Accelerate your Aircraft Search

Aircraft Acquisition Services

Buying an aircraft is no simple task.

To find the right plane at the right price, you need to answer important questions about market values, equipment and upgrades, performance, contracts, inspections, and more. Addressing all of these questions is often very frustrating and time-consuming.

Performance Aircraft can answer your questions and manage the purchasing process, providing you with a more successful outcome.

Our Aircraft Acquisition Services assist you in selecting and purchasing the best plane for your needs while attending to all the details needed to ensure a smooth, enjoyable experience.

Mission Discovery

Mission Discovery

Whether you are searching for your first plane or upgrading your fleet, it is critical to have a thorough understanding of your mission.

As we map out the course for your aircraft acquisition, we will begin with a Mission Discovery Session, where we will discuss many things, including:


  • How you plan to use your new aircraft
  • Your budget range
  • Your flight training and experience level
  • Aircraft financing options
  • Insurance options

Aircraft Research and Selection

Aircraft Research and Selection

Our market research services are the key to your successful acquisition. Not only do we provide information on various aircraft that will meet your needs, but we also conduct a market analysis of any candidate aircraft. This market analysis provides further insight into their appraised value next to appraised values of comparable planes on the market. To maximize your options, we also contact dealers and send mailers to aircraft owners to discover any unadvertised aircraft or upcoming trade-ins.

We conduct detailed market research on a daily basis and track this information in our exclusive market research database. Using our extensive market data, we will create an in-depth Market Analysis that helps identify the right aircraft at the right price.

The Purchasing Process

The Purchasing Process

As your representative, we will guide and consult with you through the entire purchasing process. We will prepare, present, and negotiate offers on candidate aircraft, evaluating all deals and contracts to represent your best interests. Once a purchase agreement is in place, we will coordinate the pre-purchase inspection and arrange the closing details involved with escrow and the FAA.

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 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.
    – Skyhawk Flying Club, Nebraska
