Gulfstream Launches Preowned Aircraft Sales App

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently launched a new app that allows customers to explore the company’s preowned aircraft inventory on their mobile devices.

The Gulfstream Preowned Aircraft Sales app offers customers real-time inventory listings with high-quality photography and detailed aircraft information, including total flight hours and landings, the aircraft’s entry-into-service date and pricing. Push notifications alert customers when a listing changes status.

“This easy-to-use mobile platform combines technology with superior service,” said Jim Ross, vice president, Preowned Aircraft Sales, Gulfstream. “With one touch, customers can access information on any preowned aircraft available in Gulfstream’s inventory, at any time, from anywhere.”

In addition to real-time listings, the app also includes a section that allows interested buyers to request more information about a particular aircraft.

“The Gulfstream Preowned Aircraft Sales app offers the most convenient way to stay up-to-date on available aircraft. It also connects potential customers to experienced sales team members, making it a true one-stop shop,” said Ross.

The Gulfstream Preowned sales group works with the new aircraft sales team, which includes more than 70 domestic, international and government aircraft sales directors, representatives and consultants who have extensive knowledge of and background in Gulfstream products.

The free app is available for download in the Apple App Store or at www.preownedaircraftapp.com. Customers can also browse preowned aircraft on www.gulfstreampreowned.com. The preowned aircraft section features the same listings available on the app.

Aircraft Bluebook represents maintenance events as being fresh for most turbo prop and fan jet late model fixed wing aircraft in its descriptive “Base Average.” Calculating the financial exposure associated with all completed and upcoming scheduled maintenance events is a complex process. Additionally, to accurately complete such a task requires detailed knowledge of spare parts cost, Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) rates for On-Condition components and flat-rate costs for maintenance inspections—just to name a few. Asset Insight, Inc., provides anyone holding, or planning to hold, a financial interest in an aircraft, a simple-to-understand, uniform methodology—an industry standard—for evaluating an aircraft’s maintenance condition based on a standardized scale.
