Title: Commonality - Leasing Out
Post by: MidlandDeltic on January 10, 2011, 11:54:49 AM
A quick query.  If I lease out all of a fleet type, do I still have to pay commonality costs on that type?  The scenario - I am beginning to upgrade my fleet, and will have spare aircraft of a still in production type which is in demand which I own, as well as spare leased aircraft which I will redeploy or return.  I am therfore looking at options for disposal of the owned aircraft.  Leasing could be profitable, but only if I can dump the commonality costs - if not, I will sell.

Grateful for any thoughts.

Regards

MD

No. If you are not in possession of an airplane, you don't pay costs on it.

Planes that are leased out or for sale/lease are excluded from fleet commonality calculations and automated C/D checks are not performed.
