How’d you like to rent a Cessna 182 for $110 per hour? Or a Cessna 172 for $67.80 per hour or a Cessna 150 for $51.76 per your? Oh, and those rates include fuel. Did that grab your attention?
Ohio reader Thomas Root recently sent me a flyer from Galion, Ohio’s Galion Air that promotes its aircraft rental.
I called member Glenn Diebler to confirm what I was seeing.
“Yes, those are the current rates,” Glenn noted. “And we are currently selling a share of Galion Air, Inc., for $4,000.”
There are no monthly dues or annual costs so you only pay when you fly.
Galion Air has the stated goal of, “creating the lowest possible cost for flying in safe and well-maintained aircraft.” The corporation has 35 shares total, with “four to five available for sale.”
Of the 30-31 current members, “only eight to 10 members currently fly and that’s why were trying to get the word out,” continued Glenn.
The 182 only logged about 50 hours in the last 12 months, while the 172 and 150 were flown about double that each.
Do you live in the area? Give Glenn a call at 419-569-9254 or check it out online at GalionAir.com.
