We constantly strive to deliver excellence to our clients to make their lives simpler and to maximise pleasure. Now that level of service has been extended to the sky with our new aviation division.
Imagine only having to deal with one company for both your yacht and private jet requirements – the luxury of simplicity. Aligning the needs of both superyacht and private jet clients, Ocean Independence’s unique ‘one-stop shop’ approach now makes this service a reality.
Overseen by Philipp Wieser, Ocean Independence’s Head of Aviation, our new in-house aviation division has dedicated expertise in aircraft charter; sales and acquisition; and consultancy, meaning we now offer a comprehensive service by both sea and air.
It's all part of our 'one-stop shop' company strategy
With a decade of experience as a pilot flying private jets for ultra-high net worth clients in the South of France, another decade working in private jet sales and acquisition making around nine aircraft transactions a year, as well as a huge amount of consultancy experience, Wieser has outstanding levels of expertise in all areas of the private aviation industry.
Working seamlessly with our yacht brokers and managers, our aviation division offers unparalleled ease and complete solutions to our clients. With our charter service, we can organise everything from finding the right aircraft and pilot for your needs, to planning the entire itinerary for your trip – even with short notice. “One of our clients was on board his yacht when he was called to attend an emergency business meeting,” says Wieser. “He was in touch with his yacht manager and mentioned that he needed to find a helicopter. We organised everything for him – with just one phone call everything was taken care of.”
Our sales and acquisition service sees our aviation division scouring the market and using our peerless industry connections to find the perfect jet – or buyer – for our clients. “Now you can come to Ocean Independence and not only buy or sell your yacht with us, but your private jet too. It’s all part of our ‘one-stop shop’ strategy,” says Wieser.
Our consultancy service offers our clients full-scale management of their aircraft. From finding highly trained pilots and cabin crew to flight planning, pilot training and dealing with the handling agent on landing, Ocean Independence can take care of every last detail – so you can relax.
“Ocean Independence is a global leader in its field and where we lead others will try to follow but for now we are unique with this strategy,” says Wieser. “It’s an exciting new chapter.”
