Before the process of aircraft, acquisition gets too involved, it is normally prudent to have an indicative offer in principal from a financial institution – if finance is required.
Av8Jet would never recommend you put down payment or deposit on an aircraft that is non-refundable unless you have a full offer of aircraft finance
The decision to buy or lease an aircraft comes down to how it will affect the overall financial and tax situation of the corporation. If a company has liquid cash, then it might be advantageous to buy an aircraft outright.
If you require aircraft finance, it is important that this is dealt with at the beginning of the process as it can take some time to arrange. Av8Jet can assist you every step of the way.
