection and an estimate of the cost to correct these discrepancies. We look forward to working with you for your aircraft maintenance needs. Call us at 610-384-9005.
Washington DC Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) -
As of Feb. 17, 2009, the rule converting the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area ADIZ into the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area SFRA became effective. All pilots who operate within 60 nm of the DCA VOR are required to receive special awareness training, available at www.FAASafety.gov (select Featured Courses, course catalog, Washington DC SFRA). Within the 30 nm SFRA, pilots must file a flight plan, establish two-way radio communications with air traffic control, and operate the aircraft transponder on the transponder code assigned by air traffic. While the special awareness training is a one-time requirement, FAA strongly recommends that pilots review the online course from time to time.
Because MQS is about 78 nm from the DCA VOR, we ask all student and renter pilots to complete the course and provide the flight school a copy of your certificate.
Chester County Aviation, located just west of Coatesville, is The Place for You to Learn to Fly in Southeastern Pennsylvania!
The insurance policy for Chester County Aviation rental aircraft has two very important restrictions.
First, the aircraft may not be operated on other than hard surface, paved runways, without a CCA CFI on board.
Second, the aircraft may not be operated outside the Continental United States. Besides the insurance restriction, the aircraft do not have the required FCC radio station license and most likely, you do not have the required FCC operator permit.
ATTENTION - - FLIGHT SCHOOL STUDENTS
Effective December 20, 2004, the US Transportation Security Administration implemented specific rules regarding flight training leading to an Airman Certificate or Additional Rating, for both US and foreign students/pilots.
- - For US Citizens:
Effective December 20, 2004, you must provide proof of US Citizenship prior to any flight training, defined as training which can be used toward a new certificate or rating. You will receive a logbook endorsement verifying your citizenship. Reference: 49 CFR 1552.3(i)(iv)
