Should your aircraft be on an engine program? Will making upgrades increase its value? Should you buy new, near-new or maintain status quo? All of these questions (and more) are answered during the capital planning process, designed to identify essential, long-term aviation needs. A capital plan is a multi-year financial plan that drives corporate objective setting. Put simply, it’s a critical element of optimizing your capital investment and return on investment. Successful budgeting and planning often comes down to understanding basic accounting principles and combining them with the right aircraft market data in order to make improved, informed and auditable investment decisions. And when the planning process involves aviation assets, the flight department leader must be aligned with C-suite and/or owner—and speak the same language! It also means that an aviation director needs to provide realistic program and cost expectations to help optimize operational capacity, enhance safety and strengthen the aviation department.
