We're in a highly complex and fragmented industry, where access to reliable expertise can make the difference between saving millions of dollars or writing them off. That's why we're proud to provide proprietary data analytics to help you maximize your dollars and your mission. Our philosophy is to serve you uniquely, by developing a deep understanding of your operations and company culture.

Through this understanding, we can ensure alignment from your owner or "C-suite" all the way through to the flight department. And, ultimately, toward a finely tuned strategy for the purchasing and/or selling of aircraft.

With an enduring passion for aviation as a common thread, our success is driven by our focus on integrity, industry expertise and the ability to consistently deliver business value to you.

Our Five-Pillar Philosophy

Whether it's for first-time potential buyers or the world's largest and most sophisticated flight departments, we provide industry-leading aircraft brokerage and consulting services.

Our driving goal is to earn the right to buy and sell aircraft on our client's behalf using these five pillars:



Understanding aircraft values is at the heart of everything we do. We efficiently deliver the best data in real time via a Guardian Estimate™.
