Financing options for more than aircraft purchases

The AOPA Aircraft Financing Program offers more than just financing to purchase an aircraft. The program has expanded to include financing options to install avionics, upgrade an aircraft, and refinance an existing loan. Whether you're purchasing an aircraft, refinancing, or making improvements, the AOPA Aircraft Financing Program may be able to help you. Plus, to make those monthly payments more affordable, a 25-year term option is available. An expanded financing program that also includes financing for some experimental and kit aircraft makes the AOPA Aircraft Financing Program among the most competitive in the industry. Call 800/62-PLANE (627-5263) or visit the Web site today for a rate quote or to complete an application.
