Whether you fly 50 or 150 hours a year, owning your own plane can be one of the best financial decisions you’ll ever make. Like other valuable assets, aircraft ownership can be a shrewd investment for those who expect significant return on their investments. In fact, many owners tell us that, once they understood the economies of scale and value proposition, they wished they had purchased sooner.
Our team will take you through a discernment process that explores the many aspects of private ownership. We’ll analyze factors such as anticipated flight frequency, budget, destinations, desired craft capacity and amenities, business vs. leisure, and a host of other personal preferences to deliver a customized recommendation that’s fully compatible with your goals.
We always encourage our buyers to focus on what matters most. Looks, age and brand are typically less important than the aircraft’s maintenance pedigree, usage, prior ownership and home country. By focusing on the essential aspects of an aircraft, great buying opportunities await. We are experienced enough to know that the right purchase, brokered by the right charter company with a highly experienced in-house maintenance team, means you can generally own your own jet for as little as 20% of the cost of chartering an equivalent aircraft.
Many of our buyers say they like the fact that the cost of buying a private jet has remained relatively stable, despite increased demand. Others like the tax benefits: a 2018 tax law includes a provision for “bonus depreciation” which allows some buyers to write off 100% of their investment in the first year of ownership. Still others love the fact that an aircraft purchased and housed in New York State incurs no sales tax. Let us help you find your reasons to buy.
