  14. CANCELATIONS: Freedom Aviation works diligently to keep our aircraft rental rates as low as possible for our customers. An important part of that effort is maximizing aircraft utilization. Aircraft which are scheduled with no intent or firm plans to complete the flight, or rentals which are cancelled without giving us and others who may want to rent the aircraft adequate notification, negatively impact aircraft utilization, and drive costs up as well as deny other customers the opportunity to use the aircraft. We never want to adopt or maintain a policy which may result in a flight being conducted in unsafe conditions; however, cancellations not related to weather or aircraft availability may, at the sole discretion of Freedom Aviation, be subject to the following cancellation policies:ž

  • žCancellations made 4 or more hours in advance will not receive a penalty.
  • Cancellations made 4 or less hours before the scheduled time will be charged penalty equal to the time reserved for the aircraft, and in accordance with our rental minimums.
  • No shows will be charged a penalty equal to the time reserved for the aircraft, and in accordance with our rental minimums.
  • Cancellations must be made via our online scheduling system; the timestamp of which will be used as the recorded official cancellation time.
  • Cancellation penalties will be charged immediately to your account against block time, or to your credit card.
  • Abuse of the system resulting in frequent cancellations, even outside of the time range that would generate penalties, may disqualify the pilot from further scheduling privileges.
  • Freedom Aviation reserves the right to reschedule and rent out previously reserved aircraft if the previously reserved aircraft has not been checked out, and the customer has not notified Freedom Aviation of being late within 15 minutes of the scheduled reserved time. If Freedom Aviation does reschedule the aircraft, no cancellation fee will apply.

MINIMUM RENTAL TIME: Minimum rental times are published on the Freedom Aviation website https://freedomaviation.net/rental-ops/

PAYMENT TERMS: Renter agrees to pay all rentals upon the completion of the flight either by cash, check or credit card. A $75.00 fee will be assessed on all returned checks. Renter agrees to maintain a valid credit card number on file.

Renter authorizes Freedom Aviation, at its sole discretion, to charge this card for unpaid flight time or other expenses incurred and valid in this agreement. Renter acknowledges that he/she will not be able to check out an aircraft without a valid card on file. Renter agrees to periodic challenges to the credit card’s authorization status to verify card’s validity.
