Pretty confident that I am not qualified to argue with the Mentors, god knows I wish I could get thier assistance when I push the button.
In this case, I have no intention of buying the aircraft - I plan to outgrow them. so I will want to actually payout the lease and get bigger aircraft as time moves on. If the aircraft are still here in 15 years, they will be dirt cheap, and since they are small aircraft, outside of the D Checks, the money is not a big deal to ride the leases out.
Currently, running 8 EMB 110C's, and 4 Fokker 28/3000's, not sure I have the seats to cover overheads, but I do have some cash in the bank and going to see what happens next.
