There is in corporate aviation what can be called a constant, so recurrent this phenomenon is: as soon as a company, a group, owns a plane, this one is more and more frequently used, and as a consequence its intrinsic advantages become obvious. The corporate jet quickly reveals itself as a powerful lever for development through effortless trips, but especially as a must to generate productive time.
Complete demonstration made, the plane naturally takes its place in the day to day operations of the company, which develops quickly. As it becomes undersized, the aircraft is in need to be replaced.
When a consulting organization accompany a customer in replacing his aircraft, we invariably return to the origin of the needs: Why use a corporate aircraft?
A first necessary question in the analysis of the aircraft’s utilization policy within the company, and the relevance of the movements made, in order to understand and identify the mechanisms that permitted a mission to be productive, or not.
Once this base is clear and consolidated, the next question is: How to change this aircraft?
This question opens the door to many more: How to sell the existing aircraft? How to match the company’s pace of development with the choice of the aircraft? How to translate the needs of the company into technical specifications? For what type of budget? How to re-challenge the choice between private and Airline operations? Are our operating costs in line with the market? Do we have the in-house skills to answer all these questions
And eventually: Which aircraft to choose?
At that point, the seriousness of the previous work has precisely defined the expectations of the new aircraft, and as a consequence limited the number of contenders to a maximum of three or four different aircraft types. It will then be necessary to arbitrate between a brand new (and then foresee a follow-up on assembly line) or a second hand aircraft (and then settle a thorough pre-purchase inspection), in order to guard against financial or technical disappointment.
To achieve this goal with a good management of daily trips, and being aware of all challenges, some companies have already developped an in-house flight department, while others have chosen to outsource it. However when it comes to change the aircraft, all of them turn to an external counsel.
This is precisely job and expertise: To offer a global and independent vision. To provide a technical highlight. To give a tailor made solution.
In any case, the choice shall answer the leitmotiv: Corporate Aircraft, a productivity and work tool at the service of the company and its profitability!
