Why do we only work with quality aircraft operators?
The answer is simple: Because it’s the right thing to do. Flying private is not only a way of life, but a “tool of trust” that clients place within their respective providers to ensure traveling from point A to point B is accomplished with the utmost safety and professionalism. This perspective must be taken seriously, but for many providers, it’s a simple case of the “dollar” over the value of the service. For example, if you were traveling across the country from New York to California, would you take your family and children and drive in a car that was almost 20 years old? Or would you drive in a car that was new and equipped with all the modern and up-to-date amenities on board? We already know your answer to our question, but more often than none, people are misguided and choose the wrong aircraft and carrier for the mission. One of the major reasons is over price. Here’s our point: If you buy a Toyota for $5,000 less compared to a Mercedes Benz, then your logic is not there. The only difference with private aviation is that you are 40,000 ft. in the air aboard metal and compared to being in a car on the ground. The margin for error in the sky is much slimmer than that of being on the ground.
The price difference between old aircraft with sub par aircraft operators compared to new aircraft with quality aircraft operators is minimal, but often, clients do not even have the opportunity to see that difference because their provider is only offering the cheapest aircraft option for the mission. This philosophy is the typical “boiler room” broker mentality. Buy low and sell high and who cares what the effect it has on the client. As long as the “boiler room” brokers have your money, in their mind, it’s a win-win for them.
Be smart, fly right. Use new aircraft and work with top providers who put your quality of life first before making a profit. There is no substitute.
