We are so glad you asked! We want to educate, enable and empower you to make the best decision for you! For this reason, we make a great effort to provide transparency, communication and an easy process that best serves our fellow crew. Please check out what previous clients say about us at the link below!
A Commuter is defined as Flight Crew that have a permanent residence other than the crash pad and will stay at the crashpad for no more than 15 days per month. An example commuter would be a flight attendant based in Dallas (but living elsewhere) looking to spend their reserve days or nights before and after their trips at the crash pad.
A Full Timer is defined as anyone working in the airline industry that needs full-time access to the home for no more than 3 months max. An example would be a new-hire flight attendant or a new-hire pilot looking to find an apartment in Dallas and needing a place to stay in the meantime.
More info on this, as well as associated pricing, can be found at the following link! https://dallascrashpad.com/pricing/
We require a one-time $25 application fee and a deposit to reserve your spot. The deposit is held and returned to you when you vacate the crashpad, and have provided 30 days notice via our online notification form.
The deposit amount depends on what kind of stay you need! All of that pricing is broken down at our pricing pages:
Cloud #39 Female Only Crashpad:
Cloud #17 Male Only Crashpad House:

We accept several payment methods! Our free option is Venmo and cash or check by direct deposit! However, we also accept credit card and payments via Roof, our professional property management system!
We manage a female-only crashpad and a male-only crashpad. Approximate crashpad property locations can be viewed on the GoogleMap at the About Us page! Find that page at the following link: https://dallascrashpad.com/about-us/
Yes! We wrote a DFW Transportation Guide, including hacks to save money as well as pins for employee parking lots that even GoogleMaps do not have. Find that guide here: https://dallascrashpad.com/2019/05/24/commuters-guide-to-dfw/
Yes! The driveway accommodates 3 cars and there is also street parking available. Before your arrival at the pad, we will provide you with a parking map so you can know the best locations to park.
Check out our Guide to DFW for best routes and to learn some hacks to save money! Every bit helps!
Can I start out as a Full-Timer and then switch to Commuter the following month, once I get a grasp on commuting?
If you start as a temp full-timer but then realize you no longer need to use the crashpad for more than 15 days each month, just communicate that to us! We are happy to adjust your status to reflect what you need, and because full-time stays are limited to 3 months max, we actually prefer that you switch to Commuter so we can keep you indefinitely!
Security and safety at our properties are of utmost importance to us! Here are the following things we do to keep our clients safe!
