Can I rent your aircraft for trips?

Different than most flight schools, we encourage rental of our aircraft. For many pilots, aircraft ownership does not make financial sense and renting is a perfect solution for flying to your favorite destinations. We do not charge daily minimums and simply review any request for rentals and will let you know if we have any concerns. We continue to add great airplanes for taking trips like our Diamond DA-40 and more to come.

For example, John decides to rent our Diamond DA-40 for a Mackinac Island trip. He flies up to Mackinac Friday afternoon and spends the night. Saturday late afternoon he and his family take off and fly around the Northern Michigan coastlines for a beautiful sunset flight returning to the Island. Sunday they fly back to Crosswinds from their weekend adventure. We at Crosswinds STRONGLY encourage pilots to rent our planes and experience John’s adventure for themselves. We know how hard you worked for your pilot rating(s)… We want you to use it!

How are your aircraft equipped and maintained?

Our aircraft are new, perfectly maintained Cessna Skyhawk 172S and Diamond DA20 aircraft, all equipped with G1000 and G500 glass panels. While some people think glass panel avionics are complex, they’re actually much easier to fly than a traditional round gauge avionics. Your Primary Flight Display (PFD) has all the normal gauges, but they’re laid out in a way that’s more intuitive and easier to quickly interpret in a high workload environment. The Multi Function Display (MFD) also gives you necessary information at your fingertips during your flight, allowing the pilot to complete tasks quickly and efficiently.

Here at Crosswinds, we are big believers in the fact that distractions in the cockpit can be something in the chain of events to an accident. We fix everything in our airplanes whether it’s functional or cosmetic, required by the FAA or not. We treat all of the aircraft as if we’re flying our own families, so we make sure everything is fixed and the workload is reduced to a minimum for the pilots who fly our planes. You can feel confident knowing that when it’s time for your flight lesson or plane rental, the airplane will always be available and ready to go.
