Why it Matters to Finance Aircraft Through Specialized Lenders

The aircraft market is a complex forum of ideas, practices, and processes.To make matters more complicated, the peak market crashed during the economic downturn of 2008, leaving sales sluggish, encouraging value to plummet, and leading to an excess of inventory and vast oversupply.

In its optimistic rebound, the current aircraft market is a fast-paced, exciting industry. When you’re in the market for an aircraft because of causes for concerns to efficiency and increased value on your time, a fast-pace can ironically work in the opposite direction. There’s never been a better time to slow down and take your time to connect with a network of dedicated and specialized lenders that can help you to navigate the aircraft market with confidence and ease.

It’s of benefit to you to invest the time in dealing with a specialized lender like the team at Travelers Financial because we hold a wealth of knowledge about the in’s and out’s of the industry. We stake our reputation on our ability every single day. We can help.



Being Canada’s leader in aircraft financing means that we utilize our close and professional relationships in the industry, together with our years of experience to help impassioned pilots realize their dreams of aircraft ownership. Control is one of our strong points as specialized lenders.

In a rebounding market, temptations to buy can be high for a number of reasons. Pre-owned aircraft can sell for as much as half the price of their value in 2007 and as a result, these aircraft are within reach. This ushers in the notion that these types of opportunities may be out of reach again in a short time. But, low prices are not a good enough reason to justify a speedy purchase. Exhibiting a calm and collected sense of control and reflection is what we do best.

Rushing into a marketplace with little knowledge of the processes is why specialized aircraft lenders are the right choice for helping to make your aircraft decisions. We are well-known for our ability to:

  • Manage risk
  • Ask the right questions
  • Build meaningful relationships

Exhibiting a strong control on the complexities of the aircraft market is the first and foremost requirement of qualified aircraft lenders – without control, the many intricacies of financing, leasing, and owning aircrafts can be left undiscussed, leading to confusion, frustration, as well as lost time and money.


Many shoppers allot their purchasing power to their chief pilot – and while their opinions are invaluable and should always be heavily considered, pilots only represent one side of the coin. Enlisting the help of a financial expert allows your decision-making processes to tune out straight-edged emotion and save the bells and whistles of features and amenities for later.

As specialized lenders, we encourage our clients to undertake a tiered decision-making process based on our experience navigating the aircraft market.

  • Identify your choice type of aircraft
  • Build the right team
  • Prepping buy-in and scheduling your purchase
  • Securing funding
  • Manage risks
  • Find hangar/storage space for your aircraft to give it a good home


Being able to demonstrate expertise in this field is what separates us from our competition. Specialized lenders have success because of time-tested practices and protocol that deliver positive results.



We understand your passion for the skies because we share your passion.

We remain dedicated to specialized aircraft lending because we can see and easily quantify the results of our efforts to bring the excitement of aircraft ownership to the lives of our clients. Further to these interpersonal gains, we’re increasingly dedicated to understanding and developing our expertise on the natural growth and recovery of the industry.

Worldwide economic growth is a considerable force in air transport and recreational industries, and dedicating ourselves to fully understanding these economic and financial segments gives us the expertise to connect the dots and provide meaningful communication and counsel to our cherished client-base.
