    Listen in as NAFA member, Chris Younger, with GKG Law, talks with Gil Wolin in a recent Business Aviation Advisor "Drafting Your Team" Podcast.

    It’s not your first rodeo. You’ve bought business aircraft before, and now it’s time to make another move. Maybe your travel requirements have changed, the upkeep on your current aircraft has gone through the hangar roof – or today’s financing and tax opportunities are better.

    Or maybe it is your first acquisition. Occasional charter was OK, but your travel schedule now requires immediate access to your own aircraft.

    In both cases, buying the right aircraft at the right price today requires the right knowledge and expertise! In Drafting Your Team, aviation attorney Chris Younger of GKG Law describes what expertise you’ll need to make sure your first – or next – business aircraft acquisition meets your business and personal requirements.

    When there’s more to be said than space and copy deadlines allow, you can rely on the Business Aviation Advisor “Above and Beyond” podcast series to get you the information you need, enabling you to make the most of your aviation investments.
