One option to consider saving on costs is buying used airplanes instead of new ones. Unlike auto and truck manufactures, business aircraft builders do not churn out new models in short intervals. An older plane may not only still have the most updated features but can also frequently be upgraded following acquisition. Additionally, if you purchase a used business aircraft through reputable dealers like Holstein Aviation, you can be assured that the maintenance history has been thoroughly vetted by technical specialists, aircraft directives that may have been issued by the FAA have been complied with, and if there are any manufacturer services bulletins have been issued, those have been completed. These aviation professionals can also assist you in obtaining the right financing for your purchase.

Most travelers seek a far-off place where they can unwind away from the daily hustle and bustle. What one would call a “far-off place”, however, may not be far away enough for others. As Planet Green’s Julia Austin notes in an article for Care2.com, there are spots outside the domain of the so-called “conventional traveler” — the Earth’s most remote holiday destinations reachable only through days of off-road travel, or thru long boat rides. The best way to get to these remote destinations would almost always be in comfortable private jets, which can take one virtually any place, at any time — perfect for the weary business person, their family and even friends, who needs a getaway in the truest sense.

By flying in a Phenom 300, for example, busy travelers can relax, work, or conduct meeting enroute while knowing they’ll reach their destination on time. Those who simply want to travel away via a secure means or away from competitors’ eyes can also benefit from having this fast-moving private aircraft. Of course, there’s no question that the Phenom 300, or any other private jet for sale, is a significant investment. Therefore, it’s important for owners to have their aircraft insured, and the associated operating costs covered. Luckily, reputable jet brokerages such as Holstein Aviation, can guide their clients through the myriad leasing and financing programs available, putting one of the best private jets in the world within easier reach.

The aircraft registration number, often called the tail number, is to civil aircraft as a license plate is to land vehicles. It can help you buy a plane wisely. An article in Aerospaceweb.org provides detailed information about aircraft registration numbers. The need for this type of civil aircraft identification came out of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. The intent of these gatherings was to create an international alliance for regulating civil aircraft use. This need arose primarily as nations were starting to expand their civilian aircraft fleets. Among the agreements formed by the global aviation community was the systematic way of aircraft registration and identification, as governed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
