Airlink is pleased to announce it has qualified for tax-exempt status as a charitable organization under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). The IRS has determined that Airlink is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes; with no part of its earnings benefitting any private shareholder or individual, and that it satisfies all the statutory requirements for exempt status. Section 501(c)(3) organizations are allowed to receive contributions from supporters that, subject to certain limits provided in the Code, are deductible from their taxable income in calculating their annual income tax liabilities. This allows for organizations such as Airlink to attract deductible contributions and thereby provide aid services that might otherwise need to be provided by the government.
GA Telesis LLC announced adding two on-lease A320 aircraft to its GAIN Investment platform. Earlier GA Telesis had announced it raised $500 million from institutional and private clients advised by Wafra Capital Partners to establish a new aviation investment vehicle focused on aircraft and engine investment opportunities. The vehicle, named GA Telesis Aviation Investments LLC ("GAIN"), also utilizes GA Telesis’ existing credit facilities thereby increasing GAIN’s capacity for investments to $1 billion.

The ability to comb through vast amounts of data is an important new business tool, and it will touch some aspect of your career, no matter what field you pursue. But the Big Data movement is not itself a panacea. It does not magically eliminate the need for human expertise and judgment nor make decisions for you.
Management Issues
