Helping with Everything it takes "TO LIFT" your Pilatus


No matter the experience you or your pilot may have, operative a highly complex multi-million dollar asset should be given the respect it deserves. There are various training providers and mentor pilots that we have experience with. Our team can assist you in navigating your options and selecting what is best for you based on insurance, costs, timing, and most importantly, common sense.


Our intimate knowledge of the aircraft ensures that no matter what aspect of Pilatus operations you need assistance with, we have the knowledge and resources. Through our network and experience, we help you navigate various topics such as: sourcing a pilot, management company, charter operator, or even the best FBO/hangar source. Every ownership experience is unique and through our network, we will provide the best solutions.


There are a lot of aspects to an aircraft purchase agreement, as well as the ownership structure. As an example, you could set up a legal entity to own an airplane and operate it illegally without even knowing it. At JetSwiss, we use aviation specific attorneys that have the knowledge and experience to navigate the landmines, protecting our clients now and in the future.


When it comes to insurance, we dive into the details early in the process and often. A lot of the insurance requirements center around the pilot’s experience. We assist our clients in navigating the complexities of the insurance markets and understanding where the opportunity cost/benefit scale meets risk/liability.


Whether you are paying cash, leasing the aircraft, or taking on debt, knowing and understanding your options and pitfalls will allow you to make the best decision. We aid you in navigating the lending process by recommending only those lenders that have been vetted and have experience in the Pilatus markets.


Navigating the complexities of federal, state, and local tax regulations can be the difference between costing you a lot of money or saving you a lot of money. Proper tax planning is essential to a positive ownership experience. JetSwiss partners with only the finest aviation specific tax consultants to minimize the impact of aircraft ownership.
