As a corporate flight department, you’re working to maximize cost efficiency while managing crews and aircraft, scheduling maintenance and repairs, and ensuring a wide variety of standards and compliances are met. On top of all that, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic means safety and security—already the highest priorities for those using business aircraft—are more important than ever. Making sure you get the best out of your existing assets can be quite a challenge, especially in uncertain times. One solution is to evolve and modernize your business travel operation by adding a supplemental private aviation partner.
ADJUSTING YOUR CORPORATE FLIGHT DEPARTMENT POST-COVID
The challenges of the past year have put a renewed focus on corporate flight departments to reassess and reimagine their value, and C-suite leadership is looking diligently to ensure that costs are optimized for a post-pandemic world. As Gray Stone Advisors principal James Lara told an NBAA webinar last year, “Things have changed in the aviation community … An aviation leader has to understand what the company’s post-COVID organization looks like, and the flight department’s reason for being. Be a fountain of ideas and suggestions.”
Aviation Personnel International CEO Sheryl Barden reminds that it is important to show company leadership that the value of the corporate flight department lies in ensuring company continuity. A supplemental private aviation partner will give your company more ways to guarantee that continuity of business.
SIX REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD ADD A SUPPLEMENTAL LIFT OPTION
1. A RELIABLE SECOND SOURCE IS A BUSINESS NECESSITY
Your private jets will need downtime to keep them at optimal performance levels, but you’ll have peace of mind knowing your supplemental private flight department is at the ready with a supplemental and suitable aircraft.
2. ENSURE UNPARALLELED, SEAMLESS ACCESS
The private jets you need to supplement your corporate flight department can be available with as little as eight hours’ notice, giving you more opportunities to do in-person business.
3. BE READY TO RESPOND TO INEVITABLE INTERRUPTIONS
Having an on-demand, supplemental business jet option means you have a solution for any obstacles that may come up. Never let issues like aircraft maintenance, dual usage, or pilot sickness disrupt your business again.
4. HAVE THE RIGHT AIRCRAFT FOR THE JOB EVERY TIME
A supplemental private flight department partner will provide the optimal aircraft that fit your specific missions. Gain access to a wide variety of aircraft—from light jets for short trips to heavy jets for coast-to-coast or international travel.
5. KEEP YOUR CORPORATE FLIGHT DEPARTMENT BUDGET ON TRACK
“Dead heading,” or flying your aircraft empty, is not only inefficient, but can cost you more—make sure your business travel planning is as smart and efficient as possible.
6. CREATE AN OPTIMAL FLIGHT PLAN
Adapt your corporate flight department to operate at maximum efficiency by finding a supplemental private aviation partner that enables you to fly as much or as little as you need.
