JetBrokers: Ready for Another 25 Years!

Sunrise The Next 25 Years

JetBrokers’ President, Tom Crowell Jr., explains “JetBrokers continues to be one of the world’s largest independent, professional aircraft brokers firms with offices located in the United States, United Kingdom and Switzerland.”

Tom says, “The industry is slowly changing. Originally aircraft brokers were ‘information brokers.’ Now we manage the process – connecting buyers and sellers, negotiating, qualifying buyers and determining the likelihood of a deal closing.”

Building solid relationships – both locally and globally – is part of JetBrokers’ corporate ethos. Our sales executives are active leaders and supporters of local and national business aviation associations, aviation-related nonprofit organizations, flight museums and aviation events. JetBrokers’ culture is built on relationships, sharing our expertise and giving back to our communities.

Vice President Jeremy Cox, says that the location of JetBrokers’ offices is secondary, “People buy from people. Our office locations are dependent on finding the right individual who will represent JetBrokers’ way of doing things with the highest possible professional conduct and unwavering ethics.”

JetBrokers focuses on all executive aircraft whether it’s a light jet, a long-range jet, a turboprop or a VIP-configured airliner. We help our clients buy and sell aircraft. Tom says, “JetBrokers aircraft sales experts have regularly stood shoulder to shoulder with our clients to purchase future delivery positions on new aircraft.”

Jeremy added, “We are truly a global company. Our local representatives have a deep understanding of certification and registration requirements. To obtain the best value for an aircraft, we need to understand the rules in different countries.”

Cox, a Senior Certified Aircraft Appraiser and Certified Buyer’s Agent (NSCA), added “JetBrokers works closely with our international sales team by sharing best practices in marketing, research and valuation methods. In this rapidly changing market, it is highly important for our clients to provide an accurate valuation when buying or selling an aircraft. JetBrokers knows aircraft values inside-out!”

Tom emphasizes, “At JetBrokers, we perform due diligence when we take a listing. We show up in person, at every stage of the game. We know first-hand what we’re selling We review the records, we oversee the pre-buy; we show up at closing.”

“JetBrokers is unique in the industry,” Crowell added, “in that we are present during showings and demonstration flight, as well as the pre-purchase inspection, to ensure our clients’ interests are protected.”

How important is expert due diligence? JetBrokers has over 10,000 notes on airplanes. Our sales and marketing experts evaluate aircraft values using internal research that evaluates aircraft that may be coming on the market soon as well as public information about the market. You can change an N-number, but you can’t change the serial number.

Knowing the airplane is a key part of knowing the right price. Knowing the market is the other part, and JetBrokers stays on top of the market, analyzing all the key factors, including the logs, the type’s history and current popularity, worldwide inventory, and registry.

Our 25 years of experience, expertise, and knowledge of business aircraft and their market values, is what our clients buy when they hire JetBrokers to buy or sell their aircraft. JetBrokers’ integrity, expertise and exceptional service keeps our clients coming back to us repeatedly, whenever they buy or sell an aircraft.

A European Whirlwind Hunt

I was again on the hunt for a decent, ‘no issues’ BAe146 for a great client. I left on Saturday, October 21 bound for Bucharest, Romania. I landed in Bucharest around 6PM local, on Sunday night, by way of St. Louis, Detroit, and Amsterdam.

Greetings to my Blog Reader’s. In my seat headed to Bucharest from Amsterdam. I don’t look too bad for the wear, after 17 hours of travel.

Rainy Amsterdam

Hello Bucharest! Arrival into the Henri Coanda International Airport

The views from my Hotel Room

We spent Monday, and Tuesday at Romaero, at the Baneasa International Airport, across from the hotel, auditing this behemoth:

Wednesday, and Thursday we made a quick dash over to the UK to visit a CAMO located at the Biggin Hill Airport. If you need a darn-fine CAMO in Europe, I suggest that you look no further than Mike, and his staff; true professionals:

Terrific view of the London Eye, Parliament, and the Thames; arriving into London – Heathrow on a Tarom A320.

Friday I cam home, and yes, it was still raining in Amsterdam.

Castles and Kings

Recently I travelled to the United Kingdom to audit for purchase, a charter configured BAe146-200. Unfortunately the aircraft did not pass muster for my client, so the last day there became a ‘free’ day which was used to visit Warwick Castle.

Next week I will be in the land of the ‘legendary Count Dracula’, auditing another BAe146 for purchase. More images shall follow later.
