According to Ascension Air, pilots can get into a new airplane for around $10,000 down and a flat monthly fee of around $2,000. The $10,000 down figure is possible because the rest of the share price is financed. The purchaser, unlike in lease arrangements, gets full share ownership and the benefits that entails. There are also hourly costs, which the company says are essentially the cost of fuel, that are the owner’s responsibility. The monthly fee includes charts and data, insurance, aircraft storage, maintenance and Ascension’s “concierge” service.
