For a long time, people in bizav said all you needed to be an air charter broker was a phone, a contacts book and a willingness to work hard. Today you certainly need internet access too, but an office still feels optional. Why is remote working so perfect for private aviation?
Given business aviation is a location-fluid industry by its nature, the new ease of this work-from-anywhere style of business is a welcome trend — and one rich with opportunities too. We are seeing many of the larger business aviation companies are growing via acquisition, meaning they are absorbing new staff spread out across multiple time zones. Remote capabilities mean these businesses can grow, retain valuable talent and slim operating costs all at once.
And for the so-called “bedroom brokers,” being a self-starter in business aviation industry has never been smoother. With the right attitude and a little research into the right online platforms, it’s possible to provide professional and polished customer service right from the get-go. Then your hub of operations will be wherever you choose to go.
