I’ve heard the idea of owning an aircraft and letting an FBO (or flight school, etc.) rent it to others and also maintain it, though the owner is responsible for the maintenance costs. While this wouldn’t likely be a money maker, it would help the aircraft pay for itself, and also ensure it’s flown regularly if the owner weren’t always able to fly (an OTR truck driver, perhaps). How would this work? What percentage of the profit would the FBO keep? Would it be hard to find an FBO or other organization willing to do this? I like to think if you’d be purchasing their fuel and paying their A&P for maintenance, most FBO’s would jump at the chance. You don’t have to flood the thread on why this would be a bad idea. Higher insurance premiums, plus student pilots (and some barely-current veteran pilots) doing hard landings would be a negative. Not to mention the fact that I as the owner would have to be on the schedule just like the other renters. Has anyone ever done this or know of someone doing it? Could this be a good idea to help mitigate the costs of ownership?
