Default 10 Best Ways to Justify Your Aircraft Purchase

For those of us who've caught the "aviation bug" finding a way to
justify the purchase of an airplane becomes an all consuming mental
task. Make this task simple by choosing the appropriate reasons from
the list below:

1. The airplane will make money for me.

This one actually works! Learn about leasebacks and/or using your
airplane in your business by visiting:

www.airplanenoise.com

2. My business will benefit from my increased productivity when I fly
instead of drive.

Save time and money by flying yourself! You can avoid hours at the
security gate and layover time by flying yourself. Most regional trips
will be completed in a fraction of the time you'd spend driving or
flying commercially. Learn more by visiting:

3. The airplane will keep my family together.

Many people find their children off to college and their parents
staying in the south. A personal aircraft allows you to stay in
contact and maintain the relationships that are so important to you.
After all. . . is there anything more important than our relationships
with our family and friends?

4. Learning to fly provides a new challenge.

Most of us have dreamed about flying since our childhood. What's
preventing us from taking that step? Life's too short to
procrastinate!

5. I can vacation every weekend!


No doubt, every weekend can be earmarked for a new destination. Start
with you own state, and expand to other states. Visit museums,
recreation areas, friends . . . the sky's the limit! Start with this
list:

6. I can make an airplane payment instead of an IRS payment!

With minimal business use (30%), your airplane purchase may be a
depreciable asset. New tax laws significantly increased the tax
benefit to owners. Learn more by downloading a FREE audio TeleClass
at:

7. I can enhance my children's educational experience.

Children learn more from an experience rather than sitting in a
classroom or reading a book. Trips to Washington D.C., Niagara Falls,
Gettysburg, PA, Kitty Hawk are all great reasons to fly the family.
Re-live your childhood at the same time.

8. Flying as therapy?

Well, believe it or not, some people fly for its therapeutic benefits.
Life's problems seem to disintegrate as altitude increases. Try it
next time you're feeling overwhelmed by life's challenges!

9. An airplane is a terrific status symbol.

If status is what you're looking for. . . you can't beat an airplane.
Not only are pilots looked up to, but when it's your own airplane. . .
"You've arrived!" No one even needs to know that the airplane is
generating a positive cash flow.

10. I just WANT one!

Sometimes we just need to satisfy or desires! "I'm worth it." "I've
worked hard and this is my reward." "I only live once!"

I know you can add to this list!

Best remove DC from the list.


There are many fine airports in Virginia and Maryland that will allow you to
visit DC if you care to take the time, deal with the added expense, etc.

Isn't this a reason not to fly, i.e. P.A.V.E.?

Best reason...Be honest. It's because you want one, or rationalize
rather than justify

If it flys, floats, or fornicates, you are better off renting!

If it has tires or testicles it's going to be trouble!
