Triangle Aircraft Services
The Sky is Yours
You have taken delivery of your new aircraft and are now considering choosing an aircraft management company to oversee the operation of your asset. By reviewing various companies offering aircraft management services, it becomes apparent that there are many significant factors and issues that need to be considered during the selection process. While these considerations can be vast and unique, our aim at Triangle Aircraft Services is to ensure our clients are partnered with the correct management company, that will incorporate and aim to achieve our client’s aviation goals and objectives throughout the management of their aircraft.
While there are factors to be considered by all aircraft owners, such as safety and operational experience, each aircraft owner will have a different set of factors unique to them.
As an absolute minimum, our client owner’s safety expectations should be met. What is the management company’s safety record? Has a Safety Management System (SMS) been implemented? Are there routine in-house or independent audits performed on the operation? Are audits observed and do they ensure a positive change?
What is the level of experience of the company and team managing your aircraft? Have they had experience managing your type of aircraft? Do they have established relationships with the necessary suppliers to support your aircraft operational requirements?
Aircraft Management Fees and Group Fleet Discounts
Is the company leveraging all possible to secure competitive fuel rates? Is fuel procurement part of a group purchase?
Required Routes and Airports
Will the management operational procedures support or restrict take-off and landing into your required airports?
Crew Duty Limitations
Will you expect to frequently travel longer flights or multiple flights in one day? Will the management company support your flight pattern and duration requirements?
Ownership & Management Structure
Is the preferred management company able to support your desired aircraft ownership structure?
Crew Service Delivery Input
Whether our owner clients wish to engage directly with the crew of the aircraft or prefer to direct all operational communication through a dedicated operations team, it is essential that the management company structure and resource can support your request.
If you choose to release your aircraft into the charter market in quieter times of usage, the management company must demonstrate a thorough awareness of the charter market and ensure your charter expectations are met.
Once the aircraft has been placed with the most appropriate management company, we continue to represent our aircraft owners’ interest throughout, supported by our in-depth knowledge and experience to drive the aviation goals you wish to achieve.
