"On February 11th,
2014 Ben Zwebner “The Ferry Pilot.com” delivered my Grumman
AA-1B to me in Dansville, NY from Frederick ,MD. Since first contacting
Ben the entire experience was smooth and professional . He delivered as
promised and in the time frame we had discussed. I recommend

Toronto area. I was shopping for an airplane in the US and was
wondering how to get "The One" to my hometown. When I contacted
Theferrypilot.com, I was looking for a quote to get an idea about the
price. What pleasantly surprised me was a detailed email with a more
detailed quote on the same day!
experience of ferrying my new aircraft from Boulder City, Nevada to
Ontario, Canada was great. Ben is a very organized person, the kind of
person I'd like to do business with. He contacted me when promised,
kept me posted all the way through and was very professional throughout
the process. It was not an easy task to deliver an airplane on time
around New Year holidays and between two major snow storms. I was very
excited to watch the progress of my new "Bird" flying to it's new home
I will recommend
Theferrypilot.com to everyone including my friends and family and when
I need to ferry another airplane I will have no doubt in my mind who to
contact to. Thank you Ben!
from Colorado to California
|"Let it be known
that if you need a transport pilot your search is done:
Initially I had
planed on flying my “new” plane from Colorado to California
with a CFI for some transitional training; however, the timing of the
closing on our U206 during the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas
resulted in multiple schedule conflicts which precluded me from being
able to fly my plane home with my chosen CFI or for that matter being
able to get the days off needed to do that. I started searching for an
alternate transport pilot and discovered The Ferry Pilot.com.
I contacted Ben. He
was professional, organized, kept in contact throughout the process.
His fees were reasonable and he was able to jump right on the problem
and delivered the plane right after Christmas. Being able to follow the
flight by GPS and facebook postings was genius! In person Ben is
pleasant and outgoing and in no time it felt as though we had been long
lost friends. We went up together and did some pattern work before it
got dark so I could get a taste of my “new” 206. He was
great to fly with being patient with my unfamiliarity with the
platform. In short I would not hesitate to use his service again."

never had met Ben before I decided to hire him and The Ferry Pilot.com.
When it was all done I felt that I had made a new friend. We had some
weather issues, a route change and still came in below the cost
estimate. Every evening Ben kept me up to date on what happened that
day and I enjoyed the live flight tracking on line. I would definitely
would use Ben and The Ferry Pilot.com again!"

can think of one word to describe my dealings with TheFerryPilot.com
this year; Outstanding!
Ben Zwebner has attended to every aspect of the ferrying and servicing
of my plane with a level of professionalism that, quite frankly, puts
others to shame. What an owner requires when asking someone to fly his
plane, is for someone who treats the plane as if it's his own. Well,
Ben goes much further than that. So much further in fact that with
myself, my family, and my company, Ben has earned for himself a
position of trust. You cannot ask for more than that. On top of his
integrity, you get Bens experience, qualifications, incredible
technique, and along with all that, he maintains an eye on safety. At
all times he keeps close contact with you, so that you know exactly
whats happening, and he remains cheerful and professional at all times.
I would have no hesitation in using Ben again, and recommending
to do so. If you want the best...here he is. Thanks Ben...great job!"

"When the first
ferry pilot I hired to accompany me on the flight from Italy to Florida
BAILED on me just a couple of days before the planned departure.
Leaving me scrambling, Ben jumped in. Ben quickly got things going and
was quick to respond to all emails, making the coordination go
smoothly. The flights all went as planned except for a weather delay
(not something unexpected on this type of flight) which Ben handled
without a fuss. In short, Ben did what he said he was going to do- not
always a given in today's world. Great job, Ben."

"I sent Ben a
request for a quote late at night. By the time I woke up the
next morning, Ben had sent a very detailed quote on exactly what to
expect. Not only did he give a well researched quote, his prices were
very affordable. I accepted Ben's offer. The flight was as planned. I
found Ben to be honest, knowledgeable, and professional. His
communications are excellent, prices fair, and service outstanding.
What else could you ask for?"

Grimsby’s 2800ft runway was challenging.
The winds had picked up and approach speeds near 87 knots were showing

professionalism and talked
Grimsby with the same number of airplane parts that we started out with
and all still fitted together.

knowledge in charting a safe course and executing it to perfection over
a tricky and potentially dangerous route. Our final course ended up

I had many “firsts” on this flight including flying
oxygen for hours at a time, at heights I had never seen in a private
