105.0170 Leased Aircraft—Repair Parts. The lessee of an aircraft has the statutory obligation to make the necessary repairs to the aircraft in its possession, and to maintain them in operable condition. Therefore, parts installed by the lessee to repair or maintain the aircraft are not sales to the lessor of the aircraft, notwithstanding the lease provision passing title to such parts to the lessor. The purchase of such parts by the lessee are not exempt as sales for resale to the lessor, nor sold back to the lessee by the lessor in the form of a lease exempt under section 6366.1. The lessee is the consumer of the parts. 9/28/72; 5/29/96.
