Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the advantages of flying private versus flying commercial?
There are a multitude of reasons for private flying, but the biggest and most obvious is: TIME. When you need to get there fast, don't risk losing that once-in-a-lifetime business deal? Trust all your travel needs to the professionals at JetLease!
2. Lease vs Purchase
Should I lease or purchase? It depends the individual, finances, and aviation history. For a first-time client who is looking to acquire an aircraft but isn't sure what route to go, a 12-month lease would be a great option. You can test the waters before taking the big plunge!
3. When is chartering no longer economical and a lease is more viable?
If you are chartering once a week or more, it is time to lease an aircraft. With leasing rates starting at $18,000 a month, those $20,000 trips no longer look so good. There is an aircraft and a lease to meet everyone's needs.
4. I am financially upside in my aircraft, but I cannot afford to sell it. What do I do?
We here this often from aircraft owners. There are two options. One, we can lease the aircraft out or place it on a charter certificate, generating revenue and possibly making the owner a profit. Two, JetLease Capital offers the best rates in the industry. We can look into refinancing to get the owner a better rate and long-term plan.
