We are seeking additional aircraft to add to the club via lease. When an aircraft is leased to the club it can reduce expenses for the aircraft owner since the club would cover the cost of the hangar, insurance, some of the maintenance costs, plus an annual lease and hourly rate based on flight time.
You can learn more on our Leaseback page and please spread the word to aircraft owners you know!
