Question: Is there financing for SLSA and ELSA ready-to-fly aircraft?
Answer: Yes, we have lending options for most LSA’s. Since these aircraft do not typically have book values, lenders look for at least 25 registered with the FAA and three comparable listings. If the make and model does not meet this requirement, a desktop appraisal would be needed. AOPA Aviation Finance will help coordinate any appraisal with the lender.
Question: Does aircraft financing also include gyrocopters?
Currently we do not have lending options available specifically for gyrocopters. These aircraft tend to be difficult to value with a limited market. We do offer our Flexible Aviation Loan, however. This product does not take the aircraft into consideration. Its flexibility allows it to be used for aircraft that do not fit a more traditional lending model.
