STEP 1: Understanding the Mission-Purpose of Aircraft

The first step in the Pioneer Jet Program is to thoroughly understand the mission-purpose of the aircraft for the potential buyer. This involves a detailed analysis of various critical factors, including:

  • Range: Determining the typical distances the aircraft will need to cover, whether for regional or international travel.
  • Passenger Capacity (PAX): Assessing the number of passengers the aircraft needs to accommodate regularly.
  • Budget: Establishing a clear budget for both the purchase and ongoing operational costs.
  • Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Regulations: Ensuring compliance with all relevant aviation regulations and standards.
  • Management Solution: Discussing options for managing the aircraft, including crew, maintenance, and operational logistics.

Once these factors are thoroughly discussed and agreed upon, the client signs on to the Pioneer Jet Program, formalizing their commitment and setting the process in motion.
