Like any major purchase an aircraft requires due diligence. This means assembling a team to help you. An aircraft broker can evaluate your needs relative to the aircraft available in the marketplace, and find you the best match of cost, capabilities, and long-term value. A qualified inspection mechanic is a must. Especially for a used aircraft. An attorney can help you structure not only the purchase transaction, but also how you integrate the aircraft into your business while avoiding traps related to for example FAA rules, state sales and use taxes, and federal income and excise taxes.
