Now Available: Winter 2019 Aircraft Market Reports

January 24, 2019

2018 was an unusually active year. With the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act being signed into law in December 2017, a greater number of optimistic and tax-motivated buyers entered the market and kept the markets strong throughout 2018. In fact, most of the aircraft models discussed in our Winter 2019 Aircraft Market Reports strong activity throughout 2018. With lower-than-average inventory levels for pre-owned aircraft in early 2019, we are still seeing a lot of buyer activity. Many of the sellers from the later months of 2018 are now looking for an aircraft to replace the one they sold. Historical trends indicate that we can expect buyer activity to increase as we head into spring and summer months, making it a good time to consider selling. Learn More...

Year-End Buying and Selling Season

November 16, 2018

We often talk to aircraft owners who are surprised that the 4th Quarter is typically the most active time of year for aircraft transactions. 2018 has already been a record year, and we expect year-end to be uncommonly strong. Buyers start getting more serious... As year-end starts to loom, potential buyers usually become more serious about making a purchase decision, with the hopes of accepting delivery of their aircraft on or before December 31. Many of the potential buyers at any given time also have their own aircraft to sell, so the markets will fill up quickly and aircraft will be bought and sold at a faster pace than other times of the year. Time to buy or sell? If you have a plane to buy or sell, NOW is the time to start the process and take full advantage of a stronger market. If you are thinking of selling this year, it’s important to get your aircraft onto the market quickly with a strong presentation that will attract motivated buyers and set your aircraft apart from all the others on the market.

What satisfied customers are saying...

  • I did not expect that the sale would go quickly, in fact, I anticipated that I would have a couple of extra months to fly the plane as we waited for a purchaser to come along. The marketing that was done on my behalf created an immediate interest in the plane. This transaction was easy on me, as the Performance team produced amazing results in record time with very little input on my part. In my opinion, there is no better team to represent you when you buy or sell an aircraft.
    – Thomas M. Belford, Nebraska
  • My first sale with Performance Aircraft was inked in four business days, for more than the listing price! The second, a Beechcraft King Air 300LW, was an impossible task—after five brokerage firms unsuccessfully tried, Performance Aircraft delivered! They understand the market, the people involved, and have so much integrity with both sides of the transaction. Theirs is a world wide reach, with an unbelievable staff. 
    – Tony Spears, Texas
  • I trusted the team at Performance Aircraft to help me identify an airplane that fit my mission, budget, and goals.  I'm happy to say that they exceeded all my expectations by keeping me informed throughout every step of the process.  You can trust that this team is not out to sell you an airplane but to be a lifelong aviation partner.  I would definitely use them again for selling or buying an aircraft.  Thank you!
    – Eric Leatherman, Nebraska
  • As a first time buyer, I was nervous about the entire process–plane selection, negotiations, paperwork, and closing. After my first contact with Stacey at Performance Aircraft, I knew they were the right fit to help me. She quickly made me feel at ease with everything. Their website is positively the best and most comprehensive in its class.  The process was smooth and the plane was exactly as it was represented. I couldn't be happier!
    – Dennis Cooley, Florida
  • Your team did exactly what you said you would do, which is a very rare trait in today's business world. I would recommend you guys highly...you have integrity.
    – Tony Wagner, Florida
  • I purchased an airplane from Performance Aircraft a few years ago and have also utilized some of their Flight Training Services since that time. I have developed a respect for their professional expertise in both their Training and Sales side of their business.
    – Mike Kelly, Nebraska
  • Because of your professional team and alliances with other top companies, you will be my first call when looking to purchase another airplane. Thank you again.
    – Tom Saxon, Florida
  • I would tell my friends they can trust Performance Aircraft to provide honest, ethical, and enthusiastic service. Bill found an aircraft that best suits our needs while staying well within our budget. The whole process was practically stress-free. And, the post-purchase training and follow-ups have been phenomenal.
    – Matt Young, Wyoming
  • Your communication here is very good and I really appreciated your honesty. Your follow up is awesome. Bill knew the value of airplanes as well as anyone I have met in the industry and I have been flying for over 30 years. You guys did a great job communicating with me throughout the process and kept the plane moving to closing. I was very pleased with everything.
    – Randy Christo, Nebraska
  • Their knowledge of the market allowed us to feel confident that they understood aircraft values. Additionally, the personality of the marketing team made this an easy decision that we would be treated well and communicated with frequently on their progress.
