Every day, thousands of people travel by airplane, but only a few of them own their own plane. Ever wonder how many airplanes U.S. Airways owns? Or Delta? Continental? American Airlines? The answer is zero. No airline owns its own planes. Airlines are structured as multiple entity operations with a central operating company that leases each airplane from its own separate entity.
Why? Although airplanes are one of the safest ways to travel, accidents do happen. If you own an airplane, you should consider using this same technique to maximize your liability protection. By owning an airplane in a Delaware LLC, you shield your personal assets from creditors in case of an accident and/or lawsuit. For the best protection, let’s take a look at how Harvard Business Services, Inc. can help.
Bill, the owner of an airplane, calls up Harvard Business Services,Inc. and asks, “How do I protect my other assets from liability that may arise from my plane? Is a Delaware LLC one of the best asset protection entities?”
Yes, it is, Bill, and here’s how we can help:
Many of the major airline companies worldwide are incorporated here in Delaware to protect their assets. Why Delaware? Because Delaware’s legal infrastructure will stand behind you if you’re sued.
