Aircraft Ownership Programs

Whether you are a retired executive, a business owner, an entrepreneur or any other type of Aircraft user, the issues involved in owning and operating an aircraft is complex. How often you'll use a private aircraft & how, is an important consideration. Executive VIP has vast experience in assisting individuals & companies arrange aircraft ownership, management & piloting services.


 Important Considerations

Executive VIP recommends perspective owners start out by chartering an aircraft (as a method of collecting data) you will have a better understanding of how often, how far, at what times (in varying weather conditions) and how many people will be flying. Especially if passenger loads will tend to vary widely from trip to trip. The flexibility of charter may be advantageous, as they allow you to size the aircraft to meet each flight's requirements. Below is list of various considerations, variables & requirements involved in Aircraft Ownership:

  • Flying for both business & personal purposes
  • Ownerships; Full, Fractional, Lease
  • Structuring ownership for tax purposes
  • Determining Deductible business expenses
  • Hourly & Calendar maintenance expenses
  • Depreciation & selling your aircraft

  • Storage & security availability
  • Appeal & resourcefulness
  • Passenger numbers & weights
  • Destination & landing environments
  • Environmental impacts on flying
  • Pilot qualification requirements

Private Piloting

Once you take ownership of your first aircraft, undertaking training for a Private Pilots license becomes a complex, & time consuming process, with responsibilities & permissions as an acting Pilot In Command. 

A preliminary analysis of General Aviation accidents in Australia from 2007 to 2017, by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) reported the number of incident & accident occurrences in the Private/business flying operation is significantly greater (than sports aviation), and had the highest average rate of accidents & second highest fatal accident rate. 

 Typical considerations prior to a flight include: 

  • Navigational planning & fuel requirements 
  • Permissions for landing & entering controlled airspace
  • Determining maximum operating weight of the aircraft
  • Weather conditions & legal requirements
  • Principals of flight - Aircraft handling & limitations

  • Pilot fatigue Management 
  • Pilot licensing requirements
  • Pilot recency requirements
  • Aircraft Airworthiness
  • Threat & Error management
