Where the charter is a 'bare-hull charter'1, the rights and liabilities inter se of the owner and the charterer depend primarily upon the individual contract2. In the absence of express terms it seems that the owner impliedly undertakes that the aircraft chartered is as fit for the purpose for which it is chartered as reasonable care and skill can render it3, and that any crew supplied are reasonably competent and skilful.
As regards liabilities to third parties, the statutory liability for damage caused to persons or property on the surface4 falls upon the charterer if the aircraft has been chartered
