Superior Flight School is excited to offer limited
opportunities for aircraft lease-back
What is a “Lease-Back”?
The term "lease-back" is more or less industry jargon and somewhat of a misnomer. With an
aircraft lease-back, Superior Flight School serves the role of asset management. The aircraft
is owned by the individual, while Superior Flight School is responsible for introducing
qualified customers as well as managing all financial transactions. A better term would be
"Dispatch Agreement", but hey we're not ones to go against the grain.
Similar Example – Beach Condo
Let's examine a similar situation with a beach condo. If you wanted to put that property to
work and turn it from a liability to an asset, pretty much your only legal option (assuming
that's your thing), is to put some renters in there when it's not being utilized. Now let's say
that you also have to balance work and family life as well, so it's not reasonable for you to
take care of all the hassles of management. That's when a property management firm comes into
the picture. They take care of finding customers, the financial transactions and making sure
the place is attractive. In the case of a lease-back, Superior Flight School is your management
firm and we take care of finding students/renters, collecting the money and making sure your
aircraft is maintained to the highest standards.
When does a lease-back make sense?
These are some of the more common reasons for leasing back an aircraft, however this list is
by no means inclusive. Everyone's needs are different and we can tailor a plan that can help
you realize your goals.
