Conklin & de Decker recently announced that they will host the 12th Annual Aircraft Acquisition and Planning Seminar in Scottsdale, Arizona on December 6-7, 2011 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.

Unique from other seminars and workshops, the Conklin & de Decker Aircraft Acquisition Planning Seminar is the only seminar that is designed to help the aircraft buyer, owner or aviation professional understand how to make an informed decision when buying and owning an aircraft. This Seminar will focus on the many areas of concern affecting the aircraft owner during and after the acquisition.

Created for the aircraft owner, manager or aviation professional that is faced with the need to acquire an aircraft or develop a plan for changing an aircraft fleet, this 2-day seminar is a must for anyone who needs to determine the best aircraft for their mission. Attendees will learn about the often confusing Federal and State taxes associated with aircraft acquisitions, depreciation, like-kind exchanges, as well as the analysis behind the various financing alternatives and ownership structures.  The latest in aircraft valuation and appraisals, insurance, and the importance of a competitive acquisition process will be covered in this comprehensive seminar.

Nel Stubbs, Conklin & de Decker co-owner and seminar chairwoman, said this is a must attend event for anyone involved in the acquisition and operation of business aircraft.
