Helicopter leases are quite common as they are hassle-free and serve the purpose of the lessee. The following are the main types of Helicopter leases:
- Dry Lease: In a dry lease, the lessee gets only the helicopter and no crew. So, they are in charge of the operations
- Wet Lease: In a wet lease, the lessee gets the helicopter along with at least one crew and operations are controlled by the lessor.
