The acquisition or sale of a business aircraft appears to be no different from any other capital good purchase, lease or disposal. But it is - dramatically so. Even the most accomplished individual, astute business owner or senior level executive, erudite chief financial officer, or seasoned aviation professional has usually only been through this detailed and complex transaction process on occasion.
In addition to the normal monetary considerations, tax consequences and financially detrimental issues to be avoided, a host of specific and often confusing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules and regulations also exist. Strict adherence to and rigid compliance with these numerous requirements is a non-negotiable prerequisite for the successful outcome of any transaction, whether you want to sell or buy a business aircraft. Consequently, the potential for problems not only always exists but is also always very real. However, the much more frequent concern is a decision that simply costs you too much, leaves too much of your money on the negotiating table, or which doesn't truly provide exactly the needed or desired capability. Thus, when it comes to private jets for sale, lease or purchase, there is no substitute for in-depth and detailed knowledge, global connections, and long-term relationships built on a solid reputation for integrity and demonstrated past performance over many years.
Obtaining the maximum selling price in the minimum amount of time when putting up a private jet for sale requires finely honed skills accompanied by detailed and thorough planning, insightful marketing, creative advertising, and unique promotion. Additionally, a strong command of the overall business aircraft marketplace -- along with intimate familiarity about individual and unique circumstances for a specific business jet or turboprop year, make and model -- is mandatory. But in the course of normal events, does the average, or even exemplary, business person or flight department manager truly possess such knowledge to make the right or best decision? In nearly every case it is probably safe to say no.
Likewise, if there are private planes for sale, the obvious expectation is that there are buyers seeking those same aircraft - but who are they and where are they located are two essential questions that need to be quickly and accurately answered. Or, prospective buyers may know that they have a need to access the significantly increased productivity and substantially reduced total travel time provided through the utilization of a business aviation asset. Yet they may not, and frequently do not, know exactly which specific business aircraft to employ. Once again the critical need for detailed knowledge, extensive experience and business aviation market intelligence comes into play. Just as when a private jet for sale comes onto the market, that same conversance, diligence and expert guidance can prevent the same missteps noted above in regard to a private plane for sale.
In summary, selecting a trusted and capable partner who knows precisely how to keep your best interests first and foremost, and who possesses both broad as well as detailed business aviation, business jet and business turboprop knowledge, is a critical and indispensable step in the transaction process.
