  • The example illustrated is based on a 5000 hrs airframe lease agreed at a utilisation rate of 1000 hrs per year. 
  • The Lycoming TBO's are used as the basis for the powerplant lease. 
  • The engine replacement fund is a sinking fund designed to provide the downpayment for the first and second engine changes over the life of the airframe lease, and forms the third element of the hourly rate. 
  • Please note that changes to annual utilisation, finance charges, downpayment and guaranteed residual rates will materially alter the hourly charge.
