Aircraft Acquisition Process

Summit Aviation’s sales team utilizes a three-phase aircraft acquisition process to ensure transactions are as easy and efficient as possible for our clients

Phase One:

We begin with a simple conversation to evaluate your needs in order to provide you with personalized care and attention throughout the acquisition process. We eliminate the need for intensive research on your end by reviewing the existing market and preparing value assessments comparing different prospective aircraft. Based on this research, we will work as a team to identify the aircraft type and model that best fits your specific needs. Our team will assist you in identifying potential tax incentives and determining insurance needs, as well as assist with securing financing.

Phase Two:

Once the right aircraft is identified, located and approved by you, our team will move to Phase Two of the acquisition process. Phase 2 begins with a market evaluation of the selected aircraft by the Summit team. Then we coordinate a review of the maintenance history logbooks, and prepare the purchase/lease offer. Summit Aviation’s team will manage the transfer of funds to escrow, submit a purchase offer, and negotiate the on-going terms of the agreement.

Phase Three:

In the final stage, the Summit sales team will coordinate and monitor the pre-purchase inspection and negotiate any maintenance that requires resolution. We will manage the aircraft acceptance, closing and delivery. In our ongoing relationship, we also assist in arranging aircraft storage and maintenance support.

Not only will an expert team save you valuable time, there are often opportunities to secure a lower price for your desired aircraft through skilled negotiating. We will help safeguard you from the many pitfalls of a poorly informed or managed purchase. Along with the added benefit of a Certified Aircraft Appraiser on staff, your search is in the most capable hands from start through to flying in the aircraft of your dreams!
