Personnel & Consultant Referrals
Over the years, JBA has formed excellent relationships with many leading turbine aircraft operators, service and support centers, as well as professional maintenance and legal consultants. These relationships can be invaluable in the negotiation and pre-purchase inspection phase of a transaction and can make putting an aircraft in service a seamless transition rather than facing all the pitfalls that come with a uniformed purchase.
The intricacies of international transactions are often considerable obstacles to buying or selling a turbine aircraft. Our thorough knowledge of federal and foreign regulations, including such technical procedures as export C of A, deregistration, import C of A, foreign registration and other regulatory requirements, can greatly ease the transaction process.
Like Kind Exchange
Taxes can add hundreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars to the cost of purchasing or selling an aircraft. JBA works with several of the top Qualified Intermediary service companies to facilitate 1031 like-kind exchanges thus deferring federal taxes as well as a portion of any state sales tax that may be due as a result of the transaction. Coordinating the timing of your transaction to fit within the guidelines of a like kind exchange can mean a significant cost savings on your transaction.
Aviation is a cutting edge industry. Unless you are up to speed on all the latest industry trends, you might not be equipped to make the right decision for your flight department. JBA personnel spend considerable time attending trade shows and association forums to stay up to speed on the current direction of all things aviation. We are frequently cited in industry publications like Business & Commercial Aviation and Aviation International News as experts on the trends that effect corporate aviation.
