What is aviation finance?

Britain’s aviation industry continues to be globally important, with UK manufacturers producing commercial aircraft of all sizes. In fact, the UK’s aerospace industry is the third-largest in the world and the second-largest in Europe and the government sinks billions of pounds into aerospace R&D annually, supporting the sector to generate over £35 billion of value every year – including £30 billion of exports.

Whether your interests lie in buying commercial craft, light craft, rescue helicopters, aviation equipment – or perhaps developing aerostructures, propulsion or supporting systems, access to finance is key. This industry is hugely capital intensive due to the costs of operating an aviation fleet, and the complexity and scale of aviation production, with significant R&D costs required to innovate in the field – and equally high costs for materials, maintenance manufacture and skilled staff.

As the sector continues to grow and become even more important strategically to Britain in the future, aviation businesses are looking for the finance that they need to take their ambitions forward. This type of specialist finance tends not to be available on the high street but is offered via specialist business lenders with aviation sector expertise. A focused business intermediary like Hank Zarihs Associates can facilitate your access to aviation loans.

benefits of aviation finance

When you choose to take out an aviation loan, you protect your working capital for use across your business and conserve your cash reserves – strengthening the position of your business. Furthermore, the affordable loan repayments are spread out over the most appropriate repayment term for your needs, minimising the impact on your business finances

Access to finance when you need it

We use slick and efficient systems and great relationships with our panel of specialist business lenders to bring clients fast loans. When you need aviation finance fast, please contact us for a highly efficient, effective service.

Flexible lending arrangements

We recognise that our clients’ needs are highly varied, and the diverse aviation industry means that flexibility is key. This is reflected in the wide range of finance deals we can help our clients to secure. These include arrangements for aircraft leasing, as well as mortgage-based equipment loans (where the loan is secured against the aircraft as the underlying asset) – also known as a chattel loan with a mortgage.

For clients that require it, we can also arrange asset-based aviation funding that uses other business assets as credit security, as well as invoice discounting arrangements, whereby outstanding invoices can be used to free up instant cash on a discounted basis. Further flexibility is on offer in the form of repayments (including mortgage and balloon repayments) and your choice of repayment term.

Transparent, clear loans

Aviation funding can be complex due to the size and nature of the loans involved. For this reason, we pride ourselves on offering a completely clear and transparent advisory service. We provide expert advice on flexible aviation loans for our clients combined with tailored illustrations so that each client is completely clear on the nature and terms of the aviation loan they are seeking to obtain.
