Assent Aeronautics announced oct. 9 that it has launched a new aircraft transaction advisory business unit to deliver data driven aircraft brokerage and transaction advisory services to the private aviation sector, and has tapped aircraft sales and acquisition expert, Jake Banglesdorf to lead the effort as Vice-President and Samson Whitfield as a principal broker.

“Jake has built a reputation as an epic communicator and a straight shooter who is passionate about treating his clients, team members and other aviation professionals, like family,” said W. Hulsey Smith, president of Assent Aeronautics.

“As a third-generation private aviation professional, Jake has experience working in nearly every facet of private aviation, and we are proud to have him lead our aircraft brokerage and advisory business,” Smith said in the announcement.

Assent Aeronautics has also added industry veteran Samson Whitfield to join the firm as a Principal in the aircraft brokerage business.

The news release said Assent Aeronautics is investing heavily in the new business unit and anticipates hiring between eight and 10 principal brokers, and a number of support staff members in the coming year.

With the addition of full-service aircraft brokerage, Assent Aeronautics now offers the full suite of services including Aircraft Management, Out-Sourced Director of Aircraft Maintenance Services, and full-service aircraft brokerage and transaction advisory support, the company said.

“Teaming up with the tremendous operational experience of Assents’ aircraft maintenance and management staff will deliver truly differentiated aircraft brokerage and transaction advisory services. This is why I accepted the role leading this business unit,” Banglesdorf said in the news release.

“It is extremely rare to find an aircraft brokerage firm who has a full time in-house technical team supporting and overseeing pre-purchase inspections and daily aircraft operations,” he said.

The company said it has more than 15 years and more than 50,000 flight hours of proprietary aircraft operations and aircraft maintenance data that forms the base of its research and analytics capabilities.

The company intends to lever the data to deliver predictive analytics for its clients in the areas of aircraft valuation, operating costs and asset management, delivering clarity and mitigating risk for clients upfront, before money is on the table in an aircraft transaction, the news release said.
