Management Company Match – ensuring the right fit

If you wish to take advantage of the benefits provided by an aircraft management company, it is important to select the one that best meets your needs and requirements. It sounds obvious but is frequently not done. There are wide variations in the capabilities and philosophies of the available choices. The best way to ensure success is to clearly identify the criteria that are most relevant to your situation and use those criteria as the basis for your decision. We help you do this so you make the right choice for your unique needs. Our program involves several steps:

Needs Analysis

  • We utilize our needs analysis checklist to identify the key attributes that your management company should possess
  • If you require specialized professional expertise in aviation tax, regulatory, insurance, financing or aircraft acquisition, we can refer you to qualified individuals who compliment our efforts

Request for Proposal

  • We prepare a customized request for proposal (RFP) based on the results of the needs analysis
  • We use our industry experience to send the RFP to management company candidates that are most likely to match up well with your required needs
  • We review and summarize the RFP responses for you and recommend which candidate companies to move to the interview phase
  • We conduct the interviews with your involvement to identify the best fit candidate

Favorable Contract Terms

  • We work with your aviation attorney to negotiate the contract terms with the chosen management company
  • We draw upon our decades of management company experience to help you obtain the most favorable terms

Management Company Transition

  • We coordinate the transition between you and the management company to make the startup as smooth as possible

Ongoing Oversight

  • Management company relationships work best when there is a close involvement between the aircraft owner or their representative and the manager of the aircraft. We provide this service to help ensure the contract terms are being complied with and the service level is satisfactory on an ongoing basis.
