Let’s assume you’ve heard of the benefits of using Business Aviation to fulfill your necessary business travel requirements, and you’ve even received some advice on a potential aircraft that would fit your needs – is it time jump in to the market and buy? This article highlights the need to obtain impartial advice in the arena of aircraft acquisition.
Business aircraft are amazing. They are capable of speeds approaching that of sound, range exceeding that of most airliners, and comfort and convenience that make every trip productive and restful. But there are limitations that must be respected and followed.
Business jets provide passengers with a level of safety during takeoff that is not found in the typical turboprop or piston-powered aircraft used in Business Aviation. But the terminology needs some explanation.
Aviation, like most highly technical fields, is dominated by numbers. The pilot must know the aircraft’s operating speeds, its weights, and the fuel required to reach the destination. The mechanic is concerned with safety tolerances, pressures, torques, and a myriad of other values. The aviation manager is responsible for the budget and should know the costs of maintenance, salaries, training, as well as the metrics of personnel management : the pilots, maintenance and support staff.
