Aircraft Sales

Through the years we’ve refined our aircraft sales and brokerage services to make them efficient and effective. Our process moves smoothly through a well-defined set of steps that includes:

Initial Preparation
We have your aircraft professionally photographed, provide recent “sales comps” and asking price recommendations, develop a specification sheet and sales brochure, and discuss sales procedures.

Marketing Campaign
We advertise in print and digital media, reach out to dealers, brokers, and manufacturers as well as contact aircraft owners and operators, place the aircraft on multiple listing services, show the aircraft to buyers, and coordinate demonstration flights, keeping you well-informed throughout the process.

Evaluation and Offers
We qualify prospects, submit offers to you and provide input, prepare the offer letter response, review the purchase agreement and make recommendations, coordinate with the title company regarding the deposit, and consult with legal counsel as needed.

Pre-Purchase Inspection
We make arrangements for the pre-purchase inspection, monitor the inspection process, review the inspection report and make recommendations, handle the resolution of inspection issues with the buyer, and coordinate aircraft acceptance documentation.
