FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bethesda, MD - 2017 marks private aviation consulting firm, Shaircraft Solutions', 20th year in business. In celebration of this milestone, Shaircraft launched a newly designed web site where potential clients can learn more about their services, read success stories and client testimonials, and browse topical newsroom articles authored by Shaircraft CEO, James Butler, Esq. “Our fresh look is symbolic of the many adaptations we’ve had to make to stay one step ahead in the ever-evolving private aviation industry,” says Butler. “We look forward to the next 20 years, continuing to get the best deals for private jet travelers.”
In 1997, Shaircraft Solutions made a splash in the private air travel scene, bringing to bear a unique combination of aviation expertise and legal counsel. “Private aviation began booming in the 1990s with the introduction of fractional jet ownership,” says Butler. “After assisting a couple of my law clients with fractional deals, I quickly discovered that the ‘boilerplate’ fractional contracts were one-sided and that, contrary to what customers were told, they were negotiable as well. Travelers, blinded by fancy brochures and smooth salespeople, were making costly mistakes and losing a lot of potential value. What was missing in the equation was an attorney and private aviation expert advocating solely on their behalf – someone sitting on their side of the table, putting their needs and interests ahead of the providers’ bottom lines and sales quotas.”
Shaircraft assists all types of elite travelers – from professional athletes to business executives and retired leisure travelers. Clients work one-on-one with Mr. Butler at any and every phase of their private aviation journey - whether they are new to private aviation and need guidance evaluating options, have settled on an investment and require assistance negotiating the best contract, are ready to renew a contract (but want to know if they can do better), need help getting out of an existing deal, or are anywhere in between. Shaircraft combines an in-depth industry knowledge of the full spectrum of today’s private aviation options – including fractional ownership, jet card, charter and more – with experienced legal counsel.
James D. Butler is an attorney and a foremost authority on private air travel. He has served as an expert analyst and contributor for media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, Robb Report, Forbes, Aviation International News, Business Jet Traveler, CNN and Fox News. He welcomes the opportunity to assist journalists covering all private aviation related topics.
