Why finance your aircraft?

  • Find liquidity in an illiquid asset: Rely on aircraft financing from J.P. Morgan Private Bank for your purchase of a new or pre-owned aircraft, or to refinance an existing aircraft you currently own. 
  • Benefit from long-term financing with favorable terms: Aircraft have long lives. Their value tends to depreciate slowly. This means attractive pricing on fixed- and floating-rate loans. 
  • Maintain your investment strategy: Access liquidity without disrupting your investment portfolio.

Benefit from a consultative approach

Through an understanding of your financial condition, cash flow and the nature of your balance sheet, we will share financing options with you. We will help you consider the implications for each, including factors such as tax efficiency, duration and cost. This way you will be able to make a confident financing decision that is right for you.
