Aircraft Management is the supervision of the flying, maintaining, housing and use of aircraft. To the unfamiliar it may might seem simple, however, there are a litany of items that must be addressed and handled on a regular basis to ensure safety in addition to regulatory compliance.
Aviation and Aircraft Management is more than just the aircraft acquisition and piloting, those are merely steps in the use of business aviation. Aircraft Management done right is an increasingly sophisticated and technical field that requires exacting and constant refinement of skills.
Most duties are the responsibility of a Director of Flight Operations. Do you want to employ this staff or do you want someone else to handle these issues for you? Aircraft Management can be done internally or sub-contracted out but finding answers has proven to be difficult to those unfamiliar with demands of the modern aviation users. Some of the basic topics that any good aircraft manager will ensure you are familiar with are:
- Safe Operation of Aircraft
- Financial Management and Control
- Staffing & Training of Flight Department Personnel
- Documentation and Support Services
- Setting Up Shop
