As we wrap up a record Q2 for sales at LMA, we are seeing continued optimism in the light aircraft markets. JetNet IQ just released a survey in late June showing most business aircraft operators believe the current market cycle is past the low point. Our own sales experience over the last quarter jives with this sentiment, as our units sold were a record 46 sales for the quarter. Inventories of some of the most popular models of aircraft are now at a third of the inventory of this time last year. The shrinking inventory has us returning to international markets again to find acquisition opportunities.

Contributing to the increased sales activity is the strong appetite of aircraft finance lenders for new loans. Lone Mountain Aircraft Finance has new finance offerings and competitive rates, and is proving to be a valuable resource for our clients.

Beginning in May of this year, Lone Mountain began a new model for providing detailed market data to aircraft owners. The model has been well received, and we are expanding this offering to all owners of turboprops and light jets. If you are an aircraft owner and interested in receiving our market reports, you can sign up on our website or via email at info@lonemtn.com.

Here is a quick look at what else is new:

Current Market Acquisitions: Lone Mountain is currently acquiring a King Air 350i, Phenom 100, Phenom 300, and Piper Meridian or M500 for qualified clients. Please let us know if you are considering selling or know of an available aircraft.

Vision Jet Positions: We have sold four more Vision Jet positions in Q2 of 2018 and are now selling positions that deliver in 2019. We have positions delivering as early as Q3 of 2019 with three delivery positions remaining for next year. Cirrus just delivered Vision Jet serial #54, and pilots are reporting a great customer experience and support from Cirrus. We expect Cirrus to build a total of 50 Vision Jets in 2018 and approximately 65 in 2019. On the training front, the first type-rating class offered at the new Vision Training Center in Knoxville will be held in July 2018 as training moves from In-Aircraft to simulator-based training.

Beginning his business in his parents’ basement, 20-year-old Bryan Currier was dedicated to developing a different type of IT company – one that not only provided exceptional service, but also was highly personalized, understanding clients’ individual business needs. Seventeen years later that dedication remains.

As the President and Founder of Advantage Technologies, headquartered in Chesterfield, Mich., Bryan now leads his team from his home in Franklin, Tenn., in serving more than 600 clients across seven states. While the number of clients has increased and expanded geographically, Bryan’s desire to retain face-to-face connections has stayed consistent, making travel an essential component to hisoperations.

“My job has morphed from doing sales directly with clients to now working with my sales team,” said Bryan. “The aircraft enables to me to be there to assist my team in all of our markets when needed.”

Bryan purchased his first plane in 2001 when he realized his business’ growth required more flexible travel options than airline services provided. Starting with a Grumman Yankee, a light two-seat aircraft, Bryan quickly saw the benefits of owning his own plane. As the business grew, so did Bryan’s model of aircraft. Seven planes later, he currently owns a Piper Malibu Meridian, a turboprop single-engine plane with a total capacity of six people. He also has his eyes on a Citation Mustang, the next step up from the turboprop. 

“The benefits of owning my own aircraft continues to prove itself invaluable,” said Bryan. “For example, Wednesday night I got an email requesting a short notice meeting on Thursday morning in Indiana. Without the airplane, my local consultant would have been on his own and in over his head. Because of the flexibility offered by the aircraft, I was able to fly in to assist him and then make it to Michigan in time for my afternoon meeting.”

According to Bryan, many business owners would benefit from owning an aircraft, and the expenses aren’t as high as expected when considering the implications.

“When you calculate the amount of time spent waiting on commercial airline flights, the lack of flexibility airlines provide which often causes the need to stay overnight, and the amount of time lost with family due to travel, owning an aircraft is a no-brainer to me,” said Bryan. “My productivity is higher and my time is maximized.”

With four children, family time is premium to Bryan. He also enjoys the ability to take his family with him on trips that require traveling for several days.

Our team at Lone Mountain loves seeing our clients grow their business while balancing their home lives. Have you considered the benefits of aircraft ownership? For more information, contact Mark Rogers.
