Proven Successful Aircraft Sales:

The process of selling any service or tangible item shares one common denominator; disciplined repetition and multiple hours of focussed effort. A few questions to consider before selling your aircraft are included below: 

  1. Does your time allow for you to answer all incoming calls, at various hours of the day or night?   
  2. Do you have the time and patience to spend countless hours returning emails, responding to the same questions over and over? 
  3. Are you ready for the advertising expense and do you have the desire or the aptitude to effectively market a plane?  
  4. The average number of callers you will receive for every serious buyer on a plane is 10 to 1.  Can you freely sacrifice the time to sort through the "tire kickers" until you find the perfect, qualified buyer for your aircraft?

We welcome the time to greet each caller with the assistance they deserve and we respect each and every caller as though they are the first and last buyer for your aircraft. 

Through years of experience, Lear Stevens Aviation has developed the expertise to successfully match the right buyer with the appropriate seller's aircraft to expedite a final sale.  With your busy lifestyle, why not let Lear Stevens Aviation Services take this cumbersome, time consuming task off your hands, all the while meeting your market expectations?   

Our first step is to know your plane inside and out, and for marketing purposes, in ways possibly not considered before. We'll ask questions and seek information about your aircraft that previously, may have been considered unimportant. Once you're comfortable with us, and we are content knowing everything about your plane, we'll advertise your aircraft on our web site as well as other popular aviation websites.  We will also screen the callers to ensure only qualified buyers are presented to you to save you time.  

If your plane is brought to our field, we will provide aircraft management services at no charge to you besides fuel and hanger costs.  Our goal is to skilfully and knowledgeably show your plane, and conduct demonstration flights by fully qualified and insured CFI's.    

Financing and insurance are always concerns for buyers.  With our connections, we will walk your buyer through the process comfortably. We provide the escrow company and title search connections, and follow through with all the FAA rules and regulations to closing.  Last minute glitches do occur occasionally, but we work hard to make sure nothing has been missed.  In short, we do all the work, and suffer all the headaches in selling your plane for you. And we do it successfully.

Are you too busy to answer calls and to effectively market your plane? Why not let Lear Stevens Aviation Services take this cumbersome, time consuming task off your hands? The average number of callers you receive for every serious buyer is 10 to 1.  Do you really have the time to sort through the "tire kickers" until you find the perfect buyer for your aircraft?  We do because that's what we do; we match the right buyers with the appropriate seller's aircraft to expedite a final sale. 



Aircraft Buyer's Agent:


As your representative, your interests are our only priority. Finding just the right aircraft is extremely time consuming and often, frustrating. Each aircraft owner feels their plane is the best plane on the market and occasionally, that's true. Specific questions about previous ownership, the location of the aircraft during its airworthy life, the maintenance records and required paperwork are all considerations for Lear Stevens Aviation Services that we will address as a third party acting on your behalf for all planes for sale. Like in all large acquisitions, having that "go-to" person to act in your interest is definitely a plus.


With many years under our belt, we've successfully acted as the Buyer's Agent within the United States and Internationally. As experienced Buyer's Agents, we have matched buyers and sellers world-wide with the ideal aircraft to meet the mission because as our repeat customer's state, we know aircraft inside and out. Lear Stevens Aviation Services has matched hundreds of buyers with the appropriate seller's aircraft to expedite a final sale.


If you're moving from General Aviation to Business Class Aviation, we can help. Or if your family is expanding and you simply need more space, we can locate the perfect plane to meet your requirements. When we find the right aircraft for you as per your request, we'll perform a CAVA Certified Aircraft Value Appraisal to determine the market value for airplanes for sale. Once you've made the decision to buy, we'll close it, file the required FAA documentation and transport the aircraft to you. With Lear Stevens Aviation Services as your right seat, buying an aircraft has never been easier.

This is a service provided for those busy professionals who love their planes - while they are in the air - but do not have the time to oversee the care and maintenance needed to keep their aircraft in top shape. 

We will expertly oversee the care of your aircraft, and provide a hanger (space available) if you do not have one.  We'll coordinate and follow up on the necessary maintenance inspections to keep your plane airworthy, and conduct flight checks for you when you are too busy to do so.

We have a network of financiers, banks and institutions that we deal with on a professional basis. In some cases, we have secured financing for our buyers at 100% with no down payment.  Although rare, under the right circumstances it can be done.  We will advise you where to go to get the best rates possible on your aircraft.  



CAVA Certified Aircraft Value Appraisals, Market Analysis and Pre-Buy Inspections:

As former NAAA Certified Aircraft Appraisers, we know there are thousands of banks, government organizations, and other entities across the United States, Canada and Mexico that specify a certified trained appraisers perform their aircraft appraisals. Every day others recognize the importance of documenting and knowing the actual fair market value of the aircraft. These organizations consider a certified appraisal performed by a certified trained appraiser to be the most accurate method available.

Our (CAVA) Certified Aircraft Value Appraisers will thoroughly and accurately evaluate the current aircraft market prices for you. This will give you an exact expectation of what the market will bear for your aircraft. The appraisal includes considerations for standard equipment, credits for added equipment or compliances, considerations for total time on the airframe and engine hours or rotations, exterior and interior condition and amenities, and avionics. Out of consideration for our customers, our CAVA Appraisal fees are substantially reduced or eliminated entirely for our Aircraft Sales and/or Buyer Customer.  

In addition, if you fly your plane to us, we will examine the maintenance records and perform a visual inspection. Albeit, this is not a mechanical inspection, in most cases the visual inspection will alert you to any squawks that need attention prior to your buyer having an inspection completed. We will help you get your plane in the best possible condition for resale. Out of consideration for our customers, our Pre-Purchase Inspection fees are substantially reduced or eliminated entirely for our Aircraft Sales and/or Buyer Customers.
