Persons sharing an aircraft should have a document stating that the aircraft costs are shared and indicate the respective percentage of investment in the partnership (totaling 100%). Cards will be provided to registered lease holders only. Tenants who have not previously provided copies of partnership agreements will not be able to verbally confirm partnerships.
