OUR APPROACH TO AIRCRAFT ACQUISITIONS
We’ll get to know you and your needs, then develop a flight profile that details your requests and requirements. Based on this flight profile your acquisition time frame, and how your aircraft will be utilized (e.g. for charter), we’ll identify those aircraft features and cabin amenities that best satisfy your needs, then target new or pre-owned models that are potential match.
Next, we will help determine ownership structure, present forecasted operational costs, and guide you through the costs of acquisition, including escrow fees. We’ll offer strategies for navigating complex federal and state tax challenges and provide in-house financing if needed.
Search + Locate
We’ll leverage our network of clients and industry contacts to conduct a domestic and international search. Once we’ve identified on-and/or off-market opportunities, we will present you with an in-depth report of your options. Based on your decision, we’ll award letters of Intent and coordinate with legal counsel on purchase agreement.
Pre- Buy + Closing
Inspection time: our team will select the best pre-buy facility and define the work scope, timeline, and terms. An assigned Maintenance Representative (AMR) will be onsite to supervise the inspections, coordinate necessary repairs, and negotiate final concessions.
Entry into Service
Once the title is transferred, we will obtain necessary certificates, help you to bring onboard your crew. We’ll initiate hangar and fueling arrangements, establish the warranty and parts program, and arrange subscription services, completions, and upgrades. When the title arrangements are finalized, we’ll coordinate ferry – delivery of your new asset to its new homebase.
Management & Ongoing Optimization
Whether you’d like to self-manage or work with a management company – such as our own Wing Aviation – we’re here to provide you the best alternatives to help maintain your asset value.
OUR APPROACH TO AIRCRAFT SALES
When you’re ready to sell your aircraft, we’ll schedule a meeting to discuss your needs, goals, and desired timeframe. We’ll conduct a full market analysis, provide a clear assessment of the value of your aircraft, and put together a strategy for selling the asset.
We will develop a plan to market your plane, utilizing various external services to reach both potential buyers and brokers. We’ll create promotional materials like teaser flyers and e-blasts, feature your aircraft on high-traffic listing sites, and run print advertisements in various industry-leading publications.
In this lead generation stage, we will build a comprehensive listing package that overviews the pre-buy specifications that any qualified buyer will demand to see, including the Aircraft Records & Condition survey, documentation on recent maintenance, upgrade history, detailed imagery, and more. We will collect and report all sales activity to you on a monthly basis..
Pre-Buy + Closing
Once we identify a potential buyer and agree on preliminary purchasing details, we’ll prepare the aircraft for the showing and pre-buy inspections. Our experienced maintenance team will walk the buyer and his broker or agent through any and every service detail and documentation to ensure their complete confidence and satisfaction with the aircraft.
