Private aircraft buyers want accurate and detailed information about private planes available for sale on the many websites that offer such listings, before making contact with the other party in the transaction, or with a private aircraft broker, to discuss a potential deal. The prospective buyers likely feel the information gives them a good sense of marketplace values, providing a strategic advantage as they begin their negotiations for the aircraft purchase. But despite all the listings and all the figures thrown about, pre-owned aircraft data on the Internet is typically outdated, incomplete and misleading. Moreover, many of the best candidate aircraft for purchase never even appear on the Web, often changing hands in broker-to-broker transactions as clients move up to a new model – unlike the auto industry, today aircraft manufacturers rarely take trade-ins. This is one reason why buyers and sellers alike need to work with a qualified and experienced aircraft broker.
The Private Jet Company was founded on the principle that an aircraft broker should be the client’s trusted advisor, whether buying or selling. We view our responsibility as not only to provide accurate information and pricing for aircraft considered for purchase, but more broadly to help the client understand current market conditions and comparable aircraft values, as well as provide referrals for pre-purchase inspections and guidance on registration agents, aviation attorneys, qualified contract pilots, tax advisors and other agents who can help facilitate the transaction efficiently and with the client's best interest at heart. We also advise clients on fixed base operators for managing and operating the aircraft after purchase.
