Are you ready to buy a jet and thinking about hiring an aircraft management company?
There are many benefits to working with aviation experts to operate your jet, and you need to know the right questions to ask. Below, we’ve got 20 questions for you to consider as you’re interviewing management companies.
But first, let’s talk about what a management company does.
A private aircraft management company is a third-party aviation services firm that helps an aircraft owner handle all aspects of operating a jet.
From an aircraft owner’s perspective, a management company representative has ongoing communication with you to coordinate your itineraries, catering and dispatching. But these reps also handle everything behind the scenes. This includes everything from fueling, cleaning, maintenance, and technical services, to insurance, hiring, training, safety, security and billing.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned owner, you can enjoy the benefits of jet ownership without the stress of managing daily aircraft operations. After advising the management company of your travel, simply pull your car up to the jet and head to your destination. Like a concierge, they’ll take care of the rest.
An aircraft management company can provide various advantages for aircraft owners.
If you’ve never owned a jet, you might not realize the expenses associated with airplane ownership. It’s a costly investment, and here at Guardian Jet we can help you estimate your cost of ownership.
Costs will depend on what type of aircraft you own, and what level of management you desire.
