Private Aircraft Management Placement
As we are not an aircraft management company we provide an UNBIASED approach to recommendations for our clients. With over 300 management companies in the US alone many owners do not have the time and knowledge to evaluate the best Opportunites. Whether you want more charter hours or free wifi we have the right operator and program for you and together craft the terms and conditions that fit each client’s needs.
The Private Jet Company has even created a triple net lease program with some operators wherein the owner has NO exposure to fixed or variable expenses and instead receives a flat monthly lease fee.
The large majority of our private jet aircraft acquisition clients place their aircraft with an aircraft management firm.
The role of an aircraft management firm is to provide comprehensive operations, maintenance, training, safety, regulatory and charter services for their client owner aircraft while preserving the value of the aviation asset.
Our long-term successful criteria for recommending an Aircraft Management Company to our aircraft buyers are the following:
What is the history of the management company providing aircraft management services?
What is the company’s financial stability and creditworthiness?
What type and how many aircraft do they operate?
Are they highly experienced in operating the Make, Model and YOM of the specific aircraft our client has acquired?
How convenient is the management company’s physical location to the aircraft owner’s home base?
Does the management company operate Part 91 and Part 135 programs?
Can the management company meet the client’s operational requirements?
What is the company’s safety record?
Is the company Argus and Wyvern rated?
Are the pilots dedicated to the client’s specific aircraft or are pool-pilots utilized?
What is the management company’s capacity to charter the aircraft?
How many charter hours per month can the company effectively and efficiently manage?
What is the management company’s commitment to the Owner when the Owner’s aircraft is unavailable due to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance?
