How Should You Assess an Aviation Consultancy Firm?

There are many types of management consultants, but when it comes to Aviation Consulting Services you should demand a firm which has industry leading experience in strategic and advisory services. Aviation consultancy services are essentially centered around capital structuring, operational effectiveness and the creation of brand and equity value. Unlike other industries, this can involve industry knowledge borne only from experience—the value of a long-term leasehold estate, the importance of aviation Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs), or the role of intellectual property in a proprietary repair or manufacturing process. The right aviation consultant can work seamlessly across the aerospace value chain, from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), to the on-airport service provider (FBO, MRO or ACM), to the end user such as a corporate flight department, family office which utilizes corporate aviation or an individual seeking the most efficient form of aviation transportation.


Aviation consultants in an advisory role are usually providing transaction related services including but not limited to the following:

  • Business Valuations & Appraisals
  • Merger & Acquisition Advice
  • Business Planning
  • Capital Structuring and Capital Sourcing


All parts of operational aviation consulting, such as Aircraft Management and Advisory Services, require deeply experienced executives who have previously led organizations through various economic and industry cycles. Operational consulting focus areas include but are not limited to the following:

  • Strategic Consulting for Aviation Service Providers
  • Aviation Consulting for Airport Sponsors
  • Feasibility Studies
  • RFP Preparation & Management
  • Market & Competitive Analysis
  • Aviation IT, CRM and Enterprise Wide Systems Consulting

Many industry consultants also can fulfill the role of professional management, either on a temporary or permanent basis. Aviation FBO Management Services, Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) and Aircraft Charter and Management are core service areas where an objective third party consultant can provide industry leading best practices to aviation companies of varying size.

Global Aviation Infrastructure LLC is a leading aviation management company which provides Fixed Base Operation (FBO), Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO), Aircraft Charter and Management (ACM), and aviation infrastructure management for aviation asset owners, corporations, airport sponsors, private equity firms, family offices and financial institutions.
