Aircraft Brokerage

We provide sellers with access to aircraft buyers utilizing our exclusive, decades of developing, global broker network. We find the right buyer for your aircraft using industry standard marketing techniques, broker relationships, and physical presence of having multiple airport locations across the United States.

Our aggressive marketing approach and sales techniques put your aircraft in front of the most possible prospects which will help contribute to a lower time on the market and eventually sell your aircraft.

Once a seller has agreed to make an offer on your aircraft, we take care of the purchase agreement, negotiate transaction details, FAA documentation, and pre-buy inspections (if required). If a pre-buy inspection is conducted our sales professionals will maintain full project management and report back any development throughout the process. We act as advisors during this process and allow you to make the best decisions during the process.

Aircraft Acquisitions

Choosing the right aircraft for your needs is a crucial decision that will have lasting effects long after you have made your purchase. Modern Aviation helps buyers arrive at the right choice when choosing an aircraft that fits your mission.

We have a proven process that involves a comprehensive pre-purchase evaluation understanding FAA, IRS, TSA, and State and Federal compliance requirements. We provide a fully encompassing aircraft comparison that covers items such as range, fuel efficiency, maintenance costs, residual value projections, and overall value. This process allows you to truly understand what aircraft fits your needs for yourself, your business, or your family.

During this process we completely represent you, the buyer, and offer no bias to any aircraft. Our top priority is identifying an aircraft that meets or exceeds your expectations and requirements.

Before any acquisition we mutually agree on a flat fee before the process begins to ensure impartiality and peace of mind. This way you will know we are presenting the best option that fits your needs.

Aircraft Appraisals

Owning an asset, such as an aircraft, is important and so is understanding the market your aircraft falls under. Similar to other pieces of complex equipment, they too depreciate at varying increments. It is important to receive an expert valuation of your aircraft and a professional opinion of what to expect in the coming months regarding your aircraft.

At Modern Aviation we rely on a proven method of comparing your aircraft attributes to similar aircraft that have sold recently. We also rely on years of experience and state-of-the art industry valuation tools to accurately value your aircraft given the current market.
