How do I manage an aircraft sale and purchase transaction?

Martyn Fiddler Aviation see a lot of valuable aircraft transactions. Once you have decided which aircraft you want to buy (or sell) the process of acquiring or disposing of a valuable aircraft has a lot of variables associated with it regardless of whether the aircraft is new or pre-owned. A purchase will likely involve some, if not all, of the following:

  • Specification
  • Pre-purchase inspection
  • Acceptance flights
  • Delivery location choice and ground handling
  • Delivery arrangements
  • Crewing
  • Ownership holding options
  • Registration
  • Technical and maintenance assistance
  • Financing
  • Payment arrangements
  • Escrow
  • Tax
  • Insurance
  • On-going management and operation

All of these matters and more need to be decided upon before a successful sale and purchase can be signed, sealed and delivered. There are not many people who have the skills to marshal all of these components so that they work with each other at the right time and in the right place. Failure to get these disparate arrangements right first time will likely result in delays and unnecessary expense – and no one wants delays and unnecessary expenses.

We at Martyn Fiddler Aviation can provide a seller, or more likely a buyer, with a transaction management service to manage the complexity of an aircraft sale and purchase. Speak to Martin Kennaugh, Director of Aviation on +44 777 642 or email to find out more.
