Event Sign Up August 23


As a professional Corporate pilot, part of my job is to advise my clients on acquisition of company aircraft. Part of any acquisition is forming a team of experts with knowledge in their designated field. Not just general accounting, but aviation tax specialist with years of experience. For my clients I only recommend Tom’s firm Aero & Marine. I became familiar with Aero & Marine after attending a complimentary, all day seminar taught by Tom Alston CEO. I found his seminar most informative, not just a sales presentation. Additionally, Tom gave each attendee a comprehensive copy of his PowerPoint presentation containing Tax 101 acquisition. Aero & Marine is a long-term business partner, even after aircraft acquisition they keep in contact with their clients, advising them of tax changes such as the latest tax issues such as the changes under the Trump administration. They also are experts on California state tax exemptions which is their specialty. By following Tom’s advice/checklist companies will save thousands in taxes.
