Experienced and Thorough

Professional & Detail Oriented Aircraft Brokerage

Maximizing Value

Whether buying or selling aircraft, I spend hours meticulously reviewing logs, repairs, and conducting flight tests to ensure that every detail is accounted for. This thorough analysis allows me to maximize the cash received or reduce the purchase price, providing you with the best possible value.

Keep Things Moving

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

Leveraging Existing Laws

Purchasing or selling an aircraft is a complex process, and many pilots and owners make unwise financial moves due to a lack of understanding of existing laws. I ensure that your aircraft purchase or sale is handled correctly, helping you navigate the legal complexities and avoid costly pitfalls.

Training and Competence

With my professional aircraft training, you'll be fully trained and ready to handle your new aircraft with confidence and skill. Let's upgrade (or downgrade) you into the right aircraft that suits your mission perfectly!

Rich Pickett's 40+ years of flying experience, and over 8,000-hours in a wide variety of aircraft makes him adept at spotting the gems among the lemons.

Rich has successfully navigated the aircraft resell market helping clients find the aircraft that suits their needs. Never intent on letting a pilot 'settle' for a plane, Rich goes the extra distance to ensure that he's found the right plane 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.
