By Doug Gollan, April 19, 2022

FXSolutions promises proprietary aircraft comparison technology. It replaces Sojourn Aviation in the Directional portfolio alongside Flexjet, Sentient Jet, FXAir, and PrivateFly

Directional Aviation is rebranding its Sojourn Aviation aircraft brokerage as FXSolutions.

According to a press release, the company “developed a proprietary aircraft comparison tool to help private aviation clients take the next step in their aircraft acquisition journey.”

“FXSolutions offers industry-competitive advantages not found elsewhere, including a hands-on approach to identifying aircraft inventory niche markets and the decades of collective experience of its leadership team. In addition to the team’s vast aviation knowledge, this interactive tool is particularly vital given today’s inventory challenges driven by high demand,” says Directional.

Other Directional brands included Flexjet, Sentient Jet, FXAir, PrivateFly, and Halo.

Leading the new unit as Managing Partner is Matthew Doyle.

Doyle brings more than 20 years of experience in aircraft sales from Flexjet and Flight Options.

Joining Doyle will be Partner Ed McDonald, formerly of Sojourn, and Partner Clay Wilcox, formerly of Flexjet.

Sojourn will be absorbed into the new brokerage service. 

“It was never a simple process to find the best aircraft to meet your needs and negotiate the best price, and the market has changed in a way that makes using a professional brokerage team like ours the best way to navigate the process,” said Doyle.

FXSolutions uses its “unique market data system and contacts” to stay on top of aircraft availability.

As part of the process, FXSolutions manages demonstration flights, pre-purchase inspections, and all phases of the closing process.

Doyle added, “Our team of technical experts have such a depth of knowledge and experience that is unmatched in handling the inspection and due diligence during an aircraft transaction. To add to that, their knowledge in global aircraft sales is becoming increasingly sought after in this environment where inventory is tight.”
