To us, buying or selling an airplane is more than a transaction — it’s a commitment to partnership. With nearly 40 years of experience and global knowledge of the market, we understand the nuances of timing and pricing. For aircraft sellers, we negotiate carefully to maximize your return.
As a buyer, you’ll understand acquisition value and long-term ownership benefits. Our transparent process, from pre-purchase inspections to aircraft trade-in opportunities, gives you the edge to buy, sell and trade confidently with an experienced partner on your side.
Every aircraft receives in-house technical and quality evaluations, and our dedicated Director of Maintenance oversees every transaction.
Our sales and acquisition expertise is further strengthened by our charter, aircraft management and aircraft ownership experience through our sister company, Omni Air Transport.
Because of our financial stability and strength, we have the ability to accept trade-ins.
We understand the marketplace — wherever your goals take you.
If getting you in the exact right aircraft means refurbishing the paint and interior, we’ll coordinate with the industry’s best.
