Empire Aviation Group, the Dubai-based private aviation specialist, has announced the appointment of Matthieu Chavrot as the global Director of Aircraft Sales & Acquisitions.
Matthieu Chavrot will focus on sales and acquisitions as global demand for business jets increases, driven by the current global travel restrictions and the growing appreciation of the privacy, freedom and controlled environment offered by private aviation.
Matthieu Chavrot comments: “There are now more people able to afford to buy business jets and prepared to invest to reap the benefits of convenience, privacy and flexibility.
“They are also seeking the additional benefits of low touchpoints and the health and safety advantages of traveling in small, private groups.
“These buyers need fast and efficient professional support in what can be complex transactions for high value assets.
“Buyers may also be interested in our management services and this capability means we can also provide impartial advice about the ongoing operational costs, before committing, in a consultative approach to sales and acquisitions.
“For buyers, this means looking closely at the client’s mission types, aircraft age preference and budget.”
Paras P. Dhamecha, Founder and Managing Director of Empire Aviation Group, adds: “Private aviation is a people business and we are delighted to welcome Matthieu to the team.
“His experience and connections will be invaluable as we continue to develop our sales and acquisition capabilities to support our managed aircraft owners, who also buy and sell aircraft, as well as for the broader global market.
“Our aim is to ensure the same high quality professional approach that has proved so successful in aircraft management and charter, as trusted advisors and partners to our clients.”
