Corporations, governments and individuals around the world use business aviation for a wide variety of missions - ranging from important meetings to humanitarian projects to decision-making summits. They all share a common need, no matter their industry: business without limits. They want control over their schedules, with safe, flexible access to everywhere they need to go, from the busiest airports in the world to the shortest runways that are inaccessible to commercial airliners.
The versatility and flexibility of business aviation enables a wide range of solutions for all types of private aircraft use. The options at the beck and call of business jet travelers have never been as efficient, flexible or luxuriant. The first step to understanding if business aviation is right for you or your company is to evaluate your needs. Once you have a handle on your business travel objectives, you can begin to compare your options.
Bombardier Business Aircraft offers its customers a legacy of exceptional achievement and the widest range of private aircraft in the industry. Three families of ultra-performance aircraft: Learjet, Challenger and Global come together under the unmistakable Bombardier brand. Our portfolio of aircraft includes the first ever business aircraft brand and, today, extends to the most luxurious jet publicly available.
EVALUATING YOUR TRAVEL NEEDS
With numerous ways to experience business aviation, how can you best evaluate what makes the most sense for you?
The following framework is provided to help you understand the issues, organize your thoughts and ask the right questions as you consider your needs.
BENEFITS OF OWNERSHIP
In the simplest terms, business jets take you where you want to go, when you want to go, in comfort and in style. The ultimate impact on your business and your life, however, can bring you richer, deeper benefits that can maximize your efficiency and expand your opportunities.
OWNING A BUSINESS JET CAN ENHANCE:
You set your own schedule; you’re not tied to an airline’s idea of good scheduling. Departure is at your convenience because your jet is waiting for you on the tarmac. There’s no baggage claim, no ticket counters, no airport crowds, no waiting.
You’re not subjected to system-wide delays and missed connections. There’s no more hunting for direct flights from a dwindling supply. You can depart from an airport closer to home, land closer to your destination, and use smaller airports. And you’ll say goodbye to waiting in lines and being subjected to ever-changing airport security screenings.
Jet ownership gives you the comfort and privacy you need to be productive. You gain an office in the air, and a conference room that is always available. You skip the delays, headaches and poor service that wear you out and keep you from being your best.
Commercial airline ticket prices continue to rise. The time and productivity losses from commercial flights have an impact on your ability to move as quickly as your business does. The ability to be nimble and responsive to business challenges and opportunities is priceless. Owning your own jet also means that more airports are open to you, expanding your ability to pursue business in areas that may have been difficult to access previously.
CONTINUOUS DEDICATION TO EXCELLENCE
When examining all your business aviation possibilities, you may wish to explore the advantages of a pre-owned aircraft. From a lower price of entry to getting your jet in the sky faster, pre-owned can be an excellent value and smart choice.
Our pre-owned sales team is involved with inspecting and maintaining every pre-owned aircraft. And we make purchasing simple: our multi-disciplinary team offers technical support, market research, training and financing assistance.
We offer an optional, comprehensive resale package that typically includes:
- Warranty coverage
- Engine maintenance programs to protect your investment
- Program and service packages, such as factory training for your pilots and mechanics
- Financing assistance
Whether you are buying, selling or trading in your aircraft, Bombardier’s team of pre-owned aircraft experts are a great resource to consider.
