  • Insurance (i.e., passengers, baggage, cargo, etc.)
  • Airport and route fees (i.e., navigation, landings, ground handling, parking, storage, etc.)
  • Crew expenses (i.e., accommodation, perdiems, transfers, etc.)
  • Flight numbers (i.e., Air Operator’s Certificate)

Client pays according to the number of ‘block hours’ that the aircraft was operated, but with a monthly minimum-guaranteed number of ‘block hours’.
