Our founder Jay Taffet is a long-time pilot, and he's parlayed his love for aviation into venture development focused on aircraft acquisition and sales, charter startups, facility builds, and company flight support.
We have won a portfolio of airport concessions for FBO and hangar build projects, and opened new markets for on-demand and scheduled air charter.
We also manage all types of aircraft transactions, specializing in aircraft selection and acquisition.
We believe aircraft acquisition is a venture, just like any startup, and requires a solid foundation of “narrative and numbers” to identify the aircraft opportunity, ownership investment and operating logistics.
We’ve captured the entire acquisition process in a friendly-formatted Excel workbook and data-associated Word-based contract form (for potential Dry-Lease scenarios) we call “The Aircraft Acquisition Venture Model”.
You can preview the model here.
There's a constellation of regulatory and operating nuances associated with aviation ventures, but we've "cracked the code" and can help you navigate the airport requirements, FAA rules and transaction logistics associated with your project.
