Pegasus provides a multidisciplinary solution to the development and acquisition of aviation assets. Over the years, we have established working relationships with local authorities and professionals in key markets and on a national basis. Pegasus is a creditable provider of development and capital market services.Since most projects are located on governmental owned properties, local authorities are seeking way to share in project revenues. Pegasus has a solid reputation in structuring successful Public-Private Partnerships to the benefit of the project and the governmental entity, including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Miami Dade Aviation Department.
One of the key elements to successfully complete an on-airport project is the ability to navigate the regulatory environments of airports, the local governments, and the agencies involved in the project’s financing. As with the structuring of Public-Private Partnerships, Pegasus has developed a solid reputation in the ability to structure sophisticated municipal tax-exempt and taxable bond financing to the benefit of the project. In many instances, Pegasus has been the first to utilized structure bond financing at key airports, along with the rating agencies and major bond underwriters.
Based on our past experience, Pegasus is also experienced in conducting due diligence on investment opportunity, either for its own account or for potential investors.
We assisted Million Air in developing a strategy to acquire and finance a Fixed Base Operation (FBO) at Gulfport, MS (GPT) and Tallahassee, FL (TLH) along with the expansionary financing of their HQ FBO Houston’s Hobby Airport (HOU) expansion. We prepared a publically-rated tax-exempt bond issue to finance this multi-state project.
