How It Works

Step 1 Aircraft Owners Submit Maintenance Request: The most common request is for smaller GA aircraft. These request are displayed in the Grease Pilot Mechanic Portal. Jobs vary in scope, and can be anything from an oil change to engine change. If mechanics want to perform the job they simply contact the aircraft owner through the Grease Pilot Mechanic Portal.

Step 2 Mechanic Works Directly With Aircraft Owner: This allows the mechanic to charge whatever they want, In addition, it allows the mechanic complete control over the job. Typical rates mechanics can charge range from 75.00 – 200.00 dollars per hour. 

Step 3 Mechanic Competes Work: Work is completed then aircraft owner pays the mechanic directly. TIP: Do a good job to retain aircraft owner as recurring customer.
