Creating new customers in business aviation....

When once again we all seem to be talking about a 'flat' market, how do we create new clients and a more sustainable business aviation environment? Can we?

+Michael Flannelly I think that more progress on this is being made in the US than Europe but I suspect the fundamental problem remains the same and shows no real sign of changing.

Public perception of using/chartering a private aircraft of any type is simply a luxury that most 'normal' people cannot afford.

To reinforce that message our industry then seems hell bent on only marketing its services into that luxury bracket. Most operators fall over themselves to show of their products with glossy luxurious images which do nothing to actually market the benefits that chartering an aircraft might offer.

I would contend that modern light aircraft/jets operated by well structured businesses with effective cost controls backed by a thorough understanding of their market (not luxury) are able to operate aircraft at price points that are entirely attainable by 'normal' people.

I don't think it matters whether you are offering Globals/G650's or Mustang's you are essentially offering a product that offers everybody a range of benefits, convenience, flexibility, value, time and yes in some cases comfort or luxury.

To attract new users we have to focus on the all round benefits and not just the glossy image. 

'No Plane, No Gain' has the right messages at an industry level but how many operators have done anything to incorporate those messages into their marketing messages. The campaign was torpedoed before it even really got going.

What industry can survive if you don't seek to develop new customers for your products. We cannot simply really on Forbes to produce a list of the latest and greatest 'new' billionaires and then market ourselves to them exclusively, it won't work.

We should have been flying that 'new' billiionaire when he was only just in the start-up stages of his business because he appreciated and benefited from our product and not just wait until he can afford to buy himself a G650, simply makes no sense for clients, operators or manufacturers.4

Or at least it doesn't in my opinion! :)
