How to save money when buying a private jetSometimes it’s the aircraft that you do not buy that is your best deal. Our client based in Europe was considering a Gulfstream GV or Global Express for their mission and we conducted a worldwide search and presented multiple options. As the market at that time was a strong sellers market and the options were limited and very expensive, we advised the client to consider a lease until the values stabilized and more inventory became available. The client agreed with our suggestion and our private jet brokers located a GV for a short term lease that provided lift and removed market risk. The client ultimately saved over $10 million dollars by delaying the purchase and now is ready to move forward with multiple options to choose from. The client now has a choice of Gulfstream GVs 550, Global Express and XRS that have come down in price by 30% or more.
