Aircraft Sales Assistance
For over 50 years, the way aircraft have been sold has pretty much remained the same. Virtual Airplane Broker’s sales assistance service has changed all that. Finally, a revolutionary service that is designed to do what is best for you, the owner. We sell your plane for FULL market value, in a quick, hassle-free manner that doesn’t disrupt your life. Our innovative tools and techniques ensure the best possible sale experience.
Sure... you could sell it on your own, but you might be missing something important.
How it works
Once you’ve created your free account, you’ll have the tools to get started. Complete the online questionnaire to get us information about your plane so we can help you in the best way possible. Just answer the questions and you’ll be on your way.
Once you request your listing to be activated, you’ll be assigned a dedicated aircraft sales professional (we call him your “Wing-man”) who will visit with you about the value of your plane and any time constraints you may have. Together, we’ll create an overall strategy that will make sure the job gets done in a manner that is best for you. We call this a pre-launch consultation and it is well worth the time spent.
What’s your situation?
Every situation is unique. Your needs may not be the same as every other aircraft seller. That may sound strange, but think about it. Are you selling so you can upgrade to a bigger, faster aircraft? Maybe you already purchased a new one and you need the hangar space. It could be that you inherited the plane, have no idea what to do with it and you can’t even fly it. Maybe it’s just that you don’t fly that much and fail to see the point in continuing ownership. As you can see, each of these examples requires a very different strategy.
We focus on a customized solution designed to do what is best for you. Our team of professionals understands and can identify with a wide range of scenarios and are equipped to guide you down the right path.
What about the price?
The aviation industry has reached many peaks and valleys over the years. It’s important to work with someone that is aware of the current trend of the market – and more specifically, how that applies to your aircraft and situation. More than that, pricing is an art. Anyone who tells you exactly what your plane is worth is blowing at least a little smoke. Its worth what someone will pay for it when they will pay it. Here’s the challenge…price it high enough to not leave your hard earned money on the table, but low enough to get the job done. Our team understands the complexities of aircraft values, knows how to balance speed vs price and can help you choose the right strategy.
This is where the process is magical as your Wing-man takes the lead…no phone calls to take, no emails to answer and yet you have a buyer. The sorting process of locating the right person for your plane happens seamlessly. Just like a great autopilot, it’ll take you where you want to go effortlessly. Your Wing-man will let you know when there is a reasonable offer and if you accept it he’ll introduce you to the qualified buyer.
Now it’s time to finalize the sale. The only thing we will need from you at this point s to make your plane available for an inspection and of course get ready to receive your money. That’s right, the buyer will be paying you directly.
Sale documentation can be very confusing on your own. What paperwork do I need? Where is the title to my plane? How will I be paid? These questions are just a few of many. The good news is that you don’t have to think about it at all. Once again, your trusty, and best friend by now Wing-man has your six. You don’t have to think about it at all. He will tell you exactly what you need to do and will prepare the necessary papers to complete the sale. He will also make sure that only trusted methods

What our Customers are saying...
We have had many attempts at selling our aircraft with only frustrating results, endless hours of answering questions, and in the end we still had the aircraft. We finally decided we needed help and found Virtual Airplane Broker. We quickly received a response when we requested a valuation of our aircraft which was provided with the listing. VAB researched a dozen of similar aircraft and gave us an informed idea of what each price point would do for us, and after the transaction was completed I realize he was spot on. After submitting pictures and describing the aircraft our job was complete. To my surprise we didn’t have to answer one phone call except the one where they explained that an owner has placed a deposit! As first time sellers of an aircraft the VAB team walked us through all the documents needed in the transaction and he even produced all the documents needed for the purchasers financing company. In my opinion I believe Virtual Airplane Broker provided an Awesome service for a more than fair, in addition to removing all the hassle and headache of selling an aircraft!!!
This is a story about selling a plane without professional help. It was 2013 when I really decided to sell my 1981 172P Cessna. I took on the task with one paid advertisement along with Craig’s List, on the paid ad most of the contacts were brokers offering half of the current value. The people calling from craigslist were mostly new pilots and student pilots so I spent a significant amount of time on the phone. I ended up selling the plane to someone who my mechanic knew and referred me to. I had learned of Virtual Airplane Broker during the early part of the sale in which the airplane sold. I wish I knew of this program a lot earlier it would have saved me an enormous amount of grief. I showed the airplane to 23 different people, took a countless number of phone calls, and spent a lot of time researching the current value. My experience selling an airplane as an individual was a nightmare and I wouldn’t do it or recommend anyone to do it. The plane sold on 1-29-15 which was a two year job for me. I highly recommend contacting VAB for help. You will be glad you did.
Calling Virtual Airplane Broker was the best decision I made in selling my airplane. They made the process quite simple while swiftly finding the right buyer. I couldn’t have asked for an easier transaction at such a reasonable cost. I am confident you will find Virtual Airplane Broker to be not just professional but also a personable experience. Thank you VAB!
