Question: Does AOPA Finance offer any options for a flight school aircraft purchase? I’d be looking for a one year loan of $100,000 to purchase a 1977 Piper Archer.

Answer: We have limited options for aircraft being used by a flight school.  Our lenders are typically limited to aircraft purchased for personal use, but made available to a flight school through a leaseback agreement.  Terms for a leaseback are typically between 10 and 12 years, with a minimum down payment of 25% to 30%, depending on the aircraft and lending option available.  Financing for a leaseback to a flight school often has very specific requirements, so please give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss the details with you.
