Pilots are required to attend training, multiple times throughout a year to remain proficient on aircraft systems and emergency procedures. “We can achieve discounts on crew training in the range of thousands of dollars for each training event,” says Martin. “Over time, these savings add up and make a difference for our clients,”

CREW RETENTION

Crew retention is also an area that a management company helps aircraft owners save. Hummingbird carefully vets’ pilots and cabin attendants; meticulously choosing only the best and most well suited to be part of an aircraft owner’s in-flight team.

CREW UTILIZATION

When management companies have multiple airframes of the same type within their fleet, lateral use of flight crews is also possible. For example, if a private jet management company operates three Gulfstream G550s, there is the option to rotate the flight crews between the aircraft if necessary. This helps to eliminate the need for outside contract pilots in the instances when full-time crew members are unavailable.
