Our loan experts have worked with tens of thousands of owners and pilots just like you, helping them save time and money and avoid many acquisition headaches. We will be on your side through the process. It’s like having your own Aircraft Purchasing Department. See some of our most recent transactions.
With interest rates now rising, there’s no better time to look at our options. We can help with new purchases or review your existing loan and potentially provide options that can save you thousands every month.
We take the time to understand your needs and explain the differences in loan structures, rates and options, helping you make the most informed decision. And let’s not forget, saving you money!
Get access to lenders, not accessible to the general public, that specialize in structuring loan terms tailored to your unique needs. If standard 85% LTV and 20-year terms are too restrictive for you, we can frequently work with lenders to come up with creative solutions to meet your specific needs.
Unlike many general aviation finance brokers, we work with over a dozen different lenders. We have leveraged AOPA’s reputation to provide access to the best lenders that cater specifically to the aviation community.
We know not all pilots are the same when it comes to buying aircraft. We offer a variety of loans that can be custom-tailored to meet your specific aircraft financing needs.
While not everyone can get a loan, we truly excel at helping to find or create funding solutions not readily available. If your situation is unique, or if you would simply like to know all the various options out there, our depth of lending relationships can uniquely help you.
