As an independent global aircraft sales company, Sojourn Aviation provides aircraft acquisition, brokerage, management and sales services and is experienced in the global marketplace. The company has high-level experience with manufacturers, fixed base operators (FBOs), fractional companies and service facilities worldwide so it can support its clientele along every step of the journey to aircraft ownership, from airframe selection to financing to take-off.
“We work with some of the biggest names in aviation to offer customers buying, selling, leasing and operating experience at an unprecedented level,” explains Managing Partner Brad Hatt. “And with a sales and contact network that extends to the four corners of the world, we can do it all on a global scale.”
When it comes to aircraft acquisition, Hatt says Sojourn Aviation offers a total turnkey service with a unique sales process that borders on science. “We start with a consultation that helps us best determine a client’s needs. We then research the marketplace and identify aircraft that fit the bill and work through negotiations to secure the best price. We understand the current and future value of aircraft, so we help our clients acquire and operate the perfect aircraft for their needs. But our services don’t stop there. We’ll help clients find a place to hangar their aircraft, hire a crew to operate it and even find the resources to maintain and manage it.”
When it comes to selling business jets, Sojourn Aviation has the experience to help owners find the right buyer. They conduct a full evaluation of the aircraft and provide in-house research to determine an asking price that pleases both the seller and prospective buyers. With its extensive sales network, Sojourn ensures that the aircraft they sell receive international attention. Once a buyer is found, Sojourn will handle all negotiations through contract signing, even overseeing the pre-purchase inspection.
“Whether a client is buying or selling an aircraft, or just needs help in its operation, we are always prepared to put our network to work for them,” Hatt says. “With partners in the United States, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, we can provide clients with international support. We can also connect them with our trusted finance partners, expert flight crews and the best maintenance teams found worldwide.”
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Sojourn Aviation recently joined the National Aircraft Resale Association (NARA).
“We decided to join NARA because of the association’s current membership list,” Hatt says. “We want to build our relationships with fellow brokers who have a good name in the industry. We expect to build relationships with fellow NARA members that will help us and them as we help mutual clients enter and manage the world of business aviation.”
