Assent Aeronautics yesterday launched an aircraft transaction advisory business unit to deliver data-driven aircraft brokerage and transaction advisory services to the business aviation sector. Aircraft sales and acquisition veteran Jake Banglesdorf will lead the business unit, along with Samson Whitfield as a principal broker.
The parent company is “investing heavily” in the new business unit and plans to hire eight to 10 principal brokers and several support staff over the next year. With this additon, Assent Aeronautics said it now offers a full suite of services, including aircraft management, outsourced director of aircraft maintenance services, and full-service aircraft brokerage and transaction advisory support.
Its new advisory service will draw upon Assent’s 15 years of proprietary aircraft operations and aircraft maintenance data for research and analytics. The company intends to leverage this data trove to deliver predictive analytics for its clients in the areas of aircraft valuation, operating costs, and asset management to mitigate risk for clients before a transaction is conducted.
“Assent Aeronautics’ approach will demystify the overall aircraft ownership experience, specifically in the sales and acquisitions process,” it said.
