What is a “Leaseback”?
The term “Leaseback” is more or less industry jargon and somewhat of a misnomer. With an aircraft Leaseback, Mid Island Flight School serves the role of asset management. The aircraft is owned by the individual, while Mid Island Flight School is responsible for introducing qualified customers, as well as managing all financial transactions. A better term would be “Dispatch Agreement”, but hey we’re not ones to go against the grain.

Similar Example – Beach Condo:Let’s examine a similar situation with a beach condo. If you wanted to put that property to work and turn it from a liability to an asset, your only legal option (assuming that’s your thing), is to put some renters in there when it’s not being utilized. Now let’s say that you also have to balance work and family life as well, so it’s not reasonable for you to take care of all the hassles of management. That’s when a property management firm comes into the picture. They take care of finding customers, the financial transactions and making sure the place is attractive.
In the case of a Leaseback, Mid Island Flight School is your management firm and we take care of finding students/renters, assuring their competency, collecting the money and making sure your aircraft is maintained to the highest standards.
