Survey: Who Owns Business Jet Operators?

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Survey: Who Owns Business Jet Operators?" report to their offering.

The business jet market is extremely fragmented due to regulatory limits on foreign ownership and the few barriers to entry it takes to launch. Although regulatory burdens are increasing, many founders (pilots or mechanics) are prepared to cope with these because they are committed to running aviation businesses. 

Most operators are privately owned and run by owner managers that are not looking to sell, but private equity companies and high net worth individuals have shown interest in the sector with deals likely to happen in 2013 and 2014 as the market recovers. However, there is a big spread between what investors want to pay and what owners think their business is worth. 

Some consolidation has happened but new start-ups outweigh the number of mergers and this will continue to happen as people's passion for running an aircraft manager outweighs the (significant) risks in starting-up.

Key Topics Covered:

1.0 Executive summary
2.0 About Corporate Jet Investor
3.0 Introduction
4.0 Private owners
5.0 Stockmarket listed aircraft managers
Case study: Hangar 8's failed acquisition plans
6.0 Airline subsidiaries and subsidiaries of listed companies
