Professional & Detail Oriented Aircraft Brokerage

Maximizing Value

Whether I'm buying or selling aircraft, I spend hours pouring through logs, repairs, and flight test each one. This ensures that I am able to maximize cash received, or reduce the purchase price.

Keep Things Moving

It's easy to have an aircraft languish on the tarmac or in the hangar because a broker isn't doing their job. I actively seek buyers or sellers to ensure that you're doing what you love—flying—as soon as possible.

Leveraging Existing Laws

Purchasing or selling an aircraft is a convoluted process. Many times I've seen pilots and owners make unwise financial moves based on existing laws. I make sure that your aircraft purchase or sale is done right.

Training and Competence

Combined with my professional Aircraft Training, you'll be trained and ready to handle your new aircraft with confidence and skill. Let's upgrade (or downgrade) you into the right aircraft for you!

The exhaustive and detailed process may add some time on your path towards aircraft ownership, but the results are worth it.

Enjoy your aircraft without feeling that you need to upgrade (or downgrade) immediately.

Rich’s thirst for knowledge across a broad range of aircraft and general aviation means he’s more than simply a competent pilot. He has a wealth of information that I tap into on a regular basis, and I’ve been flying for more than 50 years. Couple that with his jovial personality and can do attitude, and you’ve got a top notch instructor and world class broker. He’s highly intelligent, patient, courteous, and a pleasure to work with, always. We have flown more than 150 hours together, even across the Atlantic and through Europe. I recommend him highly.
