Lee Rohde Offers Expert Advice on Aircraft Acquisition on Asset Insight Podcast

June 25, 2020, (Portsmouth, NH) – When venturing into the world of private aviation, it’s important to have an experienced consultant by your side who can help you understand the ins and outs of acquisition and represent your specific interests. That’s why Lee Rohde founded Essex Aviation Group: to advise aviation-related entities on aircraft acquisition, strategic planning and financial, operational and management-related matters. In the latest episode of the Asset Insight Podcast, Rohde shared expert advice on how to make an informed private aviation decision with host Anthony Kioussis.

The Asset Insight Podcast is an aircraft ownership lifecycle podcast, sponsored by Asset Insight, one of the world’s leading providers of asset optimization tools. The company specializes in supporting entities with a financial interest in an asset through valuation, analytics, audits, specialty services and consultation, both nationally and worldwide.

The episode covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Private transportation options
  • Tips on how to select an aircraft model that meets your travel requirements
  • The complexities of refurbishing pre-owned aircraft
  • The steps included in the pre-purchase inspection process

“I had a great time talking with Tony and appreciated the opportunity to participate in Asset Insight’s wonderful podcast series,” said Rohde. “Acquiring private aircraft isn’t as simple as choosing which model you like and purchasing it on the spot; there’s a lot that goes into making a private aviation decision. My hope is that the insights I was able to share on the podcast are educative to Asset Insight’s audience, and that they help people understand why working with a private aviation consultant and other industry advisors as a coordinated team is so essential.”

You can find the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also listen on the Asset Insight Podcast website.
