Aircraft Leasing Options

Strategic Aviation offers customized leasing arrangements, with a creative approach to negotiating a wide variety of terms and services. We’ll work with you to help choose the aircraft and lease option that’s best for your needs and your budget.

Owning an aircraft is a significant investment. Considering the cost of purchase, maintenance and repair, insurance, fuel, and personnel expenses, many customers find that leasing an aircraft is a flexible and cost-effective alternative that eliminates the upfront investment and offers lower overall costs.

Strategic Offers a Variety of Solutions That Include:

  • Wet and Dry Leasing Solutions

  • Purchase and Lease Back Solutions

  • Aircraft Consulting and Assistance

Wet Leasing

A wet lease comes with ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance). We offer a monthly rate that includes a fixed number of flight hours, with a charge per additional flight hour. You’ll be responsible for fuel and expenses like airport fees and taxes—but Strategic Aviation will provide operational support, along with your aircraft’s crew, maintenance, and insurance.

These are the options that are covered in our Dedicated Air Transportation and Custom Air Logistics & Solutions

Dry Leasing

Dry leasing is when the lessor provides only the aircraft to the lessee, and the lessee is responsible for all maintenance and support costs. In this type of leasing arrangement, the lessee must also provide their own crew and insurance coverage. Dry leasing is typically used by clients who already have an established maintenance infrastructure in place and are looking for a cost-effective way to acquire additional aircraft.

Purchase and
Lease Back

Purchase and lease programs refer to a transaction in which an airline or aircraft owner purchases an aircraft, and then immediately leases it back to the original owner or another party. This type of transaction is typically used as a way for an airline or aircraft owner to raise cash for other investments or business needs, without having to sell the aircraft outright.

Benefits of Purchase and Lease Back

Access to Liquidity:

Off-Balance Sheet Financing:
The lease obligation can be kept off the owner's balance sheet, which can improve their financial ratios and credit standing.

Continued Use of the Aircraft:
The owner can continue to use the aircraft as it is leased back to them.

Preservation of Operational Benefits:

The owner can maintain the operational benefits of aircraft ownership.
