Considering Purchasing an Aircraft For Your Business? Here’s What You Need to Know

6 May 2024

In today’s business world, time is often of the essence, and efficiency is paramount. Many companies around the world capitalize on private air travel to provide executives and employees with the ability to reach their destinations quickly, safely, and with maximum flexibility, thus seizing business opportunities. If your business is considering purchasing an aircraft for the first time, there are several factors to consider to ensure that you make an informed decision that aligns with your company’s needs and objectives. In this article, we’ll explore some of the key considerations for businesses considering purchasing an aircraft.

Assess Your Travel Needs:

The first step in determining whether purchasing an aircraft is right for your business is to assess your overall flight needs and requirements – both on a monthly and annual basis. The main question to ask is, “How many hours do we anticipate flying privately this year?” Consider other factors such as the frequency of your travel, the average number of passengers, routes, and the flexibility required for your travel schedule. If your business frequently conducts long-distance travel, multiple city visits in one day, or visits remote locations that are not easily accessible by commercial airlines, owning a private aircraft may provide your business with significant cost and time savings, allowing your business to reach new heights.

Evaluate Cost and Budget:

Purchasing an aircraft involves significant upfront costs, as well as ongoing expenses for maintenance, insurance, fuel, and operating costs. Evaluate your company’s budget and financial resources to determine whether purchasing an aircraft is financially feasible. Consider factors such as depreciation, financing options, tax implications, and potential return on investment when assessing the cost of aircraft ownership. Additionally, consider alternative solutions such as aircraft charter, jet cards, and fractional ownership if acquiring an aircraft is not financially viable.

Consider Aircraft Type:

With many different aircraft types and categories available for sale, selecting the correct aircraft type is crucial. Whether you opt for a turboprop for domestic flights or a large cabin aircraft for long-range travel, selecting the right aircraft type that meets the performance, comfort, and versatility required to support your business objectives is vital.

Ensure Regulatory Compliance:

Owning and operating an aircraft entails compliance with various regulatory requirements, including safety regulations, maintenance standards, and operational guidelines. Ensure that your business is prepared to meet these regulatory obligations and invest in the necessary resources and infrastructure to maintain compliance.
