Delivering End-To-End Aircraft Investment And Management Support
From pre-lease prospect identification to lease end extension, renewal or exit, IBA's Asset Management and Advisory teams partner with clients to deliver wide-ranging aircraft investment and management services. We can help with diverse activities including purchase due-diligence and lease contract negotiation, valuations, planned and unplanned maintenance, financial and legal processes, records management and aircraft and lease remarketing to ensure optimal outcomes.
Backed by InsightIQ intelligence and with abundant experience of aviation assets and leases, we supply effective business-critical management services to secure and develop clients' assets.
Support includes navigation of financial and legal processes, operating scheduled and ad-hoc maintenance events, overseeing and exploring aircraft utilisation and trends, controlling maintenance costs and maintenance fund administration.
We exploit our knowledge of aviation contracts to ensure lease maintenance obligations are fulfilled by developing comprehensive maintenance planning documents (MPDs). Underwriting the requirements of lease terms, such MPDs lay down clear, timetabled procedures for lease collection including rent, reserves, deposits and, if appropriate, letters of credit.
We also monitor and analyse aircraft maintenance and utilisation data to ensure assets are operated and cared for by lessees in compliance with contract terms. Our aircraft records management facilities furnish clients with maintenance, service, operational and storage documentation that guarantees full traceability and accountability.
Such diligence is essential to preserve evidence of compliance with airworthiness directives or safety notices and supports asset values during aircraft redeliveries, repossessions and remarketing activity.
IBA's Maintenance and Cost Forecasting Solution equips clients with essential clarity of focus on aircraft maintenance reserves, events and costs to give total visibility of a portfolio's aviation assets. Empowered by accurate forecasting capabilities, clients can preserve adequate cashflow to provide for costly events such as airframe heavy checks, engine shop visits, life limited part (LLP) replacement or landing gear and auxiliary power unit (APU) overhaul.
Our Maintenance and Cost Forecasting Solution also allows clients to proactively realise and manage maintenance fund surpluses by way of trading, lease or re-lease or part-out decisions.
