Selling Your Aircraft
You can trust Norfolk Aviation’s acquisition team to use the most efficient and thorough methods when it comes to the acquisition of aircraft. We aim to acquire the right small aircraft, at the best price, with nothing but full disclosure every time.
You have so many choices when selling your aircraft…
Aircraft brokers are available all over the internet.
But how many of those brokers are full-time professionals?
How many of them have home offices located inside of an international airport?
How many provide extensive communication? Do they answer the phone, return emails?
The answer to all of the above is: NOT MANY.
Norfolk Aviation is one of the few remaining dedicated and experienced Aircraft Brokers with representatives on the ground (and in the sky) ready to make things happen for our clients.
When you’re ready to sell your aircraft, its important to hire an active broker with extensive resources. Virtual brokers are typically part time, may have a good looking website and promise many things but only Norfolk Aviation will truly deliver.
