Leasing the AT-802F: Multi-Role Capabilities

Leasing the AT-802F provides maximum proficiency and agility for firefighting and crop dusting efforts. Larger fires can be contained with four 802F aircraft if roads or natural breaks can be incorporated as containment lines. This ultimately makes it easier for fire agencies to adjust their responses to the fire’s size and behavior.

The AT-802F was originally designed for spraying chemicals on farm lands. However, because of the proven effectiveness, firefighting is this aircraft’s main focus. Flex Air Charters can help facilitate this aircraft for organizations looking to upgrade their firefighting operations during peak fire seasons. With a Flex Air Charters ACMI lease, all you need to operate this aircraft is an unimproved runway or water-side ramp and fuel!

There is a lot of responsibility and financial burden that comes with owning and operating your own aircraft. ACMI leases offer pilots and operators the ability to operate or test an aircraft without the responsibilities that go with actually owning your own aircraft!

Dry Lease

Dry leases supply aircraft to certified charter operators and lessees without the extras. The crew, staff, supporting equipment, maintenance programs, and insurance plans are obtained and managed by the lessees. Dry leases are utilized mostly by companies and banks. Leasing a AT-802F requires the lessee to obtain an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) and registration for the aircraft. The owner will hand over possession of the aircraft to the lessee and will have no operational control over the aircraft.

Wet Lease

Wet leases do not require the transfer of possession of the AT-802F. The lessor will provide the aircraft with a complete crew, maintenance plan, and insurance. However, the lessee will cover the hours of operation, fuel costs, airport fees, taxes, and other necessary expenditures. Wet leases allow for more flexibility with the lease term. Usually, these leasing contracts last anywhere from a month to two years.
