Flight Consumables Costs
On June 1, 2023, Leighnor Aircraft LLC will be renting aircraft dry, which means the rental rate is without fuel and other consumables costs. Flight consumables costs make up the operating cost of supplies the aircraft will use during flight. The vast bulk of this cost is fuel, with small allocations for oil, de-icing (if it is a ramp-based Prescott aircraft) and supplies.
Fuel cost updates will vary by location. Cutter FBO at Prescott typically updates fuel prices weekly. Cottonwood updates fuel prices when a new fuel shipment comes in.
Consumables costs, unlike the fuel surcharge, are not taxable as Arizona TPT tax (sales tax) is fully paid on all items that make up the consumables cost.
