Question: Is there financing available for building a new experimental airplane?

Answer: Yes, we have multiple options for financing aircraft kits. This type of financing typically has higher interest rates and shorter terms until the aircraft is completed. However, once finished the lenders can refinance into a more traditional type aircraft loan product with longer terms and lower rates. For factory-assisted, quick-build programs, there are several options as lenders approach these similar to other experimental aircraft.  Please feel free to reach out to us if you have specific questions about an airplane kit or want to know more about the loan products we offer.
