What is a dry lease?


 

Transcript:

The terms “wet” and “dry” for aircraft leases can be a source of confusion. The way most people in the industry use the term “wet” refers to a lease that includes that includes the cost of fuel while “dry” means that the lessee must purchase the fuel themselves. However, the FAA uses wet lease to refer to lessees that include a crew for the aircraft while dry lease refers to just the aircraft as a piece of equipment and the lessee providing the crew. Many FAA publications cover restrictions on wet leasing, and it is important to understand that they mean leases that include a crew, not fuel.
