    *** I've seen reference to this. I wonder if it translates to a higher
    rate for income tax purposes?

    I use my Sundowner in my business all the time - it's the only way
    I can find the time to fly it. I own a couple of apartment buildings
    at moderate distance ( 180miles, 80miles ) and keep an old car at each
    airport.

    I've just been taking the 40-something cents per mile - never even
    mention the word "airplane" in my tax return.

    But if the government acknowledges that air travel is more expensive
    for their employees, then what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the
    gander, right? Must be more expensive for John Q Public, too.

    The alternative would be to seriously and accurately tabulate the
    expenses of flying, count up the hours flying due to the business as
    opposed to the pure pleasure hours, do a partial depreciation of the
    airframe.... Yuck! Too much work!

    Travel using privately owned airplane

    Hello all,

    I am a gubment employee currently and I fly my A24 all over the place while
    traveling for the gubment. The current GSA reimbursement for flying my A24
    is $1.07 per mile. I pay all the costs.

    Not too bad, all things being equal.
