English term or phrase:engine reserve
Its a company that manages privately owned business jet. When the give the fees they say the owner has to pay them:
an “occupied” hourly fee covering all direct costs such as maintenance, engine reserves and catering.
Explanation: la tarifa horaria cubre todos los costos directos, tales como mantenimiento, reserva de la máquina y comidas.
I think that engine reserves could be either the (standby) cost of the plane, or: the fuel reserves of the engine.
In either case "reserva de la máquina" is sufficiently ambiguous to cover both options.
