Hawke Pacific, leading aircraft sales and product support company in Asia, Pacific and the Middle East, has made a strategic investment in its sales brokerage services to accommodate rising demand for long-range business aviation in the Asia-Pacific region, with the establishment of an Aircraft Sales and Acquisitions business.
The new brokerage arm is located at Hawker Pacific’s facility at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore and headed up by Paul van der Blom, Director Aircraft Sales and Acquisition Services, recently appointed by Hawker Pacific to focus on the company’s business aircraft trading presence in Asia. The business provides sound, success-driven consultation to assist people in buying and selling aircraft. The services offered are not limited to any particular manufacturer of aircraft, and extend to the representation of the seller and/or the buyer.
Tony Jones, Chief Operating Officer for Asia said: ”Hawker Pacific has a very experienced management team and a strong reputation within the region as an aircraft sales and support company. We have been developing additional services around our client’s needs like expanding our FBO network and more recently with the addition of our Aircraft Management business, so it makes perfect sense to expand our offering to include the brokerage and acquisition service. Already our clients have recognised there is real value with this integrated approach and working with a trusted partner. Aircraft Sales is already a very active part of our business and this service builds on this whilst leveraging on our other strengths.”
“Paul van der Blom is a welcome addition to the team and brings a number of strengths that leverage Hawker Pacific’s existing capabilities The company is already a leader in aircraft maintenance and support, logistics and FBO services and, while the company has been active in brokerage for a long time, we now have the added benefit of a specific brokerage arm targeting the long range, large cabin business aircraft segment. Hawker Pacific’s ultimate objective is to tick every box when it comes to the life of an aircraft and the needs of our of our customer.”
Hawker Pacific has also recently announced the establishment of a dedicated aircraft management service, Aircraft Management Pte Ltd, also based Singapore which offers a ’modular’ management service framework solution, tailoring all aircraft project management services – from maintenance management to administration, fuelling, insurance and catering services, crewing and more.
