Review Your Facts & Your Leases
Check your business entities and financial operations for any changes which may affect your compliance with the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), tax and regulatory requirements.
What Information Do You Need- Ask These Questions
- Is each lessee an entity that uses the aircraft within the scope of and incidental to its own business?
- Is any lessee providing flights to others for consideration?
- How does payment flow – for the aircraft and for the pilots?
- Does anyone pay the lessee to provide transportation?
- Is the ultimate ownership the same for the airplane and the entity that employs the crew?
What to Do With the Answers To Your Questions
If anything has changed since the last time you reviewed your aircraft’s ownership structure or aircraft operations, review the answers with your aviation counsel and tax advisor to confirm continued compliance with the FARs, tax laws and insurance policies
