Comparing Jet Aircraft For Sale


When buying a private aircraft there are several areas you should consider before starting the comparison process. Our team will walk you through each step from the initial meeting and provide support and guidance to develop a tailor made solution that meets the full requirement.

Flying profile

Understanding the client’s flying profile is key. This breaks down to the most regular routes, number of passengers and key destinations with landing possibilities/take off limitations. It is important to determine how often you will be up in the air each year and the length of each journey. If you fly long distances regularly, a midsize to long range jet is for you.

Destinations you fly to

What landing capabilities and options do the destinations you fly have? Many choose to land and find hangar space in smaller more discreet airports to maintain privacy, as opposed to larger more commercial airports that can not offer private hangarage. If you are looking to regularly use your aircraft it is also worth considering the distance between airports and your starting and final destination.

Number of passengers you travel with

Alongside range requirements, it is important to consider the number of passengers you will be flying with, including crew members. For company travel, an aircraft that caters for all board members may be an important factor for example.

What you and your guests expect when underway

The interior features of business aircraft go far beyond the technical these days. The sky really is the limit when it comes to deciding what features you would like to have with showers, double beds, wide screen TVs, bars and leisure entertainment systems and of course high speed wifi and modern communication systems that will enable full business productivity. It is also important to consider these aspects should you plan to operate your aircraft commercially when not in use. What will your charter clients expect?

Management and operational costs

Aircraft ownership requires full cooperation with your aircraft management company who will control the operation of the aircraft including the logistical elements such as hangar space, crew selection, employment and training, full financial accounting, aircraft CAMO and maintenance including inspections, flight planning, permits and overflight clearances, aircraft cleaning and galley provisioning. Some aircraft owners oversea these things closely however it’s really a case of having a company that knows the client’s preferences and everything happens seamlessly.
