September 19, 2018 – Lincoln, Nebr. – Performance Aircraft announced today that it will soon break ground on a new facility that will house its Flight Training Center and Aircraft Sales team. Conveniently located next to the General Aviation ramp on West Kearney Ave., the new facility will include roughly 6,000 square feet of office space and a large aircraft hangar.

“We are so pleased to announce that we will be starting construction on this new facility,” stated company Founder/President Bill Heckathorn. “We have been growing significantly over the past few years, and we have plans for even more aggressive growth in the next few years. This new facility will be the perfect space for our company to expand and serve customers.”

The company recently purchased a brand new Cirrus SR20, as well as a fleet of matching Cessna 172 Skyhawks and a Piper Seminole. The newly-acquired aircraft will dramatically increase scheduling availability and flexibility for flight training customers. Overall, the company’s flight training center expects to more than triple its number of active flight training students over the next few years, while expanding its aircraft sales team and launching additional ancillary services.

“The current need for pilots is unprecedented, and we expect to serve many more career-oriented flight training students over the next few years,” Heckathorn said. “Additionally, our commitment to top-notch service is appealing for people who see aviation as a way to achieve more freedom and flexibility in their business and personal lives. We are seeing a lot of customers who learn to fly with us then buy their own aircraft.”

Construction of the new facility is being overseen by Constructive Enterprises and is currently scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2019.

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.
