For more than 14 years, Conklin & de Decker has been delivering informative programs covering important topics such as aircraft operating costs, taxes, and aircraft acquisition planning. This year’s line-up of educational seminars has been confirmed.

  • Exploring Aircraft Operating Costs – May 13-14, 2014 in Grapevine, Texas
  • Commercial Operators Tax –  August 5-6, 2014 in Van Nuys, California
  • Aircraft Acquisition Planning – December 9-10, 2014 in Scottsdale, Arizona

These seminars are in addition to the series of educational sessions that Conklin & de Decker conducts in affiliation with the Helicopter Association International (HAI) during the annual Heli-Expo convention.

The Exploring Aircraft Operating Costs Seminar was added last year and is designed for management personnel that deal with or have the responsibility for controlling operating costs. Managers from accounting, maintenance, inventory, operations, and others will find this course helpful in their effort to manage and understand operating costs. Individuals from fixed-wing or helicopter operations are encouraged to attend.

Everyone who owns, operates, or manages an aircraft encounters operating costs. But few understand them and fewer use them to influence their management decisions. The Exploring Aircraft Operating Costs Seminar focuses on this often misunderstood subject by exploring aircraft operating costs using a 3-step approach. The first step establishes a common foundation by identifying the various common categories of operating costs and discussing their definitions and assumptions. The second step examines the systems and methods for collecting operating cost data and converting it into information. The third step demonstrates how management can use operating cost information when making various decisions about the ownership and use of an aircraft.

The Commercial Operators Tax Seminar is the only Tax Seminar in the industry that is designed for the commercial operator (FAR Part 135) and focuses on the current tax issues affecting aircraft charter and management companies. Charter operators contend with a convoluted maze of Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), as well as Federal, State and local tax issues. Adding to the confusion is the additional tax complexity of Part 135 charter flying versus Part 91 owner flying.  Who needs to pay tax on what charges and to whom are the taxes owed? How often are they paid and who collects? These are all questions for which simple answers are hard to find, so Conklin & de Decker put together this two-day seminar to cover it all.
