    What's the going rate to Ferry an airplane these days?

    A guy asked me if I would ferry a 65hp Champ from South Bend, IN to Orlando, FL.. I've ferried for friends before and went as an Instructor for new owners, but it's been awhile.. anybody got recent experience ??

    I would ferry it myself. With such a little Bomber you'll have a lott of fun and adventures. I flew 2008 through Canada with my little Cub. It was an adventure of a life

    $500 a day plus expenses is pretty standard at least with individuals I know.

    After ferrying an Ag Cat from Georgia to Texas I got an Oregon Aero seat cushion to carry with me. Anyone who knows me knows I don't have much padding back there and after that trip my backside was numb.

    I always insist on specific insurance coverage. It takes about three telephone calls, but on the front page I get them to state "Bob Turner is additional insured for a flight between Sebring, Florida and San Diego, California." They usually also stick in a waiver of subrogation.

    I was 78 the last time I asked for such an endorsement. They turned me down due to age. I don't fly stuff I cannot afford to buy, unless I have full coverage.

    My personal insurance covers me in anything I fly up to $52K, with full liability. The instant it looks like a commercial operation, my insurance becomes invalid.

    Be careful out there.

    If anyone needs a ferry pilot in the future, I hired Sarah Rovner to ferry my PA-18 from upstate New York to Tennessee after I purchased it. The experience was totally professional and perfect.
