Private Aircraft: The solution is this, the recent airline recession has placed a large number of airliners on the market. These Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier CRJ, and Embraer ERJ airframes can be cost effectively converted to corporate service at the fraction of the price of buying a new corporate aircraft. This allows for a very acceptable cost cutting alternative without skimping on quality and functionability.There are other aspects of this solution that are very attractive, for example:

  • An aviation consulting firm can help to divest of the current asset or future delivery position.
  • The conversion of the aircraft will take place in the US, helping a US company, putting US workers to work(become a contributor to the solution instead of a focus point of the problem).
  • Finally, arrangements can be made to assist with obtaining or placing the aircraft on an existing 135 certificate to operate under thus creating a consistant revenue flow when not being used for company business.

    Some aviation consulting firms have access to all new and pre-owned aircraft on the market and can arrange new aircraft delivery positions without waiting years. By not being aircraft brokers or a manufacturer's salesperson consulting firms are not limited to an individual brand or individual listings. Aviation consultants then pass along all the favorable terms and get them directly to the client.

    Before contacting a manufacturer, jet sales firm or an aircraft broker, contact a consulting firm. Have an aviation consultant on your side. If the desire is for a large cabin Head of State level aircraft and there isn't a need to go into a few of the smaller corporate airports then a corporate airliner may fit the specific need. Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier CRJ, and Embraer ERJ are luxurious, reliable and safe aircraft. There are a few ways to acquire a corporate airliner: purchase a new one from the manufacturer, buy a pre-owned one or the most cost effective manner is to acquire an airliner and convert it for corporate service for a fraction of the cost of a new one. An aviation consulting firm can be of assistance regardless of the path choose.
