What is a Dry Lease?

A dry lease is a type of aircraft lease where the lessee rents the aircraft without fuel or flight crew. In this arrangement, the lessee is responsible for providing fuel and arranging their own flight crew during their operations. Alternatively, they can seek the services of a reputable third-party management or aircraft services company.

When compared to commercial flights, the cost of dry leasing a private aircraft is often only slightly higher than first-class airfare on a per-person basis. This makes it an attractive option for individuals or organizations looking to experience the benefits of exclusive private travel without the substantial investment and commitment of owning their own plane.

How Much Does a Dry Lease Cost?

The cost to dry lease the aircraft is determined by these primary factors:

  • Time on the Aircraft:The duration of your lease is affected by your destination and the prevailing airstream conditions during that time of year. Variations in the airstream currents can impact the flight duration and the amount of fuel required for the journey.
  • Fuel Consumed: The cost of fuel is influenced by factors such as the number of passengers, the weight of baggage, and the distance to be traveled. 
  • Hangar Costs: Depending on your destination, there may be hangar fees associated with storing the aircraft. Each hangar has its own set of charges, which should be taken into account when calculating the overall cost of the dry lease.

Your flight crew will collaborate with you to determine the estimated costs in advance of your travel. They will provide you with a breakdown of the expected expenses based on the specific details of your flight. If any changes or modifications are made to your flight plans, your crew will inform you about any additional costs that may be incurred as a result.
