Question: What’s riskier than a hangar full of expired sublease agreements and stagnant rates?
(An empty one.)

Attend “The Essentials of Hangar Subleasing” and take command of your real estate holdings.

An FBOs most valuable improvements are the revenue producing hangars and office space located on its leasehold. Yet, with fuel sales a perpetual focus for operations, it’s no wonder the process – and pitfalls – associated with subleasing get overlooked. The result is stagnant hangar rates, tenuous FBO-tenant relations, and virtually unlimited exposure when aircraft incidents occur. There is a better way.

The Essentials of Hangar Subleasing

On day one, you’ll learn the essentials of hangar subleasing, and explore in details, the provisions of a well-constructed hangar sublease. Attendees will learn to parse, provision-by-provision, whether a business, financial, or legal decision is in play, and how to appropriately apply risk mitigation and revenue optimization techniques to each. On day two, a negotiation focused workshop on hangar subleasing will feature how to separate decision-makers from influencers, and how to negotiate with each. Additionally, proven techniques to keep your hangars full will be revealed, and defined in detail. For more details, please review the below agenda.

Interested but perhaps reluctant?

Hangar subleases seem like a rainy day project. It never seems like a priority because frankly, it’s overwhelming. Sure, you have a few hangar vacancies, but it’s not that bad right? And besides, you haven’t raised your hangar rates in the past few years…if you did now, surely you’ll lose tenants. Or maybe, you don’t have hangar sublease agreements at all because well, those are costly to create. And besides, if you tried to get your tenants to sign an agreement, they probably wouldn’t sign it anyway.

Contact FBO Partners to learn more, and see what you’ve been leaving on the table all these years.
