Sales and acquisitions specialist Jetcraft has completed the sale of a pre-owned Embraer Praetor 600 super-midsize jet.
“The Praetor 600 is one of the world’s newest, and most disruptive private jets, capable of flying further than any other super-midsize with non-stop travel between London and New York, or Oslo and Dubai,” said Chad Anderson, president at Jetcraft. “As we continue to see fresh innovations from OEMs, we’re witnessing a step-change in ownership patterns. Some buyers are seeking to quickly upgrade their aircraft to the latest model, meaning a pre-owned jet can now be available a year or two after its original certification.”
Jetcraft said its 2020 sales were consistent with previous years despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw an essential halt in aircraft sales during the second quarter of 2020.
“We’re seeing a pent-up demand for travel, with a healthy number of sale acquisition and trade-in enquiries already this year, buoyed by growing market confidence,” said Anderson. “With business aviation utilisation currently the closest it’s been to pre-COVID-19 levels, we’re equally enthused about the prospect of new entrants to our industry, who are beginning their path to aircraft ownership by first experiencing air charter, jet-card or fractional solutions. We’re ready to support them when they want to take the next step to owning their own aircraft.”
