Depending on how you view the change(s) millennials are altering the world as we know it for better or for worse.
What effect do they have on commercial aviation? What opportunities and modifications are they likely to bring?
While drone-like air taxis have yet to appear in our skies, new business models that apply the “Sharing Economy” model to commercial aviation (such as Uber, Airbnb, and others) are making it simpler to connect with this market at a lower cost than in the past.
These businesses are not only beginning to alter business aviation, but they are also opening up new options for lenders of aircraft.
Traditional aircraft lenders have found it challenging to finance businesses at this stage of their development, but the confirmation that these businesses are thriving and turning a profit may present a real opportunity for lenders to depart from the established model of financing high-net-worth individuals and businesses.
According to millennials, business aviation will change in the future: An interesting analysis of millennials’ perspectives on business aviation was just released by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA).
For Millennials, Sustainability is the biggest concern when it comes to private air transport.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Digitization Are Next in Line
The 2 other major factors millennials are looking for in private jets is the digitization of the Biz Av industry. With AI with the future of technology, it is no surprise that millennials want to incorporate it into Biz Av. But we believe, that while some parts of the flight management services can be digitized but other parts will still need human touch to it.
The Biggest Advocate for Private Jet Is Its Flexibility
