PJS Consultation has three primary objectives

  1. Determine whether private aviation should have a place in a Principal’s portfolio.

  2. If yes, determine the best private aviation solution for their unique needs.

  3. Produce a plan to navigate the negotiation and contracting of the preferred solution as efficiently and seamlessly as possible.

A typical engagement addresses the following detailed goals:

  • Situation Analysis: the current state of the Principal’s travel, as well as their staff and families.

  • ROI Study: current travel costs vs projected costs/savings of private aviation solutions.

  • Solution Study: private aviation market overview, impact and ROI of each viable solution.

  • Implementation Planning: guidance from solutions negotiation to contracting and quality control.

From the perspective of wealth management professionals, advising clients on how best to purchase private aviation is a significant opportunity.  There are advantages in centralizing purchasing power for a Principal, their families and their businesses that might otherwise be missed.

Finding the right solution can be a daunting task

Outright ownership of an aircraft is a major decision even for experienced private travelers. Short of outright aircraft ownership, private jet travelers have 3 fundamental options: fractional ownership, fixed-rate pricing through a jet card or membership purchase, or variable pricing through on-demand charter.  

And there are many aircraft choices to consider within the marketplace. Identifying the best fit based on typical travel patterns, passenger group size, and amenities is part of the PJS Consultation process.   

For companies with multiple bases and staff members heavily using commercial airlines, a private shuttle program might provide exponential benefits in productivity, employee retention as well as costs savings.  

And confidentiality is hard to quantify but it is a very real benefit of flying privately.

A thorough examination of client needs, including understanding their flexibility with regard to aircraft type, will help determine the best mode of purchase.
