CORPORATE AND PRIVATE AVIATION

TO OWN, OR NOT TO OWN?

Industry rules of thumb suggest that aircraft users with an annual need for up to, say, 50 flight hours typically charter.   From 50-100 flight hours, a block of charter time is best perhaps purchased at a negotiated rate.   From 100 to 200 hours, joint ownership, co-ownership or a fractional share may make the most sense, with full ownership often being most appropriate above 200 or more hours annually. 

Nevertheless, it is clearly true that many private users are in the position to make the decision whether to own an aircraft or not based purely on their own personal needs and requirements rather than a rigid application of an estimation of the number of flight hours to be operated.
