How We Save You Money
What's most expensive?
What’s the most expensive aspect of owning a jet? Surprisingly, it’s not the pilots, fuel or operation of the airplane. Over time, maintenance is the most expensive.
Blue Skies Aviation can change that for you. That’s because we know what to look for, and we work with the pilots, engineers and flight crew to minimize your expenses. For example, did you know that reduced-thrust takeoffs save engine life? Or that consistently using runway length instead of excessive braking increases the lifespan of brakes (one of the most expensive components on larger jets ) by several months? Adjustments like these reduce the cost per hour to the company substantially.
Maintenance organizations are notorious for seeing owners of corporate and private jets as “fat cats” that won’t mind spending a few hundred more here or there. If you, or the person charged with scheduling the maintenance, do not have intimate knowledge of the aircraft or of aircraft maintenance, you’re at their mercy.
Doing things more economically
Small enough to attend to the details
As experienced pilots and aircraft maintenance technicians on a wide variety of aircraft, we know the points of maintenance that can be negotiated and those that can’t; we know details that make things flow a little more smoothly or make things slightly more cost-effective. We know the arguments and the counter-arguments. We know enough to question and are experienced enough to know the role that each of the components plays. Blue Skies Aviation’s benefit lies in being small; we are able to take the time to attend to this level of detail. We make sure the work done is necessary and the bill that is paid realistic and accurate. The financial impact can be huge.
