Our multi-operational understanding, from an independent perspective, allows our company to offer key insights that enable our clients to implement and improve their operations and meet their strategic objectives.

Commercial Services

The Commercial team consists of seven operating groups: Markets, Technical, Contracts, Risk, Pricing, Cost & Operations. We are industry experts with the insights and capabilities to help transform the aviation sector leading companies. Santos Dumont Commercial orchestrates and brings together the best of technical and commercial skill sets from across the organisation and has primary responsibility for building long-term client relationships.

Technical Services

The Technical team harnesses the power of experience and technology to drive innovative project management solutions, deliver value propositions and increase operational productivity. It comprises five primary areas: Redeliveries, Engines, Inspections, Training and Technology. We draw on the knowledge we have acquired over the years of practice and we use our global relationships across the aviation industry to deliver effective results for our clients.

Airlines

With strong ties to the OEM and Lessor community, our team can support all stages of the selection process from origination, marketing, specification and purchase or lease negotiation.

Santos Dumont has a strong project management track record and we believe we can help improve and support with both near-term and major strategic decisions. Our true value to an airline is in the outsourced solution offering. This approach offers additional skilled professionals that can engage at any level within the organisation to effect real change and improvement.

Throughout the Santos Dumont team there is a deep technical expertise that can bring real commercial benefits to an airline without disrupting internal operations. We understand an airlines priorities and can provide real value that does not distract from day to day business operations.

Lessors

With a strong global presence, Santos Dumont has developed key industry relationships and project management experience. Our planning team can help evaluate business decisions in a broad range of areas from asset selection, market due diligence, risk analysis, pricing and strategic directives.

Santos Dumont has grown its marketing team to meet the growing demand for out-sourced support on a global basis and for customers who want specific local knowledge in regions they do not, as of yet, have a firm presence. Our team is continually maintaining and building airline and lessor relationships that provide our customers with the greatest opportunity to find a commercial solution that works for them on a deal by deal basis.

The Santos Dumont team have delivered, managed, transitioned and sold aircraft across the complete wide and narrow body asset classes. At the centre of the team is a deep technical knowledge and all our managers have qualifications in specific asset types to ensure a fundamental appreciation for what is important to our customers in asset management.

Through the development of proprietary financial modeling tools and vast on-lease and transaction experience, we offer our clients an informed view on their investments that can optimise returns for their business.

At Santos Dumont we understand the aviation business and we know that one size does not fit all. Our special projects teams are assembled across the organisation and together have decades of experience, skills and industry relationships to support any customers’ strategic objectives.

Aircraft

Redeliveries require a high level of technical and commercial knowledge to ensure that the process is managed in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We provide a specific project management approach to all redeliveries, with thorough planning being our number one priority. Our services include, but are not limited to, onsite team supervision, liaison with the lessee, review of records and detailed physical inspections to ensure the integrity of documentation and aircraft physical.

With our specialised redelivery team, you benefit from significant experience with 150 aircraft redeliveries over the last decade. Our experience, coupled with strong relationships within the airline, lessor, manufacturer and financial communities, allows for a streamlined and effective process.

At Santos Dumont, through our detailed planning and investment in the used aircraft delivery process, we ensure an efficient, on schedule, flexible transition of the asset. This complex aspect of the aircraft lifecycle requires a broad and flexible range of team skills, to ensure a seamless delivery and with our experience over the last decade we can work with owners to provide the right level of service that is necessary. We offer turnkey management of aircraft deliveries and with our services and expertise, aircraft owners can offer increased predictability to their customers, resulting in a prompt return of the aircraft to service.

In conjunction with aircraft redelivery and delivery services, Santos Dumont has a wealth of experience in performing aircraft due diligence inspections whether it is part of a pre-purchase inspection or mid-term lease audit. The detailed technical reports that result from these inspections give the aircraft owner a detailed insight of the physical condition of the aircraft.

These reviews also verify an aircraft’s regulatory compliance with a lease contract or purchase agreement requirements. We have been performing inspections on behalf of lessors, airlines, investment funds and new start-ups over the last decade and the inspections can include review of management structure, staffing levels, quality assurance, processes, procedures, financial details, maintenance costs, spares and third party agreements.

Engines

Santos Dumont has both the knowledge and expertise to provide highly efficient engine solutions that meets the varying lifecycle challenges faced by all operators and owners.

We recognise that no two fleet solutions are the same and we tailor our management services into a comprehensive programme that precisely fits your operational needs. This covers the new engine selection, planning, analysis, induction and shop visit management activities that are core to successful fleet management.

Santos Dumont has over 150 years combined experience across a full range of engine types that includes CFM, IAE, PW, RR and GE products. Our team also brings strong metal, records and engineering backgrounds that offer in-depth solutions on an engine by engine basis which brings true asset value to the forefront and mitigates risks in event planning and management.

We also have significant experience in covering all aspects of engine management from the perspective of the lessor and the lessee for optimal protection of your assets. We treat all engines on an un-biased, technical basis and we bring an OEM and commercial understanding that completes the full appraisal for any engine asset.

In addition to providing solutions for lessors and lessees, our appraisal team aid investors and existing engine owners in assessing their investment through the lifecycle of the engine and act as direct liaison with the various stakeholders.

Engine maintenance is the most cost demanding part of the aircraft maintenance operation and it is the area that can mean the difference between positive or negative investment outcomes. Understanding the relationship between engine performance and individual gas path engine components is crucial when managing engines undergoing maintenance.

Our team deliver comprehensive on-site and remote management that provides support to ensure the quality standard of repaired parts and costs are in line with best practices and expectations.

Engine sale and part-out may often be a viable exit strategy rather than going through maintenance and our market knowledge paired with our commercial team offers a breadth of options for all investor’s business requirements.
