Welcome to My Jet Manager’s first ever blog post! If you’re here, it’s safe to assume that you want to know a little more about what My Jet Manager does and more specifically what we can do to help you. This blog will be a place where you can find overviews of completed projects that range anywhere from international exports to plain ol’ aircraft management (which if you’ve ever actually tried to manage an airplane, be it your own or someone else’s, you know it is never just “plain ol’” anything!) and maybe some “what’s new in the world of aviation” to change it up a bit.
In honor of this being our very first post, I want to give you an example of exactly what we do as it pertains to private jet management. It is certainly NOT like anything you’ve ever experienced with a charter service and we are also not one of those companies you pay every month and all you ever get is a voice mail box. What we promise is continual, CUSTOM support and advice focused on YOU and your specific needs.
Let’s take a look at a Bombardier Challenger 601-3A ER that My Jet Manager took care of for one owner from the initial purchase to final sale. Under a monthly fee basis My Jet Manager provided the following services:
– Pre-purchase Oversight
– Aircraft Records Review/Organization
– Pilot Services
– Flight Attendant Services
– HAPP/MSP Enrollment and Reporting
– CAMP Reporting and Updating
– Maintenance Oversight
Our Director of Special Projects, Bob LeBlanc, flew out personally to supervise the pre-purchase and subsequent maintenance required by the new owner at the time of sale. The owner had determined during the pre-purchase process that he would want to completely replace the interior once the sale was complete. My Jet Manager provided maintenance oversight for the process, making sure the aircraft went from smurf blue:
to cream of the crop:
During the purchasing process, the owner realized he not only needed professional management for his private jet, he needed to staff it. Since this customer only required occasional flight crews, My Jet Manager helped find him a qualified pilot and co-pilot to work on-call, as well as qualified flight attendants when required.
Once the aircraft sale was completed, the records (logbooks, CAMP runs, maintenance records, etc) were shipped to our Lakeland, Florida location for review and organization. We were able to take these aircraft records:
and turn them into an organized set of categorized records.
During the entire time the customer owned his private jet, My Jet Manager provided management of the Computerized Aircraft Maintenance System (CAMP) records, the Honeywell MSP reporting for the APU, and all record-keeping for any scheduled or non-scheduled maintenance required. We also enrolled him in programs such as Honeywell Avionics Protection Program (HAPP), applied for his FCC Radio Operator’s Permit, and helped him apply for and obtain the RVSM Certification for his Challenger 601.
Once the customer was ready to sell his private jet, My Jet Manager was able to pass the jet along to a well-qualified aviation lawyer and aircraft broker, with immaculate records, up-to-date certifications and insurance programs, and in much better condition than when he originally purchased the aircraft.
Each private jet management story is different, but the reality of safe and efficient management requires unique customization to ensure that your standards and requirements are not just met, but constantly exceeded.
