Acquisitions and Consultancies

Avia’s involvement in any acquisition of a new or used aircraft ideally begins contemporaneous with the client’s initial curiosity. Of course, Avia can easily enter the process at a later stage. A professional analysis of the budget, the justification, the mission, and a determination of which aircraft meet that mission, is a recommendable first step. Avia is experienced in the authorship of such studies… and the creation of materials appropriate for presentation to management, directors, investors and lending institutions.

Avia's new aircraft acquisition team is well practiced, having completed new jet purchase transactions totaling in the billions of dollars.

An example of the normal progression of events in a pre-owned aircraft acquisition is provided in the following pages. Also included is a graphic overview of the typical workflow associated with a pre-owned corporate jet refit. It illustrates the complexity of such projects… and in turn, hints at why Avia management and design services for refits and new aircraft completions are so beneficial to the client. Avia is an available consultant experienced in the following:
