How to Purchase Your First Preowned Business Jet

Prices have been coming down on preowned jets, so it may be worth investing in your own aircraft if you’re flying often enough with a jet card or fractional-share program. Having an expert on your side for such a purchase is important, so BJT spoke with brokers Janine Iannarelli, Jahid Fazal-Karim, and Steve Varsano to get professional advice on what to look for and how to make the transaction go smoothly. Once you find an aircraft with the right provenance and interior configuration, you can relatively easily change the interior’s soft goods—such as upholstery, leather and carpet—to build the jet of your dreams at a significant discount from new.
