    What does that mean for you?

     

    You’ve got the ratings, now use them to enhance your lifestyle! Aircraft ownership is the natural next step for pilots wanting to fly regularly, but finding the right plane to suit your needs can be difficult. CRAFT can help!

     

    CRAFT is growing! Through our partnership with Lifestyle Aviation, we are looking to our customer base to help us fill out our fleet. We are in need of more Diamond DA40s and DA42s.

     

    Most people think owning a plane is not a possibility due to the cost, but if you are currently in flight training, or you are a pilot, the most expensive aspect of flying is renting a plane. Through leaseback, you can own a plane, use it for personal use, and have CRAFT pay you to use it. Or maybe you already have a plane that is not being fully utilized, leaseback is a way to make plane ownership affordable, including huge tax benefits. Lifestyle Aviation has creative ways to make plane ownership affordable. From individual owner, leaseback, and partnership to DiamondShare.

     

    To learn how Leaseback works, and discover how the tax advantages might help you, contact us now and a specialist will review your situation to see if there is a good fit for you.
