Brendan Lodge launches AviaLodgic
Brendan Lodge an experienced aircraft sales broker and financier has launched AviaLodgic a new independent consultancy for aircraft owners and buyers.
“AviaLodgic can help buyers and sellers with all aspects of the transaction – including finding the best people to advise them on particular issues,” says Lodge. “In theory transactions look simple but every deal is unique and this is why experience is vital – AviaLodgic wants owners and buyers to know that they have an expert overseeing their transaction for them.”
He says that AviaLodgic will manage all aspects of aircraft sales and purchasing for buyers and sellers – including marketing and sourcing of aircraft, valuations and technical inspections and advising on financing and aircraft management and operation.
AviaLodgic also wants to work with financiers helping support the credit process and provide asset management services.
Lodge has spent more than 15 years in business aviation. First as an asset financier and banker arranging business aircraft finance then seven years as an aircraft broker.
“I want to build a multi-faceted consultancy where we can advise on the right aircraft, the right operator through to selling the aircraft eventually,” says Lodge. “These are high-value assets so deals will always be complex, but the aim of AviaLodgic is to simplify and take the risk out of the process for buyer, sellers, lenders and investors – so they can concentrate on what is important for them.”
Lodge will be attending the EBACE Convention 2017. He is well known in Europe as the founder and organiser of the Aviation Supper Club and past president of CEPA – the Central European Private Aviation Association
