De-risking your business aircraft: why owning an aircraft doesn’t have to give you a headache!

Risk is the hot topic on everyone’s lips. As an aircraft owner or operator, knowing your risks and knowing how to manage risk is an essential part of the job. Failing to understand when you are entering risky territory, or worse, pushing the boundaries entirely could result in harsh penalties.
