When it comes time to sell an airplane, many owners are faced with the question of whether to use a broker or handle the sale themselves. Although there is a potential cost associated with working through a broker, the process of engaging a broker can be incredibly beneficial and provide far greater returns than attempting to sell the plane on one’s own.
Engaging a broker to handle the sale is the surest way to maximize the aircraft’s resale value. Aircraft brokers are professionally trained and knowledgeable experts that are well-versed in the aviation market and understand the various makes and models of planes on the market. They are intimately aware of how to best price the aircraft based on its condition, the current demand for its model, and its market value. Brokers can advise owners on how

On September 1st the FAA approved several Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) for a 100-octane unleaded fuel (G100UL) to be used in all spark-ignition engines and their associated airframes. Well known manufacturer General Aviation Modifications Inc (GAMI) is the architect behind this huge win for general aviation and the environment. The fuel was originally approved for use in smaller aircraft such as the Cessna 172 and aircraft with lower compression engines which meant that only 30-40% of avgas consumption could potentially be G100UL. Now, 100% of piston aircraft are able to purchase the STC and begin using the fuel which will reduce emissions and is much safer for pilots and ground crew to be around than traditional avgas.
G100UL was a venture 13 years in the making. Testing and development started in 2009 following the announcement
Everyone knows that flying commercially comes with its share of frustrations. However, the Air Travel Consumer Report (ATCR) released on Friday by the U.S Department of Transportation found a 34.9% increase in air travel service complaints from May 2022 to June 2022. Even more shocking is that the number of total complaints against airlines is now up nearly 270% from pre-pandemic levels.
The overwhelming majority of customer complaints and frustrations can be attributed to the labor shortage stemming from layoffs during the COVID-19 pandemic. This staffing challenge is not unique to aviation, but it creates a ripple effect throughout the national airspace system unlike other industries. The shortage of pilots, gate agents, ground handlers, and air traffic controllers has increased delays and

The Overture is designed to carry between 65 and 80 passengers at speeds up to Mach 1.7.
