He is always willing to assist you at the hangar. A tip of $3.00-$5.00 is given to Daniel, or his son if he is assisting you, by most aviators since his ‘city’ pay is minimal and he has a large family and he assists in helping our pilots. If you would like for him to detail the exterior of your airplane we suggest that you bring both the soap, wax and towels. His rates are very reasonable, usually $25.00 – $50.00, with hand polishing, however ask the rate prior to having him begin the work.

CLUB PILOTOS HANGAR 

We can nearly always guarantee singles, and light twins for your visits during the year with the exception of ‘Club Piloto Reunions’.  As always, it is a ‘first come first serve’ basis for parking in the hangar.  At the ‘Reunions’ the wing length limitation for hangar parking is 38′.    One can be nearly certain that the first day of the event there will not be any space available, one day early usually works, two days for sure.

Parking in the hangar is at your own risk and the resort owners will not be responsible for any type of damage or loss.  For ‘Reunions’ at least 12 aircraft will be parked in the hangar and we suggest that owner’s assist in moving their airplane when it is inside the hangar.  If you have not signed a release form previously at a Hacienda event please do so in Reception.  For ‘Non-Reunion’ visits we can often accommodate Malibu and Mirage sized aircraft, however for the ‘Reunion’s’ they are not permitted in the hangar due to the larger parking requirement and lack of a tug.
