Aeralis looks to jet training leasing model
Aeralis has announced plans to offer a new leasing model for its fighter jet pilot training aircraft.
The company is developing a new generation of fighter jet pilot training aircraft and flying training system based around a modular concept. The suite of jet trainers will be built around a common core fuselage with 85% commonality of parts.
Aeralis hopes that by offering a leasing option, customers will be able to maximise their training system flexibility as requirements shift over time, without being burdened by high capital purchasing costs.
Tim Davies, strategy director, Aeralis, said: ‘Buying trainer aircraft outright is a major investment for any air force and much of that investment is wasted when the planes are standing idle because the training needs have changed.
‘With our innovative leasing plans, Aeralis is changing all that. The Aeralis /lessor/lessee relationship means that the end user will be able to adapt their trainer fleet to meet both current and future training requirements.’
The company also aims to deliver shorter overall pilot training times by exposing students earlier to more complex mission management training via the use of configurable cockpits and a fully customisable flying training system.
