ABOUT OUR COMPANY

Ramjet Aviation specializes in the acquisition, sale and appraisal of corporate aircraft. Our staff has worked in all aspects of the aviation industry, and draws upon this experience in every transaction. Our extensive aviation knowledge ensures that our customers are receiving sound and accurate advice throughout the entire sales process.

Buying or selling your corporate aircraft is an involved and challenging process, and requires substantial knowledge of one’s options. Indeed, the business of aircraft sales itself is a highly specialized field, demanding years of experience, and a thorough understanding of the market — its patterns, cycles, and trends. For years, we have successfully advised and guided our clients through the process of aircraft sales, from inspection and documentation to financing and relevant tax issues. Today, Ramjet is ready to do the same for you.

Whether buying or selling on behalf of our clients, our process begins by evaluating the true needs of our clients, researching the marketplace, and then recommending the best possible course of action. In addition to acquisitions and sales, our staff has experience consulting, reconditioning, analysis valuation, maintenance, marketing, and private jet charter services. Working with Ramjet will help you avoid pitfalls and delays that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

It is my goal to make sure that any company or individual that works with Ramjet will not only leave satisfied, but continue to come back to us for all of their aviation needs.
