Vertis Aviation Aircraft Trading is a new business aircraft brokerage created by Mark Abbott, Conan McGale and Jeffrey Emmenis, who together have more than 60 years of sector experience. Vertis Aviation Aircraft Trading (VAAT) explains the business, headquartered in Dubai, was inspired by an increasing number of requests for aircraft transaction support from charter customers of sister business Vertis Aviation.

The company explains VAAT CEO Mark Abbott brings a wealth of experience conducting high-level negotiations across international borders between ultra-high-net-worth individual owners, operators, airframe manufacturers and brokers. McGale, who is serving as VAAT’s Director, was instrumental in developing The Jet Business, where he built and led the pioneering company’s industry-leading research department. One of the founders of boutique charter broker Vertis Aviation, Emmenis, is also a Director.

“Our industry familiarity means we are distinctive in our ability to share our knowledge and provide dependable, data-driven advice to existing and new buyers and sellers from pre- to post-transaction,” said Abbott. “In addition to supporting trading, we can help connect customers with reputable legal, financial, and fiscal professionals and advise on aircraft management, refurbishment, or maintenance options. We want to build trusted lifetime relationships to help our clients optimize their business aviation usage from start to finish.”

Through the relationship with Vertis Aviation, the new brokerage notes it will also support customers looking to upgrade from charter to ownership or support divestment as owners downgrade.
