Aircraft Closing

Choosing a delivery / closing location for an aircraft sale and purchase is often an important characteristic when structuring a transaction, especially an international one. Guernsey’s European geographical location is increasing in popularity as a delivery / closing location being situation outside of the European Union.

Being just off the Northwest coast of France means that none of the main business aviation centres of Europe are more than a couple of flight hours away. Furthermore, it is centrally located for the North American and Middle East / CIS / North African markets falling in the same time zone as the United Kingdom, meaning Guernsey is conveniently situated for banking and aircraft registry activities associated with the closing of an international transaction.

ASG is located at Guernsey International Airport (GCI) and is the only on Island provider with the in- house capabilities to deliver practical aspects linked to a sale closing. ASG’s in-house capabilities to support an aircraft closing include:

ASG are very experienced on all Piper models, they maintained my previous aircraft before I traded up to my latest Mirage. I always get clear, detailed reports on what work needs doing along with cost estimates, before I commit to the work being done, which gives me peace of mind and enables me to budget ahead.

ASG are easily the most experienced Commander maintenance company outside the USA. No wonder there are so many Commanders in their hangars when I visit them for maintenance – I simply would not trust anyone else with my aircraft, having used them for the last 5 annual inspections.

I’ve had my Cirrus maintained by ASG for the past 4 years, since it was new and I’m always impressed with their detailed knowledge of the aircraft and it’s systems. ASG have really looked after me and my aircraft, which still looks as fresh as when it was built.

I always choose ASG for handling in Guernsey, because they are very friendly, it feels like I’m coming home! Nothing is too much trouble and on the odd occasion my aircraft has maintenance issues whilst I’m there, the engineers are very quick to sort things out and get me on my way. Bravo ASG!
