Key Areas to Consider When Evaluating Ownership 

•  New or used aircraft 
•  Risk of market depreciation 
•  Sharing arrangements (e.g., co-ownership, joint ownership, interchange, 

time sharing or dry leasing) 

•  Internal flight department versus contracting with an aircraft management 

company 

•  Possibility of chartering out excess flight capacity to reduce overall costs 
•  Strategies for shielding potential liability exposure 
•  Cash flow considerations 
•  Own versus lease decisions and balance sheet treatment 

• 

Public company disclosure requirements

 

"Chartering a plane, either directly from a charter company or through a charter broker, is often the most cost effective way to fly private."
