I am not sure where to put this question, so forgive me if this is the wrong place. To ask a dumb question, why doesn't someone somewhere lease small planes? I would guess its not practical or someone would be doing it. I am trying to find an affordable way to fly!

The current issue of Controller has 22 "aircraft for lease" listings. The smallest planes are 172's and Diamond DA 40. One of the Diamond's is advertised for lease at $500/mo and $125/hr.

I'm sure you could make a lease deal with almost any operator that has planes for sale/rent.
