Working closely with high net worth individuals and large corporates, we offer a comprehensive range of innovative, effective aviation services to aircraft owners and operators worldwide.

Our experience has been gained over many years and many thousands of air miles. Our team is well-practised in providing rigorous management structures which meet the most stringent technical requirements in the most appropriate jurisdictions, in addition to registration, management, VAT and financial reporting.

Equiom’s aviation team members are carefully selected, meaning that client assets are managed and cared for by highly-trained and experienced professionals.

Our structures are bespoke and can be provided in a number of jurisdictions. The choice of jurisdiction is driven by our clients’ needs and the specific business advantages that the chosen location offers.
