Brokerage

Sell your airplane with LaFave Aviation!

Let’s be honest, selling an airplane can be a frustrating and arduous task. In fact, it is often much closer to a real estate transaction than an automotive transaction. Once listed on popular platforms such as Trade-a-Plane and Barnstormers, sellers are often inundated with dozens of calls and emails from tire-kickers with no intention of purchasing the aircraft for a fair price. Once a serious buyer is found, there are logbook reviews, inspections, appraisals, contracts and escrow. By the end of the process, many sellers are left frustrated and exhausted. Let us help!

LaFave Aviation is committed to making this process easier for both the seller and the buyer. We list and advertise your aircraft across a variety of platforms. We answer the dozens of calls from tire-kickers. We help to arrange for inspections, reviews and appraisals. We work to get the best price for your aircraft. Above all, we are committed to providing unmatched service and value to owners of piston single and light twin aircraft.

That all sounds great, but how much does it cost?

Great question! Unlike many other aircraft brokers who are focused on light jets and turbo-props, LaFave Aviation is specifically focused on piston single and light twin aircraft. As such, our services and fees are directly related to the needs of our clients! Put simply, we work to be the best value in aircraft brokerage for piston aircraft.

Our fee is 5% commission on the sales price of the aircraft with a minimum commission of $1,000 and a maximum of $5,000. This means that any aircraft sale over $100,000 is still just $5,000 commission.

LIMITED TIME ONLY: WE ARE OFFERING BROKERAGE SERVICES FOR A FLAT COMMISSION OF $799.

In addition to the sales commission, LaFave Aviation provides the following listing options:
