Reason for selling
The platform is generating revenue in a profitable niche and believe it would be straightforward to grow to $2m+ in revenues in 2023 with a bit of effort in digital marketing, however the core skills of the team are more operational as opposed to sales and marketing. Also the scope of the platform has changed from acting as a broker for helicopter charter to providing other air charter services including private jets which is a much larger market requiring a greater effort in SEO and marketing.
It could be an operational partner who wants to take a hands on approach or they can can a step back and allow the founder to continue to develop the business while providing strategic oversight and help.
Aspirations & growth opportunities
I believe it is possible to get to $2m in revenues in 2023 (around 250 charters) with a bit of effort in digital marketing and it is possible to reach £100M in GMV bookings in 5 years (full financial model available). We believe with a content budget of $10K ~ $20K a year it should be possible to bring in over 40,000 monthly visits through organic content.
Commission on bookings (typically 15%)
We don't find users to be a very valuable metric as we buy charter flights from aircraft operators and sell to customers. If you mean total customers then it's around 20 but they have generated around $250k in revenues since launch. (We cater for the mobility needs of affluent, time-poor consumers who want to travel by helicopter or private jet. These tend to be either C-suite business person (or organiser) or High Net Worth individuals or groups. )
