Enjoying the resplendent luxury of owning a private jet offers numerous benefits for the business traveler and their team, whether it’s for planned events or last-minute meetings. Selecting a reputable and accomplished aircraft management company to manage and maintain your private jet is essential, but where do you begin to find the perfect partner?
Many aircraft management companies offer similar services. However, it’s extremely important to take the time to investigate what makes one aircraft management company different from another, carefully weighing the benefits of each to make an informed decision.
“Aircraft owners should begin to evaluate their options by examining the core values of each aircraft management company,” stated Ray Bennett, Jet Linx Vice President of Sales. “Ask several questions about their leadership team and how they interact with other team members. Do they operate with a cohesive management style? Getting to know them and how they treat others will unveil what you can expect as their Aircraft Management client.”
The Jet Linx approach is unique in the aviation industry. As “Your Personal Jet Company,” we take pride in our workplace culture and how our team lives our values – this approach translates to interactions with our valued clients. This unified approach resonates internally and externally, affording aircraft owners the best possible ownership experience through excellence in customer service.
“Owning an aircraft should not feel like you’re running a second small business, so it’s imperative you find an aircraft management companythat strikes the right balance and is experienced with a solid culture and foundation,” Bennett advised. “It’s probably one of the most important decisions you will make.”
In addition to culture, the longevity and experience of the aircraft management companyand their team of professionals should be taken into consideration. Have they had experience managing your type of aircraft? Does their service delivery align with the goals you have set for your aircraft? Are they able to substantiate actionable results? Can they offer transparency and accountability?
As the third largest Part 135 fleet in the United States, Jet Linx works with each client to fully maximize their aircraft’s fullest operational potential, resulting in long-term efficiencies and an improved operating budget. “The size and variety of the Jet Linx fleetqualifies us for volume discounts and we pass along these savings to our Aircraft Management clients,” Bennett divulged. “Aircraft owners should expect full transparency from their aircraft management company when it comes to understanding their expenses and revenue stream. Our state of the art owner reporting platform ensures timely and accurate information related to your private jet.”
The Jet Linx Jet Card program provides aircraft owners a controlled source of revenue through built-in demand – a distinct advantage from other aircraft management companies. As an Aircraft Management client, your aircraft is added to our national fleet, making it available to our local and national base of Jet Card members. Because Jet Linx has ARGUS Platinum, IS-BAO Stage 3, and Wyvern Wingman safety ratings, our fleet remains one of the most sought-after in the national charter marketplace.
“Jet Linx has been providing a personalized approach to private aviation since 1999,” Bennett stated. “We believe no other local or national aircraft management company can deliver the same experience where aircraft owners can take pride in the fact that their aircraft is being managed by some of the most experienced and passionate aviation professionals in the industry. This approach truly sets us apart from other aircraft management companies.”
