The AEROBATIC COMPANY and FLIGHT SCHOOL is dedicated to providing you with reliable service in the most cost effective manner possible. With this in mind we have established our base rates based on our costs of operation. Recently the cost of fuel has risen dramatically and unpredictably making it impossible for us to reliably predict our costs of operation. In order to remain competitive we have decided to institute a fuel surcharge which will be added to our current base rate.
The fuel surcharge will be based on the fuel prices as stated here at the Reno Stead Airport (RTS). We know that the rising cost of fuel is impacting your business as well as ours and pledge to assist you in controlling costs any way we can.
Thank you for your understanding and support in these unstable times.
So, here it is:
Base fuel price = $ 4.50 per gallon.
Fuel surcharge calculated for base fuel price above $ 4.50 per gallon:
Pitts S2B: add 16 cents for every cent above $ 4.50.
8KCAB Super Decathlon: add 8 cents for every cent above $ 4.50.
As an example, is fuel price is $ 4.69, surcharge would be $ 1.52 for the 8KCAB Super Decathlon or $ 3.04 for the Pitts S2B.
