FAQs about financing upgrades

What are my options for financing avionics upgrades and engine overhauls?

Refinance vs our Upgrade Your Wings Program

Depending on scope of work we may have several options. If there is equity in the aircraft a traditional aircraft refinance is an option for financing upgrades and overhauls. If there is little to no available equity in the aircraft, the Upgrade Your Wings Program may be an option, with financing up to 120% LTV.

Call and speak to one of our analysts so they can help you decide which loan would be right for your specific situation.

What upgrades do lenders find value in?

Aircraft lenders will generally add value for most avionics upgrades and major engine overhauls. Aircraft lenders will not usually add value for paint and interior. It is always a good idea to work with an AOPA Aviation Finance analyst to establish the aircraft value from a lenders view using one of the online valuation resources. 

Caroline Childs was amazing to work with. Being that this is our first aircraft purchase, she was very helpful and patient.
