Today on the Advisory Accelerator podcast, we're talking with Jerry Winkelmann, Executive Director at Engineered Advisory Services, Jack Lambert, Managing Partner at Jet Access Aviation, and Bart Peters, Managing Attorney at Business Aviation Law Group, about their unique jet aviation program.
As a CPA, you may have clients who would benefit from exploring the purchase of a private aircraft as an investment vehicle, especially when the plane is placed inside of a charter fleet, and from a tax minimization standpoint.

This is a great episode, especially if you're a CPA looking to drive value into your client relationships.
