Owning, operating and managing an aircraft is a time consuming task that requires a high level of responsibility, expertise and knowledge. Not every aircraft owner has the time or resources to manage the workload and we appreciate each aircraft owner’s needs are different. Geographically, the aircraft could be based anywhere in Europe and it may be that some of the resources are in place but others need to be resolved.
Whatever your aircraft operating needs, SaxonAir can help to provide the most appropriate solution for your requirements. We offer part or complete aircraft management services customised around your use of the aircraft. Both solely privately owned and operated aircraft, or aircraft being made available for commercial rent-back options are available on the SaxonAir management schemes.
‘Aircraft ownership has been invaluable to maximise my time between busy work schedules and a quality family life. Through SaxonAir’s aircraft management service I have been able to operate my own aircraft without any of the worries of aviation regulations, pilot recruitment or landing permissions, as every flight detail was always taken care of, even down to ensuring a continuous stock of my favourite tea-bags on board. With short notice changes to my schedules the team at SaxonAir were still able to deliver a professional and cost effective service, well done.’
Graeme Kalbraier, Call Connection.

You may choose to add your aircraft to SaxonAir’s commercial charter fleet under the operation of an Air Operators Certificate (AOC). This will provide you with the flexibility and freedom to use your aircraft when you need it and in addition generate some sales revenue.
Operating your aircraft for charter during periods when you do not require its use will return considerable revenue to offset the costs of ownership. Our charter sales team will establish a strategic marketing program specifically for your aircraft to ensure the maximum financial return while presenting the tax saving benefits of commercial operation. We extend service excellence throughout our charter fleet with true pride in presenting your aircraft to our worldwide client base.
We specialise in blending your personal private travel requirements with the financial benefits of commercial operation in a discreet, high quality, integrated aircraft ownership experience.
By choosing SaxonAir to look after your aircraft, you are assured the very best aviation management service at all times and as an AOC holder, we are duty bound to implement high levels of safety and quality assurances and are regularly audited by the Civil Aviation Authority.
