Business Aviation- Operating Costs

Buying a private airplane is not a one-time cost. Owners and operators must understand the ongoing operating costs projected over the course of aircraft ownership. These are associated with keeping the aircraft running in optimal condition, and include fixed costs – i.e. hangar rental, crew salaries, tax, etc. – or variable costs like fuel, maintenance and ramp fees.

It’s important that prospective and current business aircraft owners understand these to ensure there are no nasty surprises that push the aircraft over budget.
