Why buy when you can lease? There are several great reasons why someone would like to lease an aircraft rather than purchase. The cost to obtain the aircraft is low. For the V1.0 the “fly-off” cost is as little as $3,399.00 which is the first month’s minimum payment plus a $599.00 one-time acquisition fee. Another great reason is that there is no liability for new aircraft loans created on your balance sheet. Another is that you can use your capital to acquire other apricating capital assets such as new hangars. This is an Operational Lease available to businesses or institutional users.
