Private Jet Marketplace Offers Many Great Deals, and Excellent Values

It’s only natural to look for the best deal, regardless of whether you’re buying a television, a car… or, a private jet. Daniel Jennings, founder and President of The Private Jet Company (TPJC) explains that certain private jet aircraft currently represent excellent deals in today’s market, often selling at prices far lower than buyers may expect. “We strongly believe the overall market is beginning to tighten, and inventories have decreased 50 percent over the last 24 months,” Jennings said. “That said, large cabin, long-range business jets from such manufacturers as Gulfstream, Dassault Falcon, and Bombardier continue to offer a lot

Feb 1, 2017 – The Private Jet Company Announced today: Since the U.S. presidential election sent ripples throughout the political landscape, we notice marketplace trends to indicate that private aircraft owners, operators, and users will have reason to cheer as Donald Trump took office last month. “There are enough positive signs of President Trump’s appreciation and enthusiasm for the Private Aviation industry that we expect to see as much as a 10% increase in demand for private aviation over the first 100 days of his administration,” said Daniel Jennings, President of The Private Jet Company a dedicated private jet sales brokerage firm.

Forecast Calls for Fewer New Private Jet Deliveries Leading to Higher Prices

Following years of gradual growth in sales of new business jets, a recent industry forecast predicts a slight decrease in sales of new private jets over the next 10 years. While this isn’t the best news for aircraft manufacturers, fewer new private aircraft deliveries could reverse years of decreasing prices for pre-owned business aircraft, making now the ideal time to buy a preowned private jet. According to the 25th annual Global Business Aviation Outlook released by Honeywell Aerospace earlier this month, ongoing political and economic concerns worldwide will drive deliveries of new private aircraft down through 2026. “We continue to

Finding Opportunities Where the Preowned and Air Charter Markets Meet

Bombardier’s August announcement that slumping demand will keep prices of its new business jets for sale under pressure is symptomatic of the downturn creating havoc in both the new and preowned aircraft markets. But the same socioeconomic forces helping flatten the sales curve of jet transactions are creating new business aircraft ownership opportunities in the air charter world. The fact is, though sales of new business jets have dropped sharply, business aviation activity beyond the world of buying and selling airplanes is strong. People still want and need to use business jets, but fewer want to own them. It’s part

FlexJet Expanding Its Horizons

With all of the private jet transportation companies operating today and the array of services they offer—taxi and air charter, leasing, fractional ownership, jet cards—you might think new market opportunities are scarce. That may be true in the U.S. but not so much for the rest of the world. “There are some 700 aircraft of all types chasing the charter market in the U.S. but just 125 to 150 serving international clients,” according to Daniel Jennings, president of The Private Jet Company, a Palm Beach, Fla.-based firm that specializes in the purchase and sale of mid-size and large business jets.
