I don’t use the word “hate” lightly. But I hate Signature Flight Support. I really do. And I’m not the only one. Look at these comments.
We’re headed to Las Vegas tomorrow. The plane is in great shape, the weather is good, and I want to fly. But we’re going to drive. I simply cannot bring myself to give this bloodsucking “business” my money.
Signature is doing more to destroy general aviation than just about anything or anyone I can think of. They now charge $55 per night just to park the plane. Plus a $35 “handling charge”, though that can be waived by buying 20 gallons of fuel–at $4.00 per gallon! That’s a grand total of $180 (plus tips) just to leave the plane there for 48 hours.
Did I mention that their service stinks? It’s the worst. And when I get back to L.A. I’ll still need another 30 gallons to top off the plane. At $2.20 a gallon, that’s $66.00.
Grand total: $246.00 for a round trip to Vegas vs. $40 in fuel to drive.
Another thing I hate is starting a vacation by getting pissed off. Grrrr.
