Private Aviation

Private aviation offers unique opportunities to conduct business efficiently and confidentially. High net worth individuals and businesses turn to us to assess the complex finance, tax and corporate considerations to meet their private aviation needs.

Our team has a wealth of experience and advises on the full range of private aviation issues, including how the aircraft will be used and what entity holds the title—whether it’s a trust, company, individual or LLC—to determine the most cost-effective, tax-efficient ownership structure. We counsel owners and holders of pre-paid jet cards or fractional interests in business jets on the acquisition, sale and operation of their aircraft. We are among law firms nationally that have worked most with fractional interest jet companies on their transactions.

Well-versed in all aspects of private aviation, we coordinate with aviation experts and lenders to handle pre-purchase arrangements, negotiate loan, purchase and leasing documents, review insurance specifications, and resolve coverage issues. Our hands-on private aviation counsel includes interactions with aircraft management companies and legal services for fixed-base operators.
