S&P 500 senior executives have stated,

“We typically see a time savings of 50 to 75 percent on certain trips using business aviation instead of scheduled service.”[1] A report prepared by Nexa Advisors for the National Business Aviation Association in 2009 stated that “business aviation is a tool that provides a unique competitive benefit to America’s businesses.”

Business aircraft are versatile, and can be used for transportation of Employees, Customers, Suppliers, Cargo, Parts and Mail, as well as Aerial Surveys and Photography. The majority of passengers traveling on business aircraft are not top management; 70% of passengers are other managers and technical, sales or service staff. Furthermore, business aviation is not exclusively a tool for large corporations; small companies operate 59% of business aircraft[2].

How can business aircraft usage affect your business? Nexa’s “UBV” framework illustrates the overall benefits and value that business aircraft can bring to your company.


Many times, the total costs associated with traveling by train or commercial airline (train & airline tickets, parking, taxis, car services, rental cars, lodging, meals, entertainment, per diem and other expenses) outweighs the cost of a private charter. The “door-to-door” travel time is shortened considerably, making staff more productive. Traditional methods of travel waste valuable hours of time, especially during time-sensitive and critical missions; in many situations vital tasks cannot be completed due to the limited schedules of trains and airlines, and the lack of time available to the executives and staff members.

The Value of Helicopters in Business Aviation 

Helicopter destinations are practically limitless. Fixed-wing aircraft, commercial airline and train service offer limited destination service; with helicopters, arrangements may be made to land at one’s office or private residence, in addition to thousands of airports and heliports. Helicopters take passengers and cargo from point to point, with ease and efficiency in a secure and luxurious environment.
