A TOOL SET Only available from Central Business Jets, Inc.

Central Business Jets researches and produces nearly all of its own data to give our clients the complete picture. We believe that in order to be the leader in the industry, innovation is an intracle part. We have often felt that third party information can be unreliable. 

  • JetTrack®: Timing, facts, & accuracy matters… Developed in 1987, this U.S. trademarked program tracks pricing & transaction history on a daily basis for every type of business jet by make, model & serial number. JetTrack® provides a precise basis for valuation & timing of the market, price strategy to aid in a sale, & facilitates type-to-type market comparisons to aid in purchasing.
  • JetCost©: We want our clients to fully understand the costs involved in aircraft ownership. This proprietary database includes a break down of maintenance and fuel costs forecasted over a 12 year/4800 hour period.  JetCost© data is researched directly from the experiences of aircraft operators and maintenance facilities around the world.
  • CEO Sheet©: Where do you start when determining which aircraft? We’ve simplified this process with our colorful “CEO” sheet. This common sense, plain-language tool enables decision makers to see a one page executive summary about a particular type of business jet. Flight departments also rely on the information to help support their recommendations.
  • Corporate Survey©: Our survey has become a powerful tool when it comes to evaluating current and future corporate plans. The survey is presented in a non-technical format to help our customers simplify the process.
  • Performance & Mission Analysis©: This tool provides “real life experience” analysis on aircraft performance relative to mission criteria for purchase planning.
  • In-House Library: From our exclusive information, we can also offer: news releases, factory brochures, flight performance specifics, maintenance notes and industry articles. Just ask us.

These tools are the result of decades of experience with virtually every business jet product line and our philosophy as a consultant to our clients is that an educated customer is vital to a successful transaction.
