Co-Ownership Opportunities

Aircraft co-ownership is an incredible way to cut down on the fixed costs associated with owning and operating an aircraft and can also allow you to acquire an aircraft that can better suit your unique missions. But, as with any partnership, there can be significant difficulties and pitfalls without proper planning and documentation.  ACLG has worked for decades in the general aviation industry and has helped numerous clients engage in successful co-ownership of aircraft of all sizes.

Our team of lawyers and tax professionals will work directly with you and your co-owner to determine the appropriate ownership structure to maximize federal income tax deductions, reduce the impact of sales/use tax on the purchase, and comply with all FAA rules and Federal Aviation Regulations.  This will include the preparation of a Co-Ownership Agreement, which has been specifically crafted throughout decades of experience in the industry to avoid common pitfalls and issues between co-owners. 

While there are a number of companies that can assist with a small portion of your overall plan for aircraft co-ownership, ACLG is a leader in the general aviation industry for our Tax, Legal, and Compliance (“TLC”) work, which is why we are the Aviation TLC provider.  Contact us today to see how our team of professionals can assist you!
