FlightWorks is not your typical “aircraft management” company. In fact, we don’t call ourselves aircraft managers. We are asset managers, where our decision making is founded in long-term value preservation of your aircraft. The FlightWorks team of seasoned professionals includes talent assembled from the best in the private aviation industry. Our leadership team has over 125 combined years of experience in business aviation.
It’s simple – we believe in transparency. FlightWorks earns money from aircraft management clients only through management fees and charter commissions. There are zero markups on anything. Every penny of our proven procurement strategy is passed onto you without markup. To be clear – we do not mark up pilot training, fuel, third party maintenance, or anything else we procure on behalf of our aircraft management clients.
FlightWorks offers an innovative program that eliminates the need for working capital deposits. Many companies ask for deposits to fund aircraft operations cash flow. Not FlightWorks. Our clients who allow us to charter their aircraft pay no working capital. No capital risk. No worries about losing a large deposit. Just peace of mind knowing you are affiliated with a financially stable partner.
So how can you tell if we are managing your aircraft asset for long-term value preservation? We share intelligent data with our aircraft owners every month that provides insights that no other company provides, including:
