Any tax benefit or otherwise would be overly consumed by the fees and costs for you to operate your own airplane.
PS - you would probably be out of a job. Unless you are the owner of the aircraft.
If you are the owner of the aircraft, My company is expanding and might be interested in your aircraft.
PM me if your interest is serious. An inspection status sheet and redacted copy of a work-order from the last phase inspection would be helpful
You must be from the marketing/sales/dispatch department?
The process to remove your aircraft from one certificate holder and place it on another could be problematic depending on the CHDO that has oversight of your prospective certificate coat-tail. If you have been with your current certificate for 6yrs, A008 was issued as a revision only. Your new CHDO will require definition of your relationship to demonstrate how A008 will be complied with. Depending on why you are jumping ship, you may be operating in a fuzzy gray area already that could be scrutinized by the new CHDO.
Just to clarify; you have been operating on someone else's certificate for 6yrs? Not on your own certificate and tired of the red tape?
Any chance you are on one of Segrave's multiple certificates out of NC?
At least Jr. gives you a smile before he bends you over. Stay where you are at unless you are hurting for more heartache.
We recently added our jet to DAE's fleet, and so far have been pretty happy with things. I recently had dinner with their director of sales and their supplemental lift manager along with another crew that is bringing a new XLS-Plus on their certificate, and they made several comments to the fact that more charters are lost because the lead pilot/point of contact from the managed aircraft opted out of proposed charter trips, i.e. "Oh, the boss needs the plane that weekend; we're not available on that day; yada yada yada." I'm sure there are factors that affect each managed aircraft's situation as well as aircraft marketability, no matter which 135 management company you're with.
I will say that having the ability to non-rev for my family and I is a pretty good perk...better than the flashlight I was given from my last 135 company.
