Quick Tips & Red-flags
- Do diligent in researching the buyers and sellers.
- When a deal sounds to be too good to be true, it probably is.
- Take notice of the written/spoken language. The majority of the aviation industry uses English as the main form of communication.
- Take notice of the knowledge of the buyers and sellers when asking details of the listing.
- We provide the option to list phone to call and talk but finalizing any deals should have written records such as emails, texts, and documents.
- If dealing with a dealer or major known seller in the industry, make sure to look at their email address. Major known seller will typically use their company email address to conduct business and not email address from yahoo, google, outlook, etc.
