You’ve probably heard at one time or another that a friend, colleague, or possibly a competitor are using business aircraft. On the surface, it may seem like a lavish expense; something unnecessary that’s likely driven by ego or status. In some cases, that’s true but many companies have learned that business aircraft are time machines that offer a unique competitive advantage.
Consider your calendar for the next month. If a client called and said that they were having trouble with one of your products, how challenging would it be to physically send members of your team to resolve their issue? How would their absence impact the work you already had scheduled and how quickly could they hope to be on site? What would it mean to your client if your team members could leave that afternoon and arrive on site within a few hours? Can your competitor offer that?
When we see movie stars and billionaires traveling on giant private jets across oceans and continents it seems out of reach. But the truth is, business aircraft come in all shapes and sizes and an experienced management company will help you find the one that matches your mission and budget.
So do you need a business aircraft? Well that depends, can you afford to be without one?
