Aircraft management - the whats, the whys, and the hows of it.
Service, staffing, cost control - aircraft management in a nutshell
Owning an aircraft is not just about flying, though it is the main reason one has a plane. There’s a lot to take care of and manage when you own a business jet.
Common issues might relate to:
- service delivery
- crew/staffing (pilot shortage)
- cost control and
- underutilization of the aircraft and crew retention
All this is better to be left in the hands of experienced aircraft management experts. Proper aircraft management service covers flight schedules, pilot training, resourcing, and aircraft maintenance. And if you wish, chartering your aircraft to keep costs in control. With dedicated professional help, owning an aircraft can be easy. Also, you want your asset to be handled with diligence and care - to ensure you can maximize the value if you want to dispose of it for another aircraft later on.

airworthiness and retaining value. You surely want a carefree management service for the aircraft. To get this, there are a few things you want to check from the offers you get from aircraft management companies: Service portfolio, qualifications, certificates, additional fees, possible limitations, etc. Make sure it’s an extensive service portfolio they offer to manage every aspect of your flight operations and aircraft maintenance.
