Register at NBAA-BACE for Conklin & de Decker's Aircraft Acquisition Planning Seminar

Conklin & de Decker’s registration is now open for the 18th Aircraft Acquisition Planning Seminar on Dec. 5th and 6th at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (BACE) 2017 attendees in Las Vegas, NV, can register for the industry event at the Conklin & de Decker booth, #C7634.

Unique from other seminars and workshops, the Conklin & de Decker Aircraft Acquisition Planning Seminar (AAP) is the only program that is designed to help the aircraft buyer, aircraft owner or aviation professional make informed decisions when buying, selling and owning an aircraft. The seminar will focus on the many areas of concern that affect the aircraft owner throughout the acquisition process.

“We have been presenting the AAP seminar for years, and there is always something new to learn about the purchasing process and the complexities of operating a business aircraft in today’s environment,” says Nel Stubbs, Conklin & de Decker co-owner and seminar chairwoman. “In addition to the Conklin & de Decker staff of specialists, we have an outstanding group of industry experts scheduled to present at this 18th event."

The AAP Seminar is packed full of information that will assist the aviation professional who needs to develop a plan for changing their aircraft fleet when the time is right and will help determine which aircraft best meets their mission profile. Attendees will learn about the often confusing federal and state taxes associated with aircraft acquisitions, depreciation and like-kind exchanges, as well as the analysis of the various financing alternatives and ownership structures. The latest details about aircraft management, registration and creating a budget for an aircraft operation will also be covered in this comprehensive seminar.

The Aircraft Acquisition Planning Seminar is certified by the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) to be a Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) accredited program, allowing attendees to receive CAM credit for participating in this seminar. Upon written request, Conklin & de Decker will also provide individual attorneys and CPAs with an attendance confirmation letter to support their application for CPE or CLE credit in their respective states.  Based on a 50-minute hour, the Aircraft Acquisition Planning Seminar should be eligible for up to a maximum of 16 CPE/CLE credits for the full 2-day seminar.
