ZenithJet Introduces Aviation CFO program

September 14, 2021  By Wings Staff

ZenithJet, an aviation consulting firm based in Saint-Laurent, Quebec, today introduced Aviation CFO, a cost management program that enables business aircraft owners and operators to reduce operating costs by benchmarking against real-world data.

ZenithJet’s proprietary data is generated by its sister company Elit’Avia, an aircraft management and charter specialist with more than 15 years’ experience operating a large fleet of business aircraft worldwide.

Drawing from this wealth of real-world data, plus additional industry databases, ZenithJet explains its team generates highly-reliable comparative data on business aircraft services. Launched in response to client demand, Aviation CFO formalizes services that ZenithJet has long performed to reduce clients’ operating costs.

Based on a monthly subscription, Aviation CFO services include: Analysis of recurring expenses (fuel, handling, parking, maintenance, hangarage, insurance, crew salaries and other operational costs) as compared to ZenithJet’s proprietary benchmarks; Analysis of aircraft programs and warranties to ensure maximum coverage; and Negotiation of aircraft maintenance proposals and final costs.


“Operating a business aircraft can easily cost millions of dollars per year and expenses are often summarized in dozens of complex line items,” said Kevin Rodgers, Executive Vice President, ZenithJet. “We leverage the proprietary data that we have generated as business aircraft operators to analyze and assess expenses, programs and warranties, and negotiate for the financial benefit of our clients. Aviation CFO enables owners and operators to derive maximum value from their aircraft investment by ensuring that operating costs are optimized. We invite aircraft owners and operators worldwide to contact us to find out how we can reduce their costs.”
