Pre-Purchase Inspection

For used aircraft L4T can organise and oversee the conduct of the pre-purchase inspection of an aircraft and undertake a specific audit of aircraft records in order to ensure that the aircraft has been maintained in accordance with manufacturer maintenance programme requirements. Specialist advice on the interpretation of pre-purchase inspection reports and acceptability of discrepancy items by L4T will invariably save the client from acquiring an aircraft with costly maintenance faults.

 

Transaction Closing

The airplane flew great.  Thanks so much for your help.  We could not have done it without you.”

Numerous clients who have used the services of L4T have been impressed by the smooth and untroubled closing of their transaction. The objective of L4T is to make the purchase of an aircraft an enjoyable experience with the removal of ego and confrontation and the replacement with an efficient and rational approach to the experience of acquiring an aircraft.

 

New Aircraft

L4T has extensive connections with the major manufacturers of aircraft (see Manufacturers ) who are generally pleased when they are informed of the involvement of L4T in a transaction as their detailed knowledge and experience will often speed up the process and avoid unnecessary delays in negotiation of irrelevant matters.

The selection of a suitable aircraft is often the most difficult aspect for a client L4T is able to give potential aircraft owners the benefit of its experience in determining which aircraft is most suitable for the requirements of a client. Limitations of budget, typical range of operation, maintenance cost, depreciation considerations, finance restrictions, operational limitations and general capability are all factors which mean that clients can often purchase and aircraft that is not actually suited to the client’s needs; this can lead to a client being disenchanted with the ownership of an aircraft and left with an expensive mistake.
