Services — Aircraft Recoveries
As with ships, most aircraft can be relocated to any place in the world at
relatively short notice, making them susceptible to unlawful
expropriation, including theft, barratry, and withholding from mortgage
repossession. Business and other sophisticated aircraft often
possess sufficient range, navigation equipment and communication
capabilities for sustained overwater flight—meaning that they can be
delivered to a secluded hangar in a remote country with a minimum of
expense and preparation.
VessEx's aircraft recovery services are two-fold:
location and recovery. For clients searching for their
aircraft, the VessEx team brings highly skilled investigative
techniques and worldwide local knowledge to the task of tracking
an aircraft from its Last Known Point.
the aircraft is located, a plan of extraction is developed that
includes a number of contingency-based options. A VessEx
extraction team can be placed on location allowing the required
surveillance and planning to be performed locally. VessEx
usually seeks to enlist the aid of local insiders, often a
necessary component of a successful aircraft extraction.
After proper preparation, including necessary arrangements with
authorities and other locals, the confirmation or delivery of
adequate fuel, performance of any required repairs, and the
selection of proper weather and airport conditions, the team
will board the aircraft and deliver it to the desired location.
Experience You Can Count On
of VessEx's tracking, surveillance and extraction activities are
led by a VessEx team leader with over forty years of aviation
experience. In addition, all pilots, co-pilots, and other
required crewmembers used by VessEx for aircraft delivery are
fully rated and current in type. In most cases, VessEx
pilots possess 10-15 years of airline experience and are
personally known to VessEx management.
