Buying and Selling Corporate and General Use Aircraft

Attorney Eric Lewin co-authored “Buying and Selling Corporate and General Use Aircraft,” a first-edition guide published in March 2023 by the Sales and Acquisitions Committee of the Associate Member Advisory Council to European Business Aviation Association (EBAA).

“Whether you are buying or selling an aircraft, there is nothing more satisfying than a good deal: A smooth, timely transaction leaving both parties happy. It is rare, however, that good deals are sitting around waiting to be transacted. Hard work, combined with proper due diligence and transparency resulting in peace of mind for buyers and sellers that the deal is fair, and the right expertise facilitate good deals.

That is why this guide advocates for buyers and sellers to hire a knowledgeable and experienced team of aviation transaction specialists who can keep a transaction moving forward while filtering, organizing, and resolving issues as they arise. These teams should consist of subject matter experts where an experienced, reputable aircraft transaction broker is the linchpin to achieve success.

Aircraft transactions are fluid and multifaceted. Buyers and sellers need to consider multiple issues, typically in parallel. Frequently, the resolution of one issue will usually impact the resolution of other issues.”
