personalized aircraft management

The laser focus on safety of a dedicated aircraft management company is nearly impossible to achieve with an internal flight department. Safety and compliance are at the core of every action and decision surrounding the aircraft operation.

COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION:

  • Management of Maintenance. Every maintenance event, every cockpit update, all monitored and managed for you, as directed by an in-house Director of Maintenance.
  • Worldwide Operational Scheduling. Professional, in-house flight planning and dispatch. Every detail covered, including aircraft performance, weather, NOTAMs, permits, customs, ground services, and fuel.
  • Crew Provisioning. Worldwide crew placement for short or long-term positions, with flight standards, payroll, benefits, and tax administration all covered.
  • Financial Accounting & Reporting. Whether a small or large operation, ensure you have the right records for the right operations with audit trails.

THE SHEPHERD AERO DIFFERENCE:

  • Safety. The laser focus on safety of a dedicated aircraft management company is nearly impossible to achieve with an internal flight department. Safety and compliance are at the core of every action and decision surrounding the aircraft operation.
  • Control Expenses. With our management fees less than 10% of the total cost of operating the aircraft, financial control, executed by a skilled operator, should save you more than you spend on the management service itself. We carefully balance flight operational needs with necessary purchases to save you money.
  • Maintenance Control & Planning. Jet aircraft are subject to dozens of separate inspections and life limitation requirements. Without guidance it is easy to inadvertently end up in violation. Effective aircraft management service can save you downtime and cost of maintenance through the professional supervision of scheduled maintenance tasks, and the use of industry connections.
