• Entertainment use regulations issued.

• Bonus depreciation is renewed at 50 percent for aircraft purchased in 2013 and for certain aircraft delivered in 2014.

• Owners must monitor personal use to ensure prior year bonus depreciation is not recaptured.

• FAA modifies “Schwab” rule to permit executives’ reimbursement of employers for certain personal use of aircraft.
