Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation announced today the launch of CAPA Aircraft Advisory, India’s first professional end-to-end aircraft acquisition service. This unique solution is designed to de-mystify the process of selecting and acquiring, an aircraft for private or general use, be it a business jet, a turboprop or a helicopter. “Today, India has the fourth highest number of firm orders for business jets and jetliners in the world. And over the next five years, India will enter the ranks of the top 10 business and general aviation markets in the world. This projected scale and sophistication calls for a service such as CAPA Aircraft Advisory,” stated Peter Harbison, Executive Chairman.
The service has been designed keeping in mind that most operators of private aircraft are not from the aviation industry. For such companies, the acquisition or disposal of an aircraft is unfamiliar territory and lies outside their core expertise.
Processing the options available in terms of mission capabilities, interiors, support, aircraft management, training, regulatory approvals, finance and structuring can be a bewildering exercise. And the potential for selecting an inappropriate aircraft or on unfavourable terms is high. CAPA Aircraft Advisory provides aircraft buyers with the knowledge and confidence to make the right decisions.
“Our ability to combine a deep understanding of Indian aviation, detailed knowledge of aircraft operations, access to the world’s leading database on aircraft transactions and valuations and a customised approach to understanding each client’s specific requirements, means that CAPA Aircraft Advisory is unrivalled in the market in bringing together every element necessary to provide a genuine solution for our clients. A further significant differentiator lies in the level of transparency and professionalism in our delivery,” added Mr Harbison.
