Partnership maintenance costs
Posted: Fri Oct 31, 2014 9:46 am
I own a Eurofox and have 2 other pilots wanting to form a partnership. We believe that there should be a "fund" created for maintenance. Maintenance to me is everything except insurance, hangar and annual as those are a set cost and would be divided by the three of us. Who flies the plane the most should pay the most for maintenance. Do you pilots out there in a partnership have an "amount" per hour to fund maintenance? My own research to cover fuel, basic maintenance and an engine fund comes out to about $35 - $40 per hour. The plane has 460 hours equipped with a Rotax 912. Your feedback would be appreciated.
