Location, location, location. If you are selling your aircraft, you want a captive, engaged, and qualified audience. Thousands of pilots attend AOPA’s Fly-Ins, making it the perfect venue to sell your aircraft. And for those who are in the market, one-stop shopping will make buying even easier.
Check out the Trade-A-Plane Aircraft Sellers Corral at the AOPA Fly-Ins in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Carbondale, Illinois; and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Pilots who own piston aircraft can display their aircraft and talk with potential buyers. It costs just $99 to be included in the corral. For being a part of the coral, owners will receive a seller’s package from AOPA Ownership Services that includes a Vref valuation as well as a financing and insurance model. AOPA limits the corral to 25 aircraft, so be sure to reserve your spot early.
The Aircraft Sellers Corral launched at the AOPA Fly-In at Camarillo, California, in April 2017. Since then, more than a dozen aircraft have been shown in the corral at the various fly-ins, offering sellers prime space to display their aircraft.
During the 2018 Fly-In season, the Trade-A-Plane Aircraft Sellers Corral will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Friday during the show weekend, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
