Using your estimate of flight hours per year.

Your annual aircraft loan payment is $. This amount is not included in the above cost per hour or annual calculations. Depending on the aircraft type, age, and history, much of this cost may be recovered at time of sale.

Note 1: Clubs and some co-owners usually want to collect the engine and propeller reserve hourly figures within their hourly costs to themselves so that monies are on hand for future overhaul events.

Note 2: Individual owners will often refinance their aircraft if larger amounts are needed for major overhauls. These calculations do not include reserve costs for engine and propeller overhaul.

These are only a factor if you expect to keep the aircraft to TBO (Time Between Overhaul).
