Our Services

Our services platform includes principally:

Aircraft Product and Service Selection

Aircraft Product and Service Selection

Investing in, owning and operating an aircraft carries serious financial implications. We assist buyers and brokers with flight mission analysis, investment analysis, product comparison, market analysis and product selection. When mission requirements do not call for whole aircraft acquisition, we assist clients in choosing among alternatives including fractional ownership, joint ownership, charter arrangements and leasing.

Transaction Origination and Management

Transaction Origination and Management

To stake out and protect negotiating positions, best practice is to engage aviation counsel before any documents are signed. Whenever in the process we are engaged, we bring a wealth of experience and expertise to negotiating, documenting and closing aircraft purchase, sale and financing transactions. As our impressive client base is global, we routinely manage cross-border deals, exports and imports.

Ownership and Operating Platform Optimization

Ownership and Operating Platform Optimization

Safely and efficiently owning and operating a business aircraft calls for highly nuanced analysis of Federal Aviation Regulations, income, sales, property and excise tax matters, asset protection and liability limitation, corporate structuring and economics. We guide our clients in developing, implementing and maintaining an optimal aircraft ownership and operating platform. In implementation, we negotiate and document ownership trusts, operating agreements, aircraft management and charter arrangements, and fractional, joint and other shared ownership arrangements.
