Acquiring an Aircraft?… Better Put On Your “Broker Face”…

Buying a used aircraft can be both an exciting and frustrating adventure for the first-time buyer, especially when attempting to purchase exclusive lines such as Gulfstream or Bombardier. Going through an aircraft broker can make buying a used jet relatively painless.

Aircraft brokers have resources and connections available to them which makes procuring an exclusive or nearly new aircraft much easier than going at it alone. They will contact sellers, provide detailed information, procure insurance, and potentially arrange a walk-through of the aircraft.  Most importantly, aircraft brokers can offer you an objective view of each aircraft.  By objective, I mean that brokers do not become “emotionally attached” to an aircraft.  They are able to peruse the various aircraft for sale, and aid the buyer in making an informed investment.

If you are in the market for a used aircraft, you will want to know about the interior configuration, how many potential passengers can be seated without renovation, the long range cruise speed, the cockpit avionics, the size of the engine and the nautical mile range. You will also want to know when it was last serviced and who performed it, as well as, have an aviation mechanic review the aircraft maintenance records and make a positive recommendation. Multi-million dollar purchases, especially for business acquisitions, require a great deal of research and due diligence. Aircraft brokers perform this for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Finally, when choosing an aircraft broker for your next aircraft purchase, make sure you choose a broker with the experience to insure that all of the above is meticulously covered.
