The Aircraft Group®, a Phoenix-based consulting firm to the aviation community, launched a new website to include its expanded services. The company manages financial and maintenance portfolios for aircraft worldwide. The new site highlights the company’s growing list of services as well as expansion into international markets. It also offers a list of specialized consulting services including expert witness testimony, air crew management, equipment configuration trends, certification services, and more. While much of the airline industry struggled throughout 2008, The Aircraft Group was expanding. Acquisitions, bankruptcies, shifts toward foreign markets and more, all created unprecedented opportunities for the company.
“With our extensive work in exporting aircraft to markets in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, it was necessary for us to redesign our website to ensure that our scope of services was being communicated,” stated Walter Andrushenko, president and founder of The Aircraft Group. The new site describes the company’s consulting services as well as offers a demo of TAG Fleet Online®, an Internet-based aircraft portfolio management system. The patented system manages lease agreements, legal documents, inspection records, historical data, program information, airworthiness and registrations from anywhere in the world.
“The current economy has actually helped us as it forces the hand of those in the industry to ensure that the documentation on each aircraft is up-to-date and easily transferable. The FAA doesn’t excuse regulations dependent on a company’s current financial situation. The same is true with regulatory agencies in other countries,” stated Andrushenko. The Aircraft Group’s team specializes in staying current on all regulations and processes for transitioning ownership of aircraft within and across borders. The Aircraft Group’s new website even offers a regulatory maze section to identify current regulatory additions, changes and modifications. “We focus on aircraft portfolio management so it was important for us to position our website as a resource for the entire industry,” added Andrushenko.
