OpenAirplane Reaches More Than 10,000 Pilots

OpenAirplane Reaches More Than 10,000 PilotsSeptember 24, 2015 - This week OpenAirplane, the company that rents out its fleet of over 320 aircraft to pilots, flight schools, and FBOs, surpassed the milestone of having more than 10,000 pilots signed up for its service. “We’re thrilled to see our community of pilots grow,” said Rod Rakic, one of OpenAirplane’s co-founders. The company has 90 locations across the U.S., including in Hawaii and Alaska.

To participate in OpenAirplane’s services, pilots must complete a checkout individualized to the make and model of aircraft they fly most, eliminating the need to get a checkout at every location. “More pilots are stepping up to get more value out of flying,” Rakic said. “Together, we can make private aviation more valuable, safer, and more fun for everyone.” For more information on how to use OpenAirplane’s services, visit www.OpenAirplane.com.
