The A case (see also the B [UVA-G-0540] and C [UVA-G-0541] cases) presents a unique setting for exploring issues of outsourcing, in general, and purchasing a fractional ownership of a corporate plane, in particular. The case provides opportunities for learning about some of the issues involved in managing a corporate flight department. It also affords an opportunity for an analysis of relevant cost and net present value. Lastly, the case is a good vehicle for challenging students to think through the qualitative versus quantitative reasons favoring one or more alternatives and how they would make some of the trade-off decisions that arise.
