Jetcraft partners with software provider Bluetail to 'protect aircraft value'

This 2014 Gulfstream G450 sn 4295 is available for sale exclusively through Jetcraft. This 14-passenger aircraft with forward galley is equipped with Gulfstream’s “Elite” Interior Package. The Engines & APU are enrolled on programs while it had its 96 month inspection completed in March 2022. It is currently underway with a “Premium” Level Pre-Purchase Inspection at Jet Aviation – GVA.

Jetcraft has partnered with software provider Bluetail to help brokers protect clients’aircraft value by digitally storing logbooks and records using its cloud-based platform.

The business jet broker will now use Bluetail’s services as part of each aircraft sale the business completes. Jetcraft employees can now digitally scan aircraft logbooks and records and then upload them to Bluetail’s cloud server to be securely stored.

“As we’ve all seen in the past 18 months, there’s been unprecedented activity in the business jet market,” said Stuart Illian, chief operating officer, Bluetail. “That demand and the narrowing availability of quality pre-owned aircraft has pushed selling prices to their highest levels. By offering Bluetail, Jetcraft is taking a proactive step in helping its customers protect the value of their aircraft.”

Illian added that many buyers are new to business jet ownership and don’t want the hassles of having to securely store logs in fireproof vaults. “Having their aircraft’s valuable records stored in the cloud will eliminate any worries about the possibility of losing logbooks and devaluing the aircraft,” he said.

For Joe Fesi, director, Maintenance, Jetcraft, having accurate and complete logbooks and records is more important than ever, especially in the current highly active business jet market.

We’re confident that Bluetail’s portfolio of cloud-based services will not only make it easier for prospective purchasers to review aircraft records but also for owners to maintain their digital records, creating added value when they decide to sell,” said Fesi.

Bluetail has a software tool for charter brokers too. Last year, it launched Mach Conformity, developed in collaboration with Part 135 charter operators such as Solarius Aviation, Wheels Up, Jet It, Wing Aviation and Mach Point Aviation. The company claims the programme reduces the time to perform conformity inspections by 50%.
