    Owners fly their aircraft, on their schedule. However, by cutting acquisition and fixed costs in half, the company contends that its Managed Co-Ownership program provides the lowest net cost of aircraft ownership while maintaining access comparable to sole ownership.

    Topics covered include:

    • How the company’s Managed Co-Ownership program works and what PIA specifically provides.
    • How PIA’s Managed Co-Ownership program compares with other ownership options.
    • Who is the typical Managed Co-Ownership client, and what are the aircraft size or model options available to them?
    • The costs associated with Managed Co-Ownership.
    • Charter revenue under Managed Co-Ownership.

    Partners In Aviation

    Partners In Aviation matches two owners to one aircraft, and to the appropriate aircraft manager, allowing the co-owners to fly their aircraft, on their schedule, at half the cost of traditional private aviation options. 

    The company’s program, PIA Managed Co-Ownership℠, developed by the industry’s top legal, tax, management, and maintenance experts, fully defines ownership structure; how the aircraft is shared; how co-owners divest; and how each co-owner’s interests are protected. 

    Launched in 2016 and headquartered in Chicago, PIA has matched co-owners in every turbine business-aircraft category. Clients are operating coast-to-coast — in their own aircraft, with their own crew, and on their own schedules. Two Owners. One Aircraft. Half the Cost.
