The leaseback calculator below projects what it takes for you to make money, breakeven–or worst case scenario–defray the cost of airplane ownership by putting your airplane to work. If you are not interested in a leaseback you can grab a stiff drink and plug your numbers into the top section to determine aircraft ownership and operating costs.
My airplane went from assembly line to leaseback in 1979 as a way for the owner to defray the cost of ownership. Could it work for you? Explore your own numbers with the this calculator but watch the video at the bottom first to understand the whats and whys.
Use a tablet screen or larger. Edit the non-grayed items (top) and the green (below).
If you have leaseback experience then please share it with us here or in the Planeviz YouTube comments. Real life experiences really help others make the decision.
